Pretty much my feelings after a couple of listens. I agree with GAF re: the guitar; sounds really good.

It's weirding me out to see people suddenly appear here who actually like Reveal.

I think I liked about 6 or 7 tracks from it but I also like The Beach Boys. I thought Accelerate was boring and Around the Sun like some kind of horrible skin disease or a joke played on the fans from the band. My favorite REM albums are:

Reckoning
eponymous (greatest hits)
Out of time
Automatic for the people
New Adventures in HI-FI
Reveal

I like it , for the most part, the only album of theirs I don't really listen to is ATS.

Reveal is not a good album. But it has 3 or 4 songs that I am really rather fond of.

It's definitely near the bottom of their catalog, but like with U2 (not that U2 has ever sunk anywhere near the level of Reveal or ATS :shudder I'll take them on an off day over 99% of the mainstream.

I love the Beach Boys, but ...

I agree with this.

After being disappointed with Accelerate (it was good, just somehow disappointing to me), this track got me a little excited. It seems a bit more interesting than Accelerate.

Also, I don't hate Around the Sun; there are a few songs I quite like. I think Reveal is worse.

All I can say about Reveal is that I enjoy the songs "Imitation of Life" and "I've Been High" ("Beachball" is decent and "Fascinating" should not have been a b-side). Around the Sun gave me "Leaving New York" and "Electron Blue."

Accelerate is significantly better and, hopefully, REM has taken some of the energy from that album and pushed it forward. I'm excited about Collapse Into Now

Fascinating wasn't a b-side, it was never released officially by R.E.M.. It was on a different master of Reveal, which was leaked. Although the band allowed one of their fan clubs to offer free downloads of it.

Also, cause I'm bored:

Automatic for the People
Around the Sun
New Adventures In Hi-Fi
Out of Time
Monster
Murmur
Up
Document
Accelerate
Lifes Rich Pageant
Reckoning
Fables of the Reconstruction
Green
Reveal

EDIT: Also, the new song is pretty great.

Hats off for being unique, you must be the only person I've ever seen rank ATS that high.

Probably. Like I said, never will get the hate towards it. Such a beautiful album. And maybe one of the albums I have listened the most in my entire life.

Anyway, I think I finallly completed their official discography in mp3. I was missing only a few b-sides, now I found them.
