I don't, but are you telling me that I can find all of their b-sides digitally legally, without hunting down every last physical single?

Oooooooh. How very '80s era-ish, this is. I'm absolutely loving that guitar.

Thanks, Ronnie269, for the YouTube link. I really liked that a lot, that was fantastic . Can't wait to hear what the rest of the album will sound like.

Exactly how I feel.

Not bad, not bad at all. Off to a good start here.

As a reminder, it's the album opener as well.

Now, I'm one of these people who thinks REM will never recapture the magic or brilliance of their first three albums, and I haven't even been interested enough to listen to a couple of their recent albums ... but Discoverer is unexpectedly good. Hope the album lives up to it.

I'm wondering if that's the final album art, the title kind of collapses into black.

really liking Discoverer. Finally got the mp3 from the email which sounds even better than the youtube clip. Nice to hear it in 320 kbps. I think it works great as the album opener. Can't wait to hear the rest.

Well I'd say all we know is that it has the potential to be a great album opener, not knowing what track 2 sounds like prevents us from knowing if it truly is a strong opener or not.

I'm one of those! I started listening to REM when Accelerate came out, and now have 6 of their albums. I know a lot of people don't like reveal, but it has about 5 or 6 songs I really really like.




Also really liking Discoverer. I love the "slightest bit of finesse" lyric. Sounds very promising and I'm excited for the album!

Why are they on the cover?

That's lame.

LOL @ Axver and Lifes Rich Pageant & Document not living up to the "brilliance" of Fables.

The nerve of a band putting themselves on their own album cover!!!

It only took R.E.M. 15 tries.

Well of course I'm going to say that, since Fables is my favourite REM album; the opening trio in particular is magic. They are both good albums, LRP is thoroughly great, but I would never rank either of them ahead of Murmur, Reckoning, or Fables.
