I'm not really sure why it's the lead single, doesn't do a whole lot for me. I at least liked Discoverer quite a bit on the first few listens, this one didn't do much of anything for me. It's still nice, just not thrilling. I guess that's been REM's problem exactly for a number of years now though, unfortunately. Nice, but not thrilling, songs and albums.

This project had a lot of potential, though I'm getting the feeling there were a lot of ideas cooking and not enough central organization. Of course this is having heard 3 songs and others' reaction to a fourth.

JK, that's far and away my favorite RH song.



Anyway, back to the topic at hand - haven't listened to the new REM tunes too much, but I'd have to say that "Mine Smell Like Honey" is my favorite. Glad it's the first single (not like it's going to take the world by storm either way, but I find it the most immediately accessible - an enjoyable, breezy summer song).

Too bad it's the middle of winter. At least in the country where the band is from.

At least you don't have to shovel snow out in LA.

Should we talk about the weather, or stay focused on this new album?

You're welcome.
And yeah, that's my feelings now too. However I've only listened to Mine Like once, right before posting the link (and it's in shitty quality too, so I'll wait to compare it to the other songs.)
It Happened Today is so fuckin' awesome though.

I see what you did there .

I still have yet to check out the other songs shared in here. I have no problem with not waiting, though I understand the reasoning from those who do . Will give them a listen later tonight at some point.

These motherfunkers seriously need to announce if they're touring this year.
