Yeah, REM are probably still my favorite traditionally-arranged rock band by quite a margin. I honestly think everything they did from Murmur through the end of Up is next to perfect, with only a couple very minor blemishes along the way.

Has this leaked in any high quality yet? I've only seen it in 128.

I'm hesitant to listen to this because I've only heard Murmur-through-Automatic. I've heard none of the later albums.

I think you'd enjoy New Adventures.

He'd better if he knows what's good for him.

I would still go chronologically and start with Monster. It's a very accessible album, and it brings the RAWK.

Can't go wrong with that plan either. Monster features several of my very favorite REM tracks - Let Me In, Tongue, What's The Frequency Kenneth?

Those three + Circus Envy are my favorites on there.

The only songs I don't care much for on the album are Bang and Blame (generic) and King of Comedy.

I wouldn't consider myself a HUGE R.E.M. fan, somewhere between casual and hardcore. I actually enjoy ATS more than OOT, which IMO is a complete turd with LMR and Country Feedback throw on. Love the 3 songs I've heard from CIN, but I'm being old school and waiting for the release, since it's not an album I really care about.

My ranking:

New Adventures
Murmurs
Life's rich pageant
Automatic for the People
Document
Reckoning
Up
Reveal
Around the Sun
Fables
Monster
Accelerate
Green








Out of Time

Look forward to seeing where CIN ranks. People have always found it odd, but I'm actually a big supporter of the Up, Reveal and ATS trio. I think that sonically, there's some interesting and beautiful music being made. I think that Accelerate is a retreat to more comfortable territory and while it's not bad, it just didn't catch the world on fire.

Sometimes I really hate abbreviations.

Yeah, why can't they just write it Rapid Eye Movements like a non-lazy person!

My favs on CIN are: D, EIYTW, IHT, OMH, MMBMBAI, and B. CIN is better than A,R or ATS, but still ranks below M, R, FOTR, LRP, D, G, OOT, AFTP, M, NAIHF, or U.

Doesn't R.E.M. in this case supposedly mean "rapid ear movement"?
