I only read enough of it to see who the non-James Franco person was.

Clearly, I care a lot.

I like the album. Am not over the moon about it or anything. But there are definitely a handful of tracks that I really dig. I've only had two listens all the way through, though. I'll probably say more later.

Stipe is on Jimmy Fallon tonight. And so is Miley.

Be still my heart.

I like the album very much
the next couple of months will tell how much

it's a bit of a mix of Around the Sun (which I enjoy very much) and the best bits of Accelerate (my least favourite REM album)
but 'warmer'

I think Stipe is still brilliant

The last 3 times I've come to the thread to see new posts, I see this line and immediately sing this song in my head.

I quoted a line from E-Bow the Letter as my status on Facebook a year or so ago, and no one knew what I was talking about.

Aluminum tastes like fear?

I remember when I first heard that song on the radio, on whatever Milwaukee station was most likely to play new REM.

The DJ was all "Here's REM's new single! I haven't heard it yet!" and then it was done, and he was all "So ..... Hmm. That was REM's new single, I guess."

It took a while to grow on me, but now I love it. It's gorgeous.

"Dreaming of Maria Callas, whoever she is"

I got some sarcastic texts from friends telling me to keep my perverse dreams to myself, so I took the status down.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but E-Bow is the last great R.E.M. song. Just about everything in that song works splendidly.

Electron Blue is quite good...

But I'd say the last great REM tune is probably "Imitation of Life" ..."Bad Day" is quite solid, too...

"Aftermath" is the only track from the last three albums that I would consider putting in a boxed set of my favorite 100 R.E.M. tracks....I guess I'd go with that as their last outstanding number although pretty much everything on Accelerate is quite good, if not classic.
