R.E.M. - upcoming album 'Collapse Into Now' / General Discussion

I couldn't find a general R.E.M. thread, so here's a new one. It seems they've titled LP15 Collapse Into Now and it's done, but they won't release it until spring of next year, .

Anyway, here's the news:

R.E.M.’s new album will be called Collapse Into Now Consequence of Sound

R.E.M., probably my favorite American band of all time.

Probably mine as well.

Good thinking with an official thread.

I'm excited for the album.

What did you think of Accelerate cori? I thought was a welcome return of energy to their sound, although I wouldn't mind them pairing the energy of their early 90's work with the layers of sound from the likes of Up and Reveal.

That said, they still absolutely kill it live, their tour in support of Accelerate was awesome.

We did that in Random right when we first heard the news. Just seems a little premature when there's no other information.

I think R.E.M. deserves their own general discussion thread, the upcoming album being just a part of that.

For instance, they also have a DVD of their 2008 Austin City Limits performance out on Tuesday.

I agree with ph24.

Until we actually hear new music, we can always discuss how awesome Stipe's beard is.

Shut up, Lazarus. Just shut up and get the fuck out of here until we deem it acceptable for you to return, you cur.

Go.

OK, laz, that was extremely well played. And an awesome track to boot.

On the one hand, I liked that Accelerate was a back to basics thing, that they sounded more energized than they had in years.

On the other hand, it wasn't as good as I was hoping. It lacked a spark, and came across like "okay, here's our back to basics record, is this good enough?"

No, it wasn't. I do like some of the songs, but I didn't love the record. Points for effort, though.

All of what Cori said. Only Sing For the Submarine and Mr. Richards had any kind of real depth. There are plenty of bands I can get my abrupt rockers from, thank you.

The last two songs are weak, that war song is embarrassing (as was The Final Straw before it), and some of the other ones, however enjoyable, are rather generic.

But it's still better than the geriatric shit they were dumping out with the previous two albums, which made Shuttlecock's albums from those comparative years look like the work of hungry, fiery youths.

A step in the right direction, and there's no way this won't be more sophisticated than its predecessor. I'm just a tad worried they will overcompensate again.
