Nope, I'd never heard it until I downloaded the album yesterday. Don't think it got any airplay in New Zealand - I remember nothing pre-Orange Crush. Orange Crush (my first favourite song ever, when I was 3), Stand, Everybody Hurts, Losing My Religion, What's The Frequency are all quite vivid in my memory.

Oh, so I have to dig back into last night's superthread for the drama?

I am constantly sneezing now... I am quite a sight this morning, let me tell you people.

I am going to sleep in my car at lunchtime. I just want this stinking headache to leave already.

Wow, that's amazing. Fall On Me is one of their best songs ever. It's just gorgeous.

I'm proofreading something for a coworker, and I'm rewarding myself after every page by reading this thread.

Actually, I feel the same way about country. If you look at recent country, well yeah, it's absolutely awful - but back in the roots there was a lot of really good stuff, some of the best music I've ever heard. Appalachian musicians before Johnny Cash was even born, for example.

Nu-metal is filth. Nobody in the world should like nu-metal, it's the bane of all music, not just metal. That's probably the only genre where NOTHING is good.

Heh, I'm glad to hear that. Yeah, I'll get going to that right now.
Yeah, I'd totally blow my prog/metal cred if I found myself enjoying rap - though then I remind myself why the fuck I should care, especially since I have no prog/metal cred anyway thanks to U2. Some of the politically conscious rap acts sound like they might be interesting. And yeah, I find recent country utterly intolerable, but the bits of older stuff I've heard haven't been so objectionable, though still not my thing. As for Johnny Cash, I will say that his cover of One doesn't save the song from being shit but at least improves on U2's version. Incidentally, my mother hates Mr Cash with a raging passion because my grandfather played his music almost non-stop when she was a little girl.

Nu-metal has been completely disowned by the metal world. There is a lot of bickering about "true" metal, but EVERYBODY can agree that nu-metal is an abomination that must be shunned. Metalcore is looking like it is going to receive the same treatment in the next few years.

I'm pretty confident you will like some of the tracks. I personally love Starsail and The Sun, The Sea.

Yeah, I'm quite taken by it. And LRP's first four tracks are almost a match for the awesomeness of Fables' first four.

Fables is my favourite REM, closely followed by Reckoning, but the rest is up for grabs. On my early listens of LRP, the only tracks I didn't care for are Swan Swan H and Superman, and the start of I Believe is irritating. The first four tracks and The Flowers Of Guatemala are fantastic.

I'm hoping for a quiet day at work ... if only so I can spend some quality time being a postwhore.


Two more days of work until I'm off for a week + one day. I love it when a holiday is on a Friday.

Flowers of Guatemala is criminally underrated. It's a beautiful song.

There should be an R.E.M. Survivor one of these days in B&C.
