How to complete the REM collection?

Yes, I thought I'd better make this a poll!

I have a best of (sue me) featuring songs from all these albums, and I enjoy the Lifes (eat the apostrophe) Rich Pageant songs the best, so I'll have to go with that.

Aaaaahhh yes, an REM question. I LOVE them and would be happy to give my 2 cents. I say Murmur, for two reasons. One, it is their first, so it's a good starting off point. Second, it is AMAZING and it is regarded by fans and critics alike as one of the greatest debut albums ever.

It is my second favorite REM album, right after Life's Rich Pageant which I would recommend getting second. It has a raw energy and spirit that you won't find on any of their albums before or since.

And I know you're not asking, but then I would say check out some newer stuff, Automatic, Green, Monster, Up, etc...

Can't miss with Murmur and Document.

I voted for Murmur though, I like the first 2 albums a lot...

Life's Rich Pageant, people, come on!

LRP is like Murmur, except better. It's like they made Murmur, kind of scratched their heads, and said, "You know, this is really fucking good, but we can do better." So they sobered up, took lots of long walks, went vegan, and came back and made Life's Rich Pageant. And it was good.

I only have 90's REM, and their latest release. Am I missing something?

If I had to make a choice between their early stuff, and all of their later stuff, I'd choose the early albums.

Murmur is probably still their most critically acclaimed album, followed by Document and Automatic for the People.
