New REM album streaming

http://myspace.com/rem/rem.swf

Thar ya go. Don't know how long it'll be up.
Upon first listen, it's better than Up or Reveal, but still very mid-tempo, Leaving NY and Around the Sun are the best on it.

Thanks for the link.

I got tickets to see them at the SECC in Glasgow promoting this record, and to be honest, I'm not really feelin' it. There's not enough variation of tempo's for my liking. The record never really gets going. There's some nice songs on it though, I like Electron Blue and High Speed Train. I just wish there was some faster paced songs.

I miss the REM that made Monster and New Adventures In Hi-Fi. Still, I'm looking forward to seeing them again, they're a hell of a live band.

Ha! Ha! I just got the email, too. I listened to the album 4 times today and it's growing on me. It's much more mellow than I thought it would be.

sounds pretty great
but it's safe to say this is not the more rocking album we were promissed around the release of "Bad Day"

I keep wondering if older bands just can't write classics anymore.
it the age of the instant classic gone?

I really like leaving new york.
haven't heard anything else yet

I think it's their best album since "Automatic". I LOVE The Outsiders. Great lyrics... Around The Sun is such a nice hopeful song. Awesome vocals on "The Ascent Of Man"

so, I listened to it

R.E.M continues to bore

I love slow songs...most of what I listen to is mellow. But this is not up to par

there are a few keepers...but REM will never write anything so instantly memorable as Everybody Hurts
