Their first 2 albums are flawless. Their latest album is flaw-filled.

They've got a whole bunch of classic songs to their name, that's for sure, and Michael Stipe is a great frontman. Unfortunately, their music, fine and elegant as it is, just doesn't have enough "oomph" factor to hold my interest over an album-long period of time.

Great band. They've been recording their new album in Vancouver over the past year, and open the N. American leg of the tour in Vancouver on Friday night (the night before Radiohead plays). Interesting tid bit: a buddy of mine has a producer friend in Vancouver whose wife has been Michael Stipe's physical therapist during the recording of the album. Now she's going along with them on tour. Michael Stipe was just in Dublin, and introduced her to Bono, and Bono hired her, too! She called from a party at Bono's house, and said it was like being at The White House with all the security. I love these 6 degrees of separation stories...

Anyway, here's a cool article on REM (how they write songs and how the album is coming along), and their opening show in Vancouver:

Yes Squid, that's a great song indeed. I love that album. 'The One I Love' is a beautiful song.

I also think "The Lifting" is a great tune as well.

The Lifting is a great tune. Also, Walk Unafraid is supposedly inspired by Bono.

I think that Leave is also one of their best tunes.

Like U2 I grew up with REM! Dad has great taste in music!

Automatic For The People is probably one of my all time favourite albums! Stipe is great love REM! Wish I could have seen them at Glastonbury this year, looked amazing on TV!

Great band, love them.

I love REM!
Losing My Religion, Man on The Moon, Electrolicte and Ill Take The Rain are one of the best songs ever.
