Rocks? It's cool, but it doesn't exactly grab you by the throat like the others.

Not that Lotus should have opened the album.

Maybe Hope?

Seriously, it's OK, but not album-opening material.

Maybe Walk Unafraid should have opened that album.

syntax error!

Hope was I think one of my very first favorites on Up.. along with Daysleeper.

You're looking for salvation
And you're looking for deliverance
You're looking like an idiot
And you no longer care...

Airportman should have been cut much shorter (maybe to a minute) and tacked to the beginning of Lotus. Why have it (Lotus) as a second track?

Hearing Walk Unafraid at my first R.E.M. concert (first concert ever) was one of the greatest moments on my life.

I think they played it at my first show too. Not sure though. At MSG right after Bush won re-election, ugh!

As the sun comes up, as the moon goes down...

Good opening, eh?

I'm sorry that your first R.E.M. show was Bill Berry-less.

I saw them first on the Monster tour, 15th row.

I remember loving Undertow before I even knew what it was, as they were playing Hi-Fi stuff on that whole tour.

And why the fuck wasn't Revolution put on Hi-Fi?

Also, Hope does seem a little weird, but it builds nicely. Those bass synths at the end are Radiohead-worthy. (bum bum...badum-bump)

My first REM show will probably be next year. Not only post-Bill Berry, but post-Up. How sad is that?

Good point! Think Hope segueing into Cuttooth.

Mine was post Up too. But what a great show it was! Think about it this way.. you're lucky if you catch your fav band on tour even once! Loads of fans around the world prolly end up not even seeing them a single time just cos they didn't tour close to where they lived!

Yes, you're right. I should be grateful that I live within 5 hours of 4 major cities (Pittsburgh, Baltimore, DC, Philadelphia) making seeing my favorite bands pretty easy.

Plus, Radiohead and REM in the same year would be .

My suggestion: wait to hear the next album first.

And you don't want to build the post-Berry live experience up too much. It's like the girl at school you've been dreaming of for years, and when you finally get her in bed you realize that she has an artificial arm, bad breath, and is maybe actually a man.

For some reason I'm a huge fan of 'Falls to Climb' from Up. That's easily my favorite track from the album, and probably one of my favorite REM songs in general. Love singing along to that one.
