R.E.M. ceased to exist for me when Bill Berry left. Nothing they've done since then can compare to their Bill Berry-era work.

Thanks for uploading that ... but what site is it? You need to type out the name of the site with a space or something; Interference automatically blanks some of them out when typed as one word.

I really like what they tried to do on Up, and I feel like Bill's spirit was still floating around the studio at that point.

It wasn't until Reveal that they started making boring, old white guy music.

I bought Up with high expectations, and while there are a few songs on it I liked, it just wasn't the same to me. Back in the 90s, R.E.M. and U2 were about neck and neck with being my favorite band, but U2 easily took over when R.E.M. released Up.

That said, I never got to see them in their heyday, so I'd still go see them now.

Hmmmm, I think Reveal is a helluva lot more interesting than Up as a whole. Up has a few songs I like, don't get me wrong, but overall it's kinda dull.

And I'm the opposite - I find Reveal hellishly dull. Up is nowhere near the top of my REM lists, but I'd rather listen to that one than Reveal.

Reveal makes a great drink coaster, or sleeping pill.

That's about it.

ATS does have one of my all time favorite R.E.M. songs, "Leaving New York", and Reveal is a decent mellow album featuring the awesome songs "Imitation of Life" and "All the Way to Reno" so while the albums might have been overall weaker they still prove they can write a great track, and hopefully with renewed energy they can have a great 2008.

They've been around for 20 years, of course they're able to write a decent track or two before each album. So can the Stones. I'm not impressed. It's putting together 10 or so with some weight to it and making a great LP that's the problem.
