REM rehearse new album in Dublin

Looked for a thread on this. . . .

But footage and clips all over you tube.

I predict that this will be the big comeback record for REM.

I didn't get Reveal or Around The Sun. Up is the last one I have. So it'll be interesting to see if they change their sound or stay on the adult alternative path.

I second this

While the Post-Berry albums aren't as spectacular as the other albums by R.E.M. standards, they're still pretty great. I'm really excited for this.

I hope so, that last album bored the piss out of me.

Well, they certainly looked damn happy in Dublin



I'm hoping for New Adventures II.

"Living Well is the Best Revenge,"
"Staring Down the Barrel of the Middle Distance,"
"Accelerate,"
"Mr. Richards,"
"Disguised"
"Horse to Water,"
"Man Size Wreath,"
"I'm Gonna DJ."
"Until the Day is Done"
"On the Fly"
"Houston"


All song titles seem queintessentially REM.

I think they were playing "I'm Gonna DJ" on their last tour, when they were supporting Around the Sun.

The Dublin rehearsals are floating around on dimeadozen, the torrent site. Good stuff! I've listened a few times -- not enough to know the songs real well yet, but enough to have a pretty favorable impression. I know some people are saying the new material marks a return to the quality of the '80s or early '90s.

I seem to be getting more into REM lately...especially the 90's albums:

Automatic
Monster
Up

I haven't been keeping up on my R.E.M. news. SHAME ON ME.

I had no idea. This new album came out of nowhere for me. Wowsers. Nice. Song titles kick ass. I heard I'm Gonna DJ live back in 2004...kicked butt.

Hopefully this will mark a return to form for them. Around the Sun was a pretty mediocre album, and downright awful by REM-standards.

WOO! That's all for now.

I would LOVE to see both REM and Radiohead in 2008. It seems possible too, at this point.

But seriously, as much REM love as I have in me...just give me a new Radiohead album. Please? This is torture by now.
