Honestly, Microsoft Train Simulator didn't excite me as much as I thought it would. Sure, it was fun and I loved playing it, but ... it was lacking something.

Railroad Tycoon II, on the other hand, is made of shitloads of SuperWin.

It would not make a list of my top 50 R.E.M. songs but, yeah, I enjoy it.
Yeah, in some moods it'd seem obnoxious, but right now I'm bored and it's fun and I bloody well enjoyed it.

And god, a top 10 list would be hard enough!

Oh wow. You should get on that.

R.E.M. is one of my favorite bands of all-time, for sure.

I either own or have downloaded all 14 of their studio albums. And I enjoy all of them. Some more than others, obviously.

My top 5 R.E.M. albums would look something like:

1. Automatic For the People
2. Life's Rich Pageant
3. Document
4. Murmur
5. Reckoning/Fables of the Reconstruction (tied)

It's tempted me into attempting something epic though...

FS2004 - when they got it right.

All other versions are shit.

Personally, I have all the eighties albums apart from Life's Rich Pageant (which I just downloaded), Automatic, and Monster. I'd probably give my top five as:

1. Fables Of The Reconstruction
2. Reckoning
3. Document
4. Automatic For The People
5. Green

#1 and #2 are solid, but beyond that, I'm really not sure. Monster is shit besides What's The Frequency.

The only R.E.M. I own is the Best of 1988-2003 or some similar combination.

I know that solely as part of NYC and a song by Dream Theater.

Gordon Ramsey is made of win. That's all I have to say.

Monster has some definite weak moments but I enjoy it more than the trio of albums that immediately followed drummer Bill Berry's departure: Up, Reveal, and the close-to-terrible Around the Sun.

The one that came out this year, Accelerate, was fun...if a little light. But nothing will match their run from 82 to 92. Great stuff there.

I don't know who that is, though Simon Cowell and Jeremy Clarkson were making fun of him on Top Gear last night.

Right now, I'm just downloading the parts of REM's discography that I don't already have. Should be interesting to see what I make of the post-Berry stuff, as I've only heard a couple of songs from then. They didn't seem bad, though.

For me, very little is going to top tracks 1-3 of Fables and 3-5 of Reckoning.

Bah, I hate it when people upload music and don't bother to tag it. Wankers.
