Me too! My first REM show. I think they played Maps And Legends in our show too. Wait, we might have gone to the same show seeing we both are from Jersey!

Green is one of my favorite R.E.M. albums. The only song I skip on it is Stand. That's an annoying song. But the rest is gorgeous and fierce. "Get Up" is a killer rocker, and Orange Crush is a lyrical masterpiece. But it's the slower tracks that really do it for me. "You Are The Everything" is one of the most beautiful ballads ive ever heard. "World Leader Pretend" is awe-inspiring. And "The Wrong Child" is heart-breaking. Micheal's vocals on that song send shivers down my spine.

Yeah. I love Green.

Haha. No shit? Did you see the Atlantic City show? Micheal told us how an older couple was celebrating their anniversary and had met the band in the casino and requested Maps and Legends. That was cool as hell. "I've Been High" was definitely the highlight of the show for me though. Which is on Reveal by the way. You should buy that album too.

World Leader Pretend is not only my favorite song from Green, it's probably like Top 10 or 15.

AC, huh? I went to the MSG show, the day after Bush was re-elected. It was a thursday evening I remember and there was just this air of disappointment lurking over the city and the venue that day, I'm not kidding! Michael started the show by saying "I'm not gonna talk much, we're just gonna play the songs!"

I've listened to Chronic Town before on a friend's cassette and I loved it. Wanna get it on CD.
It's not available on its own anymore, but the songs from it are all on the Dead Letter Office compilation.

You're right. Ooh, except I just noticed that the original EP might be available from Amazon.com Market sellers in Used or Like New condition.

I need to see a full REM show.

I saw them with Bruce Springsteen on the Vote For Change tour a few years ago. Nothing like seeing Bruce and Mike sing Man on the Moon together.

Definitely one of the highlights of my concert going experiences.

Oh man! I sooo wanted to check out that Vote For Change tour, but didn't get around to buying tix. Mike and Bruce singing Man On The Moon must've been something else!

I saw Bono sing with REM at a Valentine's Day tribute to Bono at the Kodak theater a few years ago. That was fucking amazing. No Doubt did a song, so did Lauryn Hill, and a few other artists.

Seen REM in full a few times, but not recently, sadly.

Get Fables.

It was Bruce. Staying at home wasn't an option, lol.

Btw, as you guys can see from my sig, I listened to samples of Chronic Town from Dead Letter Office on allmusic.com. Don't know why last.fm scrobbles even 30 second samples!

Reveal:

"Imitation of Life"
"Disappear" (inspired by Radiohead's "How to Disappear Completely, so it's Michael Stipe acting like Thom Yorke acting like Michael Stipe)
"All the Way to Reno"
"The Lifting"
"Summer Turns to High" (which could be their most beautiful track since "Why Not Smile")

The Lifting is a great song, I do not really like the rest. I'm, admittedly, more old school REM.
