I like R.E.M.'s older material a lot, but anything 1987-2001 is more game for me.

Document
Green
Out of Time
Automatic
MONSTER! (did not age too well, but still good)
New Adventures (Leave is the best swan song for any band member ever.)
Up (amazing songs on here)
Reveal (solid effort with 2 or 3 R.E.M. classics)

Do not, at any point, ignore Reckoning...it has some true classics:

7 Chinese Brothers
Pretty Persuasion
Camera
Don't Go Back To Rockville

I take back what I said about Murmur earlier. It is so good!!! On my second consecutive listen right now. It's just hard to understand what the hell Stipe is singing.

Murmur is my favorite R.E.M. album.

Reckoning. Need my Harborcoat.

The next REM album I want is the one due this year.

Perhaps this is the year they break the slump and retake their place in the rock pantheon.

I LOVE that song! That one and "Imitation of Life" are the only two songs I really like on Reveal. "All the Way to Reno" is okay.

I didn't like Around the Sun until I saw them on that tour, and then it clicked with me. They played "Life and How to Live It" at that show, and I just about died in ecstasy.

That song is reason alone to get Fables, by the way.

Wake Up Bomb

New Test Leper

Bittersweet Me

Undertow

Michael started the show by saying "I'm not gonna talk much, we're just gonna play the songs!"
I was at that show too! They opened (for the first and only time) with It's the End of the World as We Know It. It was an great show, complete with Michael dropping trou at the end and being carried off the stage!

He still had his boxers on...I wonder if I can find a picture (I remember there were some on Murmurs after the show).

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.
If you find a copy of it on its own, it will be cassette or vinyl. The only time Chronic Town was released on CD was as part of DLO.

"When I was in college, it was the Pixies and REM that changed my life"--Thom Yorke in the Coachella film.

I am so waiting for REM to change my life again with a new record this year.

Okay, so I bought Fables... but it's on vinyl (got it for just $1.99 ) and I don't have a record player yet! Can't wait to listen to it!

Ha! Considering you'll spend more money on a turntable, you would have come out more fiscally responsible just buying the CD.

I kid. Sometimes I want a turntable.
