Even since the drummer left. It's amazing to see how important he was to REM. I think he kept the other 3 in check as far as being to "artsy fartsy."

If by "shame" you mean talented pop song masters, than yes, I agree with you. Their albums UP, Reveal, and Around the Sun are all flawed in certain ways, but they are still very solid pop albums. Reveal for one just amazes me more every time I listen to it. And Up took me over a year to even begin to appreciate it. Now it's one of my favorite R.E.M. albums. These three just take a lot of time. Around the Sun is still pretty fresh, and hasn't really revealed itself yet, no pun intended. I'm sure though that in time, again...no pun..., it will proove to be just a great as UP and Reveal.

I think Up is a decent album, but after that, REM has turned into over-produced background music. Still, I'd say they are easily in the top 4 band ever as far as back catalogue goes, their first 4 albums are wonderful and they squeezed in a couple of masterpieces in the 1990s.

I don't think its so much keeping artistic pretensions in check, its more that the songs lack his presence, he was an integral ingredient to their sound, and that chemistry is no longer there.
