You needed further clarification?

As for Stipe's vocals. Hmm. I'd say they aren't the weakest thing about the band. The weakest for me is that for some reason, even though I know they aren't, alot of the songs sound the same to me (or maybe put me in a similar mood) if I listen to too many of them at once.

So, in that regard, I'd say for me they're more like Coldplay than U2. Except about a 100 times better, and I like REM and I love U2. (see what I did there)

Oh, and about his vocals. I'll probably get laughed at, but Nightswimming. That's just pure gold, imo.

So logically, if Coldplay sound like U2, and REM sound like Coldplay, then U2 must sound like REM..?

I just can't get this image out of my head.

REM are pretty brilliant...NAIHF is one of my all-time favourite albums. I just could not get into the last album, however. Even after 20 or so listens, it seemed flat and overreaching. Perhaps it's time to bring back full-faced drummers.
