Is there anyone who likes Old Man Kensey? It' probably my favourite on the album.

Can't even tell you how it goes.

I'd be surprised if any of the band members could, either.

Wish I heard What's The Frequency Kenneth on the radio more often than I do.

I just hear the Document singles and Losing My Religion on a constant loop.

oh yeah, they play losing my religion from time to time as well. probably more often than it's the end... actually. it's just that every time i turn on the radio, if i listen to two particular stations for any length of time (say, switching between them for an hour, two tops), i WILL hear driver 8 at some point. sure, it's a good song and i'm so glad they i get that over everybody hurts or man on the moon. i just don't understand when you've got such a long-running band with so many good singles--including many more recent and much more popular ones, why that particular song?

i'd put that mystery in the same category as why do they also play "two princes" on the same sort of regular basis.



i would love to hear WTFK in its place. pretty sure i'll never get sick of that song.

I don't think I'd heard Driver 8 in my life until buying Fables a few weeks back.

I like Old Man Kensey. I could not, however, identify Good Advices.

Great song. I loved it when I first heard it back in 94 (?) and I love it now. Monster as a whole is underappreciated, I think.

If you have something to say to me, Cori, then just say it.

That's only the half of it:

Great song.

Sterogum ranks R.E.M. albums

R.E.M. Albums From Worst To Best R.E.M. - Around The Sun – Stereogum

Up should be higher

The AV Club had a good series about REM over the past year as well. The comment section was fun, too.

I'm surprised New Adventures in Hi Fi was ranked so high. I think I'm going to give that album another spin.

I've never properly warmed to it. Lose four tracks and I'm on board.

Automatic and Murmur were too low on that list. I can't understand people who prefer Reckoning, Murmur's less mysterious, less consistent younger brother.

Didn't like the list, didn't like the commentary, but great band though.

I may have to give New Adventures a spin in the near future too. I honestly prefer Dead Letter Office more.

Shiny Happy People: worst song in the catalog?

Cloying and potentially embarrassing? Yes. Worst song? Not even close.

Yeah, the list seemed to follow the script that almost all of those lists follow: praise the IRS albums and Automatic, chastise everything else. Every one of these looks almost identical.
