Glad this was bumped so I could enjoy a little lunch time hate exchange that I missed the other day.

But really, every time this thread gets bumped I can't help but leap to the wildly implausible conclusion that the reunion tour has been announced.

I'd lose most of the respect I have for them if they announced a reunion tour a year after breaking up.

Also, at this point, Bill Berry or GTFO.

Grrrrr, the bonus disc bait again. I've bought three of these for that 2nd disc (that I've probably listened to once), and this looks like more of the same.

I already have Document on CD, DVD-A, and DualDisc. Had it on cassette back in the day as well. Really don't feel like springing for it again, but it's easily in my top 10 albums of forever.

I wonder if the vinyl comes with a download of the bonus disc. I would definitely consider buying that.

You're not a real fan unless you own every issue in every medium available.

Is there an R.E.M. album that concludes as insubstantially and generically as Accelerate? I never listen air it through Reveal or Around the Sun but surely they don't have the auto-pilot nature of Horse To Water or the inanity of I'm Gonna DJ.

I like Horse To Water pretty well.

I have no explanation for I'm Gonna DJ, however; it is inexcusably horrible.

Once Laz gets a hard on for a song, album or band, he never lets it go and never lets you forget.....

This. I still like Accelerate quite a bit. Living Well is the Best Revenge is the best rocker they did in ages.

Rest of the album is entertaining if occasionally slight. Something like Hollow Man is great but ends just as it's getting started.

But Horse To Water...no. I'd like someone to explain to me what in this song puts it above generic. If I wanted to listen to Reckoning I'd put it on and hear something 10x better like Pretty Persuasion. And the stuff on Monster had a lot more character.

Standouts for me are Submarine, Mr. Richards, and the title track.

Hollow Man is just embarrassing and certainly a low point of the album. Mr.Richards is pretty dull too. Other than that, I like the album just fine. Horse To Water has more energy than 90% of Around the Sun, and it seems like the band just wants to rock for 3 minutes.

If all you're looking for is energy, ok. Yeah, it was a relief after Around the Sun, but I prefer a little substance to go with it.

Auto-pilot.
