The Celebration Rock podcast did an episode recently about Automatic for the People and why R.E.M. seems to have faded from view as one of the quintessential alt rock bands of all time.

It's worth a listen, even if Hyden's being kind of a whiny, hipster, idiot (which he calls himself out on a bit) at the beginning. It's a good episode.



I thought it was one of the better eps of this podcast. Brian Koppelman had lots of really insightful & interesting things to say about the band.

I agree. Do you know what Koppelman's podcast is? He mentioned it in the segment. I'd love to give it a listen.

It's called "The Moment with Brian Koppelman" I believe it comes from Slate. Excited to hear the Peter Buck/Corin Tucker episode he teased.

Oh that's hilarious. A friend recommended that to me a few weeks ago and I've got a few episodes waiting for me. I didn't realize he was the host. Too funny.

ugh, that dude was sort of insufferable when he did the Pearl Jam episodes.

Koppelman is a screenwriter and entrepreneur who somehow manages to mention his work on the screenplay for Rounders in every episode I've listened to.

:lol:

Oh boy. Well, he didn't mention it here. But that's probably because Steven Hyden did it for him.

I listened to Automatic again the other night. It holds up. It'll never mean to me what it means to others but it's clearly a top 3 record in R.E.M.'s canon (my personal #2).
