I'm excited for this because I love REM almost as much as pearl jam (sometimes more), but I don't have the same carefully ordered preferences and invested opinions. No dogs in this fight. Just love.

It's good to hear this voice doing new things again, if only for a few minutes.

I'm pretty sure that's Charles Darwin.

Be Mine is one of my favorite REM songs. Such a great guitar groove.

Michael Stipe's interview on Here's the Thing is pretty good. Probably not a lot of new stuff if you're a dedicated fan, but it was interesting for a casual fan like me.

Any idea how the band themselves regard NAIHF now? My sense is that it's considered a minor album, but it's definitely one of my faves.

No idea how they feel about it, but I think it might be their best.

New Adventures in Hi-Fi is really fucking good, but definitely a bit overrated around these parts.

Yeah, same.

And I'm pretty sure each member of the band has said Hi-Fi is either up there or their favorite; it's Stipe's favorite record by the band: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/15/arts/ ... rview.html

Quote:
We were really stretching ourselves, trying really hard to push what we did. Looking back, it makes sense that the next record would be “Automatic for the People,” that it’d be a radically different step. And the next would be “Monster,” a record that nobody liked. But everyone expected another version of “Automatic” and we weren’t about to give them that. So in a way we shot ourselves in the foot. But it turns out, 20 years later, that’s not a bad record, “Monster.” And then we released my favorite album of our entire canon, which is “New Adventures in Hi-Fi.” It’s a band at our very peak. And then, of course, Bill [Berry, the group’s original drummer] left the band.

here's a link to some really great write ups about each album. They're very well done and place the albums under the environment they were recorded and of the political era.

Question: I was going to order the Out of Time 25th anniversary package and want that live album as part of it. But my understanding is that I need to order the CDs, as there's no digital download. Really? iTunes has just the remastered album plus the demos, but not the live show....
