R.E.M.

Post by astronaut on Mon Aug 15, 2011 8:40 pm



An alternative rock band from Athens, Georgia. Their latest album, Collapse Into Now, came out back in March. They're like the patriarchs of alt rock Smile

From left to right- Peter Buck (guitar, mandolin, etc.), Michael Stipe (vocals), and Mike Mills (bass, piano, backing vocals). Missing from the picture is their original drummer, Bill Berry, who left in 1997.

They're a great band! I only live an hour from Athens, too! Oh, how amazing it would have been to watch them perform in their early years.

Reveal (along with the rest of their post-Berry albums) gets a lot of flak, but it's like the soundtrack of my life. She Just Wants To Be, Saturn Return, Disappear, I'll Take The Rain. Reveal is just better than anyone gives it credit for.

I've only hear their first five or six records, I believe.

I need to get into their music.

Monster, New Adventures in Hi-Fi and Automatic for the People are all brilliant. Out of Time has some good songs, but it's spottier IMO than those.
