    Default New REM single

    http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/page/f...serious-stream

    Even Pitchfork liked it. And most of the album is like this. Get excited if you like REM.

    I think the track is mediocre. Then again, I am not a HUGE REM fan.

    I like it. R.E.M. and Modest Mouse at the Greek is going to be epic.

    I meant to post this in the music lounge. My bad. I'll be "that guy" and post it in there too.

    After a first listen, I am liking it but not loving it. Almost sounds like another band trying to sound like REM.

    Hopefully its a grower and I am anxious to hear the rest of the album. And yeah, REM/Modest Mouse/The National at the Greek is going to kick major ass.

    Far from one of their best songs. It's as good as Losing My Religion. It's no Cuyahoga.

    "Crush with Eyeliner" has always been a personal fave.

    This song is all right, I think it's better than mediocre, tough call on first listen though. Hoping to catch them with Modest and The National this year, that's an unbelievable bill.

    Sorry, Tom. The correct answer is "Perfect Circle".

    C Dub Ya's top 5, R.E.M. songs:

    1. Pretty Persuasion
    2. Fall On Me
    3. Cuyahoga
    4. Nightswimming
    5. So. Central Rain (I'm Sorry)

    The new tune isn't bad - but it isn't great either. It's sad we have had so many dreadful R.E.M. records in recent years.

    Nice list. Agree on 4 out of the 5.

    I'm a huge REM fan, so I could talk all day about this...

    My Top 5 album list:

    1. Automatic for the People
    2. Murmur
    3. Life's Rich Pageant
    4. Out of Time
    5. Green

    Classic song, but it is so hard to listen to it now, and not hear "Voice of Harold".

    Honestly, the new album is light years better than what they have been putting out. I suggest even the most wary and jaded REM fans give it a chance upon release.
