    Default The R.E.M. Thread (For the People)

    Now that R.E.M. have announced the title of their upcoming album, the time has come to start an official R.E.M. thread on the boards for all discussion about Athens' finest.

    http://remhq.com/news_story.php?id=1225

    The album is called Collapse Into Now, which is a name I like but don't love. It's sufficiently R.E.M. sounding though, and I'm sure it will grow on me.

    PS: Paul, if you're reading this, book them for Coachella!

    New info on the new R.E.M. album:

    http://www.spin.com/articles/rem-tap...ith-next-album

    Pretty exciting to see that Patti Smith's involved, E-Bow the Letter is one of the best tunes of the Warner Brothers years. Not too mention Eddie Vedder and Peaches (WTF?).

    I haven't been excited about an R.E.M. album in a very long time but seeing them in 2008 was pretty much an awesome event at Sasquatch. They had so much energy and played so many hits. I was actually quite shocked. I saw them on the Monster tour and though it was great, this Sasquatch performance was even better.

    REM's Setlist

    1.Living Well is the Best Revenge
    2.What's the Frequency, Kenneth?

    3.These Days
    4.Drive
    5.Accelerate
    6.Auctioneer (Another Engine)
    7.Man-sized Wreath

    8.Ignoreland
    9.Hollow Man
    10.Life and How to Live It
    11.Houston
    12.Losing My Religion
    13.Harborcoat
    14.The One I Love
    15.The Final Straw
    16.Let Me In
    17.Horse to Water
    18.Bad Day
    19.Walk Unafraid

    20.I'm Gonna DJ
    21.Supernatural Superserious
    22.Orange Crush
    23.Man on the Moon

    I was there too, and it was definitely a great show. Losing My Religion into Harborcoat into The One I Love was just about the most awesome thing ever. They do a great job of covering all the bases at their concerts, especially on this latest tour.

    They sounded terrific and put on a great show...

    Mike talks about the new album to Rolling Stone:

    I love the song title "Everyday is Yours to Win", I never get tired of Michael's pep talk songs.

    With all the rumors of other big headliners, REM hasn't been mentioned lately. I hope they end up there, if they're releasing an album next year, it would make sense.

    Discoverer is just ok to me. Although even the most uninteresting REM song has that one hook somewhere in it where you go 'fuck yeah.'

    I agree. That album cursed them for years and for many it marked their demise. Star 69, What's the Frequency kenneth, strange currencies and bang and blame. I like it all.

    Monster is great. But it was so everywhere that its easy to just think of the couple of lame tracks that were huge singles ("Star 69" and "Strange Currencies")

    It's their big, buzzy, Banana Splits bubbleglam record and its one of my favorites of theirs.

    That's funny, I remember the unavoidable big singles being What's the Frequency, Kenneth and Bang and Blame, and to a lesser extent Strange Currencies.

    Edit: Thinking about it, no way was Star 69 a big single. I think you're thinking of Kenneth.

    Star 69 was a single but nowhere as near the hit Kennth was and Kenneth still stands as a great rock song.

    Also, for as much glam that was on that album they really let loose with the distortion.

    "Star 69" was a single tho a minor one with a low key video.
    And it and "Strange Currencies" (bad Righteous Brothers soundalike) were inescapable on MTV and altradio in spring 1995.

    Strange Currencies is a very touching and awesome song. Although I've only heard it on the radio a handful of times, so the overkill factor isn't there for me with that song.

    This thread needs to be updated, because it is starting to look like this new one will be the best R.E.M. album in 13-15 years (hey, I love Up). Check out the five songs that have been released below:









    http://ozonlaag.tumblr.com/post/2878...o-now-2011-hey

    Some of these songs are better than a handful of IRS era tracks (though not many), which is something I haven't been able to say about a new R.E.M. song in a long time.
