    This is their best record since New Adventures and maybe since Automatic.

    Ok probably since Automatic.

    R.E.M. is one of my favorite bands ever. Really looking forward to hearing the new album (not now, can't listen at work).

    I've seen them seven times, starting with the Monster tour. They're a consistently good live band.

    Have you all seen the Perfect Square DVD? It's excellent.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I saw them on their Fables tour. No "Radio Free Europe" in this setlist though. But look at the two cool covers.

    2 August 1985 - Cullen Auditorium, Houston, TX
    support: True West

    set: Feeling Gravitys Pull / Second Guessing / Letter Never Sent / Green Grow The Rushes / Hyena / Maps And Legends / Talk About The Passion / So. Central Rain / Have You Ever Seen The Rain? / Fall On Me / Driver 8 / Seven Chinese Brothers / Can't Get There From Here / Auctioneer (Another Engine) / Old Man Kensey / Pretty Persuasion / 1,000,000 / Life And How To Live It

    encore 1: Harborcoat / (Don't Go Back To) Rockville / Little America
    encore 2: Theme From Two Steps Onward / Gardening At Night / 9-9 / Windout / Boy (Go) / Femme Fatale

    notes: Stipe announced this is second time they have played Fall On Me (untitled at the time)

    My first time seeing them was in 1989 on the Green tour and it literally changed my life.
    I would have loved to see them in 85.

    They were great in 2008. BMack and I saw an awesome show at the Greek in Berkeley. They seemed revitalized. That stretch from Up to Around the Sun was not their best.

    Yeah, I wish we could have gone both nights, but alas. We saw the first night and the set list was fantastic, plus the fact that Modest Mouse and the National opened.

    Tom, those covers are pretty cool, but I'd have killed to have caught the shows where they covered See No Evil by Television and Ghost Rider by Suicide.

    I was expecting tired and dull at Sasquatch 2008 but instead saw this revitalized band you all speak of.

    I need to revisit New Adventures....I remember writing that off as their downfall. Probably a mistake at the time.

    I've seen
    Monster
    Reveal
    and
    Accelerate tours.

    Surpisingly Accelerate was my favorite.

    The Monster shows in summer 95 were incredible too.
    Between them becoming huge in 89 and a household name by 94, REM hadnt done any touring. Plus everything "Alt" had blown up huge during that time as well.
    So by the time they planned a mammoth arena/amphitheater outing in 95, everyone was primed for a "Victory Lap" kind of tour.
    Plus, no matter what you think of Monster as an album, those songs were pretty much designed to sound amazing coming out of a shed in the summertime.
    One of my favorite live memories is them playing "Tongue" on that tour. The disco ball. The echo'd guitar riff. Perfect.

    R.E.M.

    1. What's The Frequency, Kenneth?
    2. Crush With Eyeliner
    3. Disturbance At The Heron House
    4. Try Not To Breathe
    5. You
    6. Undertow
    7. Strange Currencies
    8. Me In Honey
    9. I Don't Sleep, I Dream
    10. Revolution
    11. Tongue
    12. Man On The Moon
    13. Country Feedback
    14. Bang And Blame
    15. Losing My Religion
    16. Star Me Kitten
    17. I Took Your Name
    18. Finest Worksong
    19. Get Up
    20. Star 69

    ENCORE

    1. Let Me In
    2. Everybody Hurts
    3. Departure
    4. Fall On Me
    5. It's The End Of The World As We Know It

    AND the opener was

    Sonic Youth


    1. Cotton Crown
    2. Bull in the Heather
    3. Starfield Road
    4. Washing Machine
    5. No Queen Blues
    6. Skip Tracer
    7. The Diamond Sea

    Oh yeah. Plus, Stipe singing Country Feedback with his back to this audience (did he do this for all the shows on that tour?), the "funk" version of Drive, and the new songs that they played - Revolution, Departure, etc.

    I had really gotten into Monster and the rest of the R.E.M. catalog, I was so excited for the show in Kansas City. I remember being scared when I heard that Bill Berry suffered that aneurysm and that they might cancel the tour. Also, when that false info about him dying came out I actually called a radio station to find out if it was true (the dj said it was not).

    I think that set list is from the second night. There were two shows at Sandstone, and I only went the first night. I remember they did Pop Song 89 and So. Central Rain in the encore at the show I went to. Oh well, close enough!

    That would be terrific to hear if you can find it, Bryan.

    I'll echo all the previously-expressed love for Collapse Into Now. I'll hold off naming it the best thing since Automatic for the People until I've given it a couple more listens, but it's undoubtedly a solid extension of what they started on Accelerate.

    Yeah, I don't want to go there quite yet. I would say without reservation that it's their best since Up (an album that most people hate but I'll always love), and maybe their best since Hi-Fi. The point is, this is the first time in a long time that R.E.M. have made a really good R.E.M., and not an album in which Michael, Mike and Peter try to awkwardly change what an R.E.M. album can or should be. It's back to basics in the best way.
