I like. Probably the best since Automatic...although Up was quite nice...
it'll probably be rubbish though.
that hyperbole of stipe's is at it again"we've never been closer" blah blah blah we're communicating better than ever blah blah blah, all it does is confirm that the band has been in limbo since Bill Berry left and that was a hell of a long time ago now... Up and Reveal are good records (the latter being one of my faves) and I like the live rehearsals in Dublin but i hope they don't bugger it up in the studio!We'll see, I'll buy regardless...
just for kicks, my top 5 REM albums:
Out Of Time

now where can i hear it?
It's not out til April 1st...don't think anything's leaked yet...
check your e-mail and get back to me regarding the matters within sil vous plait monsieur.
There is no way this can possibly be worse than ARTS... What I've heard of the rehearsels sound really promising. I'm really looking forward to this. A lot.
I'm not holding out too much hope.
However very excited about the rumours that they are playing some UK dates later this year. Is playing G'burg too much to ask I wonder?
to a playback of this in LA, and really rated it. (and he's a fussy bastard)
Not heard anything yet, or anyone's views on it. I can't seem to remember anyone saying much good about Around the sun, so this is a good sign.
in monochrome. Their best LP cover is, was and probably always will be the same as their best LP - New Adventures...
I'm cautiously optimistic that this might be a half-decent record. It'll certainly be better than Around The Sun; if it's as good as Up or Monster I'll be satisfied and anything better would be awesome.
by the Beastie Boys. Which was a depressingly bad album. Hopefully that's not portentious, though. I wish I'd avoided that album like I avoided Around the Sun.
the new album sounds like a shit version of their stuff from the late 80's.
live versions are usually different right?
I do like all their stuff up to and including Reveal, so I'm just hoping Around the Sun was an aberration.
