They were on PBS here last Saturday night. I didn't watch it. If you missed it, don't worry, they will play it many more times. I used to love REM, but not so much anymore.

Brock, thanks for the link!

I know these guys hail from Georgia and all, but is there a more arrogant guy in R & Roll today than Michael Stipe?

I caught it on GPB. Not bad....not great. I still like REM though. I wish Bill Berry would come back.

Bono perhaps. But then again, since I don't plan to spend any time with him, it matters not. I like U2's music and that is enough.

I've tried to get into this band for 20-plus years, and I saw the show this week, and they do absolutely nothing for me. Don't get it.

they lost me after the Green album- I always loved the earlier stuff before MTV found them. Lifes Rich Pageant was (is) an amazing album. Reckoning and Document were not too far behind. I saw them at the Univ. Of S. Florida back in the day whenh I was living in sin in Clearwater. Good memories.
I think I'll break out an old cassette tonight.

"Chronic Town", "Murmur", "Fables of the Reconstruction" - yeah, I liked them for a while. They kinda lost me when they started doing stuff like, "Stand", and "Whiney, Sappy People" - all that bubblegum pop. I was guilty in getting into some of that "college radio" stuff during the years when the Allman Brother's Band got kinda weird. Once I stumbled across my old copy of "Eat a Peach" - all that college stuff went into a box marked, "GARAGE SALE".

I agree. I think they're average musicians who's music I find to be quite, ah, boring. I find nothing exciting about them.

Yes! This thread made me pull "Lifes Rich Pageant" out for a listen. It's the only REM cd I own. I seen them on that tour also. It has been going all downhill from there. An occasional good tune or decent album but nothing compares to "Lifes Rich Pageant"!

I own Document on vinyl, but don't have any other REM discs in my collection. I wish I had a dime for every time I have played The One I Love in a bar. I've played Driver 8 a few times in rehearsals.

I definitely love most of their early stuff from the first EP through whatever album was before Green. (I can't think what that was now). I liked Green when it came out. I really like a few things on it, but I don't think it's that great. I actually still like a lot of Out of Time (which I believe is the name of the album) after Green. From there, I get so bored with the music. There was one album, called UP, that I thought had a lot of cool stuff, because it was different for them. And i'm sure I would find songs on all those later albums I would enjoy.
