one of the great late80's/early 90's bands. the string of albums from green-new adventures in hi fi is mindblowing

No disagreement about those albums you mentioned, but I prefer the early 80's stuff on IRS better. I also think that once Bill Berry "retired" that they haven't been the same.

no argument there either about bill berry although i did hear the new REM album is the best album they've done since berry was in the band. only song i really liked since berry left was "day sleeper"

I'm a big fan of the IRS years.

Liked the Warner Brothers stuff up to and including New Adventures in Hi Fi

Up, Reveal and Around the Sun totally lost me .

Accelerate was a nice return to form.

Loved them from "Murmur" to "Automatic for the People"

They will never again match those early days.

Same here though Adventures In The New High-Fi is just a fantastic album as well.

Murmur and Fables Of Reconstruction are always contending for my favorite album but I think Murmur always comes out on top by just a hair.

I agree- I saw them @ the Univ. of So. Florida back in...1988?? just after the release of "Green" which IMO was the beginning of the end for my tastes. I really dug them for a long time back then. and still respect that era of music from them.

I saw REM (w/Radiohead as the opener) back in 1995 on their Monster tour. Still one of the best shows I've ever seen

REM fan here. I've been lucky enough to see them a few times through the years: twice at The Fox, once at The Omni, and once at Chastain Park. I'm due again. IRS albums and the Warner stuff through Monster are classic REM to me. Bill Berry leaving definitely affected them more than I would have expected, but their last album was the best since he left.

They have a great concert of REM in Europe at a small place from their last tour showing on Palladia channel right now on cable. It is excellent and reminded me why I need to see them again.

Ditto, but I think most of The Warners material pales to the IRS.

Saw them in Belfast on the Around The Sun - a little disappointing, though chunks of that was the Belfast crowd, who just wanted to hear Man On The Moon, Everybody Hurts and Shiny Happy People.

Well, they didnt play Shiny Happy People, and we were able to turn a few people onto Country Feedback, which kicked all sorts of ass.

You know that the best of the Dublin rehersals is being released in...October, I think.

I like them, like the earlier stuff better, Saw them from the 5th row once - might have been the Monster tour - it was excellent. Stipe was fun to watch from up close.
