At first, I felt the back half of the album - I.e. the last three songs - didn't cohere with the rest of it. They felt...

Very interested in hearing your thoughts on this. I've always heard good things, but I've never been pushed to pick it up, despite liking Blood Meridian and his later work.

He may do some background vocals, but he's definitely not featured, at least as far as I can remember from my listen yesterday.

I was very impressed with this on first listen. Last album was good, but it didn't stick with me as much as I was hoping. Already liking this one more.

I loved certain songs on the Divine Fits album, but as a whole it kind of fell flat for me. However, I love Transference through and through.

Whatever though. I'm loving this as well.

Yeah, the acoustic version was the b-side to one of the 7"s in the boxset.

Went yesterday and saw the train trestle from the back cover of Murmur. Then we went and found, after quite a bit of searching and walking along a sketchy length of train tracks, the kudzu patch....

I probably listen to Reckoning the most, but Murmur might be my favorite. If that makes any sense. Automatic is incredible too though. Hard to make that call.

I'll be spending the weekend in Athens - my first trip down there that's not college-related - so I've been listening to R.E.M., of course, after taking a long break from their music.

Ah, I didn't see that crucial bit of info. I'll definitely be on the lookout for a second pressing then.

If you listen to the interview, it's pretty clear that the emphasis is that it's more of an alternate or companion album than just a simple acoustic one. I can't think of any other albums like this...

I mean, I'd love to get it sooner, but the way this band works, I'm not expecting a new album until late next year or so. Still it's exciting news!
