michael stipe is the frontman's frontman. he is so captivating it is unreal. automatic for the people is my favorite record of the 90's.

Important, yes. But musically do they do anything earth-shaking? No. Especially in the songs on this release.

ok, you got a point. but maybe they don't do something really special (like playing a dozen notes each second), but they are just amazing muscians. the guitar sound, the songs,... it all sounds simple, but believe me: it's very difficult. sorry, i just think it's an amazing band, but i understand your opinion.

I haven't heard this, and don't really plan to, but Reckoning, Document, Murmur, Out of Time, and Automatic for the People are all fantastic. So many people I know hate on R.E.M. which is a shame 'cause they make some fine tunes.

are you the same deadfuck that posted your script online, because if you are my girlfriend and my friends thank you a thousand times over for making the worst movie out of the worst script ever. Seriously, it turned out so hilarious, we watch it all the time.

R.E.M. basically created the genre of alternative with genre bending into country, rock and punk. Micheal Stripe lyrically remains at the top of the list for music ever.

Did REM record this from a live show in Ireland?
