They were so frantic, so earnest, so exuberant in those early days! It was such a kick seeing them live, then, too; Stipe was SO EDGY!

When I used to drive across country to home from grad school, I always tried to play this CD in Ohio to coincide with the crossing of the Cuyohoga River.  Tough to do on a 16 hour trip before Google Maps.

Does a record need to be truly great from start to finish to qualify as a great record? That seems like a pretty high bar. Most of my absolute favorite records from any band have at least 1-2 kind of weak experiments that I sometimes skip. The majority of REM for me fits into that category of maybe 1-2 skips (with the number admittedly increasing the closer they got to Accelerate). Doesn't mean I don't absolutely love them!

My favourite album of theirs but this is not a statement I can back up.  Document, Green, Out of Time and New Adventures all make that list for me.  Automatic would but it has Everybody Hurts and that slow instrumental.

College Radio REM, So good.  Awesome listening as a 16 year old.  Had a university across the street from our home and you could hear REM and my Intro to Guadalcanal Diary bellowing from dorm windows.  It was a good time.

Bill what about Superman from this record.  That song truly gets you going.

I am so glad that their music was around when I was growing up.

Ok I feel underprivileged, 2 years is all I got to get dem 'nitials. Had I known then how to stretch it to 8 that could have been a blast.

WHIP IT! This song had emotional resonance for me back in college, and it still gets it done for me.

YEAH!  This was INCREDIBLE then, and can still bring the inspiration now!  We could use more of that precious stuff These Days...
