    After several days of enjoying "Automatic" in glorious hi-rez surround, I'm glad to learn that R.E.M.'s second-best album[​IMG] will be coming early next year. Now if only I could find that elusive vinyl repressing...

    Tim,

    Where did you see this information posted? I will be picking up this disc whenever it is released. I am hoping we get the entire Warner R.E.M. catalog on DVD-A when it is all said and done. Warner is doing a good job with keeping quality rock titles coming out on DVD-A.

    I actually saw it on Rolling Stone's site, but thanks for the independent confirmation...

    Would this be from Capitol-EMI (I can't remember who owns the IRS catalog now). If so, I typically like the way they approach DVD-audio better than WB. Of course, that's becasue I don't have a DVD-Audio player of my own, and they typically make a 24 bit 96KHz 2.0 stereo track available on the DVD-video program. [​IMG]

    It would definitely be from EMI, since that's where the rights for this album reside. (Everything up to and including Document was issued on IRS, which was absorbed into EMI at some point. After that it's all Warner.)

    I'm gonna get a DVD-A player someday (software has finally reached critical mass for me -- Neil Young, Yes, R.E.M., with Pet Sounds and Dark Side coming next year), but might well pick this one up right away if the hi-res stereo track is DVD-V compatible. One of my favorite albums.

    Louis,

    A few of those titles you listed are controlled by Warner, which means there is an excellent chance we will get them on DVD-A. My advice would be if you are a R.E.M fan to go out and buy the two discs that are out now (Reveal and Automatic for the People). Good sales are a sure way to show Warner that people are interested in DVD-A and want more R.E.M in Hi-res.

    Michael, I was thinking the same thing. I would love to see Out of Time come out on DVD-Audio. I think "Losing My Religion" would be great in high-resolution stereo. I'll take Green on DVD-Audio too. [​IMG]

    "Out of Time" is the one DVD-A I would get from R.E.M.

    KeithH, we have agreed time and again that a DVD A collection just isn't complete without Out Of Time [​IMG]

    Dumb question time. I know nothing about DVD A. Can you play them on regular DVD players?

    If I were king of the R.E.M. DVD-Audio universe, I would want the next four, in order, to be:

    Reckoning
    Lifes Rich Pageant
    Murmur
    New Adventures in Hi-Fi

    I'll take SACD on the IRS stuff just as readily if Capitol-EMI really does support both formats.

    Regards,

    Has anyone compared the AFTP DVD-A to the LP. I have the LP and find that it beats the CD on everything except slam and a little swagger. The thing is AFTP is a quiet album (though Stipe says it's punk), so slam and swagger shouldn't be an issue. Monster and Reveal are both poorly mastered on CD and I don't have those on LP to compare. Murmur is also excellent on vinyl. My Document LP I think has seen better days because it's about as good as the CD.

    Hey Ken,
    Put Murmur in the top spot and you got my vote for king.
    What you don't vote for kings? I think i heard that in a monty python movie somewhere. [​IMG]
    Seriously though REM on dvd-a does it get any better?

    According to my source, REM's upcoming "Document" is now pushed back to February 11 along with The Band's "Music from Big Pink". Sorry folks, to form dark clouds along the horizon. I seem to be doing a lot of that lately.
