    Any other longtime R.E.M. fans picking this up tomorrow? I've heard Leaving New York, which I really enjoyed. I haven't heard any of the other songs on the CD however. Still, it's R.E.M. which always means I'm buying it no matter what. [​IMG]

    I'll definitely be getting it. I still have a lot of love for the post-Berry R.E.M. and I think "Up" and "Reveal" are vastly underrated. I've only heard "Leaving New York" but I thought it was excellent.

    Thank you for the link Dave.

    I'll pass.

    Even Leaving New York, which others seem to like, is fairly bland. Really really disappointing.


    Edit: meant to write bland, instead of bleh - where on Earth did I pull that one out of.

    not bad. i think i'm gettin' old cuz i like the more melodic relaxed stuff now. so this fits my bill pretty well. i figure bb will have it for 10 bucks, so it'll definitely be worth that.
