Going to Twickenham with Audiodave, || Release Me || and Chime on 30th August.
Is playing my whole top 5 too much to ask?
Crossing my fingers so they at least play WTFK? and So Fast, So Numb... surely that isn't too much... is it?!
I'd really like to see Lotus and Mr Richards from my top 5 but I don't think there's much chance of that tbh :(
Wake Up Bomb would be awesome to hear and Sing for the Submarine would be great... if only keep Ross happy
From the new album (well, the one's that are most likely) i'd love to see Man Sized Wreath and Living Well is the Best Revenge. The new album is incredible and I think it'll be well recieved by the crowds. I was only joking about SS being a crowd pleaser
reveal,up,and 'round da sun suck sooooooo bad! the new one though is pretty damn good! a sort of return to form.
I'm not crazy about Up, but I enjoy Around the Sun and Reveal is one of my favorite R.E.M. albums ever.
The Lifting, Leaving New York, Boy in the Well, All the Way to Reno, I'll Take the Rain, I Wanted to Be Wrong, Final Straw, Disappear, Electron Blue
WOO! Document and Life's Rich Pageant have just arrived on my desk at work :cool:
exhuming mcarthy, superman, begin the begin, end of the world, the one i love, fall on me... whats not to like about these albums.. classics.
This is very true! I can't stop listening to REM.
In the past few days i've been listening to Accelerate, Reveal (which I seem to have found a new appreciation for), Document, Life's Rich Pageant, Fables Of The Reconstruction, Automatic For The People, Murmur, Reckoning...
I think i'm addicted.
I love ignoreland on automatic and all the early stuff is gold... I prefer early R.E.M. but a few songs on Reveal are great including I've Been High. I have to say that I'm addicted also especially since they announced a tour and released an new album.

Am I the only one who thinks it's their finest record to date?

seeing the boys this evening......anyone know what time rem comes on stage? not really interested in the openers
Last one in the pool is a rotten egg!
ha! i just saw your post over at murmurs.com
do you know if the shuttles from the external parking lots run constantly? on the bowl website it says "The last bus departs each lot at concert time."
do you think that means the headliner or when the show starts?
REM, in my opinion, has more "perfect" albums than any other band. Perfect as in, I love every song and I never want to skip even one.
The ones that I never skip any songs...
New Adventures in Hi Fi (my favorite, hands down)
Automatic for the People
Out of Time
Reconstruction of the Fables

You didn't have to make your point three time.
I think that New Adventures is one of their finest records to date, and gets a lot of love around these parts, and for that reason i'm trying to emphasise the other REM albums I love. I've probably listened to New Adventures as much if not more than any other REM album. It truly is a masterpiece, and I think you'll find there are a LOT of fans of that record here. It's just so good...we don't NEED to talk about it.
