The only disappointment in their catologue
I am a HUGE R.E.M. fan but I have to say this album is just a let down. The songs here are mostly soundchecks of songs left off of Monster and you can hear why. The beautiful melody you find on all of their other albums (even the hard rocking Monster)just isnt there. These songs just DONT SOUND GOOD. The one keeper is "New Test Leper" which is incredible, but every band is going to miss at some point and R.E.M. did here. All that said, even at their worst I'd take R.E.M. and this album over most of the cr@p now populating the airwavesWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
