R.E.M. Live

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
For their first live album in R.E.M.'s 27-year history, Michael Stipe and company present an electrifying performance from Dublin in February of 2005. The 22 track CD comes with a DVD and features "Until the Day Is Done" and other new songs to be included on the band's 2008 studio album.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Cynics may dismiss R.E.M.'s first-ever live CD as a way to run out their contract, and they may not be wrong. Despite the lack of a full-fledged live album in their catalog -- and some could call R.E.M. Live not quite an album, since it is a two-CD/one-DVD package that documents a concert the group gave at the Point ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Cynics may dismiss R.E.M.'s first-ever live CD as a way to run out their contract, and they may not be wrong. Despite the lack of a full-fledged live album in their catalog -- and some could call R.E.M. Live not quite an album, since it is a two-CD/one-DVD package that documents a concert the group gave at the Point Theatre in Dublin, Ireland, on February 27, 2006, so it's as much a video as an album -- there hasn't exactly been a paucity of official live releases, not with all the home videos, DVDs, and B-sides issued over the years and this isn't even counting the numerous bootlegs. If there wasn't necessarily a need for a live album, it also is true that R.E.M.'s stock never was lower than it was in 2007, as the band was limping along after Around the Sun, which was not so much a flop as it was merely ignored. So, the band could have conceivably been running down their contract or they could have been in a slump, needing the time that a live set bought them, or perhaps they just wanted to offer a reminder of why everybody cared in the first place, something that R.E.M. Live almost provides. At the very least, R.E.M. Live proves that the group packs a stronger punch live than they do in the studio, as the band gives songs from recent albums muscle they sorely missed on record. They also can sound vital on classic material, such as "Cuyahoga," which retains a fragile beauty here, and they give "I Took Your Name" a mean, menacing vibe. Not that everything clicks here -- as they go to the encore, they get a bit too strident and overblown, while Mike Mills' lead vocal on "Don't Go Back To Rockville" turns the song into something a little too slight -- but the band sounds tight and enormous, a perfect example of old pros comfortable in their skin. Now, this won't necessarily be everybody's cup of tea -- in particular, fans of the frenzied early R.E.M. rock & roll will find this too anthemic -- but this big, big sound on R.E.M. Live speaks to the band's core strengths in a way no post-Bill Berry studio album does.

    R.E.M. Legacy Keeps Growing

    This is an exceptionally well-done compilation of some of R.E.M.'s finest songs including ATS recordings. This is definitely a die-hard fans must-get. The concert footage is a little shaky at times bringing back memories of Tourfilm, but other than that, it's a great DVD with many close-ups of Michael's facial expressions. And just to point out to the fans, as B&N reports that it is, the song "Until The Day Is Done" is NOT on this album or on the DVD. The DVD is just the concert that is on the 2 CD's.
