What's your favorite R.E.M. song

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson

i'm not a huge fan of 90s rock production either tbh. i disagreed with scott about wishing new adventures sounded more like the bends with the guitars more up front. i feel like it doesn't sound as dated as other albums from that era because it's basically a live album. (and so fast, so numb is great as is.)

I don't like 90s production either (it's one of the reasons I don't like Automatic that much). But the songs on Up are just boring imo.

tone sincere i love up and think it's really good but given what i know about gramma's musical taste it's hard for me to imagine him liking it

obviously give it a few more spins grams but you're allowed to not like shit (even if we all reserve the right to make fun of you, it's just cause yr so dang affable)

i mean, it's 1998, you just lost your irreplaceable drummer after almost 2 decades kicking worldwide ass together, the fuck you gonna do? you're gonna get some goofy drum machines is what you're gonna do, just like anyone else would. and be sad and write songs accordingly. it works.

yeah i could definitely understand not liking up. i just meant since he's going through that back section of the catalogue, it's the only one that deserves any sort of closer attention/repeated listens. if grams doesn't like up, he may as well stop right damn there imo.

also the other thing about up is that i wouldn't put it on more than like once in any given week

it's really long and a legit downer, does not lend itself at all to rapid replays in my opinion

there's some stinkers on it for sure but i'm curious what leads you to this

i soulseeked around the sun a couple months after it came out and got actually mad at the mp3 files. that i didn't pay for. i was angry with them and the folder they came in.
