Album is formulaic indeed, but it's decent enough.

A very good return to form for R.E.M, currently my album of the year

While "Monster" is far from being one of their best albums, I've always liked Monster, the more rocking R.E.M. songs.

Not knowing they had a new CD coming out, I was confused to hear some of these new songs, I asked a friend, hey aren't these songs of REM, can't remember that song was on monster.



Anyway the new album is better than Monster :-)

Good review and what not, but this album bores me pretty much, and the lyrics are so cheesy and kind of bad. But it's the best R.E.M. in a while, so I am happy.

Good review, only after reading I would expect you'd give it a lower rating, let's say a 3.

I think my favourite was either Living Well or the title track.

Cool I love Automatic for the People, and not really a fan of Out of Time or Monster. This seems like its better so I'll be checking it out.

Nothing groundbreaking but it's certainly an enjoyable listen despite it's short run-time.



Michaels raspy vocals can be really annoying though. "Living well is the best revenge" being the main offender.

Just listened to this 4 or 5 times in a row and it's great, definitely was a great return to form. Living Well Is The Best Revenge is such a great opener.
