Loved the singles on this one but found the rest of it a bit less memorable. I know it’s a highly regarded album, and it was good to listen to but I couldn’t name another song on it now.

Revisited May 2019

I think I was far too harsh on R.E.M. when I first listened to this. Even if I could only name the singles after listening to it, those songs are SO GOOD. Sidewinder is great, Man on the moon a classic, and for goodness’s sake Everybody Hurts is worth a five all by itself.

Rating: 5 / 5
