R.E.M. began to move toward mainstream record production on Lifes Rich Pageant, but they didn't have a commercial breakthrough until the following year's Document. Ironically, Document is a stranger, more varied album than its predecessor, but co-producer Scott Litt -- who would go on to produce every R.E.M. album in the following decade -- is a better conduit for the band than Don Gehman, giving the group a clean sound without sacrificing their enigmatic tendencies. "Finest Worksong," the stream-of-conscious rant "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)," and the surprise Top Ten single "The One I Love" all crackle with muscular rhythms and guitar riffs, but the real surprise is how political the mid-tempo jangle pop of "Welcome to the Occupation," "Disturbance at the Heron House," and "King of Birds" is. Where Lifes Rich Pageant sounded a bit like a party record, Document is a fiery statement, and its memorable melodies and riffs are made all the more indelible by its righteous anger. In other words, it's not only a commercial breakthrough, but a creative breakthrough as well, offering evidence of R.E.M.'s growing depth and maturity, and helping usher in the P.C. era in the process. ---Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic Review

Murmur is the more inventive of R.E.M.'s early albums, but their second disc, the powerful Reckoning, established the band as bona fide leaders of the new American indie-rock underground. Drummer Bill Berry shines here, propelling the spiky interplay of guitars and bass on "Harborcoat" and clarifying the chiming, radio-friendly folk rock of "So. Central Rain (I'm Sorry)." Michael Stipe's voice peels away new layers of emotion, especially in the brooding "Camera," which remains one of R.E.M.'s most exquisite songs. The extra disc is a 1984 show in Chicago, which includes the obligatory Velvet Underground cover ("Femme Fatale") as well as a pair of songs, "Driver 8" and "Hyena," that wouldn't show up on disc for years. ---Mark Kemp, rollingstone.com

R.E.M. was an alternative rock band formed in Athens, Georgia, United States in 1980. The band originally consisted of Michael Stipe (vocals), Peter Buck (guitar, mandolin), Mike Mills (bass, keyboards, vocals) and Bill Berry (drums, vocals). Berry retired from the band in October 1997 after having suffered a brain aneurysm in 1995.

R.E.M. released its first single, " Radio Free Europe ", in 1981 on the independent record label Hib-Tone . The single was followed by the Chronic Town EP in 1982, the band's first release on I.R.S. Records. In 1983, the group released its critically acclaimed debut album, Murmur , and built its reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases, constant touring, and the support of college radio. Following years of underground success, R.E.M. achieved a mainstream hit in 1987 with the single "The One I Love ". The group signed to Warner Bros. in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide.

By the early 1990s, when alternative rock began to experience broad mainstream success, R.E.M. was viewed as a pioneer of the genre and released its two most commercially successful albums, Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992), which veered from the band's established sound. R.E.M.'s 1994 release, Monster , was a return to a more rock-oriented sound. The band began its first tour in six years to support the album; the tour was marred by medical emergencies suffered by three band members. In 1996, R.E.M. re-signed with Warner Bros. for a reported US$80 million, at the time the most expensive recording contract in history. The following year, Bill Berry left the band, while Buck, Mills, and Stipe continued the group as a three-piece. Through some changes in musical style, the band continued its career into the next decade with mixed critical and commercial success. In 2007, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On 21 September 2011, after over 30 years together, R.E.M. announced that they had split up. ---player.listenlive.co

Righting themselves via their long-awaited return to rock Accelerate, R.E.M. regrouped and rediscovered their core strengths as a band, strengths they build upon on its 2011 sequel, Collapse into Now. Cautiously moving forward from Accelerate’s Life's Rich Pageant blueprint, R.E.M. steer themselves toward the pastoral, acoustic moments of Out of Time and Automatic for the People without quite leaving behind the tight, punchy rockers that fueled Accelerate’s race to the end zone. This broadening of the palette is as deliberate as Accelerate’s reduction of R.E.M. to ringing Rickenbackers, and while it occasionally feels as if the bandmembers sifted through their past to find appropriate blueprints for new songs, there is merit to their madness. R.E.M. embrace their past to the extent that they disdain the modern, reveling in their comfortable middle age even if they sometimes slip into geezerhood, with Michael Stipe spending more than one song wondering about kids these days. He’s not griping; he’s merely accepting his age, which is kind of what R.E.M. do as a band here, too. Over a tight 41 minutes, they touch upon all the hallmarks from when Bill Berry still anchored the band, perhaps easing up on the jangle but devoting plenty of space to rough-hewn acoustics and mandolin, rushing rock & roll, and wide-open, eerie mood pieces that sound like rewrites of “E-Bow the Letter.” Any slight element of recycling is offset by craft so skilled it almost seems casual. This may impart a lack of urgency to Collapse into Now but it also means that it delivers R.E.M. sounding like R.E.M., something that has been in short supply since the departure of Berry. ---Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic Review

 

Grupa R.E.M. wydała znowu znakomity album. Kiedy zaczynali blisko 30 lat temu byli jedynie ulubieńcami młodzieży uniwersyteckiej w USA. Dziś ich muzyka mimo, że ma zasięg globalny , wcale nie straciła alternatywnego charakteru. Jaka jest wiec nowa płyta zespołu z miasta Athens w stanie Georgia ?Pełna energii , zapału i młodzieńczego entuzjazmu.Materiał muzyczny nagrywany został początkowo w Stanach pod kierunkiem tego samego producenta Jacknifa ,odpowiedzialnego za ich poprzedni album „Accelerate” i którego zarekomendował zespołowi Bono z U2 . Za pewnie też za jego namową zespół znalazł się w berlińskim studiu nagraniowym -Hansa Studio.To tu nagrywał pod koniec lat 70 -tych swoje nowofalowe płyty David Bowie ,potem Depeche Mode i również tu powstała legendarna płyta „Achtung Baby”U2.Efekty sesji przyniosły niesamowity rezultat. Do nagrania nowej płyty zaproszono wielu znakomitych muzyków-Eddiego Veddera z PearlJam,kontrowersyjną, kanadyjską wokalistkę Merill Beth Nisker znaną jako „Peaches” oraz dawno nie słyszaną Patti Smith.

Są na tej płycie znakomite , energetyczne numery - „All the best” czy też zabawny „Alligator-Aviator-Autopilot-Antimator”. Płytę promuje charakterystyczny dla stylu zespołu utwór”Uberlin” o mądrym ,filozoficznym tekście. Mamy tu też piękne ballady – prosto zagrana , trochę w stylu „Loosing my religion”-„Oh my heart” pełny odniesień do Nowego Orleanu ,którego mieszkańcy srogo zostali dotknięci przez kataklizm przed paru laty oraz nostalgiczny „Me, Marlon Brando,Marlon Brando and I”.Koniecznie trzeba zobaczyć video do utworu”Mine smell like honey”gdzie wyczyny ekwilibrystyczne Michaela Stipe’a budzą podziw i gwarantowaną zabawę.Całosc tej 40 minutowego wydawnictwa zamyka niesamowity „Blue” z melorecytacją Stipe’a wspomaganego przez Patti Smith,który jednocześnie przechodzi w początek utworu”Discoverer”,otwierajacy płyte „Collapse Into Now”.Tak wiec przy prawidłowym ustawieniu odtwarzacza CD ta muzyka może trwać non stop .Na koniec coś pozytywnego na wiosnę. Tu chciałbym zacytować naszych muzyków, którzy w ”Everyday is yours to win”śpiewają „…Każdy dzień jest za każdym razem nowy Każdy dzień jest Twój , po to aby wygrać I w taki sposób rodzą się bohaterowie…” Bierzmy się wiec do pracy !! Hey Yeah ---Darco.www.marcinkowice.pl
