3.0 out of 5 stars Carson City is Closer! July 24 2014
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on Amazon.com

R.E.M. likes the idea of taking the different path when it comes to releasing singles. "All The Way To Reno" is catchy pop music that is a bit more pretty than that dusty desert town in Nevada will ever be. But, this music is like a sagebrush salad as there is no way you want a steady diet of this sorta thing and at 4:45 minutes in length it goes on longer than you may want it to.

"Yellow River" sounds like an outtake from The Cowsills and Mike Mills sings this throwaway track with less than life and it proves that R.E.M. will still release ANY track worked up in the studio. I don't care for this one (as you may have guessed!)

"165 Hillcrest" is a 1960's surf instrumental that could have been featured in the movie "Endless Summer" back in 1965. This is basic: Buck/Mills unwinding in a studio setting after many long hours of being a lot more serious than this.

"Imitation Of Life" gets a live workout that is less-polished than the studio release but it's the best song found here and it shows R.E.M. was always more alive on any stage than making records in the recording dungeons. There is also a live video of this cut you can watch on your computer so this is indeed a bonus.

This short CD is for R.E.M. collectors and the fans of the "Reveal" period of the band are not gonna find any hidden treasures on this disc. Unless you have to own everything by the band it's not essential to seek this one out and if you wait a bit you will be rewarded as this will be part of a future collection of R.E.M. music due to be put forth in the year 2024 anyway. There is still lots of stuff up there in the attic.
Three Stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not essential for casual fans, but has unusual Mills vocals Dec 14 2002
By Christopher Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
R.E.M.'s "All the Way to Reno" single was released in August 2001 to promote their album REVEAL. While it is a European import, R.E.M. collectors and dedicated fans should track it down as it is one of R.E.M's most interesting singles.
"All the Way to Reno" one of the most subtle and clever songs from REVEAL. The tale of a woman going to Reno for either an easy marriage or, more likely, an easy divorce, the song assures her that she's "gonna be a star." The song is catchy and radio-friendly and was a wise choice for a single. "Yellow River" is a rendition of a Jeff Christie track that, apparently, has Mike Mills doing the vocals. Mills' appearances on lead vocals are few and far between and "Yellow River" song makes the single quite unusual. "165 Hillchrest" is a Mills and Buck instrumental that sounds like a bit of winding-down in the studio. The closing track of the single is "Imitation of Live (Live from Trafalgar Square)". This version, from a concert against racism held in the heart of London, is incredibly disappointing. The song has been recorded and edited to sound like stadium-rock, and ruins the balance that the album version of the track had. For those who prefer R.E.M.'s quieter, more pensive side, this song is sheer torture.
Placing the single in a computer CD-ROM drive allows one to watch the concert footage of "Imitation of Life." (It is in late-Sorenson Quicktime format and works on Windows and MacOS, but not on Linux). Seeing the crowd of mostly young teenagers dancing to an overblown song is depressing, but Stipe's words against racism at the end of the performance are inspiring.
While R.E.M.'s singles are not essential for the casual fan, the "All the Way to Reno" deserves attention from R.E.M. collectors and dedicated fans for its instrumental and "Yellow River" with vocals from Mike Mills.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cd-single Aug. 20 2005
By M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was when R.E.M still gave their fans these extra bonus tracks that are not found anywhere else for us to enjoy. Now they give us one song on a current Cd , then put out the same Cd single again with a different bonus song. So now you must buy 2 CD's in order to have the 2 rare tracks. What a rip-off! This Cd was before R.E.M ( or their people) turned greedy. It contains 3 rare tracks plus a video. Very enjoyable.Recommended!
