4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bitter May 17 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Bittersweet Me" is a strong rocker from the New Adventures in Hi-Fi album. It has a nice guitar riff and catchy chorus. The three bonus tracks are strong especially an inspired cover of Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman".

4.0 out of 5 stars One of R.E.M.'s many strong Maxi-Singles Oct. 28 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a fine effort from R.E.M. They have long produced some of the best Singles of any real rock band, but U.S. buyers have been left out in the cold by Warner Bros. after the Up album. A shame, as this single certainly shows.
Bittersweet Me is a very underrated R.E.M. song. It really can appeal to both die-hard fans and casual fans, and I'm really surprised it didn't see more radio success. It is well-written and executed very well. One of the best tracks from "New Adventures..."
Undertow is a song which lends itself a live version, but it could have been executed a little better. Its a little listless, which I think is largely a result from undermixed guitar and drums and over-mixed vocals. The song is a great hard-rock effort, and I've heard it done better live. Still, it comes on very strong for the second half of the recording, which makes up a lot for the troubled start.
Wichita Lineman is an exquisite cover. Michael Stipe performs it with amazing depth of emotion, you would be surprised that he didn't write it if you weren't already acquainted with the popular Glen Campbell version. Nice guitar and organ, too, with typically strong drums from Bill Berry. The live recording detracts a bit from what this track could have been, but its a minor issue.
One of my all-time favorite R.E.M. tracks is New Test Leper, and the live acoustic treatment here brings a lot to the track, and giving it a noticably different feel from the album version. The poetics are some of R.E.M.'s best. Not subtle, but not blunt either, finding a perfect balance with a spiritual underpinning the average R.E.M. might not expect.
