I would find it hard to argue that Document is not REM's finest album from start to finish. Not sure why birds play such a part in the album from the herons ("Disturbance at The Heron House") to the "King of Birds."

Of course, "It's The End of The World" gets all the attention now but listen to this album in its entirety and you can just tell this band hit a home run.

This is one of the best CD's from REM. I enjoy every song even though I don't what the words mean. My favorite is the The one I love, Finest Worksong just to name a few.

Following on from the difficult though rewarding "Fables Of The Reconstruction" and "Life's Rich Pageant", R.E.M.'s final independent release, "Document", stands as the best thing they ever did.
Though R.E.M. have been criticised by some as the offspring of early 1980s pop music, this criticism could never be levelled at what they do on "Document". More than anything else, the music on "Document" is proof of the eccentricity R.E.M. were developing during their years at now-defunct independent label IRS.
Often seen as R.E.M.'s effort at "power pop", "Document" really was and is much, much more than that. The amazingly thing about this album is that the band manages to be incredibly funny on the standout "Exhuming McCarthy" and at the same time develop their musicianship into waters they were never to chart after moving to Warners. The dark "Fireplace" and "Lighning Hopkins" were equally brilliant: ominous, yet amazingly powerful for that.
The more familiar, famously sly "The One I Love" might not quite compare with these three tracks, but still it marks out the direction of their best-selling "Automatic For The People" album five years before the fact. "Finest Worksong", especially in its remixed version found as a bonus track, was a superb tribute to the past folk heroes in America. One can also see just how ironic Stipe wanted to be - and WAS - on "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" - in which he describes so well the realities facing us today.
A record that, though acclaimed in its time, is now often forgotten. Nonetheless, if you can only buy one R.E.M. record, it should be this one.

By Reviewer on April 25 2004
Format: Audio CD
No, I am not going to bash R.E.M. Far from it! It's just that while I definitely would rank Automatic for the People as my favorite R.E.M. album, I constantly vacillate when it comes to number two. In one review I said it was Out of Time; here I'm going to say it's Document, with Out of Time slipping to #3. R.E.M. has put out several strong albums and it's really hard to be able to do a 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. ranking of the top several. That's the problem with R.E.M.!
When you listen to Document, each song elicits a different reaction: I'm calmed by Finest Worksong, I can't help but ruminate when I hear Welcome to the Occupation, I revel in It's the End of the World As We Know It (and I feel Fine), and I savor Oddfellows Local 151 as if it's fine wine. This is a powerful album -- though not as emotionally as Automatic for the People is. No, this one is powerful on more of an intellectual level, though it still has a definite emotional payoff.

This was my first "R.E.M." album, which makes sense since it was the first of theirs to reach the ears of the masses. "Out Of Time" was actually when they really became huge, but this one got the name out. The big songs here are "The One I Love" and "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)", but "Finest Worksong" was a minor hit too. However I enjoy "Exhuming McCarthy", "Fireplace", and others just as much. Their next album "Green" is also very good, and if you want a sampling of their early years, including this album, check out "Eponymous".
