5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Monster, May 29 2014

This review is from: Collapse Into Now (Audio CD)
This CD is just as great as anything they did in the early 90's.
I think I just figured out they they called it Collapse Into Now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, But Not Classic, April 14 2011

This review is from: Collapse Into Now (Audio CD)
I'm a long-time R.E.M. fan, having bought "Murmur" back in 1983 - one of their classic early records. I've since acquired all of their albums, with the exception of 2004's "Around the Sun". Their latest release is a solid, if unoriginal effort that sounds somewhat like 90's-era R.E.M. ("Out of Time"/"Automatic For the People") but without the sense that they are breaking new ground. Still, there are three standout tracks: "All the Best" - a near-perfect up-tempo rocker, the lovely, piano-based "Walk it Back" with singer Michael Stipe at his best, and "Alligator, Aviator, Autopilot, Antimatter", a loose, fun, punk-rocker. Overall, "Collapse" echoes many of R.E.M.'s previous releases, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's just that after roaring back to form with 2008's "Accelerate" (containing the classic "Hollow Man"), this latest work is a bit of a let-down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finding their place!, March 25 2011

This review is from: Collapse Into Now (Audio CD)
R.E.M has had an unsettled and disjointed last 15 years, but it seems that with this new album, in addition to their previous album Accelerate, they are finding their water is settling. They are not recreating Reckoning or Life's Rich Pageant (nor should they), but this album has the same honesty, purity and heart of those classic albums. I myself am guilty of this as I have been a fan since Murmer-this a natural curse with any band that has a 30 plus year career. Here R.E.M. seem to be having a lot of fun, and deciding not to tour has likely taken a considerable amount of pressure off of them. In the meantime, I will spin this album and enjoy listening to a band that continues to age well. Good to see and hear the band creating such great music!
