Great album. As with most of their records in this period there are no bad songs but very few standouts either. This is their most energetic record and well worth having in any collection.
Lots of songs are still memorable after all these years and some remain classics. My pick for best album by a band that went so far in saving rock and roll during the dog days of the '80's. Begin the Begin, Fall On Me, Cuyahoga, Swan Swan H and Superman are all so great. They never made another album with so many standouts filled in with so many other fine cuts.
By far one of their best lp's, Fall On Me is a minor masterpiece.
I'm really impressed with Lifes Rich Pageant. I heard it was a solid album but I didn't think I'd like it as much as I do. It's somewhat transitional - perfectly balancing the accessibility of their post-IRS stuff and the elegance of their first three albums. It's a flawless piece of work. Sometimes I think it's even better than Murmur. The only complaint I have is the apostrophe omission in 'Lifes'...
Their last effort before they became world famous. And arguably their best. Stipe sounds raw and emotional, and Buck is at his versatile best. Never gets old.
This sounds like a couple of guys at the height of their creativity just having fun.
And when you can capture than in a record, you've captured something special.
One of their best albums. Definitely their most energetic. "Fall On Me" is a classic track.
Most thoughtful, most melodic REM album to that point... but funny thing is, I find their other early work more interesting. This is great, but Document and Murmur are really great.
This is definitely the fastest and most powerful of their early albums. It's also probably the most diverse. Excellent.
This is yet another solid alt-rocker from r.e.m. You can't really go wrong picking any of their albums from "new adventures in hi-fi" through to their debut. Still experimenting with their sound, this is more "murmur" than "hi-fi", embedded within the lo-fi songwriting that typifies their 80s output until "green" added more pop overtones. "begin the begin", "fall on me" and "superman" are my favs.
