My favourite R.E.M. album.
I think this was a small step backwards after the brilliance of Chronic Town and Murmur. I much prefer their other records in the I.R.S. years.
So. Central Rain.
There's just something about So Central Rain and Time After Time that's so beguiling and brilliant. REM at its nonpretentious best.
No such thing as sophomore jinx for R.E.M. This has some classic songs such as So. Central Rain and (Don't Go Back To Rockville).
REM picks it up a bit on this one... Finding their way to the brilliance of Document.
I admit I prefer the later R.E.M. to their IRS years, but no matter your preference you can't really knock an album with this many good songs. I've been pulling this one out a lot more lately.
Good, dark follow-up to their debut, "reckoning" continues developing R.E.M.'s college/alternative rock palette and finds them rocking out a wee bit more.
Reckoning seems to do everything that Murmur does, just without quite pulling it off.
Whilst Murmur used jangling guitars and harmonies, it seems Reckoning goes for a more riff-orientated sound.
There's some seriously great stuff here. "Haborcoat" acts as a reverb heavy, epic opener, leading into such greats as So. Central Rain, Pretty Persuasion and Time after Time. Not to forget the anthem that is (Don't Go Back To) Rockville.
However, Murmur didn't have a single duff track in it's favour, whereas Reckoning has the acceptable, but by no means great "7 Chinese Brothers" and "Camera", which I'm not sure I could hum entirely to you.
