From sethmadsen 08/09/2016 04:25
One of the best discographies for a band at it for 30 years. Absolutely instrumental in the independent/alternative movement. They have that bitter-sweet, pop yet anti-social aesthetic that I absolutely adore.

I compare them to the Kinks: great career but overshadowed by other bands of the same period.

Greatest band of the 1980s and early 1990s. Looking back, it's easy to forget how innovative and influential they were because so many other bands tried--and failed--to replicate their sound. This was the band that brought "alternative" into the mainstream.

One of the greatest bands of all time, at their best they write true classics, at their worst they're still interesting and atmospheric. Not many bands can boast consistency like that.

I just can't get into them. I've listened to Automatic For the people at least four times, but I really don't see the big deal about it. Losing my Religion is a really good song, but overall they don't really impress me.

I once heard REM described as a band that everyone loves but no one ever listens to. This describes my attitude about them pretty well - I always love hearing their albums but it takes a lot to get me to listen to them in the first place (except Automatic for the People, that one's always in rotation). As varied as their output is, it always retains the same theme and general sound, which works to their advantage. One of the best of all time for sure.
