A really good album, with songs that reflect on their teenage years, growing old and mental health. A very mature album for a band that were heading into their thirty,s.I love find the river, and try not to breathe.

Excellent album. Probably my favourite by one of my favourite alt-rock groups. R.E.M. is not for everyone, but who they appeal too, they really appeal too.

Stipe’s vocals don’t really reach their full potential in this thin post punk production. The jangle pop - what made Murmur so great - is hard to find on this record. Just a bit disappointing, and I don’t understand at all what people find so special about this.

it's okay. Some good songs. The album isn't outstanding though. Rated too high on this website.

Really, really top and bottom heavy. I think they could have cut out most of the middle and made a perfect 30 minute album. Still, the good stuff makes it an album I'll come back to time and time again.

One of the most emotional albums ever, and one that will always stop me dead in my tracks

A brilliant album usually rated as their best but not my favourite from them. I think both Monster & New adventures In Hi-Fi are better all round albums and Up & Murmer are another 2 of my faves. AFTP does contain two of their greatest moments with Man On The Moon & Everybody Hurts and as a few others have said Ignoreland is an underrated gem.

Decent album, but lacks a consistency that other great albums contain. By the end I feel like I have heard the same song a few times
