Start to finish, AFTP is as strong as any album. Make sure to check out Ignoreland, the one true rocker on the album. It's very underrated.

Majestic. This album helps to fight the depression better than others. No weak songs. Star Me Kitten is sooooo underrated.

My only complaint is that Nightswimming is so damn good, it overshadows everything else on the album.

While I prefer some of their earlier work, this is a very good album from one of my favorite bands. My favorite tracks are Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite, Ignoreland, Star Me Kitten, and Man on the Moon. Everybody Hurts can get a little annoying, but it doesn't detract from the album that much.

Even though I prefer Reckoning & Murmur to this, I can't deny what an analytical pop masterwork this is.

Poignant masterstroke and one of the happy ocurrences where the best selling album by an artist is also their best. R.E.M didn't have anything else to prove after this.

Even though Murmur remains my personal favourite R.E.M. album, Automatic arguably saw them at their creative peak. A very strong album from start to finish, blatant fillers like Sweetness Follow included. Drive is easily one of my favourite R.E.M. songs ever.
