This is the first R.E.M. album that has at least semi-clicked with me. I appreciate the richer sound, the moodier and more diverse songwriting, and the overall consistency--at least compared to everything else I've heard from them. It helps that I LOVED "Orange Crush" growing up.

This is a varied album but is unified by a undeniable moodiness. Excellent songs from start to finish and more than a small hint of the sort of sour alt rock that would become so popular in the 90s.

As an R.E.M mega fan this was their last release I really dug .The production here goes up a notch with crisp sharp sounds. The ensuring Green world tour would catapult R.E.M to the threshold of mega stardom . Green sits as my 4th favorite R.E.M album behind Life's Rich Pageant , Fables and Document . Green is a superb album.

Hairshirt rated at 78 makes me cry man tears. It is easily a top 10 REM song in my book.

Really great album. I didn't like their albums after this, including the much vaunted Automatic for the People. But this is their third great album, for me, after Document and LRP.

I'm not a big REM fan but I really like this album. The tracks in the main are strong (only The Wrong Child and Remembering California are sub 8 out of 10]. Five of the tracks are 9+, but maybe this is an album for non REM fans as it seems a little underrated on here to me.

"Pop song'89, get up, turn you inside out, and especially, stand, are the closest the band ever got to party rock, they're all enjoyable and catchy."

Because you don't understand R.E.M., you probably missed the fact that most of these songs were mocking the scene... especially Stand (read the lyrics).

Definitely an excellent REM record. Highlighted, in my opinion, by the underrated and awesome 'You are the everything.' I dig it.
