Pop is not really their thing. You can just hear how desperately they try to sound ‘cool’ on the opening song. And even if that’s all ironic for the message of the song, you should do it well. If the concept is “let’s make a song about pop music and sound like a pop band”, then you should actually sound like a pop band.

Some very good moments, the rest is bang average for a band of this calibre.

From Brad1770
What to make of Out Of Time? As an R.E.M mega fan I’ve grappled with this question for 25 years & TBH I still don’t know & may never fully understand. The 1st 4 songs in Radio Song , Loosing My Religion, Low and Near Wild Heaven are average to say the least before Endgame , Shiny Happy People ( yes I love this song even though the band doesn’t) Belong and Half A World Away ( am I the only one who thinks their unplugged version is better than the album version? ) stops the rot and resumes regular transmission . Texacarna is a misplaced inclusion & should have been a B Side . Then we close with the magestic Country Feedback Song with may well be the best R.E.M track period leaving me breathless to this day and incredible Me In Honey. All up it’s a real mixed bag of The Good, The Bad and The Kinda OK . I’ll be listening to the 25th Anniversary Edition wire to wire as per every 25 year release but I recon I’ll be skipping a few tracks to get to the good ones

The album that catapulted REM to superstardom. Out of time, is a warm, sunny record, the band's ultimate Americana moment. It's a rich collection of sounds though predominantly acoustic based. Radio song, kicks the album of in superb fashion, followed by, losing my religion, without a doubt, one of REM's greatest songs, and one of the best tracks of the nineties. Low, is a brooding epic, with, near wild heaven, following, one of their most summery moments. End game, is a pleasant enough semi-instrumental. Shiny happy people, has always been controversial among REM fans, personally, I think it's a lovely little pop song, harmless fun. Belong, is interesting, and, half a world away, is excellent, my second favourite track on the album after, religion. Texarkana, is great, and that's followed by the atmospheric, country feedback. Brilliant. Me in honey, ends the record on a high note. Out if time, is a consistently satisfying album, one of their best.

From Boxyno1
A wonderful album. This has a softer sound to the previous albums, and is really quite lush in places, there's also a good mix of pop and alternative rock
