Like many, I hopped on the REM train in college, but by the time I graduated, I was ready to disembark. Unlike most, I think Fables of the Reconstruction was their peak and they gradually went downhill album by album from there.

Great band who may have had a few commercial hits change their sound but did not hurt their sound.

The essential alternative band. I tend to prefer listening to their 80's material, but R.E.M. was a phenomenal band throughout their 30 year run.

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.

From Copeland 01/26/2016 05:12
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.
