A controlled but emphatic throat-clearing from the elder statesmen to remind you that they're still in the room
2011 | Label: Warner Bros.

Just two songs into R.E.M.'s 15th — that's right, 15th — studio album, Michael Stipe goes self-referential: "I think I'll sing in rhyme/ I'll give it one more time/ I'll show the kids how to do it, fine." And then in the next verse, "It's just like me to overstay my welcome, man."

Whether or not, 30-plus years into their career, R.E.M. have overstayed their welcome, man, is a source of debate for greybeards whose hearts… read more »

Seriously Good

FrankensteinsOffspring

There are some tremendous tracks on here - 'Every Day Is Yours To Win," "Uberlin," and "All The Best" are my favorite. Stop looking for "Murmur." That masterpiece is in the past. Don't long for it so much that you dismiss this wonderful album.

Getting older with R.E.M.

inkythecat

I works for me. It is good getting older with R.E.M. Some tracks are mellow, others poke fun at getting old, and some still pick it up a notch to a 20-something energy level.

Reviewing the review...

martuccij

I haven't heard this recording, but the review above (all music guide) is virtually unreadable in its bloated, excessive attempt to be literature ("the album seems to hint at denouement" - give me a break - sheeesh)

Amazing

MDez

I've been an REM fan since Chronic Town. They have not impressed since New Adventures in Hi Fi (their best album), but Collapse Into Now captivates me. Stipe and the boys are absolutely amazing on this new album. "Just the slightest bit of finesse might have left a little less mess."

R.E.M. Ugh.....

blckdrgn

I liked them in the 80's and this album is not good at all. They need to retire!!!!!!!!

Best R.E.M. in years

Offbalance

Granted, I haven't listened to too much R.E.M. since New Adventures in High Fi, but I have to say that the new album really captures the sound and spirit that I loved so well for so long.

R.E.M. Goes Green

By Annie Zaleski, Contributor

In November 1988, R.E.M. released their sixth studio album, Green. The record was an exclamation point at the end of a hectic but successful five years for the Athens, Georgia, quartet. Starting with 1983's Murmur, R.E.M. released an album a year and was constantly on tour, which led to a steady increase in mainstream popularity and record sales. Their previous album, 1987's Document, went platinum and spawned a Top 10 single, "The One I Love." Despite… more »

Icon: R.E.M.

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

Conventional wisdom about R.E.M. holds that the group's best records were made in their early, indie years and that their work for Warner Brothers, though commercially successful, was creatively fallow. And, like much conventional wisdom, this is patently false. Though it provides a convenient dividing line for the group's sprawling discography and serves to reaffirm shopworn assertions that major labels ruin vital indie bands, even a cursory run through eight of the nine studio records… more »

Y Robyn Hitchcock Matters

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

I don't know if the Y in Robyn Hitchcock's name was there on his birth certificate, but I can't imagine it spelled "Robin." That Y is the same slightly odd Y that's present in the Byrds, in Syd Barrett and in Bob Dylan - arguably the three biggest historical presences behind his music. He's got an enormous, three-decade-long discography, but the early solo albums that have just come to eMusic include some of the sweetest… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Co-produced by Jacknife Lee, who also worked on 2008′s Accelerate, Collapse into Now picks up where its predecessor left off, featuring several upbeat rock songs while also making room for midtempo numbers and atmospheric ballads. Patti Smith, Eddie Vedder, and Peaches all make guest vocal appearances., Rovi – Andrew Leahey
