R.E.M. had always promised to break up if any members left the band, but when Bill Berry amicably parted ways with the band they decided to continue on without him as a trio.
R.E.M. as a whole seem re-invigorated here, and the end result is easily the band’s most rocking and varied collection to date.
R.E.M. then released their major label debut, Green, which was less than ecstatically received by both critics and fans, though in retrospect it was another strong album overall. /sfloman/rem.html   (4112 words)

 TANGMONKEY.COM [ REVIEW: Idlewild: The Remote Part ]
Idlewild have now recorded a record that should not only banish the REM comparisons, but soon we will hear people saying that "[insert new band name here] are good, but they sound a lot like Idlewild." Indeed: they have risen to the level of something unique, powerful, and worthy-to-be-borrowed-from.
Both feature the odd good track, but on the whole neither is very noteworthy -- basically, Idlewild were a band trying to balance the fact they wanted to play punk music with the fact that their lead singer, the Dickensianly-named Roddy Woomble, sounded eerily like REM.
There's no way a band can, in the course of a year, go from bland REM-influenced grunge to making an album that will, if there is a just God, be absolutely massive and turn them into world-class superstar rockers. /columns/104948816155977.php   (565 words)

It's the right place for REM to be given both the state of the world and the state of the band.
The signature Byrds-inspired jangley guitar lines are gone, but all the band's pretension and insight remain on its new album New Adventures in Hi-Fi, a record that has the heart but not the face of their previous works.
REM has developed a satirical sense that stops short of lunacy, which has been necessary given their role in the pop music world. /stupub/ocreview/archives/1996.09.13/arts/rem.html   (891 words)

 Prindle Record Reviews - R.E.M.
R.E.M. (they use the dots in their name intentionally; REM was a DIFFERENT southern jangle-pop band that existed before them--no joke!) did themselves a damn good job with this fact I owned the original tape years before I picked up the CD version of Dead Letter Office.
REM did not feel the same, so a bootlegger was forced to create Dead Giveaway Office and sell it on street corners 'round the globe, as women of the night showcased their wares and drunken charlatans staggered through the bracing Chicago wind to islets of their own sick misery.
Personally, I like hearing bands do covers, and as Stipe and Buck, at least, are avowed VU fans, three songs by those guys seems okay to me. Anyone who doesn't have a problem with the Velvets shouldn't have a problem with R.E.M.'s take on "Pale Blue Eyes." It rivals "Superman" as their best cover ever. /rema.htm   (19432 words)

R.E.M. was quickly shedding the "underground college band" label, and became known as an innovator and leader of the alternative rock scene.
R.E.M. played their first show in April 1980 when singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry got together for a friend's birthday party at an abandoned Church which also served as the band's residence.
R.E.M released "In Time," a best-of collection in 2003, which chronicles some of the highlights of their 15 years on Warner Bros. Records. /rem   (1652 words) Automatic for the People: Music
i'm not saying it's not a good song, it's just that it is the representation so many people carry in their heads of rem as a "sad band", which they can be, but tthey also have happy songs e.g.
Bold songs such as ominous "Drive" and the empathetic "Everybody Hurts" demonstrated that the band were not reluctant to experiment, while the Karl Denver opening on "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" and the elegiac Andy Kaufman tribute "Man On The Moon" were as good as anything they had ever recorded.
An altogether blanced album, Automatic is by far R.E.M.'s best work; it sees them mature beyond the abstractness of thier earlier work and deal with some of the most universal human themes. /exec/obidos/ASIN/B000002MG1   (1218 words)

Buck still has dander to spare.” I imagine most R.E.M. fans found it not only embarrassing, but likely a hint that Buck had reached a point of intellectual and creative exhaustion that bodes no good for the band’s future.
He was raised in Rhode Island, where he became obsessed with the following bands in the following order: the Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, the Dead Kennedys, the Clash.
It's not a matter of making an album that sounds like one of their older's a matter of creating a -good- album, which REM has failed to do in quite a few years. /wp-srv/zforum/01/segal051601.htm   (1218 words)

 The Grapevine
The death of rock music is being proved by the fact that REM don’t sound like a rock band anymore.
Having lost drummer Bill Berry last year, and having their most recent album sell almost half the number of its two predecessors just after re-signing to Warner Bros. for $80million, there was a certain ludicrous pressure on REM going into this release, a pressure for them to prove themselves.
They have dealt with it admirably though; indeed Berry’s departure seems to have in a way liberated the band. /~grapebox/rem.html   (1218 words)

In October of 1997, R.E.M. shocked fans and the media with the announcement that Berry was amicably exiting the group to retire to life on his farm; the remaining members continued on as a three-piece, soon convening in Hawaii to begin preliminary work on their next LP.
By the time they returned to performing with the Monster tour in 1995, the band had been acknowledged by critics and musicians as one of the forefathers of the thriving alternative rock movement, and they were rewarded with the most lucrative tour of their career.
While there were a number of hardcore and punk bands in the US during the early '80s, R.E.M. brought guitar-pop back into the underground lexicon. /bands/rock/rem_1253   (1988 words)

For their first few years REM was the quintessential college radio band, releasing high-quality, low-selling music and establishing a strong local following while their name slowing spread.
The members of the band took some time to experiment with other projects before their first hit came - "Fall On Me" reached number 94 on the charts in 1986, and while it was not enough to make them house-hold names it did help move them from college radio to commercial stations.
