Episode 58: R.E.M. Pt. 2

R.E.M.
Standard

NovembeR.E.M. is finally coming to a close as we work our way from R.E.M.’s breakout success in the early 90’s to their honestly quite bleak and depressing decline right up to their breakup. It’s a real rollercoaster ride, this one, full of harsh truths, stark revelations, and ill-advised rapper cameos. But it also has “Nightswimming”, so it isn’t all for naught. Plus, at the end, we finally reveal our top five R.E.M. albums, as well as the very exciting lineup we have in store for the end of the year, so stay tuned, and we’ll all get out of this feeling the reason for the season.
