It's only rock and roll but I like it!:)

The original vinyl album is pretty great. The 'bonus tracks' on the CD version not so much, sadly. More is not always better.

So that was not a good idea. Listen to the worst album of my favourite band of all time, for the first time in many years.

My personal opinion was always this album is more dull than really bad. And dull it indeed is. You don't expect an R.E.M. album to be dull. Even worse, some songs are really bad. Oh dear.

This all said, at least there is Leaving New York, arguably the last truly great R.E.M. song. While the next two (final two) R.E.M. albums are both better albums than Around The Sun, neither has a song so great as Leaving New York on it; or a great song anyway.
