Well folks, fuck it, I got the FTP to work long enough, and this album is worth it… And I promise, this is the last R.E.M. post for a while (I’m already digging the hell out of the new album by Le Loup), but on the flight here (and all morning long, for that matter), I’ve been loving R.E.M. Live. Finally, we get a real live recording of R.E.M. And is it a greatest hits album? Nope… it’s loaded with new material, and it shows, without argument, how well the new sits with the old! It sounds great, Stipe, everyone…
Oh man, so good…. So good… Made the flight so nice indeed. Your turn, enjoy (in order)!
When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on
Don’t let yourself go, ’cause everybody cries and everybody hurts
