What else can there be left to write about when it comes to R.E.M?
Well, whilst some of the information in this book isn't exactly new it still has some really interesting snippets to get your teeth into. ie at the end of each chapter there is a 'Timeline' which gives tour dates, various sessions and radio dates.
Also there is a wonderful array of photographs mostly unseen before some colour some black and white.
So is this book worth buying? Well it gets a big thumbs-up from this R.E.M fan. So maybe I'm a little biased but I'd say buy.

I'll Take The Book! 30 July 2004
By Dan Stanley - Published on
Format: Paperback
My friends bought me this book for my 18th... I love them so much! This is an absolutely fantastic book!

It has detailed information of the bands history... from their early days of jamming together to what they are now. It also outlines the unfortunate circumstances under which Bill Berry, the band drummer, left the band.

It is well illustrated, with plenty of odds and ends to keep all R.E.M. fans satisfied. At the end, it even has a table showing how their singles and albums faired on the UK and US charts!

It's a long read, but it's a blast all the way through. If you call yourself a fan of the best band in the world, you need to get this book!

Helps me to REMember... 2 Mar. 2005
By HankieG - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a very well researched and chronicled book. During the writing of Adventures in Hi-Fi, the authors found my black and white photographs of R.E.M. published on my website and contacted me about using them for the book. I no longer had the exact date of when the photos were shot, but they knew. It's awesome to see R.E.M.'s journey all laid out in this well organized book. A labor of care and love, great work by Rob Jovanovic and Tim Abbott!
