Biography

R.E.M. was an American rock band formed in Athens, Georgia, USA, in 1980 by Michael Stipe (lead vocals), Peter Buck (guitar), Mike Mills (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Bill Berry (drums and percussion). R.E.M. was one of the first popular alternative rock bands, and gained early attention due to Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals. R.E.M. released ...

Singer Michael Stipe finally confesses that even he doesn't know what he's trying to say--among the lines flying by are "tryin' to tell you something we don't know" and "there's something going on that's not quite right." But R.E.M.'s roar is at its sharpest, as Peter Buck's guitars twist up surf riffs and the Bill Berry-Mike Mills rhythm section captures the force of forebears Big Star and the Byrds. After half a decade of American college-rock heroism, R.E.M. achieved its first hit album thanks to the rambling "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" and the gentle (but subtly barbed) "The One I Love". --Steve Knopper

This is an absolute classic R.E.M. record, the most familiar songs from which are The One I Love and It's The End Of The World As We Know It... If you've ever dismissed the band before for being a little too nice or twee, this, like Monster should blow that contention out of the water. There is a real political anger in most of the songs here, with the guitars more jagged than jangly. Along with the two already mentioned tracks, other stand-outs are Finest Worksong, Welcome To The Occupation, Lightnin' Hopkins and Oddfellows Local 151. I'd hate to get too judgemental but really, if you don't like this album you'd be a fool.

REM were already critically acclaimed and fairly successful by the time they came to record fifth album Document. They were also already growing tired of the poor distribution by label IRS Records and the album that followed showed a group straining at the edges of their modest commercial success.

The songs on Document are timeless classics laden with universal appeal, while still carrying the REM personality and hallmarks that made them alt-rock's greatest band.

The two obvious standout songs are its huge singles, 'The One I Love' and 'It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)'. Both of them are so well-written about that if you haven't heard them they're all the reason you need to buy this album by themselves.

Not only are they not the only reasons to buy the album, they're not even the BEST reasons to buy the album. The album tracks are if anything even better than their famous brothers.

Opener 'Finest Worksong' is staggering, a swirling beast that rocks harder than REM ever had to that point. Stipe's oblique political viewpoints are more obvious than ever on the likes of the searing 'Exhuming McCarthy.' 'Disturbance At The Heron House' soars on a nagging, hooky riff. And while virtually everything on the album is accessible to an extent, 'Fireplace' is still beguilingly strange.

The only song remotely close to being out of place is 'Odfellows Local 151', which feels like an unfinished experiment and belongs on a different album. That aside the album is virtually flawless and a contender for REM's best ever. The album is essential to your collection and if you're new to REM, a great place to start.

this album has many classic rem songs on it as well as a number of live tracks which is when rem are at their best. the live version of so central rain which appears on the same tracking as time after time is increduably beautifully sung - it may only superficially be about phone lines being down due to bad weather but the way michael sings it you'd have to be in a pretty hard mood not to cry. i recommend you get this album even if you only quite like rem but otherwise at least download that track.

Document was their last album for IRS (originally released in 1987), prior to REM signing to Warners in 1988 (a move that many bemoaned in the music press- REM being the best kept secret for many in the 80s- the missing link between Richard Thompson & The Smiths!). 1985's brilliant Fables of the Reconstruction had almost split the band, the following years Life's Rich Paegent had Stipe singing clearly (no longer Mr Mumbles) & a robust sound captured by John Couger Mellancamp's producer Don Dixon. Document goes one further, REM finding a perfect co-producer with Scott Litt- this album becoming the one that pitched them from cult-college band to perhaps the next U2...
Two of the singles were big US hits and got them noticed in the UK: both It's the End of the World As We Know It (& I Feel Fine) and The One I Love would be hits when reissued by IRS in the wake of Out of Time's huge success. It's the End...is a wild blend of rockabilly, Subterranean Homesick Blues and startling harmonies- Stipe's dream of people with the initials LB (Lester Bangs, Leonard Bernstein, Lenny Bruce...) occurs and Mills call/response vocals "It's time I had some time alone!" are superb. Just a pity that Billy Joel would rip it off for his dire 1989 (s)hit single We Didn't Start the Fire! The One I Love is an important song (even if it's a little similar to Smithereens single Behind the Wall of Sleep from 1986)- a brilliant riff worthy of Neil Young pins down a deceptively cruel song ("a simple prop to occupy my time")- this & Every Breath You Take remain the nastiest songs that people think are about love! There is an alternate version of The One I Love, originally called This One Goes Out here- which is sublime and more acoustic & was originally found on It's the End...

R.E.M.s 5th studio release and this was the very first REM album I bought back in 1987/88. and marks the start of a different direction for the band a more rockier indie sound than on previous albums which eventually become there trademark alt sound which will carried forward to there next album.

I first got into them when I heard their Mini breakthrough radio hit 'One I Love' on the radio and was completely blown away by it!
When the album came out I decided to buy it, but on first play I admit wasn't taken by it. The reason why was the fact it like most REM albums it is a bit of a mixed bag and was sort of expecting more of 'One I love' but after a few plays I really started to get into it.

This album was probably an important mini breakthrough for the band during 1987-89 as some of the singles on here were later re-released a few years later to capitalise on the success of 1988s 'Green' album, but it would be the start of a slow road to success for the band with next two albums until 'Out of time' in 1991 when everything changed!

As they say the rest is history!!

Stand out tracks are the single releases
One I Love
