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 ...

It was inevitable that signing to big boys Warner Bros would result in a big sounding album with a more commercial slant. But this is not to say that REM suddenly abandoned the credentials that made them such a fine album producing outfit throughout the 1980's. 'Green' is the sound of a band full of confidence. Previous album 'Document' had elevated their profile a great extent, now it was time to take their sound on to a bigger audience. From the opening track 'Pop Song 89' it's clear that they have opted for a more listener friendly approach, mixing typically oblique lyrics into a smooth pop format. There are other pop classics here too, 'Get Up' and 'Stand' being the most obvious examples. But most interesting of all is the world-weary, paranoid 'World Leader Pretend' which attempts to draw parallels between band spokesman and dictator without the pompous indulgence of, say, Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick in the Wall'. 'Green' is the perfect transition album, capturing a band coming out of indie obscurity and blinking at the bright lights of the global stage. Fans of REM's later work will be able to get plenty from this album: it may not be as user-friendly as 'Out of Time' or 'Automatic for the People' but it's still a rewarding experience so if you liked the REM albums mentioned above (and, let's face it, most people only really know these two)don't hesitate to invest in 'Green'. You won't regret it. But don't stop there either, go further back to 'Document' and 'Lifes Rich Pageant' for even more relatively unknown gems.

Aptly titled, "Green", REM's sixth record album - and their first for globalmegacompany Warners who kept them until their disbandment in 2011 - saw them stride confidently, and with barely a glance, into the big leagues. At this point, the band moved from the Manchester Apollo to headlining the Birmingham NEC and Wembley Arena, the venues they were still playing in their final years.

On the surface though, the record is unbowed by commerciality : the more accessable songs - "Stand", "Orange Crush", and so forth - sound unforced, natural extensions of the quirky pop philosophy demonstrated on their previous albums. Here though, and with the astute muscle of Warner Bros. Behidn them, REM followed a path that frankly seems inconceivable now : that of a slowly growing cult band steadily becoming more popular with each record, before ascending from being the world's biggest cult band to one of the world's biggest bands. Only U2 eclipsed them in the early 90's, which is now, surprisingly two decades ago, and it is now "Green"s twenty fifth anniversary. As a record, well, you either know it or you don't. A spiky, literate and aware record, the title hints at naivety, at political ecology, and in reference to a state of embryonic, unmoulded nature.

As with other REM reissues/remasters, the additional material is almost exclusively unheard : here it is a live show from the tail end of the 1988-89 world tour from Greensboro, where the band were a tightly coiled, flawless music machine on borderline insanity after a decade of furious, frenzied touring. Whilst recorded for the 1989 live VHS "Tourfilm", and parts of it may have made b-sides in the great age of the CD single, this is the first time the show has been released in its entirity.

I'm torn between this and Automatic For The People as my favourite REM album (which given my favourite REM album would probably also be my favourite album of all time is fairly high praise). This is by no means as perfect or coherent an album as "Automatic..." or indeed "Out Of Time", "Reveal" and several others and it is indeed a transitory album but its flaws do not detract from its overall brilliance, which stems from having such a strong collection of songs. While Orange Crush" and "Stand" offer the pop, as it were, to draw in casual listeners, there are more complex, more beautiful songs once you are pulled in. Of these, "The Wrong Child" is the best, a painful paean to being different and am convinced, partially from experience, that the chorus "I'm not supposed to be like this...but it's ok" sum up being disabled, scarred or different as well as any words written in history. Elsewhere, "You Are The Everything" is beautiful and "World Leader Pretend" is a phenomenal song. While I feel "Automatic..." wins out as an album overall, I feel this is the album to buy if you are looking for Stipe's finest lyrics and trying to understand how REM got to where they are. A flawed masterpiece that, through its flaws, becomes even more of a masterpiece

Others have stated they do not like the packaging of these re-issues I for one love them , ok the cd sleeve is a bit of a pain but the boxes look great lined up together on the shelf
The remastered version ( of prob) my favourite REM album sounds great , a few distinct differences but like all music it depends on what system you play it on ..If you're going to invest in great quality formats then you should invest in a good system if not just download the compressed lossy MP3 version.
The other main reason to purchase this is the live cd, excellent quality and great to hear tracks that would later be included on out of time ( the first time hearing some of them live)
If you're a fan get it, its very well priced and again looks and sounds great
