It's hard to imagine that Treasure first saw the light of day in 1984. It's so a head of it's time that it's scary. I loved it in 1984 when I first purchased it on vinyl. Firstly loving the beautiful cover (A must for all artists on the 4AD label) and then falling in love with each piece of gorgeous music.
It's hard to pick a favourite track though, simply because I truely do love them all. I love the swirl of the organ on Amelia and the slow build-up on the track Donimo. Some words you can pick out others, I'm sure, come from the wonderful imagination of Elizabeth Fraser. Brilliant.
Treasure is just that. A pure Treasure.

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.
