FACTORY SEALED DIGIPACK CD & DVD-EAN 093624859628 WARNER BROS-2003-MADE IN THE EU

Amazon.co.uk

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

By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 28 Jun. 2003
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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...

This record has their most focused political songs taking up the first half of the album.
Finest Work Song starts the record with the clarion call "the time to rise has been engaged / you're better best to rearrange".
Welcome To The Occupation is a Chomsky style look at the United States economic occupation of South America "offering the educated, primitive and loyal / welcome to the occupation" . When Stipe sings of "Sugar cane and coffee cup, copper steel and cattle / an annotated history, the forest for the fire" it reminds me of school lessons looking at maps of the world where the western countries are labeled with their name and developing countries marked only by the product they provide to the western world.
Exhuming McCarthy pinpoints the trick pulled off by Reaganomics; "vested interests, united ties, landed gentry rationalise / look who bought the myth, buy jingo (=) buy America". I can't think of any other song that so clearly and succinctly articulates how patriotism and nationalism are tools of the wealthy and powerful elite to maintain their wealth and security.
Disturbance at the Heron House targets the "gathering of grunts and greens / cogs and grunts and hirelings" who fed on the 1980s obsession with deregualted capitalism, inspired by Reagan's favourite economic guru, Milton Friedman. But "when feeding time has come and gone / they'll lose their heart and head for home / try to tell us something we don't know". Which is of course what happened. In the late 80s and early 90s the economic bubble did burst and Bush was chucked out.
The politics is rounded off by a cover of Wire's Strange.

The last of the 5 studio albums R.E.M. recorded for IRS Records finally gets the DELUXE EDITION CD treatment in 2012 and like the others before it - "Reckoning" (1983), "Murmur" (1983), "Fables Of The Reconstruction" (1985) and "Life's Rich Pageant" (1986) – it's a mixed bag of vastly improved sound quality offset by hollow extras you're never going to play, infuriating packaging and a far-too-steep price tag.
