Fables Of The Reconstruction (The I.R.S. Years Vintage)

New Adventures In Hi-Fi (U.S. Version)

Up (U.S. Version)
Up (U.S. Version)

Accelerate [Int'L Jewelcase]

In Time: The Best of REM 1988 - 2003

Dead Letter Office
Dead Letter Office
"Dead Letter Office - Collection of 80s B-sides and rarities, a bit of a mixed bag. However, tracks 16-20 are the pre Murmur "Chronic Town" release from 1982, which is well worth a listen. 6.5/10"
R.E.M. Live
R.E.M. Live
"R.E.M. Live - Great live CD + DVD from Around The Sun Tour. 7.5/10"
