Top critical review
on 9 December 2017
For me this has to one of the most overrated albums of the 90’. It has some of the bands best songs such as the clever and catchy Man on the Moon, the lovely Nightwimming and the touching and moving Everybody Hunts however the bad songs vastly outnumber the good.
I just find many of the songs on here such as Star Me Kitten, Drive and Find the River lack a bit of spark and personality. The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite is the worst song on here. It is incredibly childish, whiny and irritating.. Due to the lack of catchy melodies and un-interesting lyrics the album has offers little to make me want to listen to it regularly. To conclude if your new to R.E.M I couldn't recommend this album to you as it has nothing to offer that wouldn't be an a greatest hits.
