Everybody has there own opinion
on 29 April 2014
I simply cannot understand why this album is so highly regarded. Apart from the obvious hits this album has little to offer. Yes Nightwimming is lovely and Everybody Hunts is incredibly powerful but the bad songs vastly outnumber the good. The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite is too whiny for my liking and Star Me Kitten is just dull and boring. Also many of the songs sound the same and are hard to tell apart. The album as a whole has nothing to make you want to listen to it more that once. 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.
