4.0 out of 5 stars I know, it's only Rock'n Roll, but I like it!, 29 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Collapse Into Now: Special Edition Digipack (Audio CD)
Fifteen years after "New Adventures In Hi-Fi" and after 4 albums, each of them supposed to be "the best of our career" and each of them becoming a new deception for me, yes, even accelerate, at last R.E.M. returns to the right place. It's not "Green", "Out Of Time", "Automatic For The People", "Monster" or "New Adventures In Hi-Fi" but it seems that after 4 false attempts a three legged dog is finally a dog. Maybe some of the songs sound a bit like other of their previous albums, maybe, but I like them. Maybe sometimes we expect too much of just a piece of music named song and it may happen somehow some bands are trapped in this question when, actually, it's just as simple as: I know, it's only Rock'n Roll, but I like it! I also think the album works quite well as a whole and contains really powerfull tunes, rocky and catchy, but not sticky. Also, there are some slow quiet songs but this time they work, it's not a simple sucession of sad depressing tunes. I wonder if I will have to wait for another fifteen years to get again a real good cd that deserves the name R.E.M. on its sleeve. A final wish, I've missed the availability of an special edition containing the footage of the concert held at Hansa Studios, of which some is shown on the web. I like the intimate atmosphere of this event.
