5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 19 Sept. 2001
This review is from: MURMUR (Audio CD)
REM's debut album has had a major influence on rock music in America. But thats another story. Any album is about the music, and Murmur is sublime. The term Timeless Classic should not be used lightly, e.g Nevermind, Love's Forever Changes. I would safely say Murmur is a timeless classic. I first bought it a few years ago, and on the first listen I was blown away - it sounded so fresh and new (it was then already 16+ years old). The production by Mitch Easter was amazing!
Getting to the songs - well where to start. Murmur is packed with imagination, mystery, beauty and emotion. Perfect Circle is as good a song as they have written. Talk about the Passion is wonderful. All twelve tracks have something to offer. The trio of Pilgrimage, Moral Kiosk and 9-9 provide so much repeated joy.
Some critics have pointed towards Stipe's vocals as being too hard to figure out - but thats half of the appeal - you bring your own interpretation to the song, more so with the songs on Murmur. For me music isn't all about the meaning of the lyrics, its about the way it makes me feel. Murmur is awesome - an album to make you feel special. An album to treasure.
