Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

R.E.M.

Accelerate

2008-04-07

Talk about a comeback album! Michael Stipe, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills return to greatness on their newest and dare I say some of their best work. This album is vintage R.E.M. with a modern twist that makes them completely relevant today. Stipe is back writing strong, meaningful songs that will become anthems for the new R.E.M. generation. Check out tracks 1 “Living Well Is The Best Revenge”, track 4 “Hollow Man”, track 6 “Accelerate”, and track 11 “I’m Gonna DJ”. - Lane Zoerhof
