20 Years of Automatic For The People


Today I did a post at Idolator on the twentieth anniversary of R.E.M.'s most perfect album, Automatic For The People. Please check it out!

Once again, very nice piece. I like what you say about friends coming and going but the music is always there for us.

Oh, haha. I did not write that little bit at the very top. That's boilerplate for each backtacking post.

This album was the first time I ever came across an instrumental, and I had zero idea what to do with that. Bupkis. Took me about three minutes to realise no words were coming.

'Nightswimming' is an excellent 'closure' song, and it could be more exploited for scenes like that on TV or in the movies.. It's sweetness and bitter at once.

I read the review for Kylie's "Fever"....I wish YOU were the one who reviewed it. I think it would have been very good.
