Begin the Begin (again).

OK, can I just say how much I'm l-o-v-i-n-g REM's Accelerate? I finally gave in and downloaded it this week and now I can't turn it off. It's as though all of a sudden they woke up and said "oh riiiiiiiiiiight, we're a band...as in a group of people occupying the same room at the same time playing the same music and having noticeable fun doing so" after far too many years of wandering in an angsty and experimental wilderness. They lost me with Automatic for the People and we haven't been on speaking terms since. I blame them for inspiring that loathesome emo crap...had they never thoughtlessly unleashed 'Everybody Hurts' on an unsuspecting world, we might have been spared the current crop of whiny baby boys. One would hope, anyway.

  1. Agree on "Everybody Hurts." VERY bad move on the part of the boys. Accelerate is FAB.
