Now Hear This… R.E.M. “Walk It Back”

So I just got the new R.E.M. album, Collapse Into Now, which comes out on March 8th.  After a quick first listen I was a little disappointed, but there are a few gems in there.  Overall, I am a big R.E.M. fan.  I think Automatic For the People was underrated and  one of their best albums ever.  Their last few albums haven’t really been as great, but they have always been R.E.M. to the core.  The single stand out track (after just one listening to) was “Walk it Back” which is a fragile, beautifully simple song that reminds me of their Automatic for the People heyday.  I’m going to give the album a few more listens to before I can fully form an opinion, but that’s how it always is with an R.E.M. album.

    Automatic for the People… underrated? It’s the album most commonly ranked as their best.
