I very nearly bought New Adventures in Hi-Fi by R.E.M. in my local charity shop the other day but I wasn't sure if I had it or not. Turns out I don't so I'll pick it up next time I'm in if it's still there.
This got me checking and confirmed what I thought. I actually own more post Out of Time/Automatic For The People R.E.M. albums than pre ones. I suspect that this is because they are more readily available in charity shops.
The only pre ones I own are Reckoning and the 1991 Best Of from the IRS years.
This is clearly wrong as it is an established fact that their early stuff is much better that their later offerings. Here is some proof.
For all things R.E.M. can I point you in the direction of The Robster
R.E.M. -Radio Free Europe
R.E.M. - I Believe
