R.E.M. Murmur remastered

April 12, 2010

It’s criminal that Stipe has gotten this far, the face painted cue ball of low volume college rock has been crooning his waffling sixth form poetry over watery guitar for over 20 years. Now his pockets are once again stuffed with tofu money from this utterly unneccessary series of re-releases designed to once again drown us in the man’s torrid misery. The only interest comes in the shoddy live recordings of disk 2, where future ‘classics’ are thrown out without as much as a murmur from the crowd, and as the listener you are forced to ask the question ‘why was anyone ever bothered?’
