R.E.M. – Accelerate

April 3, 2008

r.e.m. accelerate album cover

I have not been of clear thoughts recently, and thus have not had much time with myself to listen to new music. The new REM album is an example of something I anticipated but which has not impressed me. It is quite short (34 mins, most songs under three), it does mark a return to their older sound, the guitar is loud and riffs are there, Stipe murmurs but… so far I fail to sense urgency and passion. It is a step towards where they should’ve been going though. I’ll keep listening.
