So I saw this thread today at work and decided to listen to the "In Time: The Best of R.E.M. 1988-2003" album that I downloaded a while ago to see if I could get into them. I have to say, I was pleased.
It's a short commute, so I only got 4 songs in:
Man on the Moon - Of course I've heard this before, very good song
Everybody Hurts - Classic
Bad Day - Liked it
Stand - Liked it
This is the track list from that album - http://en.wikipedia.... ... ck_listing
Any other must listen songs I should look into? Or should I just get all of their albums and be done with it? (I am hesitant to get full albums of a band that's been around a long time because it's such a tall task to tackle them all)
Tackle 'em all, there's no rush.
