R.E.M. – E-Bow The Letter (1996)

Just seen the news of R.E.M.’s break up.

Had always followed them and loved much of their stuff but, to me, quality had been begun to drop off in recent years.

A wonderful back catalogue though – Reckoning, The One I Love, It’s the End of the World, Losing My Religion, Nightswimming, What’s the Frequency Kenneth, etc. Some perfect pop music in there.

But wanted to hear this tonight. Typical languid strum, stream of consciousness lyrics, nice tune, Patti Smith on the backing vocals. Who knows what he’s on about? Who cares, I’m glad it exists

    This is a great song. REM were always best at their slowest: this, Nightswimming, Country Feedback etc. It’s possibly the only positive to come out of them not splitting up after Billy Berry’s aneurysm. Of course, they should have split once he quit. But better late than never.
