On Diffuser: 17 Years Ago — R.E.M. Lose Their Drummer But Still Move ‘Up’

rem upR.E.M.’s career breaks into three distinct periods:

  1. The I.R.S. years
  2. The early Warner years
  3. The period after Bill Berry left.

Up is the first album of the last period, and as such it is reviled by some and loved by others. Which are you? You can tell me in a comment after you read all about it on Diffuser.

  1. I have every album through ‘Monster’. I like ‘Automatic’ and ‘Monster’, but for reasons still unknown to me I simply lost interest and haven’t even heard ‘New Adventures’ and beyond. But I’ll take the IRS albums over the early Warners.
