REM 1st Album + bonus stuffOctober 15, 2007
Many of the songs from this are outtakes and things that REM did back in their early days. For instance "Voice of Harold" uses the music from 7 Chinese Bros (from another REM album) and "Toys in the Attic" is a cover from the original Aerosmith song. The last 5 tracks are from the very first REM album, Chronic Town. The lyrics aren't very complex compared to those on later albums, but understandably, the members were very young aa lot less seasoned. The melodies are still there (a good thing). Though the group sounds much different today I'd tell anyone to pick this album up, especially if you have a desire to know where R.E.M. has been.
I would recommend this to a friend
