This 25th anniversary remaster has a fantastic sound. Green just may be R.E.M.'s best album, with pop songs mixed with folk songs, and a harder edge to it than their previous material. Also comes with a live album, which is a great soundboard recording from 1989 featuring songs that spanned R.E.M.'s catalog at the time, as well as a couple of new songs that would be featured on their next album, the timeless Automatic for the People. There is also a poster of the band that comes with the box as well. Good value if you are a die-hard R.E.M. fan like myself.
