Come on! Nobody's voted on this yet?! This thread should be 15 pages long by now. You people should be ashamed of yourselves! This is quite possibly one of R.E.M.'s greatest albums. The song "Imitation of Life" was a minor radio hit in the US in 2001. This album is absolutely killer in every way. My favorite R.E.M. album hands down. The mix is INCREDIBLE, the songwriting is great, the vocals are awesome, and the best part...this album was actually recorded on analog equipment! I'd give it a 25 if I could, but since I can't, I'll settle for 10.
Good grief, along with most of the other R.E.M. DVD-As, I have just let this one sit unplayed for years. An underrated album, very nice surround mix, and good fidelity. I guess I need to dig deeper and play some of the other R.E.M. DVD-As. I have given it a 10, it is actually a 9.5 but will round up rather than down this time.
Another exemplary 5.1 mix of an R.E.M. gem. A delightfully chilled and laid back long player made all the more special by a brilliantly handled mix. Something about R.E.M.'s work certainly lends itself to multi-channel.
A winner, IMO. Found this, for peanuts, along with Up, at a local store. Glad I picked them up.
There is one for around $7 on Amazon. Solid songs, if a bit somber quite a lot of the time. Great mix and sonics.
