BEST OF '08: R.E.M.'s ACCELERATE
I've written quite a bit about R.E.M.'s Accelerate. I think it is a great "comeback" album by a band I hated admitting I was writing off. I just couldn't get into any of their albums since Bill Berry left the band. Sure, there were songs here and there, but I couldn't get into a full album - not even close. I hope they have more albums like this in them, and I hope U2's No Line On The Horizon is as good. It's been a long time since I've put R.E.M.'s new releases in the same league as U2's (I love all of U2's albums).
