THE CHEESE : The album is a bit all over the place, it’s fairly inconsistent and I’m not surprised there is almost an even number of songs in each category.  Yet, somehow, it’s a good listen from start to finish.  It’s a sentimental favourite of mine because it was the album that introduced me to the band. 

I’m not a big fan of R.E.M’s b-sides or ‘rare’ material.  It seems to me that the generally speaking band’s best songs found their way onto an album one way or another.  ‘Fretless’ is a song from this era that is an exception. I’m not sure why that track didn’t make the cut, it should be on here.
