Michael Stipe solo

I bloody loved R.E.M. and I love Michael Stipe and his voice. Wonder if he might put out a full record. Michael Stipe / R.E.M. chat welcomed.

I bloody love/d REM too but in the past his solo or more dancey collaborations were really underwhelming iirc.
That being said he might have a really decent tome of tunes building up since REM finished fourteen years ago so fingers crossed.

FTFY

Haha well I just realised I completely made up that figure :upside_down_face:

Their last album was only eight years ago. Though I think Reveal was the last album of theirs I bothered with. Haven’t listened to anything later than Hi-fi for ages

Same here before I had a think!

i like Accelerate at the time but not sure how it would hold up now. i’m sure a few tracks probably still sound decent at least

It’s pretty good still.
If it was by a new hype band the press would have creamed themselves.
The REM listening club was great.

I worked it out, it was fourteen years since I saw them
So for me they split up fourteen years ago
Selfish of them not to have adhered to this

Where’s the HGWTR REM thread huh? HUH???

Funkhouser doesn’t do threads for guaranteed 5/5s.
