R.E.M. – ‘Collapse Into Now’
How many times has the new REM album been hailed a return to form? Too many times is the answer. While each of their albums in the last decade and a half have had a number of songs that you can return to, this is their best collection probably since Automatic For The People. Unlike their last Accelerate, they do fast and slow. They also rope in Patti Smith for the final classic piece of REM noise. You’ll come back to the whole of this one time and again.
