R.E.M Accelerate

Its April Fools day but I don't have any fake-out stories for you. I did get the new REM album that came out today. Finally an R.E.M album that sounds like R.E.M. As much as I love their last three releases Up, Reveal, and Around the Sun there has been something missing. As Stereogum, reports in a recent review the energy that continues to be present in their live performances has returned to the album format. These new songs fit well with my favorite era of R.E.M.-Automatic for the People, Monster, and New Adventures in Hi-Fi.
