R.E.M. 1984

The imposter in this week’s pack, for there was no way I was listening to R.E.M. in real time in 1984. Knee high to a grasshopper, I was regrettably unaware of the band’s comings and goings in Athens and Charlotte. ‘So. Central Rain (I’m Sorry)’ was the first single off the band’s sophomore album Reckoning. Like its highly acclaimed predecessor, Murmur, the album continued the group’s journey to the alt rock pantheon. A decade later, they would be the biggest rock band on the planet. Have a great weekend.
