I never had the Chronic Town EP so this was my introduction to Athens' finest. Strange to think that they were thought of as America's Smiths by many at the time - intricate jangly guitar pop, although Buck has said that he's not as good technically as Johnny Marr. It's a great album and really diverse - New Wave sounding Radio Free Europe, Byrdsian Talk About the Passion, dreamy Perfect Circle, power pop Sitting Still. At the time in 1983 REM was a bit of a secret - an alternative band at a time when you expected such bands to stay out of the mainstream. The first six albums came out at a rate of almost one a year, which is incredibly productive. By the time of Green in 1988 they were on Warners and about to go stratospheric. I saw them a bunch of times on that tour when Michael Stipe was hitting his enigmatic peak, all of which had been hinted at on this album. Even the cover is a headscratcher. #vinyl #fromthegarage #IRSrecords #WarnerBros #REM #Stipe #Buck #Americana #alterativemusic #80sindie #collegerock
