everybody here is from somewhere

As I was driving home from church choir practice tonight, I was listening to the radio. First they played a Maroon Five song, which was lame (despite any feelings I may have about Adam Levine), then they played "Another One Bites the Dust," which was pretty awesome - I hadn't heard it in years - and then! THEN! they played the new R.E.M. song! My first time hearing it. I like! The radio dude said the album is out April 1st, but you can buy it online next week. I kind of want the actual CD for this one, though.

i just got to watch the SNL clip, and ohmygoodness, i can't believe they went there. :)

the REM song sounds good . . . but they always sound good.

I also caught the new song on the radio, and I'm kind of disappointed! My reaction was "Huh, an amalgamation of every single recent R.E.M.ism in one song." It might grow on me, though. I'll buy the CD anyway - got to keep them in business!

I'm very much in the "I like it" camp. Spice fails to note, by the way, that she hated Automatic for the People on the first listen, so give her time. The new album is getting good reviews, so that's a good sign.

Believe it or not, I re-joined the fan club (*gasp*) on Friday. I thought there may be some advanced ticket sales for members.
