yeppers, they are my fav band, have all the albums since Automatic, and all the mp3's post Automatic . Heck, even had my arteries clogged at Weaver D's (hard core REM fans know what I'm talkin' bout ). Hell I remember when michael stipe still had hair (and lots of it!). Guess I am showin' my age I love the new single "Leaving New York", its quite different from the Jangle-rock they produced during the early eighties. Any other Fans? Whatcha think about the new single?
