Tuesday Track of the Week: R.E.M.-Supernatural Superserious

April 8, 2008

Yes, it’s likely that you’ve already heard this one. It’s been all over the place, even plugged on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball (go White Sox). That’s because R.E.M., one of the most important American bands of the last quarter century, have come back to release their first album in four years, and to do so with a re-found passion. Supernatural Superserious-and the new album Accelerate in general-is a a far cry from the seminal college rock of early 80’s R.E.M. It’s supersized, ready-made for singalongs and stadiums. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t good: because, man, it’s good. This baby is full of exuberance, soul, energy, irresistible but never forced hooks, and a great example of how to smoothly transition into a bridge. Check it out:
