The End of the Band as We Know It

I was a huge REM fan back in the day – loving even that album (1998’s Up) that everyone else thought was terrible.  Since then, though, their output has felt less and less relevant.  Some great tunes, to be sure, but nothing that spoke to me the way they did through Automatic for the People or Life’s Rich Pageant.

So it was with a smile, rather than silent weeping, that I listened to this NPR reporter break the news:
