Classic Albums R.E.M. - Automatic For The People



Features, Drive, The Sidewinder Sleep Tonight, Everybody Hurts.
 "Automatic For The People turns out to be both aptly unfathomable and just the job. It's about Life. Without embarrassment and via sundry dark metaphors, it enquires What's it all about, if anything? Big emotions, big ideas, and you believe them too, without feeling a fool. " Q.
"R.E.M. has never made music more gorgeous than Nightswimming and Find the River, the ballads that close Automatic for the People and sum up its twilit, soulful intensity. Everybody Hurts, the album's third masterpiece, finds the band gaining a startling emotional directness". Rolling Stone.
