R.E.M. Live CD/DVD

October 16 will see the release of R.E.M.'s first ever live CD/DVD in the course of a career that has spanned 27 remarkable years. The dual package, titled R.E.M. LIVE features 22 songs from the group's memorable performance at the Point Theatre in Dublin on February 27, 2005. R.E.M. LIVE was filmed by acclaimed director Blue Leach (Depeche Mode, Snow Patrol) who accompanied R.E.M. on their 116-date tour into 33 countries in 2005. Just two years earlier, Leach's deft camera work and artistic video mix during R.E.M.'s Manchester Move Festival performance made a strong impression on the band. Here, Leach skillfully brings together his signature techniques to capture R.E.M. doing what they do best at one of the most celebrated venues on their 2005 worldwide tour.

R.E.M. LIVE features songs spanning the band's numerous studio albums, including rare performances of "I Took Your Name" (from 1994's Monster) and "Ascent of Man" from the band's most recent studio album (2004's Around The Sun), as well as the singles "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville," (featuring Mike Mills on vocals) from 1984's Reckoning, "The Great Beyond" from the Man On The Moon soundtrack, "Imitation of Life" from 2001's Reveal, and the previously unreleased crowd-pleaser and encore rave-up "I'm Gonna DJ."

The track listing for R.E.M. Live is as follows:
I Took Your Name
So Fast, So Numb
Boy In The Well
Everybody Hurts

Why criticize Jambase for reporting on whats happening in the music world? Blame your favorite bands if there aren't enough stories coming from their camps.

Let me guess Nible, you're one of those peops that only listens to jambands and are completely oblivious to any other music being made. One word comes to mind - ignorance. I for one grew up on bands like REM, in fact the first album that i ever bought was Murmur. I love Panic, STS9, Umphs, Biscuits, etc.... but if I only listened to jambands everyday, I'd probably shoot myself.

This is the weakest REM setlist I've ever seen. If I went to their show and they played this crap, I'd ask for a refund....

This is the weakest REM setlist I've ever seen.

You can't judge a book by its cover. Were you at the show?

I must have struck a nerve. It is good to see some spark in these people. One thing you cannot do on these forums is assume anything. I believe that there was a comment that you grew up on bands like this. So, did I, that puts us about the same age.

No, I do not just listen to jambands. My record collection has everything from Big Smith to Jeff Beck to Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. I guess I used to look at JamBase as a place where I could get all the news from off the mainstream or beaten path. I love that the big four have harbored in this new genre. If you do not know who the big four is, hand off your mouse to give me a thumbs down.

For those of you who are new to this forum, I have never received a negative score before and have always had friends to comment positively on my comments. Therefore, I am obviously out of touch with this monster and need to creep back into the shadows again to find the next JamBase. Peace, and I hope that you can see the difference. By the way, nice upgrade on the site. Very modern and mainstream, kudos.

REM were a great band who are WAY past their sell by date. 8 really solid albums between '83 and '94, then nothing but stinkers. 5 albums over the last 13 years that have really sucked.
