    Eponymous
    1988's Eponymous is a document testifying to the astounding strength of their formative I.R.S. years. Eponymous reinforces the notion that the inchoate R.E.M. was a rare and brilliant gem of a group.

    It is difficult to argue with the innovation and brilliance that REM displays on this album. There is not a bad song to be heard, and some are downright incredible. With songs like Talk About the Passion, Laughing, Sitting Still, and the shimmering Shaking Through, basic rock'n'roll music doesn't get much better than this.

    Matching their ugliest album cover with some of their most sublime music, Out of Time inaugurates the finest phase of R.E.M.'s work.

    The 1984 follow-up to R.E.M.'s brilliantly murky debut features Michael Stipe's ambiguous moan, drummer Bill Berry's strong backbeat, and guitarist Peter Buck's endless wave of catchy, jangling riffs.

    This album, whilst far from catapulting them into mega-stardom, gave REM their first big hits. The first is 'The One I Love': this is a classic love song which is quite painful and hurt inside. The other is the polar opposite 'It's The End of the World As We Know It'.

    Reveal
    Reveal is the sound of a band that's beyond feeling the need to change or to prove themselves to each new generation, but retains its passion. Twenty years after "Radio Free Europe," they're still jiggy as year-old pups.

    R.E.M. pushed the jangle out of the picture with Monster, replacing it with reverberating snaps, crackles, and pops. An album that wraps itself to '70s glam finery while reaching out to the flannel-clad post-Nirvana throngs, it largely succeeds at demonstrating that these Georgians still know how to rock.

    Lifes Rich Pageant
    Within the first few seconds of "Begin the Begin" you know something is different about this album than any R.E.M. album before it. The sound is so much cleaner, Michael Stipe can sing coherently, and the band can play gritty rock and roll.

    This is very much a transitional album, its feel somewhere between the chamber-folk sweep of Out of Time and Automatic for the People and the distortion-pedal party that raged on Monster.
