Live Your Life Filled With Joy and Thunder

R.E.M. Automatic for the PeopleFor about a week now I've been humming Sweetness Follows by R.E.M. in my head. Morbid, somewhat, but nonetheless, it's been there. Best remedy is to listen to the song - so I figured it was a good opportunity to revisit Automatic for the People, which was really a high-water mark for the band. In doing so, I was reminded that R.E.M. Live came out this week. I'm personally not a fan of live albums, but for those who are: here. You can read a review here and here. It's a bit heavy on Around the Sun so I'm even less interested.

Thus concludes my R.E.M. stream of consciousness.

UPDATE: And speaking of stream, go here to stream the live album in its entirety courtesy of Paste Magazine.
