History Will Set Me Free

I'll admit it. I watch CBS Sunday Morning. And I'm not in my 70s, or 60s, or 50s, or 40s. I find it a nice way to start my Sunday. Today I was rewarded with a nice feature on R.E.M. featuring Micheal Stipe looking every bit like the elder indie statesman.

The new album Accelerate comes out Tuesday, though you've been able to preview the whole thing on iLike this past week if you're into the whole social networking thing. Reviews are positive and the album has inspired Spin to claim the band "R.E.BORN," and Rolling Stone calls it one of their best. Can't wait to spend quality iPod time with it come Tuesday.
