R.E.M. Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

R.E.M.
Automatic For The People (25th Anniversary Edition)

The original CD of this is currently getting bleached by the unseasonal sun on the dash of my Honda Civic. It looks great up there  - it's commercial enough to show passers by that I'm not the indie obscurist I'm sometimes unfairly painted out to be, but also it's REM's most poetic and dark album that maybe once the dust settles will be see...view item »

R.E.M.
MTV Unplugged 1991

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'. These two performances show a stripped back, completely acoustic incarnation of an alt rock band that was often murky with their guitars and full o...view item »

R.E.M.
Dead Letter Office

R.E.M. in the early days were a great B sides band. They always ensured that each single came with a gaggle of excellent additional tracks. Dead Letter Office does the decent thing and round these up on one collection. From the sublime (their take on Pylon's 'Crazy') to ridiculous (laugh-a-long versions...view item »

R.E.M.
Out Of Time - 25th Anniversary Edition

General consensus always seems to be that R.E.M's worst song is 'Shiny Happy People' but for me it has always been 'Radio Song'. A desperate hybrid of rap and rock and novelty pop that should have been strangled at birth. What a shame that this abomination kicks off this otherwise splendid record. The only positive about it opening up is that yo...view item »

R.E.M.
Eponymous

It is indeed a compilation as Jack notes in his review below and perhaps doesn't flow as well as their albums but this was my introduction to R.E.M when I was nobbut a youth and I enjoyed following their trajectory from oddball pastoral post punk janglers on the opening 'Radio Free Europe' to the closing chart-ready dash of 'It's the End of the ...view item »

R.E.M.
Life's Rich Pageant

Right, people listen up. R.E.M were fucking amazing. Let's just take what they did in the '80s on it's own and we have an incredible body of work. 'Lifes Rich Pageant' was the moment they went from pastoral mumblers to a potential stadium rock band and hits the sweet spot just right. The album has so many highlights that it's hard to kno...view item »

MTV Unplugged 2001

R.E.M. stepped up to perform on MTV Unplugged twice: once in 1991, coinciding with the release of their first alt country record 'Out of Time', and again ten years later, around the time of 'Reveal'.

R.E.M.
Green

The release of Green: 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition recognizes and celebrates the achievements of the band’s critically acclaimed sixth full studio album. Available in either a 180g vinyl re-mastered LP, or a re-mastered deluxe edition 2CD including poster and postcards, this release is simply a must have for all R.E....view item »

R.E.M.
Murmur

Murmur is the classic debut album. Sounding somewhat like the Byrds playing underwater with a singer who couldn't be bothered opening his mouth, the young Athens four piece proved that guitar music in the early '80s hadn't completely died a death. It's mysterious, catchy and completely unique. No record collection shoul...view item »

R.E.M.
Supernatural Superserious

What a great song! All the elements of a classic REM record are here: a catchy hook, a spirited vocal from Michael Stipe, it has a great guitar riff, the harmonies between Michael Stipe and Mike Mills are present, and it has a stronger sound that is somewhat lacking with R.E.M.'s recent releases. This song sounds like a mix from something out of...view item »
