I Know This is Changing Me (Music Review)
First Impression Music Review
R.E.M - Collapse Into NowB
Release Date: March 8, 2011
This one is a grower. I've listened to it a dozen times and I like it more with each spin. It's probably their best album since 1996's New Adventures in Hi-Fi.
"Mine smells like honey" and "Überlin" grabbed me immediately (they're also the first two singles from the album), other tracks were slightly more challenging but they eventually won me over. Special guests include Eddie Vedder, Patti Smith, Peaches, Lenny Kaye and Joel Gibb.
Favorite Tracks - Mine smells like honey, "Überlin", "That someone is you", "Blue"
