Review of R.E.M. – Green (25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (Warner Music Canada)

REMWhile their later albums for Warner Brothers would bring them even greater success, Green was still an important milestone in the career of R.E.M. Pop Song 89, Orange Crush and Stand would help expand upon the commercial acclaim that found its way to the band thanks to their 1987 hit The One I Love. This rather worthy reissue includes a 21-track live show from 1989 where the group’s unbridled energy pushes tracks like It’s The End of The World…, Exhuming McCarthey and more in exciting directions.
