Life's Rich Pageant
R.E.M. took a big step toward the stadiums with this 1986 LP, their biggest success to date (#21 pop). The beats and riffs got bigger and bolder here, right from track one (Begin the Begin) through These Days; Just a Touch; Hyena and their unforgettable rendition of Superman, while the hit Fall on Me and Cuyahoga offered some of Michael Stipe’s most intoxicating vocals yet. This 25th-anniversary reissue adds 19 unreleased Athens demos from ’86 plus a booklet, poster and postcards in a sweet flip-top box!
