In the first giveaway of its kind by a British newspaper, The Times is offering you a complete R.E.M. album on iTunes. Simply use your iTunes card from The Magazine on Saturday and be the first to own five songs from their new live album, plus five R.E.M. classics including Losing My Religion and Man on the Moon.
The five live songs are from their unreleased album, Live at the Olympia, recorded during five nights of "working rehearsals" in Dublin. From this unique experiment was born the Accelerate album, but now you can hear early versions of some of those tracks, ahead of Live at the Olympia's release on October 26.
Add something special to your music collection. Don't miss your iTunes card in The Times this Saturday.
Plus, visit timesonline.co.uk/rem to hear Michael Stipe and Peter Buck talk about the inspiration behind each track.

That was taken from the e-mail they sent me.
I guess technically it's not free as they state, but not a bad deal if you buy the paper anyway or buy it for the album.

I personally don't buy the paper or are a huge fan of the group but thought it might be of some interest to some of you :)
#2
Good stuff if it's true Hong Kong!
#3
I presume it is as the times sent me an e-mail about it?
#4
"The five live songs are from their unreleased album" ... so it's not a full album ... and you need to buy the Sunday Times, so like you said the tracks you are getting aren't free either.
#5
As has already been posted ....

You’ll find a special iTunes card inside The Times Magazine on Saturday, October 10. Click the link below and use your code to be among the first to own five songs from the new R.E.M. live album, plus five classics including Losing My Religion and Man on the Moon

Yeah, the price of the paper should be shown on the deal and it is NOT a complete R.E.M. album either, it's 5 songs from a live album (not the entire album!) plus some classics. Misleading marketing spin, as usual.

5 + 5 = 10 tracks simple maths. I guess too hard for some people to add up. 10 tracks no matter what they are is considered an album or special edition. If like me I can get a free copy from work it is a freebie

10 tracks from effectively two albums does not make a complete album.

I don't think many people will be able to get a completely free copy, so that is a tad unfair to suggest it is a free deal for that reason.

Also, ten tracks do not necessarily make up an album, especially considering half of the tracks are taken from one album.

This was advertised on TV on Wednesday night. :)

I wondered if the card could be used for other tracks but guess not. Shame. Good deal for REM fans though.
#11
Whatever way you slice it or dice it, it is NOT a full album. Totally misleading.
#12
For God's sake, stop the carping. Its enough to make people stop posting deals. H&R added. Thanks Op.
#13
I quite liked this band up until the Green album, but they changed for the sake of maximum popularity and since then they sort of make my toes curl with their twangy mid-west nondescript bland rock style, and right on political correctness.
#14
Huge fan here so good deal for me, cheers

For god's sake get a life. The OP said it was free when BUYING the newspaper. As the newspaper doesn't come with something like this every day it's free innit !!
If Heinz offer you 33% extra beans free do you go into the shop and only ask for the free ones - on reflection you probably do.
But before you go and ask for the free beans please go for a spelling lesson.

The OP said 'In the first giveaway of its kind by a British newspaper, The Times is offering you a complete R.E.M. album on iTunes.'

None of us are saying it's a bad deal to get free tracks when buying the newspaper, but it is misleading to say it's a complete R.E.M. album as it's not a complete album in any sense.
#22
Also, the price of the newspaper should be on the deal - since you have to buy the paper to get the "free" "album".
#23
I have a code if anyone wants it, just message me & the first person I receive a message from can have the download code for it, as I don't use iTunes.
#24
is it a full album?



only joking....some people love to put pants into pedantic

lol
#25
Ok, so I have the songs in iTunes - but how do I get them out of it? Or are they licensed for use in iTunes only? BTW, it is a pain to take this offer: you have to download iTunes, install it (installing Linux is faster...), than register, and download the songs. Not exactly a straight forward process, me thinks.

well said.... 5 tracks from REM with others in the pipeline is not a bad deal no matter how you look at it. % tracks for a £1 and a free paper or 5 free tracks with the a newspaper!

Keep on posting!

It's a bit hard when you're away for a long weekend for your birthday enjoying yourself!!!!
Sorry i've got a life and not on here at you'r call 24/7!!

Lol @ some of these comments on here.
Some of you people need to get a life!
If you don't like the deal, don't make use of it .... simple as.

Glad to see the vast majority of you have common sense :thumbsup:
