Next cheapest £12.24. Back of the net!!

The follow-up to 2001's laid-back REVEAL, AROUND THE SUN finds R.E.M. mining a similar vein of dreamy, mellow rock. "Leaving New York" sets the tone with Peter Buck's chiming guitar and Michael Stipe's plaintive vocals at the fore, while "Electron Blue" continues the band's occasional forays into electronic territory with keyboard-driven atmospherics. Other standout tracks include the haunting "The Outsiders" (which features rapper Q-Tip, recalling OUT OF TIME's "Radio Song" with KRS-One in execution if not in tone) and the folky, defiant "Final Straw", a blatant condemnation of fear-instilling governmental policies.
Not as exploratory as other latter-day R.E.M. albums NEW ADVENTURES IN HI-FI (1996) and UP (1998), AROUND THE SUN occasionally echoes the ensemble's lauded AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE's laconic feel, though it doesn't quite match that record's gravitas. In any case, this outing displays the 24-year-old band in a surprisingly relaxed and comfortable mode, and who says that's a bad thing?
