R.E.M. Get Back Together! J/K. But They Are Releasing Another Greatest Hits.
R.E.M. is no more, but the insanely influential band still has a few things left to share with us. As Consequence Of Sound points out, R.E.M. will release a new greatest-hits compilation called Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982–2011 on 11/15, via Warner Bros. They’ve already released two such collections, Eponymous and In Time: The Best Of R.E.M., but this one has a couple of crucial differences. For one thing, the new one will span the group’s entire career. For another, this one will feature songs that the band finished after releasing their final album, this year’s Collapse Into Now. No tracklist reveal yet, but that shouldn’t stop us from arguing about it! Which songs do you guys think should make the cut? And which ones should be excluded entirely?
