Details

[Edit]

After the success of their 1983 debut album Murmur, R.E.M. quickly assembled its follow-up, 1984’s Reckoning, a tight concise slab of ‘60s-influenced jangle pop heightened by the surging immediacy of its singles, “So. Central Rain” and “(Don’t Go Back To) Rockville.” Singer Michael Stipe continues his hypnotic mumble, adding a layer of mystery and intrigue to enigmatic songs such as “7 Chinese Bros.” and “Pretty Persuasion” that are further blurred by the careful, elliptical guitar arpeggios of Peter Buck and the supportive harmonies from bassist Mike Mills. The 2009 Deluxe Edition includes a live concert taped at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago on July 7, 1984 and broadcast on WXRT in Chicago. It features eight cuts from Reckoning and past glories such as “Gardening at Night” and “Radio Free Europe” as well as peeks at their future albums with “Driver 8” and “Hyena.” For a band noted for their quiet, pastoral textures and reflective tempos, the concert presents a much sharper and aggressive R.E.M., performing with a punkish intensity that sheds much of their folk-rock roots without losing their melodic grace.
