Murmur is the debut album by the American alternative rock band R.E.M., released in 1983 on I.R.S. Records. Murmur drew critical acclaim upon its release for its sound, defined by singer Michael Stipe's cryptic lyrics, guitarist Peter Buck's jangly guitar style, and bassist's Mike Mills' melodic basslines.

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"A great American musical journey begins Nailing R.E.M.’s debut was hardly a breeze — during initial sessions, they attempted no fewer than 40 takes of “Catapult” — but they eventually pulled off a peerless meeting of intelligence and power. It marked the point at which the punk legacy made peace with rock history, and a new U.S. folk music was born. Standout tracks: “Radio Free Europe,” “Talk About the Passion”"

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"Embracing the Byrds’ jangle until it became as blurry as the album’s cover and aping Patti Smith’s poetic punk vision, R.E.M.’s impossibly enigmatic debut effectively spawned college rock. While remaining of its time, it has aged impressively well. Standout track: “Radio Free Europe”"
