Most under-rated R.E.M. album, besides being unique in the fact of being recorded while soundchecking on the road, it showcases that there's more to them than 'Everybody Hurts'. Even if you don't listen to the full album, listen to 'Leave' and 'So Fast So Numb'. Great songs.

(P.S. Sorry for this review being so short)

Description: New Adventures, despite its studiocentric title, is a snapshots-from-the-road record in the tradition of Neil Young's Time Fades Away and Jackson Browne's Running on Empty. Like them, it captures a where-am-I-and-why ambience, even with its concert and sound-check material reworked in post-tour sessions. This is very much a transitional album, its feel somewhere between the chamber-folk sweep of Out of Time and Automatic for the People and the distortion-pedal party that raged on Monster. It's the work of a band pretty near its peak consolidating familiar sounds and styles while tinkering with the edges. --Rickey Wright ... (more)
