REM? Those wankers? Yes them Very early REM was an irreducible thing of beauty you couldn't tell people about the great guitarist because Peter Buck was not one he didn't play solos you couldn't tell anyone about their deep and meaningful lyrics because what Michael Stipe was singing was barely English it didn't exist and you couldn't rave about their unusual instrumentation or song structures or great use of dynamics because prog this was

    PDF cloudunblockco ´ REM's Murmur PDF ¸ rem's epub, murmur kindle, REM's Murmur ePUBI love the 33 13 book series but because the authors have the freedom to analyze an album in any way they choose the books are of widely varying quality In this edition the author is kind enough to signpost his approach a brief history of the band leading up to this their first full length effort historical and artistic context and analysis of languageThe first two sections are great having read at least one full biography of REM I was afraid I would have to sit through a rehash of that information but the author acknowledges that this book didn't n

Based on what you think they are?? Dang Chutzpah2 I always hate when someone of authority like an author and not just some guy on the street analyzes a record and calls my favorite songs the weakest on the album the throwaway songs But I like them I guess tha

    PDF cloudunblockco ´ REM's Murmur PDF ¸ rem's epub, murmur kindle, REM's Murmur ePUBMurmur is not the best REM album nor is it my favorite REM album but because it was first Murmur may be the most REM y REM album The mysterious album cover the jangly guitar arpeggios the cryptic almost indecipherable lyrics the enigmatic image of the band themselves they’re all here right from the beginningJ Niimi divides his book into four unequal parts The first is pretty straightforward biography with a heavy duty nod towards audiophile geeks Most fans will already know about Stipe and Buck's initial meeting at a record store most probably won’t care about the digital delays of a Lexicon Model 200 “the Lamborghini of digital reverbs” or the different kinds of compressors used The second is a song by song dissection of the album that seems to show off a kind of obsessive ear Take this breakdown of “Moral Kiosk” “The chorus is in A and the song ends on a Dthe vocal line stops one note short on a B the sixth of a D chord making the last ch
