R.E.M. is firing on all cylinders with the new CD ‘Accelerate’

Boston Globe – “It’s been a difficult decade for R.E.M., creatively and personally, and everyone knows it. Peter Buck, the band’s guitarist, who sat down to talk earlier in a dressing room, says that if any of them had been thinking rationally they would have scrapped “Around the Sun” and started over again. Stipe begs to differ.”
