R.E.M. Accelerate 180g 45rpm 2LP & CD
TAS Rated 3.5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics in the June/July 2008 Issue of TAS! Half-Speed Mastered by Stan Ricker!
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the July 2008 Issue of Stereophile!
Accelerate, the first studio album in four years from R.E.M., finds modern
rock's most acclaimed band returning to the stripped-down, guitar-driven power
that first enraptured fans. Helmed by the band and, for the first time, Jacknife
Lee puts the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group once again firmly behind the
wheel of alternative rock, a genre R.E.M. helped invent.
"...fans should rejoice over Accerlerate, the group's first album since 1995 that's worth repeated spins... Accelerate gets R.E.M. back to respectability - and then some." - Bob Gendron, The Absolute Sound June/July 2008
