>Thus is the pattern for the night established. A couple of new songs, a couple of oldies and shiny happy old me putting in a prize winning performance in the dancing while sitting down world championships. … Everything else we don't know, though, is pretty much flawless, a raucous, breathtaking hybrid of the best bits from Reckoning and Monster.

michaelstipe_dublinI have no idea when this awesome material will show up on the new album, but I already know it's going to be my favorite R.E.M. album since 1995. W00!


P.S. Bootleg recordings of all 5 nights are available as torrents at (free account required).
