R.E.M. are one of those few bands who make any sort of challenge on U2's supremacy on the global scene, and any new R.E.M. album is greeted with much frenzy and much anticipated success. Produced by Pat McCarthy, the new album is said to reveal the boys from Athens, Georgia at the very peak of their powers.
