For those that come here that might not have read my comments, I did write a post about R.E.M. on my other site.
I do want to thank the band for 31 years, and for 25+ years I have been a fan of.
I would also let those know that this break-up has seen an increase of activity at Dime with both demos/rough mixes from Murmur (Stephen Hague demo included) as well as a cleaner copy of Out of Time Demos. I would encourage all fans to check them out when they have a chance.
