Released soon after Out Of Time it shows the band on a creative roll with no shortage of original ideas. Bold songs such as 'Drive' and 'Everybody Hurts' demonstrated that the band were not reluctant to experiment, while the Karl Denver opening on 'The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite' and Stipe's magnificent hair-lip Elvis on 'Man On The Moon' were as good as anything they have recorded. Even with the departure of Bill Berry R.E.M. are still very much alive, but it would be asking a lot to expect any future album to match this.

R.E.M. - Document (CD) - 1998
In GOOD condition - small number of light marks on the disc [play unaffected].
R.E.M.: Michael Stipe (vocals); Peter Buck (guitar); Mike Mills (bass, keyboards, background vocals); Bill Berry (drums).Additional personnel: Steve Berlin (horns); Carl Marsh (synthesizer).Recorded at Sound Emporium, Nashville, Tennessee.R.E.M's later albums have sold by the container load, but they had to make albums like this to build a fan-base that brought them to notice. A number of critics place this record as their best. The band do sound as though they are having to work to be heard; there is significant energy in 'Finest Worksong' and their Byrdslike 'Welcome To The Occupation'. It has been some time since Michael Stipe had as many words to say as he did in 'It's The End Of The World As We Know It', and 'The One I Love' has to be one of their best songs of all time.

MANIC STREET PREACHERS - Everything Must Go (CD) - 2001
In GOOD condition - a couple of light marks on the disc [play unaffected].
Manic Street Preachers: James Dean Bradfield (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano); Sean Moore (trumpet, drums, percussion, background vocals); Nicky Wire (bass, background vocals).Additional personnel includes: John Green (Hammond B-3 organ, keyboards).Recorded at Chateau De La Rouge Motte, France. The cathartic album title perfectly reflected not only its contents but the band itself: following the traumatic breakdown and disappearance of Richey Edwards, the other Manics were left to pick up the pieces--it was an extraordinary and unexpected recovery. Perhaps most striking was their new sober image--the make-up, military garb and much of the bravado were gone--and their characteristic disaffection seemed more pertinent and controlled. Despite losing a member, the band had discovered a new voice, delivering a collection of powerful and socially aware songs. Poignantly, Edwards' lyrics graced songs including "Kevin Carter" and "Small Black Flowers . . . ," all delivered in James Dean Bradfield's emotional tones.
