    PDF J. Niimi · · REM's Murmur eBook í rem's pdf, murmur epub, REM's Murmur ePUBEven my friend Gig a man who knows about music than several other men has forgotten how great REM were on Chronic Town Murmur Reckoning Fables of the Reconstruction and Life's Rich Pageant It's like trying to tell someone about the ripsnorting rock and roll on the Rolling Stones' first two albums you're going to get funny looks Huh? REM? Those wankers? Yes them Very early REM was an irreducible thing of beauty you couldn't tell people about the great guitarist because Peter Buck was not one he didn't play solos you couldn't tell anyone about their deep and meaningful lyrics because what Michael Stipe was singing was barely English it didn't exist and you couldn't rave about their unusual instrumentation or song structures or great use of dynamics because prog this was not every song was 3 minutes 10 seconds there were fast ones and s

    PDF J. Niimi · · REM's Murmur eBook í rem's pdf, murmur epub, REM's Murmur ePUBI love the 33 13 book series but because the authors have the freedom to analyze an album in any way they choose the books are of widely varying uality In this edition the author is kind enough to signpost his approach a brief history of the band leading up to this their first full length effort; historical and artistic context; and analysis of languageThe first two sections are great having read at least one full biography of REM I was afraid I would have to sit through a rehash of that information but the author acknowledges that this book didn't need all that So the telling of the formation of the band and their writing touring and recording experiences pre Murmur are limited to what is necessary to put the album in context and does a

    PDF J. Niimi · · REM's Murmur eBook í rem's pdf, murmur epub, REM's Murmur ePUBA lovely and well paced look at a little gold nugget of an album from a fan who discovered it on tape in a time of Howard Jones and Thompson Twins neon spiky haired 80's pop Of course Murmur sounded nothing like those guys and contained absolute canyons of depth and emotion but obscured by many things including reverb wilfully odd Michael Stipe and his lyrics with no obvious nouns or verbs or protagonists or plots just hints which seem to click into your memoryYou can tell I have a soft spot for this record and this book and it's a hard act to follow in the 33 13 series In fact it was followed for me by the Stone Roses book and that was a completely different beastJustin Niimi is a member of Ashtray Boy who are an absolutely criminally overlooked band and if you ever see a copy of their record The Honeymoon Suit
