2011 album from the veteran Alt-Rock band. For Collapse Into Now, R.E.M. re-teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer Jacknife Lee, who produced the band's acclaimed previous album Accelerate. R.E.M. and Lee recorded the album in New Orleans at the Music Shed and in Berlin at the famed Hansa Studios, where several legendary albums, including David Bowie's Heroes, U2's Achtung Baby, and Iggy Pop's Lust for Life, were made. Additional recording and mixing was done at the venerable Blackbird Studio in Nashville. The band has also revealed that Collapse Into Now features some very special guests: Patti Smith, guitarist Lenny Kaye, Peaches, Eddie Vedder, and The Hidden Cameras frontman Joel Gibb.

It appears that the digital deluxe version is just a few live tracks, which feels rather lame. I've not seen any physical deluxe version yet, and I would have expected to this close to the release date.

I picked this album up for $9.99 at a local Best Buy, along with a vinyl copy of Abbey Road (which made someone's review comparing the two seem almost ironic!). I took them straight home to listen to. Once I started listening to this new REM, I thought, "Alright, good opening track..."... Read More

I'm sure they'll drop the price before it is actually released.
