Reckoning was the first R.E.M. album I bought, after seeing them sing "So. Central Rain" on Late Night with David Letterman. I loved it then and still cherish it now. Though not as good as Murmur, most of the tracks hold up surprisingly well compared to their first album. Highlights include the above mentioned track, "Harborcoat," "7 Chinese Brothers," and the country-influenced "Don't Go Back to Rockville." A must.

Though largely forgotten -- or completely unknown by R.E.M.'s recent fans -- "Reckoning" stands out as a masterpiece. These songs are pure, powerful and layered with emotions. Is there a more sorrowful song than "So. Central Rain" anywhere in the modern musical lexicon? And "(Don't Go back To) Rockville" is a primer in straight-forward songwriting. No CD library should be without this one.

Their early sound always provides a contrast when you're used to hearing their later works. It's a shame you don't get to hear any of these songs on the radio, like their big hits, but then they weren't even on the radio when this album was made! (Apart form college radio, of course!)
The classic 'Harborcoat' is one of their best ever songs. But elsewhere on this album there lies an even bigger gem. 'Don't go back to Rockville' has the band in full country twang and shows the versatility of the group, which we are now really beginning to see with their new album 'Reveal'.
A great choice for any REM fan who thinks he or she needs a slight change from listening to 'Out of Time' or 'Automatic for the people' over and over again.
