REM - Out Of Time - 1991
All in all, it's a great album. It's not SUPER, just great. I could lose Radio Song and Low, and although I like Kate, I could've done without Shiny Happy People (although I'm a sucker for pop-hooks, this one was too easy and overplayed.) My favorite tracks of the album were Near Wild Heaven and Half A World Away. Great stuff. Losing My Religion was a great song, not one of my favorites. Had a great melody and very strong lyrics and the video was awesome. But it was way overplayed and it grew tiring. I still like it, just heard it way too many times. (I said great in this period four times if you don't count this one...)
All the b-sides and fan club tracks but I left off the remixes. They would've pushed the CD limit and none of them were any good anyway. As for the cover, just a straight out duplicate of the original. The font I used, though, looks a little screwy. The kerning in the type is off and makes the spacing a little awkward.
Thanks, all for your messages on Friday. My boss knows, and he wasn't upset. He's letting me work my final two weeks (for now) and the other sales people have already started cannibalizing my accounts. That's fine, who cares. I'm OUT! Only troubling point is that I've already turned in my notice and my new job still hasn't gotten my piss-test back yet. I KNOW that it's clean, but I always like to have everything squared before I make a move. Always afraid of the "what if" scenario.
Lastly, I'm going to do some re-upping right now, in case you needed something. If I miss anything, let me know.
