iTunes Music Review - Life's Rich Pageant (4 out of 5)
- Reviewed by Dave Hamilton
In the long series of R.E.M.'s evolution, this album (finally?) showcases their ability to capture on tape what had been happening in the live for years: heartfelt, sweat-filled performances that just ooze a rock and roll edge. After hearing this album, you can understand why college students across the land packed wall-to-wall into tiny clubs to check out these 4 guys. Of course, after this album, things began to pick up steam, and, well, you know the rest! - Dave Hamilton
