I’ve got to admit, I’ve never been a big fan of indie stalwarts R.E.M. I’m not too sure why this is, whether I find them a little bit preachy or maybe a bit old for the music scene, ed hardy shopbut when Other Clothing joyfully threw this cd onto my desk and told me to review it, I wasn’t looking forward to it.
I’ve got to admit that Accelerate wasn’t that bad though. It was extremely rocky and a little less experimental than a lot of their previous stuff. My favourite tracks were the summery sounding Supernatural Superserious, the frantic ed hardy clothingI’m Gonna DJ and the ghostly sounding Sing for the Submarine.
I couldn’t pick any instant classics off this album which was a bit of a pity, but the album as a whole still worked really well. Even lager drinking, Northern, music reviewing girls can be wrong from time to time you know!
