"Document" was R.E.M.'s breakthrough album after half a decade of languishing in semi-obscurity on the college-rock circuit. This album features the hits "The One I Love," "It's the End of the World as we Know it (And I Feel Fine)," and "Finest Worksong".
R.E.M.'s fifth studio album, Document was originally released in 1987 a few months after their rarities collection appeared. This was the last album of new material by the band released on the I.R.S. Records label, and marked the first album on which the band worked with producer Scott Litt.
"R.E.M. were trying something new with each new album in the Eighties, but this straight-ahead rock move was the one that made them mainstream stars. "The One I Love" and "Finest Worksong" were hits, but the best-loved fan favorite is the manic "It's the End of the World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)." - www.rollingstone.com
