Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 197/500!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Radio Free Europe" - Rated 389/500!


When this debut album was released in 1983, R.E.M. was considered out-of-sync and musically strange, yet appealing, and the rock world was turned on its ear. What in fact happened was this debut full-length release introduced the era of 'alternative' music. Mastered with The GAIN System. This ANADISQ 200 LP allows you to really hear Murmur for the first time!

"We wanted to have this kind of timeless record," guitarist Peter Buck said of R.E.M.'s debut, and this "technically limited" band (according to producer Don Dixon) did just that. Buck was a rock scholar who had worked in a record store; singer Michael Stipe unspooled his lyrics as if they constituted some new secret language. Murmur is full of ringing guitar and mystery. The lyrics and the melodies seem buried, almost subliminal, and even the hookiest songs, such as "Radio Free Europe," resist clarity. Murmur was a founding document of alternative rock, released just as Gen X was starting to go to college." - www.rollingstone.com

"'We hated it,' said Peter Buck of the sound on the first version of 'Europe,' on indie label Hib-Tone. 'It was mastered by a deaf man, apparently.' R.E.M. rerecorded it for Murmur, with a richer melody and tighter rhythm — 'like Motown,' Buck recalled. Michael Stipe mumbled his lyrics — a vague riff on U.S. cultural imperialism — because he hadn't finished writing them when it was time to record." - Rolling Stone
