CD Review: R.E.M. 

Document (25th Anniversary Edition) (Capitol/I.R.S.)

R.E.M.'s commercial breakthrough from 1987 still sounds like a perfect mix of the band's indie spirit and the desire for something more (indeed – they jumped labels for their next album, collecting a hefty paycheck). The key tracks – "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)," "The One I Love" – are balanced by some of the group's most political songs like "Exhuming McCarthy." This two-CD reissue includes a live disc.
