Accelerate: Musical Greatness Streams Now
Thanks to the oh so lovely Whitney at USA Today's Pop Candy, I know that R.E.M.'s new album (due out April 1) is streaming for free at iLike.com until March 26. Accelerate sounds very, very awesome. The goosebumps on my arms are proof of that. It's world's beyond anything I've heard from them since New Adventures in Hi-Fi and immediately restores my trust in them as the creative force they always used to be. (I almost gave up on them after Monster.)
Accelerate streams here.
(Much to the chagrin of my lovely wife, I may go with the Michael Stipe haircut on the day of the record's release.)
