I won’t take up too much of your time today, other than to say that if you want to spend money on any 2021 re-release, then you could do a lot worse than pick up the 25th Anniversary edition of New Adventures in Hi-Fi.

It’s still my favourite of all the R.E.M. albums and one that I’ve long coveted on vinyl, looking on in disbelief at the prices being asked on the second-hand market.

The reissued version has been remastered and issued as a double album on180-gram vinyl.  The quality is astounding, and there are places all over the album where my ears picked up things that I hadn’t previously noticed. I’m actually terrified to play it all that often, in case I do something stupid or clumsy that ends up adding some sort of imperfection to this piece of art.
