As has been said, what a way to go out! R.E.M. was and is one of the greatest rock bands of all-time. Through their college rock days, to their mainstream days, into their much overlooked trio years, this band has been through it all and overcome many obstacles to achieve the international status they now have. And what a song to cap their careers with; actually, in my opinion, one of their all-time best, though it certainly won't be viewed that way by many. It is haunting, in a good way. I wish all these guys the best going forward, and they will always be remembered as one of the all-time greats.
