I think I've said this somewhere before, but New Adventures
is still my favorite album by them. That was, of course, the last album they recorded with Bill Berry. I really liked Up
as well. Very interesting ambient direction IMHO. I still think it holds up pretty well, but it's nowhere near as good as New Adventures
. Since then they seem to have been on a steady decline. Reveal
had a couple of great songs - "Imitation of Life" & "All the Way to Reno." Around the Sun
didn't do much for me at all. I think they need something to stimulate them again, and maybe bringing Berry back into the fold would help. (If he's willing to do it)
Right now I'm on an '80s R.E.M. kick. Murmer
, Life's Rich Pageant
, etc. "Fall on Me" is such a beautiful song.
And in the end...
