USA, 1986, jangle pop / alternative rock

R.E.M.Lifes Rich Pageant

“Fall on Me” is the clear highlight, what with its rich, layered vocals, sung with Mills’ purposely emotionless vocals offsetting Stipe’s passion. “Underneath the Bunker” is a short but welcome left turn away from the jangle jangle of the pop, adding a bit more spice and swagger at the end of dinner. And supper wraps up with a tune that sounds like a 60s pop throwback.
