    Recorded in my hometown. I heard parts of it before it was even released. REM never should have left Charlotte to record. They had adopted an old Charlotte and southern style accent but they lost it. This was and is their best album. Just listen how their accent has changed. They don't even sound like the same band in later albums. We had bunches of bands like them here, in the south, back in the day. All gone now.
