    The best tribute to David Foster Wallace. The Eschaton is great!

    Peter Buck + Colin Meloy = awesome. I miss old REM.

    Pretty lively for a song about the end of the world as we know it. They feel fine!

    Maybe Peter Buck feels more free to play like his old self on other peoples' records than on his own? I love it.

    I'm so fucking tired of people complaining that one band's music is derivative of another's. Is there anything these days that doesn't sound like something else? Just enjoy the song. I'm with you, lesliedahlink. Who cares?

    Who cares if it's an R.E.M. rip-off? It's an awesome song.

    At least they took an early REM influence before they (REM) got too big. This could have been on Fables of the Reconstruction. I like it a lot

    Yes, blatant R.E.M. rip, which is why they HAD to invite Peter Buck to play on the track!

    (which is not a bad thing at all)

    This is a blatant, shameless rip-off of R.E.M.

    The R.E.M. songs it reminds me of are Seven Chinese Brothers and Talk About The Passion. A good collaboration.

    The band I fell in love with all those years ago is back. [2]

    the riff sounds like something from Reckoning, "Little America" I think

    I love Peter Bucks guitar on this. It's still a very distinctive Decemberists song though. And a great one at that.
