On my turntable: R.E.M. - Fables of the Reconstuction
This one's for Jan. I finally purchased Fables! I've never felt the need to own this album, but I saw a sealed copy of it yesterday for $5 and figured it's time. Fables of the Reconstruction (1985), or Reconstruction of the Fables as some fans (incorrectly) call it, harkens back to a time when Michael Stipe sang lyrics that only drunken college kids understood. Case in point: a little number called "Kohoutek". As I type this I'm only on song #4 ("Life and How to Live It") so I don't yet have an opinion of the full album, but so far it's a fun listen.
