Progrography

R.E.M.
There was something revolutionary at work in "Radio Free Europe" that wasn't punk or rock. We'd later call it alternative rock. R.E.M. was one of the first and still the grandest proponent of alternative rock. They were American and anti-American, earthy but intellectual, unintelligible and profound. I lost interest with "Losing My Religion," but the early stuff (Murmur, Document) is essential.
