When the three active members of R.E.M decided to disband in 2011, they released a long overdue collection tying both their IRS and Warner Bros. years together. You can hear their style change almost as soon as they went to the major label. To be fair, no one should have expected them to stand pat. Now, over 2 CDs and 40 songs, the band's evolution from jangle guitar rock on Disc 1 to a sort of art pop and then back to a more basic sound on Disc 2 is clear. We can also sum up the members' contributions. Michael Stipe was the enigmatic vocalist whose Southern accent gave the group its regional flavor. Peter Buck was a versatile guitarist who could play loud or soft. Bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry were a rhythm section who kept a solid beat and also contributed to the songwriting until health issues forced Berry to retire in 1997. R.E.M never recovered from his loss. I don't think they rank as high as their ancestors, The Byrds, but they kept folk rock alive in the 80s, even though their version was a bit skewed.
