    I believe the general public and the critics must have been tired of R.E.M. when this came out or something.... Can't think of any other reason for why this record has been so hated, because it's quietly beautiful and stunning. I blew off some songs at first, but if you go back to the record and listen with an open mind then suddenly something clicks. Also Michael Stipe really nailed his lyrics on this one.

    ATS passed me by. A number of good tracks, Boy in the Well, I wanted to be wrong, aftermath, but the rest was meh!

    collection of really good songs, but altogether it is unbelievable tasteless and shallow. Strange.

    Very underrated album indeed. I don't see how anyone in their right mind could think it compares unfavorably to Reveal, which I think is definitely their most over-produced and under-developed album (despite some a couple true gems like Beat a Drum). In contrast, Around the Sun contains no terrible tracks (i.e. Imitation of Life), and really has a more vibrant and organic sound compared to Reveal, even if it doesn't climb to the level of Up. And some of the songs (Boy in the Well, Leaving New York, The Ascent of Man) are among the best of their career. Don't take Peter Buck's word that this album is terrible - it's definitely not.

    sure there are a few undeniable duds, but the good songs are really good imo.

    It's a shame the production/arrangements are so flat, cause there's a lot to recommend this one songswise. I heard it was recorded in breaks from touring the Best Of. Maybe if they'd had more time to work the songs out as a band it would have come to life a bit more, like some songs did when they finally got around to playing them live on the ATS tour

    still don't understand why a lot of rem fans don't love this album... for me it is quietly beautiful, powerful & melancholic. highly nostalgic also. i find myself listening to a lot of the songs on repeat, especially the last 3 tracks (so beautiful). this album is relevant to *me*, because it puts me in this calm and still mood that a lot of music isn't capable of doing. not because it's boring, but because it makes me feel better about life somehow. therefore around the sun is not a dull album, it is a healing album.

    Easily their weakest...there's just nothing here that is remotely compelling, which is very unusual for them (I always find at least one song on all their albums that I find brilliant and inspired). Everything is mid-tempo and produced to the extreme...the most narrow palette of all their albums too (most of these songs could easily fit into the "adult contemporary" genre, which is tired in and of itself). 24 years after their start, this is the first time it can honestly be said that they sound irrelevant.

    Really enjoying this so far. I love it when an album pleasantly surprises me.

    Strangely enough, it's one of my most listened REM album. Probably because it is slightly more accessible than most of their output. I really have a soft spot for this album.

    It is as creative and uncompromising as a pop album can be, no wonder it's less successful commercially and widely criticized by mainstream media:)

    Leaving New York is Around the Sun's I'll Take the Rain. I mean, its ausence would make the album a "lesser bad" record.

    Melodic? Very. Weakest? Hardly.

    This album is much maligned but I prefer it to most of their recent output. It's mellow and melodic.

    As mentioned below, this is a slow album, and not nearly anywhere near their best, but it's also not anywhere near as bad as it is made out to be.

    Best songs are: Final Straw, Worst Joke Ever, High Speed Train, Make it All Okay, Aftermath, Boy in the Well, in that order. That's seven songs (out of thirteen) that make this a great album (and I'm not mentioning the obvious hit which is Leaving New York). The Album ranks third among my R.E.M. favourites: * New Adventures in Hi-Fi * Accelerate * Around the Sun This will change soon with the release of Collapse into Now which is set to become second or first in this list.
