Recommended for: No one, not even R.E.M. fans
Read from July 18 to 21, 2010

Wow, this was possibly even worse than the first edition. The "update" is Up, the Man on the Moon soundtrack, Reveal, the first-release tracks on In Time, and Around the Sun. Whereas the earlier songs generally have a few paragraphs to a page of analysis, the tracks from these last five albums usually have only one paragraph of explanation. It feels like this "updated version" was just thrown together. Also, the typos and formatting/layout issues were aggravating.

If you want good details about R.E.M. songs, find a different book. This "The stories behind every song" isn't worth it.
