HASH(0x94921a70) étoiles sur 5 Best of the Rest 13 juillet 2002
Par Brian D. Rubendall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
"Dead Letter Office" is a housecleaning effort from R.E.M.'s days on IRS records (1981-1987). As such it provides an interesting alternative view of the band. Several of the tracks reveal a goofy sense of humor that doesn't show itself on their "proper" albums. Two examples are "Voice of Harold," which features the backing track from "7 Chinese Brothers" as singer Michael Stipe reads a studio promotional flyer, and a cover of the Roger Miller country staple "King of the Road." The band acknowledges its considerable debt to the Velvet Underground by covering no less than three songs ("There She Goes Again," "Pale Blue Eyes" and "Femme Fatle") that are among the best performances here. Aerosmith's "Toys in the Attic" even gets a workout. The CD includes the contents of the band's 1981 EP "Chronic Town" as a (very considerable) bonus.
Overall, rarities albums don't get much better than "Dead Letter Office."

HASH(0x94921ac4) étoiles sur 5 Great REM, a great listen and a great buy 20 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is, quite simply, my favorite REM CD for repeat listening. The only track I feel is even remotely substandard is the mangled rendition of "King of the Road", and even that track is pretty good listening compared to the filler most bands use to fill out an album. The inclusion of the Chronic Town EP as the last five tracks on the disc are an added listening bonus, as this album provides one of the longest-playing REM CD's I own, and I'm just as happy to start over again at the beginning immediately after listening to it.

I love the songs on this disc. Along with the 'dead letters', which show interesting sides of REM's early journey, you get the EP nobody can get - Chronic Town -- with the songs we danced to live at the 40 Watt, "Gardening at Night", "Carnival of Sorts (Box Cars)" , etc. Really neat are some of the random recordings like King of the Road (read the liner notes...).

HASH(0x94921b9c) étoiles sur 5 Humble beginnings and the choice leftovers 23 février 2007
Par tick tock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I had nearly forgotten about this record when I started re-perusing R.E.M.'s catalog the other day, but this was one of my favorites by the band from Athens. Not only does it collect a large number of covers and b-sides that wound up on the cutting room floor of IRS, it also contains the hard to find Chronic Town, the band's debut Ep that never enjoyed formal release on Cd.

Chronologically speaking, that EP was a glorious beginning for a group whose vocalist was otherwise incomprehensible to his listeners. We wondered at length what Stipe was actually saying (even coining the term "Michael Stipe diisease" for any singer who mumbled too much), but in the end we had to content ourselves with great music, even if the vocals were little more than a melody of their own.

As for the rest of the disc... well, you're in for a pleasant surprise. Unlike other catch-all compilations that seem to cash in on the loyalty of fans while delivering little in the process, the b-sides and covers are infinitely listenable. When taking in these tracks it becomes quickly evident the affection REM has for such bands as the Velvet Underground and Aerosmtih. Other homages such as Roger Miller's 'King of the Road' communicate a deep connection to the south (and country music in general) and leave one wondering what other influences REM might be hiding.

Dead Letter Office may be the kind of Cd you would prefer to cut, paste, and burn onto a couple blank discs, but it stands on its own as a document of REM's early development and the bands they owe so much to. Well worth your time.

HASH(0x94775210) étoiles sur 5 the bottom line 27 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This record is not for everyone. However, if you are like me and got into the band circa Green,you missed a lot of stuff! Like many, I went back and got all of the older albums I'd missed, yet my collection was still lacking. The Chronic Town EP had been out of print for years and tracking down the singles? HA! Anyone who was fortunate enough to glom onto one of these certainly wasn't letting it go. Not at a resonable price at least. Then I stumbled across this little gem. A virtual treasure trove of lost B-sides; drunken fun in the studio; covers that, many times, outshine the originals and they threw in Chronic Town to boot! No, not every song is solid gold, but this album isn't about "the hits", nor does it try to be. It's simply a compilation that showcases the many facets of a brilliant band growing, expanding, and trying new things, sometimes finding itself on the top of the mountain, sometimes tossed against the jagged rocks below, but always walking unafraid. But then again, maybe it's just a compilation of stuff you could never track down put together on on one CD, a smourgasborg of tasty treats offered up for your enjoyment from the fine folks at R.E.M. Either way, I'm diggin' it.
