i remember an interview with michael stipe from rem a handful of years ago.
the interviewer told him they were no longer cutting edge, and that they sound like
everything else on the radio ... michael stipe's response was that they hadn't changed
what they were doing but 20+ years later everyone else caught up with them.
( personally, i thought they were much better when you couldn't understand much of what stipe slurred+mumbled)
