Before Nirvana's NEVERMIND closed out the year with the unexpected commercial triumph of grunge rock, R.E.M.'s OUT OF TIME was the sound of alternative music circa 1991. The smash singles "Losing My Religion"--perhaps the only Top Five US single ever to feature the mandolin as its lead instrument--and "Shiny Happy People" were the commercial face of the album. Elsewhere, however, R.E.M. makes a point of moving away from expectations, resulting in intriguing experiments like the surprisingly funky "Radio Song" (featuring rapper KRS-One), the spoken-word ambient chill-out "Belong," and the self-explanatory "Country Feedback." Interestingly, the songs most immediately identifiable as "R.E.M. songs," the jangly rockers "Texarkana" and "Near Wild Heaven," are both sung by bassist Mike Mills. Though it was quickly overshadowed by AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE during the following year, OUT OF TIME remains a fascinating portrait of R.E.M. at a pivotal point in the group's career.

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including booklet and digital download. Digitally remastered 25th Anniversary edition of this 1991 album by the alt-rock outfit. Out Of Time was the album that catapulted R.E.M. from an indie favorite to one of the biggest bands in the world. Topping charts in the US, UK and beyond, this three-time Grammy Award-winning album remains an iconic title in modern rock history, with hits like "Losing My Religion" and "Shiny Happy People." For the record, the album won three Grammy Awards in 1992: one as Best Alternative Music Album, and two for the first single, "Losing My Religion." The album has sold over four and a half million copies in the U.S. and over 18 million copies worldwide.
