4 Cd Set
A little pricey, but worth it if you love REM

"The best song on the small 3 CD set (which has enough songs to fill up one album...there's about 4 songs on each CD) is "First We Take Manhattan", which is timeless. This song will be great forever. * Me Kitten is fantastic as well. The instrumentals are terrific, but the highlight is definitely the Cover Versions CD. Like the previous review, I think Ghost Rider and especially The Lion Sleeps Tonight are fantastic songs. REM singing The Lion Sleeps Tonight, just like they sing "There She Goes Again" and "Pale Blue Eyes" by the Velvet Undergound, makes you want to hear Michael Stipe and Co. sing more songs that were made popular by other groups. REM makes a fantastic sound. The live Everybody Hurts is wonderful as well. It won't take long for every song on this collection...none of which can be found on any of their previous CDs...to be completely enjoyed by you. It's expensive for 12 songs, but if you want to expand your collection, bite the bullet. It costs as much as a first date, and probably a lot more enjoyable."
