"This single is a must-have for true REM collectors. The first track is a different version of Radio Song, which is about equal in quality compared to the album version. Love is All Around is done beautifully by REM here. There is also a good live version of Belong on this CD. Even if these tracks are found on other albums or bootlegs, that is irrelevent, because I have never been able to find the Automatic Box or Out of Time Box. Amazon.com, for one, is sold out of these items (and it is doubtful they will ever get more in stock)."

""Radio Song" is the first track on R.E.M.'s brilliant Out Of Time album. The song sounds different from the rest of the album, but it still works in the overall concept and it has a great appearance by the inimitable KRS-One. The single version is a remix which is not as good as the original, but still strong. Their version of the Troggs' "Love Is All Around" would not have been out of place on the album."

"I think that this is essential to any REM fan. The tracks are all unreleased, and since the unplugged boot is very hard to find, this version of Love is All Around is wonderful!"
Great for R.E.M collectors-limited version of Radio Song

"Unlike what this track listing says- the actual Radio Song you get here is a funky sounding mix entitled "Tower Of Luv Bug Mix". The track is and essential for true R.E.M collecters. As this version of Radio song is not availible on either the Automatic Box, Out of Time Album, or Out of time Box. However, the B-Sides "Love is all around" is just an out take of R.E.M unplugged, so not too rare but sounds great. And 'Belong' Live can also be found here. So the B-Sides to be are not all that great to be honest but a great and rare mix of Radio song."
