An underrated classic.
Probably the band's best album of the 1990's.

CD Reviews

This one takes a while to appreciate
David J. Riffle | Phoenix AZ | 08/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first time I dropped this into my car player, I just didn't have the patience to listen to the whole thing. I'm hip to the notion that if I want IRS era stuff, I play those discs. Of course, the, "big time", excursion followed, so I have those discs to play when I want. "UP", on the other hand is a whole 'nuther thing.

The way it works for me is to play it on my home system while I'm occupied with something like cleaning up. Here is where you must bring to the table two things--you must really like Michael Stipe's voice, and you have to enjoy aural wallpaper once in a while.

I will be the first to warn you that this album is not for everyone...not even for all R.E.M. fans. But, if you let it, it just might creep into your good graces.

Up is genius

"Some reviewers don't get it. This is pure genius. It is called "Up" because it is so utterly down. There are two types of music in this world. The first is something you get and enjoy immediately on the radio. And you forget it just as quickly while your foot stops tapping and you want to rid your mind of its irritating tune and rhythm. The second is classical, it is an acquired taste, an experience that can only be savored in the moment of realization that you have connected to a genius and you are awed by that realization. Listen again and again to Up and, like Berlioz or Shostakovich, you will get it eventually. If you don't get it, don't worry about this album. Go back to listening to Depeche Mode and you will be happy."
