Approximately 25 years ago I purchased R.E.M.’s 16-bit audio CD based on a recommendation. Little did I realize it would become my favorite recording of my extensive music collection. It never fails to satisfy through repeated listenings, shuffled tracks, etc. I reach for it often to fill the void.
R.E.M. and Craft Recordings are reissuing Automatic for the People as a 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition in various editions and packages on November 10th. The edition that has my interest is the four-disc box set. R.E.M.’s Automatic For The People, Blu-Ray Disc 4 is the first album to be commercially released in the expressive, breathtaking format known as Dolby Atmos.
Been waiting for Automatic for the People in high resolution for some time now, soon it will be here…
“It speaks of the fragility and beauty of life and living life to the fullest in the present moment” – Michael Stipe reflecting about Automatic for the People.
