R.E.M. released REVEAL in 2001 lush with a delectable blend of acoustic and electronic, guitar, and drum machine. While critically acclaimed it didn’t sell as well as other members of the R.E.M. library and, subsequently, remains an underrated album. But, that’s just it. It’s strength lies in its cohesiveness in theme, lyric, texture, and tone as an album. Since its release in 2001 it has been a constant companion amidst a slew of albums that have floated in and then back out of rotation by various artists and bands. I’ve created a site devoted to the album complete with video links, published album reviews, REVEAL-era artwork and photos, and lyrics (lyric page still under construction). Also included is an exclusive reflection from part-time R.E.M. extended-band member Ken Stringfellow (The Posies and The Disciplines) about his experiences taking part in the making of REVEAL.
