IMHO, it's still good because it's REM.
"hey, it sucks, but its REM, so i have to like it" It doesn't matter who made it, if its pretentious lazy trash, its pretentious lazy trash. This is another one of those songs that sounds like everyone in the band hated, but shruged and said "Someone might like it."
Disappointing - as somebody said below: Cacophonous. Ahhh - just segued into Sarah McLachlan - aural soothing!!

You're right. And now that I've given it two chances, it is still terrible!
IMHO, it's still good because it's REM. In a way I think they've earned enough of my respect to always give it a chance. That said, I agree, this isn't one of their stronger songs, which is probably why it got stuck on a "Best of..." compilation. Sort of from the New Adventures in HiFi/Monster vein, which, IMO, was their weakest material. Sure there are some gems in there, but Reveal was a return to their strengths: strongly melodic pop songs.

Actually your timing was perfect.

No you don't. It's akin to a dentist's drill. Cacophonous. Not one of REM's best, IMO.
