Background: Released in 1996, New Adventures in Hi-Fi was the tenth album by R.E.M. .
The album reached #1 on the U.S. album chart and #2 on the UK chart.
Recorded during and immediately following R.E.M.’s disaster-prone Monster tour, New Adventures in Hi-Fi feels like it was recorded on the road. Not only are all of Michael Stipe’s lyrics on the album about moving or travel, the sound is ragged and varied, pieced together from tapes recorded at shows, soundtracks, and studios, giving it a loose, careening charm. New Adventures has the same spirit of much of R.E.M.’s IRS records, but don’t take the title of New Adventures in Hi-Fi lightly — R.E.M. tries different textures and new studio tricks. …New Adventures in Hi-Fi may run a little too long — it clocks in at 62 minutes, by far the longest album R.E.M. has ever released — yet in its multifaceted sprawl, they wound up with one of their best records of the ’90s.
