The String Quartet Tribute to R.E.M.$13.98
Release Date: 10/26/1999
The String Quartet Tribute to R.E.M. is a match made in heaven. Marrying R.E.M.’s inimitable Georgia swamp style with the sound of a classic string quartet, violins rage and rough-edged cellos jam head to head with bittersweet viola. In between exquisite versions of popular hits such as “Everybody Hurts” and “Losing My Religion” are ambitious and provocative re-workings of older favorites like “Stand” and “The One I Love.” Both devout fans and keen pop listeners will enjoy this playful and adventurous journey through the legend of R.E.M., always modern and classical at the same time.
