CRITIC REVIEWS

NME
REM are back after the period of self-imposed reinvention, and 'Out Of Time' is easily their most eclectic and wildly inspired album yet, although it is still very identifiably REM - a brand new book from a familiar author.

Coke Machine Glow

All told, it’s a fantastic if incohesive effort, often written off as foreplay for the Automatic juggernaut, but more than sturdy enough to stand on its own.

Rolling Stone

There are no treatises on ecology or foreign policy, no oblique strategies or hidden agendas. There doesn't have to be; all of that is implicit in the atmosphere of entropy, of things falling apart, that's evoked and detailed candidly, with glimmering beauty and unsurpassable sadness, on Out of Time.

Entertainment Weekly

Out of Time marks the end of the world as R.E.M. knows it, and they don’t feel so fine.

AllMusic

Out of Time is among R.E.M.'s best work -- a mature, balanced, graceful collection of pop songs quite different from Murmur and Reckoning. Buck, Berry, and Mills switch instruments frequently, keeping the music fresh and exciting.

Out of time for the alternative days, this is the vibrant testimony of a major rock group sharing its massive tunes with the rest of the world.
