askthesky.com is a successor of Talk About
the Passion (TATP) and Star69 web sites which were quite popular
in years 1995-1997 and were no longer updated since 1997.
This site will try to provide many of the
popular features of above mentioned web sites - TATP photo
archive and some special features. It will not try to be an
r.e.m. online fan community, news site or lyrics, guitar or
audio site. There are other better sites with such information
available, you can find links to them in web guide and r.e.m.

Electrolite, Hope, Belong and similar slower and deeper songs.
Why I like R.E.M. music? Well, they're the only band I know

gives you the freedom of interpretation - as Mike Mills said

of Michael's lyrics. They're non-linear, oblique and open
to that. And it's what in contributes to the albums' longevity
- they can change and grow over the years with you as you
