Unexplained reverts[edit]

I somehow managed to post this on my own talk-page the other day.

If you're going to revert an edit, citing it as "bad prose" or "low quality", please explain on the talk page. If we're as talented as we think we are, it shouldn't be much of a challenge to re-word something than to straight-out revert it. - Dudesleeper / Talk 09:53, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Content of the songs.[edit]

I own a copy of this album, and am at a loss as to what the track "Mr. Richards" signifies. It seems to have a political motif (narrow lack of vision, jury's eating pigeon-pie...), and I would quite like to know - whom is this person? Is this a US-specific thing? Might it be worth adding to the article? 131.111.213.33 (talk) 11:39, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Unpunctuated. . .[edit]

I believe that Accelerate is the first album to spell the band's name on the cover as "REM" instead of "R.E.M.". Was this a conscious decision on the band's part, or merely circumstance? --Heath 198.82.167.78 (talk) 17:27, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
