Stream R.E.M.'s "'Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982–2011" On NPR

Seminal alt/college rock pioneers R.E.M. recently ended an outstanding career that lasted longer than I've been alive, but not before announcing a parting gift for everyone they'd touched over the years: their final compilation/retrospective album Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage: 1982–2011. And once again, NPR has come through with an exclusive stream of the album in advance of its November 15 release.

Check it out over here. As NPR themselves note, the best way to really experience R.E.M. is through the original albums as the compilation format is inherently designed to hit the high / most popular points without context, but nonetheless Part Lies... serves as a decent primer and a spur for any new fans to go back and explore R.E.M.'s catalog.
