In Time: The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003 Rarities and B-Sides
Released: Oct 2003
Label: Warner Bros.
This bonus disc to R.E.M.'s In Time retrospective features their best alternate versions, B-sides and live cuts from 1988-2003. It proves R.E.M. remained more interesting and vital throughout the 1990s than some fans will admit. William Burroughs' reworking of "Star Me Kitten" from Automatic for the People is oddly moving.
