R.E.M. has dropped several anthologies over the years, but Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage is the first to feature selections from the band's albums for both the I.R.S. and Warner Bros. labels. As a result, it allows listeners to follow the group's full evolution from jangle-pop brats to alternative superstars of the '90s to elder statesmen flying the flag for dads everywhere who still crave fairly hip rock music.
