It's been 25 yeas since REM released their sophomore album 'Reckoning' - the groundbreaking disc which firmed the band's command of college radio. In honor of this landmark anniversary, Universal is re-issuing a deluxe version of the album and 180g vinyl next Tuesday, June 23, and we're holding a blogging contest to award a free copy (as well as their debut LP 'Murmur'), and an uncut sheet of the LP artwork signed by the band.
