Reckoning recollections (REM contest)
While “Murmur” is a wonderful album full of great songs, “Reckoning” was the LP I wore out during my college years. For any music to be memorable it’s got to touch the soul, and “Reckoning” did that for me a thousand times over.
I hope it doesn’t get me disqualified, but I could care less how “Reckoning” impacted the early 80’s and the indie music scene; I’m just thankful the music exists. It’s an album that will remain special to me the rest of my life.
