    Weird, raw and beautiful all at once.

    It is, in the purest sense, a back-to-basics move for Buck: he's turned the clock back 25 years, making the album he may have always wished R.E.M. made instead of Fables of the Reconstruction.

    There is great fun here, including crackling garage rock ("10 Million BC"), acid-ballad whimsy ("Travel Without Arriving") and two dusky jangle-pop jewels, "Nothing Matters" and "Nothing Means Nothing" (the latter sung by Corin Tucker), that would have fit just fine on another, classic R.E.M. album.

    Peter Buck is likely a fans-only effort, but one that showcases a low-stakes spontaneity and a renewed sense of possibility.
