    If any album deserves a physical re-release to celebrate its 25th anniversary it’s R.E.M.’s Out Of Time. After all, the original release’s novel use of longbox packaging has led some to call it “the most politically significant album in U.S. history.”

    Of course, that puts a lot of pressure on Concord Bicycle Records, the label reissuing the classic album. Luckily, they seem to be game. Available as a two-CD, three-LP, and “deluxe” four-disc box set, the 25th anniversary reissue boasts a remastered version of the album as well as demos, B-sides, and a previously unreleased song, plus new liner notes and interviews from all four band members.

    The deluxe box set also includes recordings from R.E.M.’s performance at Mountain Stage in 1991 and a Blu-ray disc with hi-resolution audio and 5.1 Surround Sound versions of Out Of Time, all of the music videos from the album, and the 1991 electronic press kit featuring in-studio footage, exclusive performances and more.
