A Brand New R.E.M. Song! Thoughts?

Dig! My once-and-always fave band is putting out a new album called "Around the Sun." Dig their first single, yo! It's called "Leaving New York."

What do we think, friends? Do we hearken nostalgically back to "Nightswimming?" Do we think it's too poppypop and not Murmursmurky enough? But don't those harmonies melt your cockles a little bit? Do we like that the lyrics are so overt in the mix? Ou sont les "up to par and Katie bars the kitchen-size but not me in" moments?

Just wanted to share.
