Supernatural Superserious - first impression

Right now I'm listening to the first single from R.E.M.'s new album Accelerate. The song is Supernatural Superserious. I'm really liking it, which is a big relief as I was left underwhelmed by the last time they premiered a song (Leaving New York) from a new album. In fact, just after the first listen I would venture it is better than any of the songs from their last album.

I have to say I'm really, really happy with it. After the rehearsal concerts in Dublin in July 2007 the new material sounded awesome. Really rock and guitar heavy and I was worried a long recording process could end in the songs becoming over produced. Looking forward to the new album even more now. Roll on March 31st.
