Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
R.E.M.: Perfect Square captures a concert performance recorded live at Bowling Green in Wiesbaden, Germany, July 19, 2003. It includes early classics ("The One I Love"), hit pop singles ("Losing My Religion"), rarities ("The Great Beyond"), and recent material ("Animal"). Appropriately, the show opens with "Begin the Begin" and closes with a finale of "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)." Two songs (the oldie "Maps and Legends" and the unreleased "Permanent Vacation") hadn't been performed since the '80s. The documentary "A Stirling Performance" covers the band's stay in Stirling, Scotland, during the summer tour of 1999. This disc includes interviews, performances, and behind-the-scenes footage.
