From the PR:

Warner Music Vision celebrates one of the most influential groups of the past two decades with the 27th October 2003 DVD and VHS release of R.E.M, In View: The Best Of R.E.M 1988-2003.

The simultaneously released DVD companion to the CD collection In Time: The Best of R.E.M 1988-2003, the band's first greatest hits album to catalogue their most successful years, In View: The Best Of R.E.M 1988-2003 will also be R.E.M's first 'best-of' video compilation from this period, containing singles from the albums: Reveal, Up, New Adventures in Hi Fi, Monster, Automatic For The People, Out Of Time and Green.

Pioneers of the American 'alternative' rock band scene, R.E.M inspired a generation with their distinctive guitar driven sound, strong artistic direction and enigmatic lyrics. Since forming in the early 80's in Athens, Georgia, the down-to-earth quartet has sold tens of millions of albums worldwide: evolving from small clubs and college radio to play packed concert arenas and sell-out tours.In View: The Best Of R.E.M 1988-2003 features 16 video clips, including the acclaimed classics Losing My Religion and Everybody Hurts.

This DVD-Video also brings together several compelling performances from 2001's South Africa Freedom Day concert in London's Trafalgar Square.

This 'Best-Of' DVD captures R.E.M in all their glory, including the upbeat Stand from the album Green, released in 1988, the intensely soulful Nightswimming and calypso-like Man On The Moon, taken from 1992's hugely successful Automatic For The People, plus the charming What's The Frequency Kenneth?, from R.E.M's edgy, rock-orientated Monster album released in 1994.

R.E.M are currently on a world tour that has attracted rave reviews and placed them firmly back in the public eye. A two-night spell at the Brixton Academy earlier this year was a fitting warm up to headlining the Glastonbury Festival. It also provided a fantastic opportunity to showcase fantastic new material, including the new track Bad Day, which will be the first single to be taken from the album In Time: Best of R.E.M 1988-2003.

Presented on DVD in stunning crystal clear picture and a choice of audio settings including Dolby Digital 5.1, the disc offers further insights into the world of R.E.M with two exclusive documentaries, 'This Way Up' and 'Rough Cut'.

The new 2-disc best-of R.E.M CD collection In Time: The Best OF R.E.M 1988-2003 will feature 16 classic tracks, two new songs Bad Day and Animal (especially recorded for the best-of package), plus special edition highlights and B-sides. The 27th October 2003 will be a red letter day for all fans of R.E.M as the band plan to release the DVD/VHS best-of In View, the 2-disc CD In Time and the 5.1 Advanced Resolution Surround Sound DVD-Audio album version of In Time.
