To me, I overall enjoyed R.E.M.'s "Drive" and I look forward to exploring more of their music. In a way I can see how this isn't a very "attractive" song to get into at first, but after a couple listens you surely become an addict. It's a smart and exciting track that I believe will get music lovers to appreciate what good music is all about... the journey it "Drives" us through.
