We gave it a B

Now that R.E.M. have split, it’s the end of the world as we know it — but, apparently, not the end of repackaging their work. Fans will already own the hits on the two-disc set Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage (1982-2011), a ”best of” from the I.R.S. and Warner Bros. years. Still, there are three new songs, finished after this year’s Collapse Into Now, and folky highlight ”We All Go Back to Where We Belong” suggests that ­Athens’ finest had more sweet jangle left in ’em. Sad. B
