BBC MUSIC:“This third effort marked a change in direction for the band,
who infused its 11 songs with dark, unsettling undertones… Overall, Fables
is the embodiment of confusion, of minds and worlds unsure about their
futures, a sense of foreboding intensified by Stipe’s oblique, muddied lyrics.”

Keywords: Jingle jangle grooviness that inspired thousand bands afterward
