NPR Music played the entire new R.E.M. album, Collapse Into Now for a special, one time listening party, live on Mar. 1. All Songs Considered hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton shared and discussed R.E.M.'s best collection of new songs in more than a decade. We also had a chat room for fans to talk about the record. You can read the archive of the full discussion below.

Stream the entire album on-demand in our First Listen series starting March 2.
