R.E.M’s track “Fascinating” was recorded in Nassau  in 2004 and is being released to benefit global organization Mercy Corps’ Hurricane Dorian relief and recovery efforts in the Bahamas.  While that’s a noble effort, “Fascinating” is a mawkish mess.  Electronics and overproduction swirl in this dated track that feels like a warmed up leftover from “Reveal.”  Bleah.  Check it out if you really feel the need.
