We gave it an B+

The disc to the Andy Kaufman biopic, Man on the Moon, features choice dialogue and kitschy ephemera, but the real draw is R.E.M., who offer an evocative instrumental score and two memorable songs: ”The Great Beyond” and ”This Friendly World.” The former, a new original, ranks with the band’s most poignant ballads. The latter pays appropriate tribute to Kaufman’s genius, with Michael Stipe trading vocals with an in-character Jim Carrey.
