    Fables of the Reconstruction is the third studio album by the American rock band R.E.M., released on June 10, 1985. The album explores a darker and more atmospheric musical direction, incorporating elements of folk and Americana into R.E.M.'s evolving sound. 

    "Fables of the Reconstruction" features haunting and introspective tracks, with Michael Stipe's enigmatic vocals delivering poetic and evocative lyrics. The album's sonic landscape captures a sense of mystery and Southern Gothic ambiance, reflecting the band's fascination with the American South.

    "Fables of the Reconstruction" reached a peak position of #28 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. While it did not achieve the same commercial success as some of their later albums, the album's artistic depth and critical acclaim solidified R.E.M.'s reputation as a prominent alternative rock band.
