    Lifes Rich Pageant is the fourth studio album by the American rock band R.E.M., released on July 28, 1986. The album represents a pivotal moment in R.E.M.'s career, as it marked their transition to a wider audience and commercial success.

    "Lifes Rich Pageant" features a more polished and accessible sound compared to their previous releases. The album retains R.E.M.'s signature jangle-pop style, but with a newfound clarity and catchiness in their songwriting. 

    "Lifes Rich Pageant" reached a peak position of #21 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. The album's chart success, along with the hit singles "Fall on Me" and "Superman," contributed to R.E.M.'s growing popularity and recognition on the mainstream music scene.

    The album's title, "Lifes Rich Pageant," is a mondegreen (a misinterpretation of lyrics) of the saying "Life's a Rich Pageant," which reflects the album's themes of social and political commentary.
