Vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered edition. R.E.M.Æs ninth album,?Monster, was released in September 1994. At that time, the members of R.E.M. were at a crossroads in their career. Singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry were decompressing from the massive commercial and critical success of 1991Æs Out of Time and 1992Æs Automatic for the People. In just a few years, the Athens, GA, four-piece had become one of the biggest, most recognizable bands in the world. It had also been six years since the group had toured. By the time that work began on Monster, they were itching to end their self-imposed hiatus and get back on the road. The band was also looking for a sonic shake-up. While R.E.M.Æs last two albums were full of ballads, acoustic rock songs and intricate arrangements, the group was ready to record something grittier, brasher and highly playable on stage. Highlights include the singles ôWhatÆs The Frequency, Kenneth?,ö ôCrush with Eyeliner,ö ôStar 69,ö ôStrange Currencies,ö ôTongue,ö and ôBang and Blame.ö
