Obviously
Monster is indeed R.E.M.'s long-promised "rock" album; it just doesn't rock in the way one might expect. Instead of R.E.M.'s trademark anthemic bashers, Monster offers a set of murky sludge, powered by the heavily distorted and delayed guitar of Peter Buck. Stipe's vocals have been pushed to the back of the mix, along with Bill Berry's drums, which accentuates the muscular pulse of Buck's chords. From the androgynous sleaze of "Crush with Eyeliner" to the subtle, Eastern-tinged menace of "You," most of the album sounds dense, dirty and grimy, which makes the punchy guitars of "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?" and the warped soul of "Tongue" all the more distinctive. Monster doesn't have the conceptual unity or consistently brilliant songwriting of Automatic, but it does offer a wide range of sonic textures that have never been heard on an R.E.M. album before.

Weakest REM is still worth a listen
R.E.M. might just be the greatest rock band that has ever entered a recording studio. When I first heard "Murmur" in '83 it changed my life. Only the Clash's "London Calling" and Gang of Four's "Entertainment" have ever meant as much. "Monster" does not reach the standard of most R.E.M. releases. It does not approach the effortless brilliance of "Murmur", "Reckoning" or "Life's Rich Pageant". It does not even rise to the level of more recent releases like "New Adventures in Hi-Fi" or the criminally under-rated "Up". What is missing from "Monster"? - MELODY! This is simply not a particularly tuneful set of songs. With the exception of the two hits (Kenneth and Blame) there is little that rewards repeated listening. I'd rather hear "Fretless" from the Until the End of the World soundtrack or "The Great Beyond" from Man on the Moon. That is not to say that the disc is bad - almost everything this band does is worth hearing. But if you're new to R.E.M. (where have you been?!) start with anything but this or Dead Letter Office.

Monster in me
Previous albums are all mixed with REM. U can either be hippy or commercial. Monster takes an era of chaos and encapsulates it in a pill thats hard to swallow. It's music to my ears, and there was passion on stage that was unforgetable. bring back that passion to all the bands........

One of their best
It may be difficult at first, but I believe that Monster is one of REMs finest. Beneath the distorted guitar you will find some gorgeous melodies. This album is very, very listenable. It's one that I keep coming back to, even 16 years after its release.

Is this R.E.M.? Such a boring album!
R.E.M.'s weakdest album. But there are a few good tracks: "What's the Frequency, Kenneth?", "Bang And Blame", "Tongue" and "Strange Currencies", my favorite song on Monster. "Let Me In" was written for Kurt Cobain (because of his death in 1994). It's not such a bad song. "I Don't Sleep, I Dream" is also pretty good. This is not the classic R.E.M. album, but don't avoid it, there are some good songs on it!
