I’ll settle for a cup of coffee, but you know what I really need

I was listening to Monster by REM this morning. I often forget how much I love this album, ‘though that love was certainly not instant, what with it being the departure  it was from REM’s folk rock beginnings and the pure beauty of Automatic for the people. Monster is raw. I recall a quote from Bill Berry on the making of the album. “Pete’s got a new guitar and I’ve got a new set of drums and I get to hit them real hard“. It sums up perfectly the attitude they must have had going into the recording of this album. Balls out, “fuck it, let’s do this and see what happens”.

For me it brings back memories of a time gone by. The summer of ’95.
