R.E.M.'s ninth album, Monster, was released at a time when the band were coming off the peak of their mainstream success, following Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992). Coming from a long break in touring (the band famously didn't tour with the two previous records), Monster represented an intentional shift in R.E.M.'s sound, a "return to rock" with guitar laden, simple arrangements. It was released to strong reviews and significant global success - reaching #1 on Billboard, and least seven other countries. The album includes the singles; What's the Frequency, Kenneth?, Crush With Eyeliner, Bang and Blame, and Strange Currencies. In 1995 the band promoted that album with their first concert tour since 1989 (although several band members suffered health problems).

The band's new artistic direction proved to be a hit. Monster debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and would be certified four-times Platinum in the U.S.. Now, this 25th anniversary edition supplements the original record with bonus LP featuring a special 2019 remix from Monster producer Scott Litt.
