Get some Summer '68 into you.

(OK, I know to most people it's a bloody weird choice, but I adore that song.)

OK, REM fans, I'd like to give Monster another chance. Besides What's The Frequency, what tracks would you recommend I listen to?

Ha, yeah. Comfortably Numb, Hey You, and Run Like Hell are good, but the rest is just dross.

I think Let Me In is an amazing song.

I also really like I Took Your Name.

Monster hasn't held up for me over time. It's not even remotely a bad album, it just seems dated to me.

Hah, I have I Took Your Name on right now. I was reading REM Wikipedia articles last night and one about a live release mentioned I Took Your Name was a setlist rarity, so on a whim I put it on and enjoyed it. Moving onto Let Me In now.

OK, back in 25 minutes or so, folks.

As for Monster, I preferred I Took Your Name to Let Me In. Circus Envy seems pretty cool.

a rarity? Hell, they opened with it at quite a few Monster tour shows, I thought. I don't think that's right.

The live version on their recent live CD/DVD is killer.

Tidbit about Let Me In - written about Kurt Cobain (he and Stipe were friends), Mike Mills plays lead guitar, and at least on the tour, he played one of Kurt's guitars for that song.

I like Circus Envy, partly because it's so goofy.

I see Summer '68 is being extolled by Axver. Guess I must not have missed anything new and interesting.

This is true. All that came before was about 30 pages of trams, trains and planes.

What's up?

It's been so long since I listened to it.

I Took Your Name was mentioned already. I've always liked Bang And Blame, too.

I wholeheartedly support what REM were going for with Monster. It's not great overall, but the best moments are.
