Royal Court Theatre. Peter Buck described the album as "a 'rock' record, with the 'rock' in quotation marks. There's a nudge, nudge, wink, wink feel to the whole record.
Like, it's a rock record, but is it really? And you come back to the fact that playing loud electric-guitar music is about as fun as music can be. The band has called it a "foxy, in-your-face, punk rock , trashed and stupid" record. Stipe wrote Monster 's lyrics in character; this, according to biographer Dan Buckley, "set the real Stipe at a distance from the mask adopted for each song.
I don't know who they are, because they're not Michael. I would say that this was the only time where he's done characters that are creepy, and I don't know if anyone got that. He was getting out his things by acting out these parts that are not him.
I know what the next Nirvana record was going to sound like. It was going to be an amazing fucking record, and I'm a little angry at him for killing himself. He and I were going to make a trial run of the album.
It was set up. He had a plane ticket. At the last minute he called and said, 'I can't come. The cover art features a blurred drawing of a bear's head against an orange background.
The concept originated when Stipe showed cover artist Chris Bilheimer a balloon he wanted to use as the album cover and told him to "play around with". Bilheimer changed the color of the balloon which was originally green , and re-photographed the bear head. When he was down to the last few frames on a roll of film, he took a few photos without bothering to focus the shots which he and Stipe ended up liking the best.
The back cover has the body of the bear next to the track listing, and the inside sleeve features images of the cartoon character Migraine Boy. I haven't met Greg, but I've talked to him a lot on the phone. We were actually in San Francisco at the same time, but I was working on another project and we had a television visit for about two hours. This is an exclusive. I don't think anybody else knows about Migraine Boy yet. The booklet contains several alternate names and working titles of songs recorded for the album.
In interviews, the band has described its process of naming albums: they tape a large sheet of paper on the studio wall, and then write down random ideas as they occur. The limited-edition deluxe CD was packaged with a page hardcover book of photographs and artwork including Migraine Boy , similar to the visual extras in other s and s limited-edition R.
The Monster book also included an obi strip and a different design printed on the disc itself, which fitted into a die-cut, star-shaped opening inside the book's cover. Monster debuted at number one on the Billboard charts  and the British album charts.
The album was among the first promoted with online content, which was also distributed via floppy disk. The album was generally praised. Rolling Stone critic Robert Palmer noted that Stipe's lyrics dealt with issues of identity "The concept of reality itself is being called into question: Is this my life or an incredible virtual simulation?
Moreover, the loudly trumpeted fox factor has been conspicuous by its absence. In , Warner Bros. Despite their highest chart positions to date in and , R. The tour, which played arenas and amphitheaters, began in January with shows in Australia and Japan and continued throughout Europe and the United States for the rest of the year. Support acts included Sonic Youth and Radiohead.
Although the tour was a commercial success, it was difficult for the group. He had surgery immediately, and recovered fully within a month. Berry's aneurysm was the beginning of a series of health problems for the band; Mills had surgery to remove an intestinal adhesion in July, and a month later Stipe had emergency surgery to repair a hernia. They used eight-track recorders to capture the shows, and based the new album on those recordings. The edition contains remastered, live and demo versions of the songs from the album, as well as, unusually, a CD containing a fully remixed version of the album.
The remix was the brainchild of original producer Scott Litt, who had long regretted the original mixing job he had done on Monster , which involved distortion and vocals low in the mix, in keeping with the grunge style popular at the time.
