In 1994, R.E.M. released their ninth studio album paying artistic homage to the grunge bands of the day, i.e. Nirvana. Monster is a guitar-driven album of bare backed rock ’n’ roll that garnished strong reactions from fans. Some of them loved it, some hated it, but none could ignore this ragged departure from the group's preceding albums.
I chose Monster for an album cover redesign, paying my own homage to R.E.M. for their risky willingness to reflect the sonic grungefest of the 90’s.
