REM - Monster
Honestly still listen to it every month God knows how many years on. I know that it probably isn't their most amazing album in terms of songwriting or significance but if I could only own one record by them forever more, it'd be this one.
Weirdly I hate almost everything I liked back at this point in time too so it can't be nostalgia talking.
Let me in, Bang and blame, You, Circus envy, King of comedy, I took your name... all amazing
