R.E.M.: Automatic for the People, Monster, Reveal

I've just read "Fiction", David Buckley's biography of R.E.M., and was reminded there are several of their albums I don't own for various reasons.

"Automatic For The People" I never got around to buying because my sister bought it and I taped it off her. I listened to it a fair bit, though not as much as the previous albums. This resulted in me not buying "Monster", although I still appreciated the singles when I heard them on the radio.

I was in Chicago the week "Reveal" was released and regret not buying it then. I later downloaded it and listened to it a lot when I met my partner. A superb return to form.

There are other gaps. I'd better clear some more space...
