Which do you like better: Zooropa or Pop?

It's a tough choice for me.  Zooropa has Lemon and Dirty Day while Pop has Mofo and Gone...

Had to go with Pop because it has more strong moments than Zooropa.

While the song Zooropa is perhaps my favorite U2 track ever, I had to go with Pop. It's a stronger album overall.

Pop - but we are measuring 2 of what I consider to be u2's top 3 albums and both are great.

Impossible.  I love both these albums beyond measure, but I choose Pop.  I mean, Discotheque, Mofo, Do You Feel Loved, Staring at the Sun, Gone, Please, Wake Up Dead Man.  But I mean, Zooropa has the title track, Numb, Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car, Lemon & The Wanderer.  I feel like (at least at this moment) the tracks on Pop that I love, I may love a little bit more than those on Zooropa.  Nonetheless, I love both and I need both.

Pop. Zooropa is great, my third favorite U2 album, but Pop much stronger overall. Outside of the title track, Zooropa doesn't have a Mofo or Discotheque.

I love Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car, but it doesn't touch either of those songs I mentioned. Mofo is one of the most "out-of-this-world" sounds that U2 have ever created and Discotheque is just badass and grooves like hell.

People here love that clip of POP before POP existed, with the previous versions of some songs. Well... I believe that's how those songs would have sounded if they were in Zooropa.

Come one, it's an album that begins with the track Zooropa and finishes with Johnny Cash, and everything in the middle is raw, alive and sophisticated. It sounds like sushi with good wine.

The ending of Daddy has a lot more buzz, dirty, heavyness and layers, it makes you feel like a rusty robot being kicked at a party in the junkyard. That's what I call "out-of-this-world".

had to go with Pop...this is the album I grew up on. It was the beginning of my U2 love at the age of 10 so this is my youth at its core

Pop was the album that opened my eyes to U2 in 97. But Zooropa has Lemon, Stay, Zooropa, Wanderer, Dirty Day. I mean i can never hear it enough.

I have to vote Pop. Without ZooTV/AB Zooropa may not stand up as an album that has its own identity. POP is a horrible,snarling bully of an album, and is better for it.

I like Pop much more, but I hold Zooropa very high in my personal ranking
