been listening to ZOOROPA a lot lately and it just sounds ahead of it's time.............BONO's voice and the band just sound cool, the vibe off that album is cool and fresh for me even today, and yes ZOOROPA is an epic under rated tune.

The idiots at SPIN wrote this piece for the 20th anniversary. I wonder what would be their vote between Zooropa and Pop...

Yes indeed. But how in hell did the editors at SPIN accept to publish such a biased article?

U2 bashing always creates a buzz, sometimes they bring it on themselves but in this case clearly it was to get a reaction from it's fan base.

Zooropa. I love every track apart from the final song. I substitute that with Oh Berlin and it's the perfect album! I really love Pop too though, although a couple of the songs on it I'm not crazy about. It's such an eclectic album though. So many different styles on it and it's so inventive. Zooropa is my joint second favourite U2 album (along with The Joshua Tree). Achtung Baby being my number 1 favourite and Pop, therefore is my 4th favourite.

90's U2 - can't beat them! :)

I've never been that keen on it and (for me) it doesn't fit in with the rest of the album, it feels completely out of place on it. On a Johnny Cash album it would be fine, I'm sure. The song spoils the mood of Zooropa for me, but that's just my own taste. I know it's a popular song with many. I love hearing Oh Berlin at the end, even though I know it wasn't recorded for Zooropa. It just sounds good with the other songs. :)

After more than 150 votes, it's a tie.

The SPIN article speaks negatively of the zooropa album but then says it's hard not to be nostalgic for it. It criticizes lemon before praising it, then praises numb, some days, stay and zooropa itself. It describes the back half of the album as being less than the first half but then says it compares to the Joshua Tree in that regard. It is on the fence about the wanderer - so overall it's hard to see which parts of the album inspired such a negative review. They mention 6 of the albums 10 songs in either positive, neutral or half and half tones. I suppose they truly hated daddy's gonna pay, baby face, dirty day and the first time ....
