Not a huge fan of either...but I would vote for Pop over Zooropa.  I am still not sure how to place Zooropa in the U2 canon...it kinda stands alone to me as something completely different than anything else at all.  I have trouble connecting with much of Zooropa to be honest...some of the songs have a cool beat and sound, but I don't identify with them the same as War/TUF/TJT.

Zooropa.  I do like Pop, but Zooropa is very special for me and somewhere in the top 3-4 albums of my U2antheon.

Pop was my first U2 album. They were a band at their most interesting then.

Hard decision. It depends on which time of the day you ask me. I prefer Pop early in the morning to get some energy. And Zooropa after a long day to relax a bit. To make the choice between the albums I'll look at the times I played it last months, and then it's clearly Pop.

Zooropa has quite a low-fi sound which puts some people off I think..
But it was their first album where they pushed themselves experimentally to the limit in a very ballsy way.. Yet it also produced their last truly great ballad with stay, one of my favourite u2 "rock" songs with dirty day. Then there's zooropa itself which to me is like nothing I've heard them attempt before or since and seemed very ahead of its time.

Pop seemed more of its time even if it was still experimental for u2 and incidentally.. a great record. But I'm going with Zooropa..vorst sprung Dirk technique

Zooropa for me at this minute after flip flopping back and forth before clicking the button. Jeez the best of both of these mashed together would be a pretty special album!

Pop, by a long way. Although Zooropa is fabulous.

Oh 90's U2. Where did you disappear too?  :(

Jesus this is tough. At the moment I'll go for Pop. Probably because it turned 20 recently and I've been giving it a really good listen. Gone and Last Night On Earth my current faves from that.

Overall I'll go for Zooropa. I think it comes down to personal preference at the end of the day but for me Zooropa just did it for me. Would listen to that album when walking into uni for final exams and did the same for my masters last year. For them to follow Achtung Baby with that less than two years later was some achievement.

90s U2. What. A. Band.
