Zooropa has the title track, Lemon, and The Wanderer. U2 have never released anything else that can compete with those three.

Wish somebody had given the writer of that piece a lesson on how to use paragraphs.

I think this online version is some sort of a scan of the magazine version, because when this was published, there was no internet.  ;)  And maybe the paragraphs got lost along the way (?)

I would have to check the hard-copy version, which is somewhere in the basement, with all the other U2 related mags I collected over the years.

I love Zooropa, but I cannot believe it's only one vote behind POP right now...POP should be kicking butt.

No hesitation to go with Pop: at first listen it might sound a superficial dancing album but there's a lot of deep reflections in it. Zooropa is good. But not great.

 I love both albums, but Pop is without a doubt the stronger, meatier work. Zooropa in comparison is just an appetizer

Zooropa. "Lemon" puts it over the top for me.

Such a dilemma. My two favorite U2 albums.

In the end, I went with Zooropa.

There's nothing as good as Lemon on Pop, but overall Zooropa feels a bit sparse compared to the two albums which sandwich it (AB and Pop).

I'd say there is an argument for Lemon being one of the bands finest moments. It is daring, risky and different as well as sounded mature, deep and carrying a punch.

Arguably for me the moment u2 best meshed together all their different leanings.

Also think it is criminally under appreciated.

I voted for Pop, but Dirty Day made me feel bad about it.
