Aw man... That's tough.  Pop was around the time of my first U2 concert, and I believe it has some of Bono's best lyrics ever.  But Zooropa is just a TRIP, and I love that there's so many different kinds of songs in one album.  So, gotta flip a coin on this one........ Wow, Pop actually won, haha!  Just realized that those two albums are neck and neck in the poll - it really is a tough choice.

Zooropa, son of Achtung Baby or father of Pop?

Ha!  Good thought there, although I would put it differently.  I'd say it's the same dude for all three, but at different, progressive stages of life and thought.  Same dude -but one snapshot is his "wild oats" stage (and the relational fallout thereof), another his is postmodern/existentialist stage in the wake of the disorientation that ensued from his wild oats stage, and the third is the jaded/dissilluioned result after the existentialist stage didn't satisfy his angst.  Same dude.    But it's okay, because he recovers and matures and tells you about it on ATYCLB!!

Zooropa has the title track, Lemon, The Wanderer and Stay. So that settles it. No contest.

But I can understand people who "love" Pop. I have friends who love Pop. There's nothing wrong with that. ;-)

so my dad bought Pop in 97 when i was 16, i was obsessed with it and dove into the U2's back catalouge immediately. Then i feel MORE in love with Zooropa.

Pop has slightly more appeal to me as a whole, though the more I think about it the more I am unsure about that.

Wow....such a difficult vote. Both are amazing from an incredible era but Pop wins by a nose. I was absolutely blown away upon its release.

I don't know what you Pop people are smoking, but I don't want any:

Zooropa v. Discotheque
Zooropa

Babyface v. Do You Feel Love
Zooropa

Numb v. MoFo
Zooropa

Lemon v. If God Will Send His Angels
Zooropa

Stay v. Staring At The Sun
Zooropa
(This is getting ugly)

Daddy's Gonna Pay v. Last Night On Earth
Pop
(Streak ends! There's a chance!)

Some Days v. Gone
Pop
(Look out! Pop's hot!)

The First Time v. Miami
Zooropa
(Uh-oh)

Dirty Day v. Playboy Mansion
Zooropa

The Wanderer v. Velvet Dress
Zooropa
(OUCH)

And I'll give Pop an extra win for having two extra songs, but Hold Me, Thrill Me and Slow Dancing count for Zooropa.

So I am going to score this one 9-3, Zooropa. That's a rout.

Go home; you are drunk and your slip is showing. :)

I am kidding of course, but if you had taken Playboy Mansion over Dirty Day, I think might have spewed my coffee all over my screen. :)

WHOA, did you seriously take Staring At The Sun over Stay? Are you OK? Blink twice if you are being held against your will! We need help in here! Crash cart, stat!
