Wow, I can't believe these two are tied at the moment! I truly do love Zooropa, but honestly thought POP would win by a mile. Very cool. I voted for POP, but this is an amazing tie-score!

this is like choosing between Pop vs Pop, as I chose the latter in that vote.  This one ill go with Zoo because well it has Zoo on it but tomorrow it may be Pop because it is there best album

Zooropa would probably place somewhere in my top 5 but it doesn't compete with Pop, which is my favorite U2 album.

I had to vote for Pop (2 votes ahead now!). That album had such a deep impact on me as a 14 year old boy, I've spent the last 20 years trying to find music that gives me the same buzz that Pop gave (and still gives) me and nothing else compares (though to be fair, some bands have come very close over the years!).

I do LOVE Zooropa though, particularly the title track, Lemon, Some Days, Dirty Day and The Wanderer. I still remember the first time I heard the album though and it was a definite WTF moment  :o My first U2 album purchase was 'Rattle And Hum' and I was impressed enough as a young boy to investigate further so I borrowed 'Zooropa' from my local library- The album artwork and the music really confused me at the time, where had the cowboy hats gone and why was Bono singing about washing up liquid? It makes a lot more sense now though  ;)

I voted for Zooropa.  It is such a fine piece of experimental work.  I love the risk taking, the packaging, the themes, and the songs.

Zooropa and Pop are both my favorite U2 albums, it really depends on the mood I'm in. Zooropa has an ambient and more comfortable sound than Pop, but Pop has arguably slightly stronger lyrics and themes, in my opinion. It's a little grittier as well.

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.



Someday before they hang it up for good, I'd like to hear U2 do those two back-to-back live.
