Jeez... why all the love for Zoo Station? It's nowhere near as good as it gets credit for on this forum  ::)

Oh but it is!

Oh and the fact you voted ABOY over ISHF, Angel of Harlem, etc. made me tilt my head sideways.  :D

No attack on your person song opinion though  :)

Zoo Station's totally not the best song on Achtung Baby, but it's hard to ignore an intro that great.

Zoo Station is way too over-hyped. It kick-starts Achtung Baby very well indeed, but it doesn't really go anywhere and I find it bland and uninteresting. There are many more songs, on AB especially, that deserve to be held in a higher regard.

All Because Of You rocks harder than Zoo Station and let's face it, ZS was exactly as its acronym states (zzz...)  on the Vertigo tour against ABOY  ;)

It may rock harder, but I just didn't like the song at all in general. It's in my bottom 5.

Which is exactly how I feel about Zoo Station (although it's not in my bottom 5).
