Zooropa really drops off and feels unfinished whereas POP is a bit more complete.

Wait, didn't you get the memo? The band decided after Pop wasn't successful in America that it, not Zooropa, was "unfinished."  ;D

Lol I'm not saying POP isn't unfinished as well (as they admit), but it feels more considered and less improvised and patched together with snippets near the end like Zooropa does to me.

Well, Pop has "Staring at the Sun" so that does it for me.

Zooropa personally, although Pop has grown on me A TON. Once Zooropa got going it didn’t let up until the very end, while Pop has a few dips in quality. Also, Zooropa has a sound that carries throughout, while Pop doesn’t really have sound or theme, if you will, like their other great albums, and doesn’t flow as well as a cohesive project. Pop is great, but is more flawed than Zooropa

I just listened to Pop for the first time in a long while and forgot how much I enjoyed the album.  With that being said, I still like Zooropa a bit more than Pop.

I love both albums but I have to pick Zooropa because of The Wanderer and I can listen to it straight through.

Yeah I thought POP would be ahead based on the reverence it receives around here but I guess Zooropa holds it's own as well. Still pretty close.

I'm kind of new here so I'm not totally sure how to reply. I really enjoy both albums. However, Zooropa only has one song I love (stay). The wanderer, Lemon, Zooropa, and Dirty day are all very good songs. The rest of it is average at best. Pop has great songs, but If you wear that velvet dress, The playboy mansion and Miami are so bad they almost ruin the album for me.

I don't get how anyone can not love Velvet Dress. The lyrics, music, and vocal delivery are all brilliant. So slinky and dark.

yea VD <that doesnt sound good> is great, i kinda get the not like TPM but that was only recently that i just kinda started to feel that way. Miami is fine with me.

Zooropa is gold to me all the way through, even the songs people dont like, Numb Babyface etc, i love. I really really love them.
