Never heard this before.
Doing that falsetto thing about 20 years before anyone else
...but I think it's their best album.
I saw them live at Celtic park for the zooropa tour, my first stadium gig, absolutely fucking brilliant!
It's one of my favourites!
The Wanderer is my go-to choice for Song To Play To People Who Think They Don't Like U2. Zooropa has a real cult around it these days.
and eno just nerded away on it in the studio while the band got pissed at the pub
That was probably more the Passengers album (which I also really like).
It got good reviews but everyone ignores it.
Stay (Faraway, So Close!) is the best song on that album (and one of their best songs).
But Zooropa has got better with time and it is now a really good listen for the most part. It totally threw me at the time though - I remember tuning in to yer radio 1 for the exclusive play of Numb with my U2-worshipping mate who was massively agog with expectation after the sonic juggernaut that was Achtung Baby. He was trying not to cry after a couple of minutes
Trim the playboy mansion and Miami and you've got a belter on yr hands.
Please->Wake Up Dead Man = omg
mostly by the bellends themselves
post-80s U2 >>>>> 80s U2
Love Achtung Baby, and most of Pop. Don't especially love Zooropa, but Numb is easily their best song. And that's saying something given that they've put out some absolute crackers.
It took Mrs S until the third track (numb/lemon/stay) to say "Are you playing U2?!" Because Lemon and Numb don't sound like U2 really. Isn't it the Edge singing them? That's my contribution to this thread, bye.
