I really could go on, but the point is that U2 got extremely funky with this album, and it really worked. It's so unusual, it's a trip worth taking again and again.
The album takes a while to lift off with the interference intro of Zooropa but once those familiar Edge style licks rear their head out of the chaos, its pure heaven. The song Zooropa comes in 3 stages - the long intro (as mentioned), then a slow dreamy journey followed by a punchy finale. Its a great song and the only time I've heard it played live was at Wembley in London during the Zooropa leg of the ZooTV tour.
Babyface is a grower. A cheaky little number you might say!
Numb - forget it, this song sucks chunks big time throwup. I dislike this song with a passion. When they played it at the gig I attended, I wanted to grab that big remote control of Bonos and point it at Edge!
Lemon - This may be the best song on the album. Fantastic and highly addictive. Its one of those songs that gets under your skin and you NEED to hear it!
Stay - This song is already a legend. Brilliant! Nuff said.
Daddy's Gonna Pay... - A really great industrial drumming experience. This song was brilliant live.
Some Days Are Better... - and some songs are better also. Great bass though - it really vibrates the speakers!
The First Time - Emotional, mood-driven and hypnotic. I do wish someone would have handed Bono a kleenex and some vicks though - he needs to clear his nasal passages. 'I have bany bansions...' etc
Dirty Day - This is more like the U2 we know and love. This song is a more up-to-date Exit. Same formula - also see New York. Still, its a great song.
Wanderer - I didnt get this to start with.Read more ›
