Short intro

Zooropa - U2. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. Zooropa is the eighth studio album by Irish rock band U2. Produced by Flood, Brian Eno, and The Edge, it was released on 5 July 1993 on Island Records. Inspired by the band's experiences on the Zoo TV Tour, Zooropa expanded on many of the tour's themes of technology and media oversaturation. The record was a continuation of the group's experimentation with alternative rock, electronic dance music, and electronic sound effects that began with their previous album, Achtung Baby, in 1991.

U2 - Zooropa the New Album 1993 Comercial televisivo para UK promocionando el Nuevo Álbum de U2, Zooropa, el disco siguiente a Achtung Baby 1991. Picking up where Achtung Baby left off, Zooropa delves heavily into U2's newfound affection for experimental music and dance clubs. While the title track marries those inclinations to the anthems of The Joshua Tree, most of the record is far more daring than its predecessor. Zooropa stayed on the charts for 61 weeks in Ireland. It peaked at No. 2 in Finland, Portugal, and Spain while reaching No. 3 and in Belgium and Hungary, respectively. In the US, the album was certified multi-platinum by RIAA with 2 million units sold. U2 won a Grammy for Zooropa as the Best Alternative Album of the Year and the readers of Rolling Stone voted it Best charts. In the US, it was certified platinum by the RIAA. With Zooropa the results are far more satisfying: The album is a daring, imaginative coda to Achtung Baby 1991, U2s first unqualified masterpiece. Zooropa defuses the daunting commercial expectations set by that album while closing off none of the bands artistic options. It is varied and vigorously experimental, but its charged mood of giddy anarchy suffused with barely suppressed dread provides a compelling, unifying thread. The title track sets the tone from the very start. Released July 5, 1993. Zooropa Tracklist. Zooropa Lyrics. Babyface Lyrics. 乐队列表 Rock U2 Zooropa. Add an audio file. U2 : Zooropa

I believe this to be the last good U2 album. Moreover, whilst I've tried for years to enjoy Achtung Baby, this album grabbed me almost immediately. Whereas Achtung is widely considered among their best albums, Zooropa seems to occupy a lesser place. But to me, this album contains a greater number of really good, catchy songs, and seems to abandon a bit of the pretense of the former album.

Highlights for me are the rocking title track, Numb, Lemon (one of Bono's finest tributes to his mother), and Stay (a bit sappy, but I still like it). The album certainly runs out of steam over the final three or four tracks, but none of them are any worse or less interesting than most tracks on Achtung.

Unfortunately U2 could not (or would not) capitalize on the best parts of this album, and they'd return with the dreadful Pop. Things really went downhill from there.
