Even after 150 plays, it still feels strange. But Bono saves it, IMO. The lyrics resound with me.
I've never figured out why, but when I first got that album (in 8th grade) I always skipped Zoo Station. I think I really heard it again for the first time last time I listened to the album (last year) I think it freaked me out a bit as well

But that also might have something to do with the fact that I used to listen to Achtung Baby all the time while I was a stage hand during this play (back in 8th grade) and people would tell me stories about the auditorium being haunted, so now Achtung Baby just reminds me of those days in the haunted auditorium.

Not exactly the best music to listen to if you're freaked out. Especially Horses

Wouldn't work for me. Brian Eno gives me an upset stomach.

Well, yeah. All of these songs are about 1/30th as good in the studio. An unfortunate flaw most U2 albums carry.

Forget the 'r'. Americans love 'r' too much. The correct pronunciation of Melbourne (as in not just the correct pronunciation of my Melbourne, but the original Melbourne in Derbyshire) is Mel-bin.

I agree with you on this one too

I pointed out in a thread once that the 2nd track on all three of the 90s albums were about practically the same thing, and I dislike all three of them pretty much equally

"Take me higher"s...better live or in the studio? They sound great shouted, but the falsetto is so sleazy.

Ooooohhooooo

Ooooohhooooo

Ooooohhooooo

3 o'clock in the morning
It's quiet and there's no one around
Just the bang and the clatter as an angel runs to ground
Just the bang and the clatter as an angel hits the ground *cymbal*

"Zoo Station" is groovetastic. So groovetastic that Keane ripped part of it off in "Is It Any Wonder?" along with Achtung's next track.
