I can't say the same for Numb or Stay though.
Name one thing wrong with the mixing and I will tell you it isn't a problem with the mixing.

You'll probably give up on mine before you even hit parts you may like.

The vocals are bad sure. But the mixing is atrocious. That chorus should have such power ... and doesn't. At all.

My stance on Zooropa:

Love:
- Zooropa
- Lemon
- The Wanderer

Like:
- Numb (love if we go by the Best Of Mix)
- Stay (love if we go by full band live)

Alright:
- Some Days Are Better Than Others
- The First Time
- Dirty Day (best track on the album if we go by the live version)

Don't like:
- Daddy's Gonna Pay

Absolute rubbish:
- Babyface

Maybe it's mixed well.... but the problem lies within the equilization. Everything is horribly mid-rangey. I generally lump EQ and mixing together, since it's the job of the mixer to deal with that.

*facepalm* The Wanderer. I keep forgetting that's on Zooropa. I first heard it on a Johnny Cash mix CD from a friend, so I don't associate it with U2. To me, it's Cash.
