because we all know without those 2, U2 would end up playing at Holiday Inns across the country

discotheque=strong
do you feel loved = strong
mofo = strong
if god will send his angels = weak
staring at the sun = strong
last night on earth = strong
gone = strong
miami = weak
the playboy mansion = weak
if you wear that velvet dress = strong
please = strong
wake up dead man = strong

that is me being as critical as i can. i don't actually think miami or if god.. are weak, but to be super hard on the album, i believe that the percentage could only be argued that pop is at worst:

75% strong
25% weak

that is stronger than october and rattle and hum
i would even argue that that percentage is stronger than WAR (which i also love)

Haha... it's amazing how fast a thread about 90s U2 turns into an argument about Pop! Fans of the album continue defending it and the people who just don't see the brilliance continue starting shit! Basically same shit... different day!

Well, I love Achtung Baby now (although I still pronounce it Ach-tung (ach as in achoo)) so I just hope the Passenegrs, Zooropa and Pop make even better!

Even if POP was half brilliant and half average, it's better half is so much better than anything they've done since it's not even funny.

I guess most people here got into the band in that period and the 90's albums are their favourite ones.

I never understand why miami gets so much stick - admittedly on pop it was unfinished, but live it was fantastic.

the 90's were the time that U2 were that thing I love.......unpredictable!

they were getting off on playing with peoples idea of U2, and it was just one hell of a ride..

...never mind the fact that it was their best and most inventive music.

...also, they were techno savy at just the right time....90's was just the media-decade, and u2 were so on it, in every way....music, image, tours...

..kicked ass

You forgot the people who are capable of seeing both the strong and the weak parts of POP.
