Like Aardvark I can't claim to be a fan since the early days. But hey I'm going to answer it anyway.

I like the 80s stuff, and I also like Pop. I probably prefer the 80's stuff though.

i am a fan since summer 1983, when i saw them on the loreley-concert on german tv. i became a hardcore fan with PRIDE & TUF. then i got deep into TJT. the best part came in 1991 when the best album ever was released ACHTUNG BABY. beautiful music and stunning lyrics. then ZOOROPA, another great record but often unterrated. i love it!

HMTMKMKM in 1995. when i first listened to this killer song i thought Marc Bolan of T.Rex has revived out of his tomb. great song, great video!
nov. '95 Passengers OST 1. wonderful experimental album with some fine beautiful moments.

then POP in 1997 at the first listenings i loved it. but then suddenly i started to hate the album. after nearly 7 years of dislike i re-discovered the brilliance of POP. i must say i always loved MOFO, MIAMI, GONE. just yesterday i listened again over headphones and was just overwhelmed and blown away. what a great fuckin' album POP is!
all of U2s albums in the 90s were years ahead of their time.

in other words i love their 80s and 90s stuff, but i don't like their last two albums. compared to all their previous records ATYCLB(their weakest album) & HTDAAB are lame ducks.

I've been a fan since Gloria, and Pop is my favourite U2 album.

I've been a fan since 10th november 1979, the day when my mother decided to make my italian soul see the light in cold Germany..........
My older brother listened to them since Boy, I am grown up with U2, and Pop is definitely a U2 album that testifies theirs and my growth............................I always liked it, always will

Been a fan since 1984. Love Pop to bits. Think it's better than ATYCLB but slightly behind HTDAAB.

My mom's friend first saw U2 live in 1981...I have no clue how she feels about Pop though.
