What's heavier? An African or a European swallow?

Imagine being a U2 fan at this time. You're expecting another Rattle and Hum and you hear the first notes of The Fly.

A month later you buy the record and you hear that Intro Guitar for Zoo Station. If only I could've live those moments...

I lived those moments. While a few of us enjoyed the excitement of the new sound, many U2 fans were turned off by it.

I bet they were dissapointed. I bet some of them even shrugged it off as a "one-album" only phase.

No, I loved it. AB is my favorite album of all time.

Zooropa kinda turned me off, though I've always considered the title track genius.
