The majestic POP album

It's 11.26 in London, I'm at work, and I wish I was listening to the fucking excellent POP album!!
It is truly majestic and in my opinion they acheived everything they set out to. The whole mood, atmosphere, groove of the album is spot on. So mamy layers! Peeling off the flashy, illuminous surface you uncover the darkest of all U2 albums, it blows me away everytime!
In my opinion the real masterstroke was Wake Up Dead Man!! What a way to end an album!!!!

They far from suck, but they're far from being the creative risk-taking force that would put out diverse and interesting albums from one moment to the next without sacrificing their soul to clearchannel and integrity for airplay and grammy awards.

I put Pop up there with UF, flawed but great. Next step down from JT and AB, but far in front of u2-by-the-numbers of HTDAAB

yet another pop love fest, along with the old "U2 arent as good as they were" people trying to tell me i HAVE to think that certain albums are more creative than others,

pop is a great album, but creative? all the band done was follow the electro rock of the 90's,

Woohoo, a threadful of people who prefer POP over HTDAAB. Strange, it feels like I just came home.

*starts humming; If you wear....

It is a very underrated album. It could be my second favorite, behind Achtung Baby.

Honestly i don't understand these kind of comment when i think about If God will send his angel, Staring at the Sun, If you wear that velvet dress or Wake up Dead Man ... which form 1/4 of the album.
Maybe you should explain me what's electro rock of the 90's, but personnaly I find in POP as many quite songs as trully rocking songs (or even electro songs).

(And I love it )

It's 11:39 AM in the heartland of America and I'm at school and not listening to Pop.

But it is probably the greatest album ever.

It's a very good album no doubt. Their last great record, what a ridiculous suggestion.

Certainly the last album to be completely disowned by U2 though...

HTDAAB is a great album, but I would put Pop above JT.

More sexual (well it bloody turns me on), experimental, personal. I think the band were going through some personal problems at the time, especially after the long Zoo tv tour. I think it's very raw and personal.
