I think a lot of fans found it to be hilarious too.

But, I think it was a turn-off for folks for an album right on the heels of Achtung.

As a fan, I understand what they were getting at. But, I could see how some more casual fans would dismiss the album because of something as silly as the K-Mart thing.

Well said. My favorite era for U2 music is definitely 1991-97, though I'm quite fond of 1979-84, as well. Particularly the single produced by Martin Hannett ("11 O'Clock Tick-Tock").

Nice to hear of someone else who digs L.A. punk and no-wave music. In a combination of the twain, might I suggest the L.A. no-wave band Monitor?

The issue Pop had with fans is that it wasn’t finished.
The issue Pop had with the public is that it was by U2 and released in 1997.
Neither of which make it a bad album, they just mean it never got a shot at reaching its potential.

Yeah, to me, it's one of those albums that always makes me want to start a dialogue on consumerism. But I have to say, it is strangely comforting too. Just kind of knowing that someone else sees all the propaganda and can sort of laugh at it.

I LOVE handle-bar mustache Edge!!
He looked SOO badass during this time. Hot.


And this album is really great. Took me a while to really appreciate the entire album..its flows soo well for me. I wouldve loved to have seen popmart.
