Still sounds as good to me now as it did the first time I heard it

*waits for the wave of Pop-haters to descend on the thread*

i re-discovered POP and it has grown a lot on me during the last few weeks (after bashing for nearly 7 years). i still think that discotheque is too long. a shorter version would have been better imo. i've always liked MOFO, GONE, MIAMI & PLAYBOY MANSION. but now i see the power (drums) on DYFL and the (erotic) power of VELVET DRESS.
IGWSHA is a good song with a superb video (the intense colors and the great idea behind the parallel scenes in the diner)
still don't like SATS, LNOE & DISCOTHEQUE too much.

Jesus...8 years old and it still sounds more progressive than anything out there. That's a testament to a great record.

I like how it still sounds fresh... in fact there's alot of new music that has something from POP sound(production) in them realeased right now.
For example listen to the new Beck's song, the one with strange (but cool) CGanimated video... it sounds like being from POP.
That's probably the problem of U2, they always make music sounding diferent than enything at the time (in the 80's and in the 90s, it's a diferent story right now).
My guess is that POP was released exactly 8 years to soon. Released today it would be like almost everything out there (I mean those more ambitious bands not some JustinBrotneyUshers).
I remember the first (and for a long time the only) review of POP I ever read, it was something like: "...well U2 are already in 21st century and while the rest of the world still have to deal with SpiceGirls-and-BeckstreetBoys-like music and while most great bands (here he said something about Oasis and PearlJam) are slowly disapearing... we all should listen to this probaly (it was only March) the best album of the year. U2 are back and they're back with a great style. The rest of the music world should quickly follow them."
