Artist: U2
Genre: Rock/Pop
Release Date: July 1993

Review by Ken
3½ stars out of 4

Zooropa finds U2 delving deeper into the uncertain world of electronica that they first embraced on their 'Achtung Baby' record. Some critics may have found the band somewhat unused to such experimental sound-scapes; but U2 manage to pull it off admirably by producing some truly fine pop-rock tunes; including one of the biggest hits of their career with the achingly melancholic 'Stay (Faraway, So Close)'. U2 die-hards might long for the glorious rock-crunch of the band's 80's efforts like 'The Joshua Tree' and 'Rattle and Hum'; but even they will find the beautiful melodies here hard to deny.

Reader Feedback

A lot of people say that U2 did there best work in the 80's with the Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum, and what they have done in the 90's doesn't compare. I disagree with that. I think Auchtung Baby is as good as the Joshua Tree, and maybe better. I do of course love everything they did in the 80's but I have to say Auchtung Baby is my favorate.    --Chrisspy
