Tremendous first half,
This review is from: Zooropa (Audio CD)
Issued after 'Achtung Baby', 'Zooropa' had something to live up to. It doesn't quite do that, bur that's not to say that it's a bad album.
In fact, the first half is as good as anything, U2 ever did. The title track, 'Numb' (with The Edge on vocals), Lemon and Stay (Faraway, So Close) all stand out.
Unfortunately, the second half loses momentum, although it has some interesting elements such as the collaboration with Johnny Cash on 'The Wanderer'. But as a whole, it is still a worthy addition to the catalogue and a more adventurous and interesting album than most of the band's post-'Zooropa' output.
