U2: Zooropa (1993)

u2 zooropaBy Scott Goldfine

Ireland’s top export, rock quarter U2, has graced its fans with a quick follow-up to 1991’s wildly successful and highly praised “Achtung Baby.” Embracing the experimental penchant embodied by the Talking Heads, the band continues to stray from its early sound, exploiting technology to stretch the boundaries of rock.

Despite minimal arrangements, U2 continues to mold memorable melodies.
