Reseña de álbum

No matter which way you look at it, Pop doesn't have the same shock of the new that Achtung Baby delivered on first listen. Less experimental and more song-oriented than Zooropa, Pop attempts to sell the glitzy rush of techno to an audience weaned on arena rock. And that audience includes U2 themselves. While they never sound like they don't believe in what they're doing, they still remove most of the radical elements of electronic dance, which is evident to anyone with just a passing knowledge of the Chemical Brothers and Underworld. To a new listener, Pop has flashes of surprise — particularly on the rampaging "Mofo" — but underneath the surface, U2 rely on anthemic rockers and ballads. "Discotheque" might be a little clumsy, but "Staring at the Sun" shimmers with synthesizers borrowed from Massive Attack and a Noel Gallagher chorus. Similarly, "Do You Feel Loved" and "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" fuse old-fashioned U2 dynamism with a keen sense of the cool eroticism that makes trip-hop so alluring. Problems arise when the group tries to go for conventional rock songs, some of which are symptomatic of the return of U2's crusade for salvation. Pop is inflected with the desire for a higher power to save the world from its jaded spiral of decay and immorality, which is why the group's embrace of dance music never seems joyous — instead of providing an intoxicating rush of gloss and glamour, it functions as a backdrop for a plea of salvation. Achtung Baby also was a comment on the numbing isolation of modern culture, but it made sweeping statements through personal observations; Pop makes sweeping statements through sweeping observations. The difference is what makes Pop an easy record to admire, but a hard one to love.

Pop is the greatest album made by anyone ever.

Pop, the great underdog of U2 albums. Don't let the critics fool you - this album is genius. No, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's worth trying out. Any U2 fan should have it, of course. But even if you're not a U2 fan - try it out. It's a lot different than the U2 you hear on the radio. It's definitely U2's darkest album, but it's also probably their most rocking (along with Achtung Baby). The techno elements work well, but it's not a techno or dance album, it's a rock album. Mofo, Gone, and Please are some of the best songs U2 has ever done, and as an album it flows together perfectly. Pop was apparently an "unfinished" album, but I think this only adds to the overall effect. It's a shame that even U2 themselves seem to not like Pop, for you'll find that within the hardcore fanbase it's actually a favourite, and with good reason. Pop is perfect in its imperfection.

Unfairly Dissed

I first listened to Pop knowing full well that it was "the mistake", the album that ended U2 Mach II much in the same way that Rattle and Hum ended Mach I. That said, I found it to be a very underrated work which can easily stand it's own against the rest of the U2 catalog. It actually stands very uniquely in the catalog because it distances itself from the Achtung Baby/Zooropa sound by shining with a brighter polish where those albums were murky, and it also sets up All That You Can't Leave Behind quite nicely with that same polish. It has it's own unique sound, which is more than you can say for most other bands. Comparing Pop to other bands nearly 20 years into their careers, it's much easier to look highly on it. My personal favorite songs are "Please" and "If God Will Send His Angels", which is hauntingly beautiful, with honorable mentions for "Discotheque" and "Staring at the Sun".

THE MOST UNDERRATED WORK OF THEIR CAREER!!!!!

"Pop" is obviously the 1st album most will say "aahh---U2 lost their magic there." WRONG!!!!! Dead WRONG!!! This album blows apart with sound! People always say "oh this doesn't sound like U2" You'reright it doesn't sound like traditional U2, and that's the POINT! ya know what? IT'S GREAT!! U2 proved that they could actually pull of such a risky musical endeavor. Check out "Mofo," with incredible trance/ dance flavor or "Do You Feel Loved" with an awesome set of lyrics But of course "Discotheque" which is one of the coolest songs they've EVER done!!!! The record includes a great song called "Gone" that has an amazing progression throughout, and "If God Will Send His Angels" is absolutely beautiful! TRY it! You won't regret it!

U2 se convirtió en una de las bandas de rock & roll más populares de los 80, famosa tanto por su sonido contagioso así como por sus grandilocuentes discursos sobre temas políticos y religiosos. Fueron "cruzados" del rock & roll en una época en que reinaban el pop de sintetizadores y el heavy metal. La banda logró mantener su popularidad en los 90 reinventándose deliberadamente como irónico grupo de pop rock influenciado por el dance; y pudieron confirmar su status como una de las bandas más populares...
