U2 – Zooropa


U2Zooropa Island CIDU29 (1993)

Much derided, yet this works well enough as furniture music.  It’s mostly passable filler of no real consequence, but “Zooropa,” “Numb,” and even “The Wanderer” manage to be better than anything on the offensively obnoxious Achtung Baby.  And, for what it’s worth, this album cover is sort of the epitome of a certain early 1990s aesthetic.
