Do You Feel Loved: meh

MOFO: ouch....arrggghhh...oh....

If God Will Send His Angels: love it, except for the zooming angel sound effects

Staring at the Sun: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

The Playboy Mansion: yearning...aching...oohhh...oh

If You Wear That Velvet Dress: beautiful and achingly boring at the same time

What about Please and Wake up Dead Man?! :)

Hey Lion, See the final post, I was editing it as I listened tomeach song.

There is something truly soulful about Pop, yet also bits that I can barely bare to listen to.

I think my opinion is clouded by retrospect. I pretty much disengaged from popular music in the 90's and am only really getting to know Pop now, out of it's historical context. It is strong and soulful and uncomfortable and grating...hence, fo me, a mixed bag. Perhaps I'm missing the overall feel of the album, seeing the parts but not the whole? I suspect that if I could bare to listen to it more it would become one of my favourites...

Hey kastee! Thanks for this song-by-song review! I can only hope you'll get to know and love POP better. This album is really worth it. Even if I prefer Zooropa :P

LOL, go for it! I Would love to get your insight into WHY you and others prefer Zooropa.

Pretty much my favourite U2 albums at the moment are:

1. TUF (ok, so this hasn't changed since 1984)

2. ATYCLB

3. undecided between SOI+, HTDAAB, NLOTH, Pop, War
