Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (8/5/93, p.63) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...startling....a daring, imaginative coda to ACHTUNG BABY....it works brilliantly..."
Spin (9/93, p.116) - Highly Recommended - "...U2 is bidding to up the ante on its new freedom....ZOOROPA indicates U2 might be worthy of whatever absurd mutations the '90s throw our way..."
Entertainment Weekly (12/31/93, p.115) - Ranked #1 in Entertainment Weekly's list of 'The Best & Worst Records Of 1993' - "...[U2's] attempt to make sense of their place in pop and the world at large is downright heroic...."
Entertainment Weekly (7/9/93, p.46) - "...a harried, spontaneous-sounding, and ultimately exhilarating album on which the world's greatest arena guitar band rarely sounds like itself...For an album that wasn't meant to be an album, it's quite an album..." - Rating: A
Q (1/94, p.86) - Included in Q's list of 'The 50 Best Albums Of 1993' - "...U2's most adventurous outing yet...."
Q (8/93, p.99) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...here is U2, the foremost rock 'n' roll band on the planet, seeing if rock can be fashioned from sonic technology....ZOOROPA refines the first steps in this attempt that ACHTUNG BABY took....the results transcend the merely experimental..."
Q (8/94, p.115) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...It's stronger than its parent ACHTUNG BABY..."
Melody Maker (7/3/93, p.28) - "...after a decade of intermittently looking and sounding crap they've got both the image and the music right...."
Musician (9/93, p.76) - "...by no means a stopgap project, ZOOROPA ranks among the band's best work to date..."
Village Voice (3/1/94, p.5) - Ranked #9 in the Village Voice's 1993 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.
