Having been a teenager in the late 80s, I thought U2 could do not wrong. As I was coming of age as a music listener, they started expanding their sound by going to Berlin and getting more experimental. When they released Zooropa
(their best effort, imo), it felt like they would never falter. How wrong I was as shown by their follow up album Pop
. That said, it was not until their How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
album that they managed to execute complete garbage from start to finish. Unfortunately, things have barely improved since.
