if you liked Pop you'll like....(fill in blank)
« on: July 10, 2018, 10:47:57 PM »
so a lot of us hunger for music that sounds like 90's U2, what releases would you say have gotten close to that sound energy style whatever? the only one i can say reminds me of Pop in anyway would be Bowie's Earthling, i know somebody on @U2 said Madonna's Ray of Light, it does somewhat. I bought Howie B's 97 offering Turn the Dark Off cuz how could THAT not sound just like Pop. Yea no such luck.

what say you?

Also a band called the Music only have a few CDs in the early 2000s out but very pop U2

Another Iíd mention is Oleander and Tonic all early 2000s stuff

Maybe even try Chris Cornellís Euphoria

Non of the above come as close as DM well maybe the Music but all have Pop elements

Ava Adore by the Smashing Pumpkins.  Flood produced the album Adore the year after Pop, and you can hear lots of similarities in this track.

All good choices,  i love Bowie's 'Heathen' album from 2002.  I have no idea if it sounds remotely like PoP or not to be honest,  but it is my favorite Bowie album at the moment.  Blackstar would probably second.

Hadn't listened to Pop in years until i got the vinyl in the mail.  Nice refresher, but still nothing that really grabs me as much as my favorites by u2.  If it were an album by another band, i wouldn't bother.
