THE POP UP TENT - a thread of worship only
« on: January 24, 2021, 10:26:09 PM »
Iím starting threads where specific albums can be revered. Kicking off with three tonight, more to come during the next weeks.

So, whatís up with Pop?

What makes it special?

Which are the best songs?

The best lyrics?

The best riffs?

The best b-sides and remixes?

Do you have special stories about the album?

Did someone say POP?

I could go on forever about this album, but for now I'll just say BOOMCHA.
The end is not as fun as the start

Pop not having received the anniversary treatment, I figure there's some material left in the vault...... And I would pay good money for it.

It was a heavy mofo in all ways. When it comes to U2, heavy means good for me. It has aged very well, maybe the best of all their albums.

I doubt i would ever buy a u2 product again now, there is however an exception - The HK mixes or Pop unreleased stuff.
