"Perhaps not their best album, I'd reserve that for Achtung Baby, but for me it is by far their most fun. It sparked a huge tour, produced the coolest collectibles, had great music videos and always provides the soundtrack to my summer."
"Some of the ideas we started out with on Achtung Baby started to come into focus on the tour as we played around with the new stage set, the TV screens, the whole concept of a TV station on the road. It struck a chord in us and the music that came out on Zooropa was very influenced by the tour. Normally it's the other way around; you put an album together and then you go off on the road and you're drawing from the album for your inspiration."
