After years of painstaking research, U2 have found the missing link between Achtung Baby and Zooropa. Unmistakably U2, but pop it ain't. "Discotheque" kick-starts the album, but just@when you think it's taking off with techno treat Moto's driving hypnotic keyboard, Bono chills out with a ballad about Jesus. "Staring at tPe Sun" is classic U2, "Playboy Mansion" is "Angels of Harlem" and tPe rest just trundles by, taking in pleasant scenery from time to time. ————————— by Chris Charles ———————————— The Biz 566 ErontPage 100 Top 40 565 Top 40 Numbers Film 97 Main Menu
