"Zooropa is the sound of U2 becoming comfortable with a new recording recording environment. After the attrition of Achtung Baby, it was lear that this technology stuff was OK, it's not the Devil, it's not the enemy, we can work with it. Edge was exploring dance and hip-hop culture, club mixes, he was experimenting and U2 were his guinea pigs."

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
