"The band's desire to bring the whole PopMart extravaganza to this city following the siege, not scaling things back but giving it their all, makes it a favorite - Bono's voice issues included. "You got to give it away(!)""
"Every song is a gem. It reinvented U2 and took them into their best era. I love how it is both flippant and intense, with the title, cover, and even the musical influences masking the dark interior of love gone wrong and hypocrisy exposed."
"So many of the songs on Pop are almost but not quite there. 'The Playboy Mansion' was originally called 'Hymn To Mr Universe'. It was supposed to be a Pop Art anthem but its contemporary references work against it."
- Bono on The Playboy Mansion
