"The emotion of the event was palpable. I had been studying abroad the past year and this was my first(and so far only) u2 concert outside of the United States. Bono's father had just been buried and his vocals were extremely emotional."
"It is very unique. It's praise of God caught on record, pure outpouring of the heart. It is trying to express the ineffable and this attempt fills me with joy."
I'm one of the annoying "religious fans." U2's music and story have played a huge role in my Christian faith ever since I sobbed at the computer lab listening to "Surrender' and prayed to God during my first semester of college in 1997. My favorite albums are eclectic..from War to October to AB to No Line to SOE to Pop. I'm on the politically conservative side of u2's fanbase, but for the most part I can get behind most of the band's message.
"It's an odd record and a favourite of mine. It was kind of quirky, it didn't have any of the big U2 anthems on it, it was very much a record that grew out of the studio sessions. I think the opening, 'Zooropa' itself, it absolutely mesmerising."
