"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."

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
