Initially intended to be just an EP, Zooropa became a full-fledged album with 10 tracks recorded in six-weeks, the fastest U2 album ever. Interesting releases from around the world included two Australian sets of 2 x 5" CD packs. The first 2 x 5" CD pack included a copy of the Stay (Swing Format) single as the 2nd bonus CD. Virgin Megastore in Adelaide also released the Even Better Than the Real Thing single as their 2nd bonus CD. In Germany, Universal released a 2-CD box set with a copy of both Achtung Baby and Zooropa.

Zooropa reached No.1 in the following countries: Australia, Italy, Sweden, Austria, France, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, New Zealand, the UK, Canada, Holland, Norway, the US, Denmark, Ireland, and Iceland. Zooropa stayed on the charts for 61 weeks in Ireland. It peaked at No.2 in Finland, Portugal, and Spain while reaching No.3 and No.10 in Belgium and Hungary, respectively. In the US, the album was certified multi-platinum by RIAA with 2 million units sold.
U2 won a Grammy for Zooropa as the Best Alternative Album of the Year and the readers of Rolling Stone voted it Best Album. In the US, it was certified platinum by the RIAA.

Hi again ;-) Now i have the purple record from Zooropa, and it`s very very silent and with no dynamic on it :-( And on the second side at the end the Alarm is missing!!! The only possitive is the wonderfull purle colour of these pressing, all other is terrible (but these has no cracles like all other colour records!!!!!)

I will tell you why this is album is worth all the way - "The Wanderer", with Johnny Cash,
and of course, Flood production. To me, the most interesting U2 album.
The rest of their discography I just ignore. Never liked U2 that much.

HEY DEEJSMOKE - You are right! I have the red, white, green, golden and pink one of the "Colour Bootleg Collection" from Zooropa, and ALL are terrible from the sound quality!!! The golden one ist the "BADEST"............ The original one is better, but not so dynamic and very "silent", but much better than all the boots.........

Nice album from a great band. But the most remarkable on this album is the.....title! One of the most apocalyptic words.....This is ZOOROPA!

Just purchased the pink vinyl 2010 re-issue. It sounds terrible. Does anyone have any information about how the 2010 version was pressed? A lot of sound detail has been lost, especially on the top end. This is my favorite U2 album. I would LOVE if the band decided to undertake
an official remaster of this album.

Just purchased the 2010 unofficial reissue of Zooropa on pink vinyl. I love this album. The sound quality of this copy is terrible. Does anyone have information about how the reissue was pressed, or have good/bad sounding copies of their own? Thanks.

I don't know about other versions of this LP, but this European one is pretty bad. I just got one and it seems to be suffering from too many tracks with too fine grooves, especially on side one. Plays with a lack of clarity and skips occasionally only to self recover and play through. This came out when vinyl was dying and if the pressing quality here is any indication of the quality of the time period, then it needed to die and be reborn. Time for a proper 180g+ rerelease. This album especially has a lot of long quiet sections and requires a good clean pressing.

Any opinions on the best pressing of this album on vinyl? Any pressings to particularly avoid?
