Pop is the ninth studio album by Irish rock band U2. It was produced by Flood, Howie B, and Steve Osborne, and was released on 3 March 1997 on Island Records. The album was a continuation of the band's 1990s musical reinvention, as they incorporated alternative rock, techno, dance, and electronica influences into their sound. Pop employed a variety of production techniques that were relatively new to U2, including sampling, loops, programmed drum machines, and sequencing. POP entered the US charts at No 1. It also reached the top spot in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Finland, Holland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Hong Kong, Poland, Australia, Germany, France, New Zealand, Canada, Austria, Belgium, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Argentina, Chile, Czech Rep. Iceland and Greece. In Ireland it stayed on the charts for 46 weeks The CRIA certified it Triple Platinum in Canada. Other accolades saw Pop grab a nomination for a Grammy for Best RockPop Album and being voted the No. 1 Album and Album Sleeve in the Hot Press reader's poll. U2 are al. Pop never had the chance to be properly finished. It is really the most expensive demo session in the history of music. But during the course of the PopMart Tour they made heroic efforts to fix the thing, releasing new mixes of the songs as singles and fiddling with the live arrangements as the tour progressed. To be clear, were not saying here that Pop is a bad album. We love it. The poster has proudly hung in this writers childhood bedroom for the past 20 years. This is just a way to hear what it may have sounded like had U2 had a little more time to work on it. Discothèque 2002 Mix. PART 23 Documentary about U2's Pop album and Popmart tour. Bono and Larry give an interview in the disco bus. MTV Europe, March 1997. VHS , which turns 20 on Friday March 3, is unequivocally U2s most neglected album - virtually none of has been played live in the last 15 years - and is ultimately the venerable groups most undervalued. By U2s lofty standards, the album marked a commercial crisis, barely squeaking out platinum status in the U. and underselling its adventurous predecessors Achtung Baby and Zooropa worldwide though the PopMart tour still made a cool at 170 million at the box office.
