Another Time, Another Place is tight

Why does no one ever talk about this song? It's a killer track. I love Edge's solo.

Boy...

It's not one of my favorites. I like the chorus, but Bono's voice bugs me.

When he sings "I'll be with you now," he sounds like he has a cold of epic proportions. Or something. It just sounds really weird to me.

hmm, Bono's voice doesn't really bother me, it sounds about like it does on all of Boy

this is kind of a creepy song. I love the atmosphere. All of Boy has it, but somehow this song comes across as particularly eerie, especially with Bono's gaelic vocals. The way he delivers it makes him sound posessed or something I suppose it gets lost in the awesomeness that is Boy (I mean, it's right before The Electric Co), but I really like it.

I agree

the first half of War is amazing, but the second half is pretty forgettable. U2's most lopsided album.

If we go by popularity of tracks then i'd say War wins easily, by virtue of SBS and NYD.

But Boy runs together so well. Its one of the few albums U2 albums i have no trouble listening to in its original tracklisting.

For a long time, I could really take or leave Boy. But around about the time the tour started up, I really listened to it for the first time in some years, and was surprised by how much I liked it.

Boy

LOve Another Time Another Place, but then I love Boy altogether. And yes, it's one of the only U2 albums I can listen listen to start to finish without skipping or changing the order.

Boy is magical. I think it is probably the only U2 album I have bought and loved from start to finish straight away. My exact words as it finished was "what a fucking awesome album!!" Very underrated.

Okay, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Seconds, New Year's Day, Like a Song, Drowning Man = pretty goodam flawless. And then you get The Refugee, Red Light, Surrender, Two Hearts Beat as One and 40. 40 and THBAO are great but...

Boy = Absolutely Fantastic... I'm tempted to say that a re-recording would be the wasp's patellae, but I may get shot down in flames, since it'll probably be overproduced and lose its magick.

I agree. It's better by a mile than War. The only War songs I listen to regularly are Two Hearts Beat As One and Like a Song. SBS is great, but there are many live versions that are better than the original track.

Boy is an amazing debut album. Really there isn't a bad song on it. The songwriting is pretty sophisticated given Bono's age and it flows so well. Edge was on fire even back then.

Another Time, Another Place wasn't a song I liked when I first got Boy, but it's grown on me a lot. It's the perfect track to build up to The Electric Co.

The only thing that brings the album down for me is Bono's vocals which were still pretty poor at this point.

War > Boy BTW. More variety, better vocals, production, instrumentation...etc. It almost sounds like a different band. I think Boy is overrated on interference and War is way underrated simply because one of those two albums is still fresh for many.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You....

I feel the same way. I could listen to this song over and over--and I have. Its slightly dark and meanecing and I like the 'driven-ness' of the sound.

The Refugee is fun but by no means a classic U2 track. Two Hearts and Surrender are good but overrated. Red Light sucks and 40 works much better as a live closer - on the album it's kinda meh.

but Boy is an amazing debut album and that sound I think has become very influencial. When I hear a band that sounds like U2, Boy is usually one of the albums it reminds me of (UF and JT are the other two common ones). But more than that, it's just an overall solid album. The only somewhat forgettable track is The Ocean, but I don't mind it much. The album needs a moment to breathe.
