Yes. The first time I ever heard that, I almost couldn't believe what I was hearing. Highlight of the album for me. Maybe even the first 2 albums.

But I'm planning on listening again to hopefully make myself like the album! It's been quite awhile since I've listened to it in full.

Every time I listen to it these days, it honestly gets closer and closer to UF in my opinion. Such a strong, consistent debut with some of their best tracks, and definitely one of the best post-punk albums ever made. It's really stood the test of time and the test of over-playing for me. I'm trying to remember the last time I listened to a U2 album in full that was not called Boy or UF and I can't remember.

I know I'm going to be disappointed but I want Another Time, Another Place to be one of Boy's representations.

Really really tough, I love all these songs, but A Day Without me only came to life when played live, especialy later with ITABTAW.

One of the best U2 segues, and on paper it doesn't even seem that plausible.

One of my pipe dreams is that they would do that again one day. Emphasis on "pipe dreams".

The Ocean gets points from me for referencing one of my favorite books.

The Brick-A Day Without Me sequence is awesome.

Take your two puffs and pass, mate...I wanna believe in this one too!


Oh, and Bono's guitar playing on this one is pretty cool too..even if it's just a coupla chords...he's playing a Strat, which is badass in itself.

Jesus christ, I wonder how many more people here similarly had not listened to Boy in quite awhile when they recently voted it out to the benefit of other, lesser, albums! Good grief!
