iTunes Review

U2’s 1980 debut album announced a band with a distinctive sonic tone and major ambitions. Guitarist Dave “The Edge” Evans had his basic chiming attack in place, the rhythm section of bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. was capable of tense, propulsive motion, and singer Paul “Bono” Hewson knew how to scale the castle walls, mountainside, and whatever romantic terrain he needed to in order to reach the soulful aspirations of youth. And producer Steve Lillywhite ensured the band’s vision got to tape. “I Will Follow” was an immediate anthem, but the tight frisson of “An Cat Dubh,” the driving attack that alternates with moments of pastoral reflection in “Out of Control,” and the carefully placed dramatic guitar notes that chase “Stories for Boys“ make this a more than impressive debut.

Customer Reviews

Solid Debut, but not amazing.

Don't listen to this album expecting Achtung Baby or Joshua Tree. This album is good, don't get me wrong, but not even close to their best. Here's my song-by-song breakdown! 1) I Will Follow: 10/10 A very fun and addicting song that gets stuck in your head for hours! Takes prize as best song on Boy. 2) Twilight: 8/10 The lyrics are a little creepy, but still a great song. 3) An Cat Dubh: 9/10 Very mysterious and dark, almost sounds like something from Achtung Baby! 4) Into The Heart: 4/10 Seriously boring and pointless end to An Cat Dubh. If you are buying single songs, skip this one. 5) Out of Control: 9/10 A very fun, upbeat song that is refreshing after 8 minutes of a darker sound. 6) Stories for Boys: 7/10 An OK song that never really stuck out to me. 7) The Ocean: 4/10 A very boring and short song that I recommend skipping. 8) A Day Without Me: 8/10 Back to the upbeat style that Out of Control had. Unfortunatly, the song isn't as good. 9) Another Time Another Place: 6/10 Very forgettable. 10) The Electric Co: 9/10 A great song that is 2nd best on the album. 11) Shadows and Tall Trees: 7/10 One of the few upbeat ending songs on a U2 album. Just OK. Overall, this is a great album, until you realize that U2 has done much, much better.

Oh Boy!!!

Hands down the best U2 album!!!!!

Through a combination of zealous righteousness and post-punk experimentalism, U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands in the world -- equally known for their sweeping sound as for their grandiose statements about politics and religion. The Edge provided the group with a signature sound by creating sweeping sonic landscapes with his heavily processed, echoed guitars. Though the Edge's style wasn't conventional, the rhythm section of Larry Mullen, Jr. and Adam Clayton played the songs...
