Boy's overrated.  It only gets a good press because it their debut and is considered 'youthful.'  No Line has more quality IMO.

More quality, yes. I still prefer Boy, and THAT was the op's question.  ;)

Another close one as these are probably numbers 2 and 3 for my least favorite U2 albums.  I'll pick Boy because it has at least one good song.
