Electric Co...got me hooked. Totally and completely hooked.
I was absolutely thrilled to get three songs from this album at my very first U2 show - SOI. THRILLED!
It's a great workout album.
Oh, heck, I could go on for quite awhile...

BIG SOUND !

Kudos to Steve Lillywhite for bringing that up. Boy produced by Martin Hanett would have been a very different beast.

A few classics here : I will follow, Electric Co...

My underrated gems are : Stories for Boys and Twilight.

Ive enjoyed The Ocean being played in 2018 very much.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

A Day Without Me
Twilight
An Cat
Electric Co
Another Time Another Place
The Ocean
Shadows and tall trees

Are among the finest songs of their career.

Oh man the transition between An Cat Dubh and Into the Heart. That's an all-time great U2 moment.
Heavy horses, move the land under me

Boy is the last U2 album I listened to, maybe a week ago.

I didn't think there was any room to grow on me after all this time, but it did.
