Structure and sound of Boy


I'm editing the U2 pages on the dutch Wikipedia. I'm almost finished with the Boy album. I only need to do the ''Structure and sound'' part. But I think it's going to be a problem if I edit this part based on my own opinion, that's not objective, is it?

So, my question to you all is: could you describe the sounds of the songs of the album Boy?

Just like this:
I Will Follow is an 'optimistic' agressive song, etccccc.

You can also do this in keywords.

Thank you! :)

PS: I think I'm going to ask this also when I edit the other albums, so prepair yourselfs;)

Weekend Wrangle

Wow, I didn't realize you all would have so many opinions on hair! It seems Adam and Bono made the most mistakes, with Monkee Edge thrown in for good measure, and Larry... well his hair hasn't changed much over the years. Just Baby!Larry, FacialHair!Larry, and Mullet!Larry (which you couldn't mention).

A lot of fans were disgruntled with the decision to release U218. Me? I was a sucker and bought the deluxe edition, the video collection, and just for good measure, my mother got me the single-disc edition for Christmas. Fan much?
While I understand the idea of trying to pull in all the new fans that jumped on the HTDAAB bandwagon, yah, it was still a cash move. Under that logic, there should be some sort of "best of" release after EVERY album, and that would be just silly. So, businessmen as well as musicians, in the end it was probably a very smart release on U2's part, and hey... we got two new songs out of it.

Your wrangle this weekend... you get to be a part of the decision making process to release U218 (just jump back a coupla months, eh?). Unfortunately, as the Sweepstakes "Help U2 Become Richer" Winner, you only get to veto one track and add one other. What do you nix? What do you add?
