"...The band's maiden effort with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois is not quite art rock per se -- passages of Boy are much closer to Pink Floyd than anything on this album -- but the rich textures, impressionistic tableaux, and cinematic landscapes (see "A Sort of Homecoming" or the title track) all served to distance U2 even further from their post-punk peers.
