4 stars is fair.,
This review is from: October (Audio CD)
This is a fantastic and under-rated album (although not on this website!). October has a good mixture of spiritual contemplative songs and the anthemic tunes they became synonymous with. The Edge's guitar is great, amazing how early his unique style was set. I actually heard Gloria first on Under a Blood Red Sky (also great), and Bono's rallying call at the beginning still puts shivers down my spine. What a great showman he was and still is. I stopped listening U2 in my 20's as I got a bit sick of them, but as I'm revisiting their early albums I'm really appreciating how dynamic and melodic they were back then. This album and also boy, both stand up to today's music.
A great line in the song Rejoice -
"I cant change the world, but I can change the world in me".
Hmmm? Oh well, we only had a few years wait till Bono started!!!
