This review is from: October (Audio CD)
One reviewer describes "October" as "underwhelming". I disagree. As soon as "Gloria" bursts through the speakers you know you are onto a good thing. I'll admit that "I Fall Down" and "I Threw a Brick" are a little dull (with better versions on the bonus disk); but the rest of the album is first class - one of their best five albums in my view.
This remastering gives a slightly richer, fuller, sound and clearer vocals, but it is not a massive improvement in the original. The bonus disk is a revelation, with energetic live tracks; a fantastic BBC session and some rare tracks. It is every bit as enjoyable as the original album.
If, like me, you think that U2 did their best work in the 1980's, this is a very enjoyable purchase.
