Should I buy October

October is the only U2 cd I do not own. The only song I know from it is Gloria. Is it worth buying?

Yes, definitely! I Threw A Brick, Fire, Tomorrow, October, and Scarlet are wonderful tracks. In fact, the whole album is great. Grossly underrated.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Yes, it is my least favorite album of theirs but still worth it. Gloria is great, but the song October is unbelievably beautiful. Also, Rejoice is one of U2's most straight up rockers and Tomorrow actually has bagpipes!

Yes, definitely. It may take a while to get used to the songs/style, but it's well worth it. As many others have said, the standouts are Tomorrow, October, and Fire

Yes...."Go-For-It"

The best tracks (besides "Gloria") are::

I Threw A Brick Through A Window ( Good Jammer )
Rejoice ( Excellent tune )
Fire ( Great rocker )
October (Mellow ballad)
Tomorrow ( Brilliant Tear-Jerker About Bono's mum's death )

Definitely...Go buy this LP...You'll love it!!

Yes, but don't expect too much from it and you might be pleasantly surprised.

It might be cliche`, but U2 are known for atmospherics and emotional punch when it comes to their music, right? Well, there's plenty of both on October. It's quite haunting. I think of it as the album that could have been. They were on their way to a masterpiece but it got a bit derailed. Still, there's plenty of beautiful music to be found on October.

It is very worth it. October is very underrated, particularly in this forum.

Buy the damn thing my friend, it may not be their most polished record, but it's still moving and for every egg they lay, there is still a few excellent songs on it.
