5.0 out of 5 stars This album has 12 songs not 11, November 23, 2004
Important is not listing the 12th song on this album the great "Fast Cars"

U2 has become a band that is definetly comfortable in it's own skin...but that doesn't mean that they are not still capable of writing beautiful tunes...the standouts for me are the gorgeous

"Crumbs From Your Table","Original of The Species"..the powerful "All Because of You" and perhaps the best tune on the album the experimental Morroccan-tinged "Fast Cars" ..the only mistep on this album is the song "Yahweh"....which is a bit overbearing and sounds a little too much like "Miracle Drug"....but this album is definetly an improvement over the last album "All That You Can't Leave Behind."

5.0 out of 5 stars U2's most underrated album!, February 26, 2001
This review is from: October (Audio CD)
OCTOBER is a classic album in the sense that it captured U2 at a crossroads;dealing with questions of faith and spirituality.The album showed U2's raw,vulnerable and emotional state of mind;the music providing a haunting background for the lyrical questions presented.Musically,a much more mature U2 surfaced from the innocence of the BOY album.Listening to OCTOBER in the new millenium,I am amazed by how far ahead of the curve this U2 album was compared to the other music out at that time (circa 1981).This album is full of unbridled passion.
