1- Gloria. Top 10 track for me.  WHEN Edge comes in at end is sonic bliss.

2- Rejoice - Early prototype for some of the big anthems that followed.  Underrated.

3 - October - was gonna go for Tomorrow, but the songcraft is incredibly mature for 1981.

I need to play through this album a few more times to get more familiar with it, but I know that I can't get enough of I Fall Down. I LOVE the piano introduction, and the live version from the album's deluxe edition release is excellent.
