October feels like a roadmap for how to get from Boy to the three albums that followed while still very much a post-punk album with its own identity. You can hear the martial drums and punch of War on I Threw a Brick and Rejoice, the atmospherics of TUF on Scarlet, the sweeping desert vistas of TJT on Stranger in a Strange Land. I can't say that I come back to it as frequently as I do for many other U2 albums, but it's still in my "very much enjoy" tier.
