October is the second studio album by Irish rock band U2. It was released on 12 October 1981 by Island Records, and was produced by Steve Lillywhite. The album was lyrically inspired by the memberships of Bono, the Edge, and Larry Mullen Jr. in a Christian group called the "Shalom Fellowship", and consequently it contains spiritual and religious themes

October, originally with the working title of Scarlet, was released in the summer of 1981. In several countries, October was re-issued on 5" CD in March 1996 as part of the Island Master series. This Island Masters re-issue featured higher quality paper and extra pictures from the original LP's inner sleeve. The fact that the first album had a bit of success in America meant that the band toured over there for a long time to do the groundwork. When they came back and it was time to do the second album, nothing was ready! ' Steve Lillywhite in Propaganda 5. Release Date: 12 октября, 1981.

October does, however, nearly match its predecessor on several songs. Tomorrow" is a beautiful ballad that gives Bono a chance to show his range, and nods to the band's homeland with its use of yearning Uilleann pipes, while the title track is a spectral, slow song that, unusually for U2, is grounded by a piano. Elsewhere, "Scarlet" is essentially an instrumental, the only lyric being Bono's repetition of the word "Rejoice", one of a handful of vaguely religious references on the album. October wasn't an affirming hit and, by its own admission, the band felt pressure to deliver on its third album, believing Island could cut them loose if it bore similar results.

This album has an average beat per minute of 132 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 86/170 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page. Album starts at 146BPM, ends at 158BPM (+12), with tempos within the -BPM range. Try refreshing the page if dots are missing).

October is the second studio album by Irish rock band U2. in a Christian group called the "Shalom Fellowship", and consequently it contains spiritual and religious themes. Their involvement with Shalom Fellowship led them to question the relationship between the Christian faith and the "rock and roll" lifestyle, an.

The U2 album discography features a number of catagories, traditional full length albums are listed first, followed by notable EP releases. Following those are compilations such as U218. From there are reissues and remastered albums, albums which have been reissued since the 2007 anniversary of The Joshua Tree.

October is commonly dismissed as a sophomore slump. I'm not sure whether this is a reflection of anything wrong with the record or simply the fact that it has the misfortune of being a good album bookended by two explosively great albums. It breaks little new ground. The album where U2 decided to just be U2 again. They had to come home eventually; cynicism is exhausting, and gigantic lemons are a real hassle to lug around on tour.
