U2's 'Message': Music

April 28, 2001

We have read Robert Hilburn's reviews for years and have usually agreed with his views. His review of U2 was favorable ("All That U2 Can't Leave Behind," April 25), but does everything have to have a message before he likes it?

He did not once mention the simple fact that these four guys absolutely rocked the place. Forget the lyrics and messages for a change and listen to the music. The music is what makes concerts memorable, not the lyrics. These guys are better now as a unit than they ever were. There isn't a group that touches them.
