Between The Lines
"The post-ZOO TV U2 seem like the perfect musical amabassadors for Hollywood's third installment of the Batman saga, BATMAN FOREVER. Just like Bruce Wayne, they are so constantly play-acting (is he Bono or is he The Fly?) that "reality" seems to veer with perspective; and just like original director Tim Burton's Gotham City, U2 now exists in a vacuum driven by old vices and new technologies. So, "Hold me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me," the band's T-Rex meets SoulIISoul contribution to the album, holds up equally well as a U2 track and as the film's theme, exploring the dualities of superficial contentment and inner turmoil."
