Nine Inch Nails: Hesitation Marks
Buy! - (Columbia)
The latest album from Trent Reznor & co. is a sleeker, somewhat more minimalist take on their aggressive industrial-pop, toning down the abrasive guitars and frenetic attack in favor of a more moody, synth-oriented sound with intricate rhythms, confessional lyrics and lots of potent song hooks. Better yet, this consistently strong set of songs adds up to their finest album in quite a while. 8/30/2013 - Don Yates
