It still nails plenty of the trick… More »

Trent Reznor Albums From Worst To Best

The first time I heard Nine Inch Nails, I was barely fourteen, hanging, unsupervised, with my friend at the time and his older brother — a “bad kid” judging by his pierced ear and Grateful Dead T-shirt. We sat on his dingy floor while he sparked a joint and asked us if we wanted to… More »

Outside Lands 2013 Saturday: Nine Inch Nails, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear, & More

Saturday at Outside Lands was a typical second day at festivals.

Nine Inch Nails – “Came Back Haunted”

Considering the insane scope of Trent Reznor’s influence, it’s actually kind of hard to remember precisely the sound that made him famous — sleazy, aggro, wounded industrial pop-metal — and the last time he wrote music in that style.

Trent Reznor Promises “Fucking Great” New Nine Inch Nails Album Coming This Year

When Trent launched Project: Retire NIN back in 2009, I watched him get emotional onstage at 2AM on a Bonnaroo night as he realized these were his last Nine Inch notes on American soil.
