Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks

We always knew Nine Inch Nails would be back; Trent Reznor practically promised as much when he temporarily waved goodbye just four years ago. We just didn’t know they’d come back like this. On Hesitation Marks, Reznor and his crack handpicked team of collaborators (Lindsey Buckingham! Adrian Belew!) dig deep into the band’s old frustration-throb, but also into squiggly jackhammer-house and darkly forbidding synthpop and stiff-jointed funk and straight-up stadium rock. The resulting album captures all of Reznor’s old appeal and then finds a bunch of different new uses for it. It’s Reznor’s best album since The Fragile and the most profoundly satisfying return from an arena-bound legacy band in recent memory. –Tom [LISTEN]
