Trent Reznor's side project How To Destroy Angels--formed with Year Zero/Ghosts henchman Atticus Ross, with Reznor's wife, the impossibly-named Mariqueen Maandig, as vocalist--has released its first EP today. It's a 6-track self-titled affair, lasting a little under 35 minutes, & it's tempting to start drawing comparisons with Nine Inch Nails, rather than face the music on its own terms. But, having said that, i wonder how possible it is to distance oneself from NIN, & not merely through Reznor's & Ross' involvement. While Reznor's voice is arguably the sine qua non in the multi-faceted NIN project, there's now a sizeable body of NIN material that is instrumental (most notably Ghosts, of course, as well as numerous other tracks, especially on Still), so there's something of an established 'non-Reznor' NIN soundworld. To some extent, first impressions would seem to declare that How To Destroy Angels' first EP is a cluster of tracks directly from that soundworld, with Mariqueen Maandig simply placed on top (& the style & form of the lyrics is decidedly NIN-like). This isn't meant as any disrespect to Maandig, who sounds entirely right in this context, although that might have something to do with the fact that she's not, yet, taken her voice into territory more demanding than chesty whisperings & husky half-utterances. To be blunt, she seems in every way borne aloft on the textures created for her by Ross & Reznor; & while it may be an exhilarating magic carpet ride for her, it's not quite so elevating an experience for us.

The closest she comes to something dramatic is in the opening track "The Space in Between", which is also the best track on the EP.

Once people get past the fact that Trent Reznor has released an album with his wife Mariqueen Maandig Reznor and that they might have to wait a bit longer for the next Nine Inch Nails record and that after spending pretty much the last 4 years touring and releasing records at a record rate, they might actually like this. I know some people who would prefer Trent to have no life and think he's embarrassing himself with this record, i would have to totally disagree. A lot of people have slated this partnership(of cours e they do it from the comfort of hiding behind a computer screen) now if it was rubbish fair enough but this ep is far from that.

How To Destroy Angels(named after a single by the band Coil) are made up of Trent Reznor(nine inch nails), Mariqueen Maandig Reznor(ex West Indian Girl) and Atticus Ross(producer for nine inch nails, korn, saul williams) and with this first self titled release they have given us 6 songs full of beats, fuzzy guitars and vocals provided by Mrs Reznor, Trent himself can be heard singing in the background on Parasite and BBB(big black boots). The ep opens with The Space In Between which sounds like The Sneaker Pimps with its big beats, we then move on to the aforementioned Parasite which has a nin trademark distorted fuzzy guitar, and has Trent tucked in on background vocals, the combination works well.

This album is preceded by the "Wave Goodbye" tour in which Trent Reznor announced that Nine Inch Nails "as we know it" will never do another show and that we, the fans, should enjoy their concert much more because, apparently, there will not be another opportunity to see a live band playing NIN music ever again. I remember him saying in the O2 that he will not retire from music. Instead, he would come back as something different, something new (sure those were not his exact words, but that was the idea).

When I heard that he was behind this new project, I got very excited... and soon enough quite disappointed: Can't help but to think: Did you really said NIN was over to do this? Was HTDA Reznor's new incarnation in music? God, I hope not!

HTDA is not bad, but it is far from brilliant. It's a poor man's version of Massive Attack and a clear by-product of NIN's late music. Not even a NIN with female voice. That would be too much to say. This is derivative and predictable. I like NIN a lot, I have all the albums and most EPs, I've seen him/them live, received the TOIOU release of the concert, etc., but unlike MOST of NIN's army of fans, I don't necessarily have to like whatever it comes under Reznor's golden hand. Come to think about it, I don't own all the albums, as after listening to Ghosts I-IV, I certainly reaffirmed my position that I did not have to like it just because it says NIN in the cover. I think that Ghosts, some very few songs aside, is quite boring and uninspiring.

Same thing here with HTDA. Sure they have some very few interesting ideas, but I think this would have been forgotten within the week of its release, should Mrs. Maandig had married a different rockstar.
