This review is from: Welcome Oblivion (Audio CD)
In the space of a year Mr. Reznor has released two full albums of beautiful, technologically advance music which gives my soul a great warm feeling. Though I believe Hesitation Marks (released under Nine Inch Nails) is a superior album, Welcome Oblivion with How To Destroy Angels (A side-project with his wife and Atticus Ross) is still a trippy and wonderfully constructed record. From the start with the jagged opener 'Keep It Together' we get the taste of Mrs. Reznor's hauntingly beautiful voice and of course the masterful production of Trent and Ross. The album only gets stronger from then on with the weird banjo lead 'Ice Age' the NIN crowd pleaser 'Too Late, All Gone' and then just as we hit the half way mark the sing-a-long 'How Long?'. Though it was inevitable that the basis of the album would sound very NINish the introduction of female vocals and other people's ideas in general make HTDA another band completely willing to go the distance to push the boundaries of experimental electronic it music for the world.
