Okay so I've been a Nine Inch Nails fan for a long time. Years and years.
Yes Trent has put out amazing albums throughout these years. Many of you still hold on to the Downward Spiral, or The Fragile, or perhaps Broken.ETC.
His more, angry depressed years.
And his new stuff may never compare to that, but Year Zero is an awesome album for sure. You can still hear his old-downward spiral-sound to it in some of the songs.
The album is a bit more mellow but has a beautiful sound to it, like Zero-Sum, or In this Twilight,or Another Version of the truth-all have Trents classic piano-playing skills.
Please I suggest you give this album a chance. A lot of people are still stuck in the past with his older stuff and actually wishing that he would go back to drugs-which is a horrible thing to wish for. Overall, you should be happy that he hasnt retired!
Year Zero is a political album. May not be your cup of tea, but I think it was a great idea. Were living in a weird period right now, and everything is so screwed up in this world. Governments, the society etc.
And Trent defiantly had something to say in this album, that will defiantly suck you into his world, and open your eyes a little more to whats going on around you!
So please, give it a listen, or buy it!
