This must be the end result of having destroyed angels.

Carlton is actually a fucking good dancer.
Change
He was trained for a while to work with Michael Jackson. I think he was also a tap dancer for a while, too.

The music sounds like a Joy Division knock off, and the singing falls in with any whiny modern pop crooner. So basically it sounds just like anything else NIN does!

As what might best be considered a non-fan listener to NIN, this sounds nothing like what I'm used to hearing from Reznor and whoever he's working with these days.

Admittedly, my only NIN exposures are "The Hand That Feeds," "Head Like A Hole," "Animal," and the music from Quake.

Maybe someone slipped him some anti-depressants?

EvilHomer
Someone slipped him about fifty million dollars and an offer for a few million more if he came out of retirement.

It's not true, for the first couple albums NIN was ripping off Soft Cell a lot more than Joy Division.

Old_Zircon
I haven't heard any NIN since that album ffrom the late 90s that was 7 versions of Closer and a ten minute cover of Meomoribilia by Soft Cell so maybe there were some changes since then, but this sounds literally nothing like ny NIN I've ever heard.

It sounds like Radio Disney.

Old_Zircon
This is pretty clearly a "what do kids dig these days?" move, and what kids dig these days is bands that sound like a mix between Neu! and Joy Division, but condensed into 3 minute pop songs.

I have to admit that I don't know anyone, young or old, that's a big Joy Division fan.

Sounds to me like 90's grunge got ran through millennial synth-pop. This is not the ripping of Prince NIN I'd come to enjoy.

Old_Zircon
The music from Quake is the best thing NIN ever did as far as I'm concerned. The worst things about NIN are the drums, the vocals and the guitars, when you get rid of that you have some genuinely interesting, yet still light and accessible, ambient music. No new ground is broken but it's very pleasant.

When viewed purely as an 80s cover band, NIN ain't all that bad.

I liked NIN pretty good when i was a teenager, some angsty friends really ruined it for me at some point. The quake soundtrack was pretty good, i seem to remember having a copy of Descent for the ps1 that had a soundtrack by Type O Negative.

Pillager
Nah, totally a Skinny Puppy rip off.

Old_Zircon
I stand by Soft Cell.

It's fine if you don't like NIN because of the singing or other dissonant features, but the "rip off" argument is trash. It's fine to be influenced by other musicians. IIRC Trent released Pretty Hate Machine at 23, I dare any of you people to get in a time machine make an album at that age that isn't strongly influenced by something.

Hooker
My favourite band as a teenager. *sigh*

I bought concert tickets for this tour a couple months ago. *SIGH*

Mine was the Smashing Pumpkins. This is less bad than what the Pumpkins are doing now. I saw SP last fall and it was depressing. Billy's pants didn't fit so 50% of the show I could see his asscrack.

EvilHomer
GWAR.

Still kickin' ass!!!

My disillusionment with Smashing Pumpkins hit in 1997...

Old_Zircon
Mine was Zappa, with Butthole Surfers getting honorable mention.

Old_Zircon
Gish is a good album in retrospect, Smashing Pumpkins should have stuck to being a heavier wave of the Paisley Underground.

Seven Arts/H8 Red
I was partial to Atari Teenage Riot...then ATR released Live at Brixton Academy '99.

Once you've trolled the ATR fanbase like that, there's nowhere else to go.

I rather liked Siamese Dream too.

poorwill
Siamese Dream is a fantastic album.

Riskbreaker
It's spelled "br00tal"
oswaldtheluckyrabbit
Aww, leave 'im alone! Can't Trent just be happy??
Spaceman Africa
Nine Inch Nails made a Strokes song. Looks like Trent still knows how to troll his fans.
paparatti
Five stars not just for Carlton but also for the good chance Reznor is raging about this video. Or is responsible for it. Either way.
Nominal
Starring Carlton's bouncing junk.
StanleyPain
This doesn't strike me as super terrible (though the proximity to Joy Division rip off is uncomfortably close) but it also isn't something I would pay money to listen to. Sorry Trent. Loved your early stuff, but not NO MO.
Braze
This guy named his kids "Balthazar" and "Lazarus Echo". If he has two more kids it'll be an entire adventuring party
SixDigitDebt
All my stars for Blink 182 writing for Trent.
