As much of a fan of Nine Inch Nails
as I was back in their heyday, I've found Trent Reznor's more recent work to be just as rewarding. I'm not just talking about NIN's final album, The Slip
, but his subsequent soundtrack work with collaborator Atticus Ross: He's been one of the few rock artists whose second act has been as intriguing and inventive as his first. A few years ago he formed a new band, How to Destroy Angels
, and they've just put out their first full-length LP, Welcome Oblivion
. Those who love Reznor's previous work will find elements of that sound here -- but also signs of the mature songwriter he's become.
