Hesitation Marks (Deluxe Version) by Nine Inch Nails on Apple Music

18 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Although Nine Inch Nails’ eighth album casts a similar spell as the band’s most famous work—heavy mechanical textures, juxtapositions of warm lyricism and industrial austerity—Trent Reznor’s growth as a songwriter, arranger, and producer is evident in every detail of Hesitation Marks. Tracks like “The Eater of Dreams,” “I Would for You,” and "Find My Way" are rock songs with the complex architectural touch of a masterful composer (fitting, since Reznor won a GRAMMY® for his score to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). The album’s huge sonic range is evident in its roster of guests, which includes Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham and King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew. But the most impressive element of Hesitation Marks is Reznor's mature, confident songwriting, which has adopted a seasoned perspective without losing any of its bite.

About Nine Inch Nails

With spellbinding beauty and ferocious intensity, Nine Inch Nails—the long-running project of multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter Trent Reznor—is one of the most visceral and elusive alternative acts to expand the boundaries of mainstream music. Forged in a crucible of abrasive noise and icy synthetic textures, 1989’s Pretty Hate Machine established a new vernacular for musical angst, coupling Reznor’s dark introspection with the mechanical grind of industrial rock—in a way that connected with a broad audience. That debut was followed by hugely successful releases in the ‘90s and ‘00s—including The Downward Spiral and The Fragile—featuring layered production and unrelentingly stormy themes. Reznor’s approach outside the studio has been similarly unbounded by convention; he’s upended relationships with labels in order to safeguard his creative freedom, taken long breaks to focus on scoring films, and formed creative alliances with the likes of Tori Amos and poet Saul Williams. One of his most lasting musical partnerships has been with Atticus Ross, who co-wrote the Oscar®-winning score for The Social Network and became the only other official member of Nine Inch Nails in 2016.
