To all the "fans" who wish Trent would go back to NIN:

Love it or hate it, it's not your music, so don't presume to understand the artists' intent just because it doesn't suit your tastes. And you aren't in Trent Reznor's head, so don't presume to know why he's involved in this project. Trent's always been and innovator and an experimenter. Don't think he's going to stop following his muse just because you want more screaming and distorted guitars, the dude is beyond that stage of his life now.

Still, you gotta love the way people feel they are OWED the style of music that they expect from somebody.

If you don't like it, don't buy it, that's easier than ever these days.

My only complaint is that there isn't more than six songs, but you know what they say... Quality > Quantity

missing a certain oomph

I listened to this albumn with an open mind but have reached the conclusion the whole thing plays out rather boring, not bad but just lacking a certain oomph. It is just experimental and edgy enough to keep me wondering what's next but never hits a climax.

About How to Destroy Angels

Named after a 1984 Coil single, How to Destroy Angels feature Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, former West Indian Girl singer (and Reznor's wife) Mariqueen Maandig, and Atticus Ross (12 Rounds, NIN). Work on the project began a few months after Nine Inch Nails' final show of their Wave Goodbye tour in September 2009. The following spring, the group made its debut with the single A Drowning and a video for the song "The Space in Between," which premiered that May. Soon after, the band made its self-titled debut EP -- which was produced by Ross -- available as a free download. That July, How to Destroy Angels was released on CD through the Null label. In 2011, the group contributed a cover of Bryan Ferry's "Is Your Love Strong Enough" to the soundtrack of the David Fincher film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which Reznor and Ross also scored. The following year, How to Destroy Angels prepared their second release, An Omen EP, which became their first major-label recording. A full-length album called Welcome Oblivion appeared in March 2013, just after Reznor announced he was planning to take a new version of Nine Inch Nails on the road in 2014. Welcome Oblivion peaked at number 30 on the Billboard 200 and featured the single "How Long?" ~ Heather Phares
