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.
