Don't listen to the drones

Lots of people talking crap about this album! Well here's a slightly different perspective.
I was never a huge NIN fan, outside of "downward Spiral" and "The Fragile." After that....Trent Reznor lost me. Loved his soundtracks, but by the time "year zero" came around, that was it for me. NIN was always about composition and dynamic, like "March Of The Pigs" and "Closer." They're dark, catchy as hell, and equally chaotic and melodically brilliant.
"Hesitation Marks" returns us to a Reznor more concerned with composition over sheer volume and angst. The result are extremely rewarding, "copy of a" is kinda like if Radiohead had teeth and balls. The synth tones and progression of the song are just amazing. Then there's "all time low," a little similar to "closer."
Don't listen to the people who say this album is short on anger and impassioned vocal performances. Skip "find a way" and "everything," but outside of that it's all gold, especially if your a fan of his warp records influence:).
If you liked Downward Spiral, if you like electro like Moderat and Radiohead but wish they incorporated some serious rock, BUY THIS ALBUM.

This album is a "grower" and is yields maximum benefit after multiple listens. As a Long time fan, the first listen didn't totally floor me. Some songs that connected, but many others didn't. Where were the obviously aggressive, assault-on-the-senses tracks we were expecting?? I was left with the impression of "hmmm...that was weird. Maybe I should listen to it again?" After listening for 2 years I believe this is Mr Reznor operating at the peak of his artistic powers in composing, arrangement and production. For the courageous listener that wants to hear music made exactly as the artist intended, without label/business interference.
