4.0 out of 5 stars A good debut, room for improvement... July 6, 2010
Format:Audio CD
If there is one thing I was hoping for with the release of the eponymous EP from How To Destroy Angels it was for something completely beyond the norm for Trent Reznor. I'm a HUGE Nine Inch Nails fan, so as far as I am concerned, anything the man touches is solid gold (and I haven't been let down yet). HTDA is no exception; it's a quality record from a quality group of musicians. My only complaint would be that it does sound a little too NIN-ish. Some of these tracks sound like they could have been b-sides or unreleased tracks from Year Zero, which wouldn't have been a bad thing if this was a Nails release. It sounds as though Trent is trying to get out of his comfort zone here but just can't seem to get all the way out. Some tracks are stellar standouts that offer a lot of hope that some amazing things are in the works; "Fur Lined" in particular has a very unique feel that sets it apart from Reznor's previous work. "The Space In Between" is a bit out there for him, but still manages to toe that line of comfortability. The addition of Mariqueen Maandig-Reznor certainly adds an interesting element to the equation, her vocals are haunting and breathy which does wonders for the music; Reznor singing would have not made quite the impact.

All in all, this is a good record; not a great one, but a good one. If Trent and company can find a way to get themselves out of their comfort zone, they could deliver a truly amazing album.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Try to fill the spaces in between." June 25, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
This is the self-titled debut EP by How to Destroy Angels, a group formed by Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and producer Atticus Ross. It sort of sounds like Nine Inch Nails release The Slip if a woman was singing. It will be released physically early next month, but you can still download it online for free if you want. So yeah, it's pretty enjoyable electronic/industrial stuff, and it's hard to go wrong when you don't have to pay. My two favorite tracks happen to be the opener and closer, "The Space in Between" and "A Drowning". The former has a perfect, ominous sound countered by Mariqueen's pleasant voice that nicely introduces you to their style, and the latter has a nice build up and release for the record's climax. The other tracks are totally fine too, with my third favorite probably being "The Believers". I'm not sure how dedicated any of them really are to the future of this project, but their first effort is fairly strong and might be worth some further development.

3.0 out of 5 stars How To Castrate a Legend January 4, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that im a huge Nine Inch Nails/Trent fan. I own everything he/they've done and have seen them live more times than i can count. And that my be the/my problem. I'm comparing. This coul've/should've been a NIN album. The music is fantastic, the production incredible and lush, the lyrics amazing (especially 'A Drowning'), the vocal melodies are perfectly how Trent would sing, phrasing and all...its just that Mariqueen's vocals are...nice. Too nice. Sweet and perfect and...ultimately passionless. Almost spoken most of the time. No grit, no emotion no. I know this is unfair...this isn't supposed to be NIN. I know this. It just sounds like the Muzak version of Nine Inch Nails...the "Honey, here are some songs i wrote but you can sing them" version. Sonically and lyrically this would/should be one of the better NIN albums in the past few years. Instead it comes off as a less passionate/intense version of the band. There is NOTHING wrong with the CD and i love listening to it...it's just as dissapointing because of what it could've been with Trent singing. No impact...no emotional value. Again i know that is unfair. I wish that i had no idea Trent was involved because it's a ghost of things that could've been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trance with Trent Reznor September 29, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
When Trent Reznor announced that he was disbanding Nine Inch Nails he said he was tired of being constrained with the type of music he created because of the expectations that people had with that name. Not his exact words (by a long shot!) but definitely his meaning behind them.

It's obvious to me that he was quite inspired by his wife in creating this "band" if you can call it that. It is Trance with a Trent twist. Like early NIN it doesn't quite fit into any preconceived or pre-marketed genre. As always, he is a musical genius and quite possibly/probably ahead of his time. It's very chill and relaxing - not what you would normally expect from him!

Personally I think a lot of the bad reviews here were from people who wanted NIN reincarnated. Mariqueen Maandig certainly doesn't have the voice to do Industrial, but she is marvelous singing this.

If you have an open mind, like/love Electronic/Trance (not just Club stuff) music, like/love Trent Reznor's style of music then give this a shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars WETTING THE APPETITE March 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Once people get past the fact that Trent Reznor has released an album with his wife Mariqueen Maandig Reznor and that they might have to wait a bit longer for the next Nine Inch Nails record and that after spending pretty much the last 4 years touring and releasing records at a record rate, they might actually like this. I know some people who would prefer Trent to have no life and think he's embarrassing himself with this record, i would have to totally disagree. A lot of people have slated this partnership(of cours e they do it from the comfort of hiding behind a computer screen) now if it was rubbish fair enough but this ep is far from that.

How To Destroy Angels(named after a single by the band Coil) are made up of Trent Reznor(nine inch nails), Mariqueen Maandig Reznor(ex West Indian Girl) and Atticus Ross(producer for nine inch nails, korn, saul williams) and with this first self titled release they have given us 6 songs full of beats, fuzzy guitars and vocals provided by Mrs Reznor, Trent himself can be heard singing in the background on Parasite and BBB(big black boots). The ep opens with The Space In Between which sounds like The Sneaker Pimps with its big beats, we then move on to the aforementioned Parasite which has a nin trademark distorted fuzzy guitar, and has Trent tucked in on background vocals, the combination works well.

The cd came glued to the box and almost did not take it out.
But the glue does not damage the CD and hear perfectly.
The box does not have very good bill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not terribly different from NIN after all
OK, so supposedly this is an effort by Reznor to 'branch out' and try things different than he thought NIN fans would accept. Read more
