Since this review is attached to the DualDisc edition, I'll begin there. The 5.1 surround mix is worth the additional price for the DD; it brings the sound alive just as the 5.1 reworking of "The Downward Spiral" anniversary edition did. However, the additional content is pretty lackluster. The video for "The Hand That Feeds" is the one being played on MTV, not the fabled alternate clip. The discography contains short audio/video samples of NIN's entire career, but they're nothing new to any fan. It's also important to note that the DualDisc format isn't as universally compatible as the standard CD and can even get stuck and/or scratched in certain laptop and car CD drives. So, unless you plan on listening regularly to the 5.1 mix, I'd save the couple of dollars and stick with the regular CD edition. Now on to the album itself. . .

It's been over six years since the last full-length studio release from Trent Reznor, and a difficult six years at that. Reznor has since come clean about his battles with substance addiction and crises in confidence about his musical abilities. After hearing the pre-release single "The Hand That Feeds", the Internet buzzed with hot-and-cold reactions to its more accessible sound. Had Reznor actually lost the edge that had produced so much crucial music over the last decade and a half?

A single listen to "With Teeth" is enough put such concerns to rest. It's a return to the "Pretty Hate Machine" idea of creating an album of songs, not a synth symphony with returning motifs such as "The Fragile" or an industrial-rock opera like "The Downward Spiral".

Nine Inch Nails are back with their fourth effort "With Teeth," and once again Trent Reznor has made an outstanding album.

Although the album has a sense of urgency, "With Teeth" is not as angry or intense as "Pretty Hate Machine," (1989) or "The Downward Spiral" (1994). Overall, I think the actual songs on "With Teeth" sound most similar to those on "The Fragile" (1999). Unlike "The Fragile," however, there are not any instrumentals. "With Teeth" gets more to-the-point. Although I personally loved the long instrumentals on "The Fragile," fans who thought the album was too self-indulgent or long, may be more pleased with the format of "With Teeth."

One additional difference between "The Fragile" and "With Teeth" is the welcome addition of drummer Dave Grohl on several of the tracks. His playing gives the album more of a live, organic feel, and gives the sound a shot in the arm. Unfortunately, what tracks he plays on are not listed on the CD case and there is no booklet. However, you'll know when you hear him.

I liked "With Teeth" after the first listen. However, much like "The Fragile" this is definitely an album that grows on you with repeated plays. There's a lot going on in all of the songs-subtle things, solos, guitars and keyboards-things that you might not pick up on the first couple times. It definitely gets better with repeated plays. Like all Nine Inch Nails albums, each song is meticulously and painstakingly crafted, there is no filler.

The themes of "With Teeth" are similar to those on past NIN albums-loneliness, rage, fear, nihilism-but Reznor sounds less bleak, more confident, if only slightly so.

The album starts out with the rather sluggish "All the Love in the World," which has an almost claustrophobic feel.

I have read many reviews on here calling this album too similar to the others, and that it should have been the album after The Downward Spiral because it's not close enough to the Fragile. This could not be farther from the truth. With Teeth, in the sound aspect and lyrical aspect, trancends so many fields of music in one album that it is impossible to call it too similar to the other albums. There are tracks that have elements of previous albums in them, but what Nine Inch Nails album did not have tracks that recall tracks from previous albums? And as a whole, With Teeth has a completely different feel to it than Pretty Hate Machine, Broken, The Downward Spiral, and The Fragile.

The themes of With Teeth are strongly tied with Trent Reznor's addiction problems, his coming to grips with the fact he isn't where he thinks he should be, and finally, his facing of himself. These themes work in a concept like The Downward Spiral throughout the album.

I hate reading reviews by those who simply calssify With Teeth as "teen angst", because it simply isn't. It's a very thoughtfull and meaningful album, for the man who wrote it and for those who listen to it. I love each and every Nine Inch Nails album, and this is no exception. In fact, this is the most interesting of them all. As for fans who were unhappy with the album, I cannot be certain, but I think in time they will learn to like it. It is quite an adjustment from The Fragile to With Teeth.

An incredible album. Mr. Reznor has shown us what real music is once again.
