Not Too Thrilled
on December 20, 2013
Preface: I am a huge fan of Trent Reznor. I think he is by far one of the greatest modern musicians in the "mainstream" (I use that term because, let's face it; he's not in the Trans-Siberian Orchestra - just to be fair, there are way better technical musicians currently walking the face of the earth ... but I digress).
My love for for Trent goes far, but doesn't totally blind me. I probably can name 5-10 NIN songs I despise right off the top of my head. Hey! Being a fan doesn't mean loving EVERYTHING!
Anyway, HTDA ... this EP was pretty weak in my opinion. The previous EP was song strong and full that I almost feel like if they swapped the songs around you would have two decent EPs instead of one strong and one kind of boring ...
But, hey, they're artists and it's their agenda to do what they want. Trent has already established himself as a badass, so who does he have to answer to when making music? No one. None of them do.
ut, for what my opinion is worth, I would recommend just buying the mp3 of "Ice Age" and leaving the rest until you are DYING for more HTDA music.
