NINE INCH NAILS / [WITH_TEETH] (2005)

With Teeth is the most accessible, radio-friendly album Reznor has made yet.
Lyrically it takes the familiar dip into self-loathing existentialism but on the surface it’s bright and airy, with happy drums and inoffensive distortion.
After repeated spins a large part of it gets tiresome to listen to but there are just enough moments of beauty and strength rising above the safety net to make a purchase worthwhile.  It's like a NIN starter kit for the kids.
