[WITH_TEETH] is the most accessible, radio-friendly album that Reznor has made yet. Lyrically, it takes a 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.
