Album Review: Nine Inch Nails – Bad Witch

7C1E0AFC-5922-4BB9-BFCD-782B3AA40EB8

Artist: Nine Inch Nails

Album: Bad Witch

Genre: Industrial Rock/Experimental 

Rating: 6/10

 Judging from recent interviews with Trent Reznor, it’s pretty evident that the guy has become a bitter old man, but luckily for him, bitterness and anger have been “Nine Inch Nails’” Forte since day 1, so the anger and blatant nihilism of his new album Bad Witch is unsurprising. This is both a good and a bad thing. The good being that the furious delivery and negative perspective on the human condition over chaotic “Industrial” heavy production is genuine and believable, and doesn’t come off as a man trying to relive his glory days, but the bad thing is that this album is back to business as usual, and at this point “Nine Inch Nails” have become predictable. This is ironic seeing as how Reznor and now official member Atticus Ross completely scrapped the original drafts of this album for being “too predictable.” Though the addition of saxophone is unlike anything “Nine Inch Nails” have done in the past, the whole thing is obvious Blackstar David Bowie era worship, and it is not even close to being as captivating as Bowie’s album. At this point, the band is in desperate need of reinvention.
