Somehow didn't see that Matt had sent me a message while I was asleep, saying that I should fend for myself scriptwise, so I bugged him in my 30 seconds spent away from Jade Empire today. I'm glad I did bug him, though, because this script is good. :-)

Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth / Dual Disc / Dolby Surround

Impressions after one listen. I haven't heard the stereo mix, despite having had the mp3s for ages.

Highlights:

  • 002_You Know What You Are?
  • 006_Every Day is Exactly the Same
  • 008_Only
  • 013_Right Where It Belongs

Disappointments:

  • 001_All the Love in the World
  • 003_The Collector

Worst Use of Surround:

  • 009_Getting Smaller

With Teeth is definitely Reznor's most accessible record since PHM, possibly ever. It's been almost six years, but nothing's been lost in the interim. Vital. Not nearly so dense and layered as the Fragile, but the depth of sound is there as surely as ever. Listen number 2 is ongoing, and 'All the Love in the World' has already grown on me. Something tells me I'll be listening to this record over and over and over again in the coming weeks.

Goodies
