Album is inconsistent. Many moments of greatness and quite a few duds as well. Feel conflicted about it as a whole. It'll receive re-listens later because its (to its credit or not) definitely not an album that's immediately digestible.
Like most NIN albums, there is a lot going on in this one. Hopefully it will grow on you.

Yea...

As a very huge NIN supporter. The album is not very good. I've tried to get into it a couple different times. Its upsetting that it was such a let down. I didn't think The Slip was a great album by any means but it had its moments. At this point I would have been satisfied if it was even The Slip good which it is not.

Definitely, and I'm hoping it will grow on me.

This record has a subtlety about it. He's not trying to shock people anymore. His earlier stuff was compelling because it was more intense and disturbing, and packed a punch, but his music across the board is going to be good just because musically he's one of the best there is.

That he's changing his style a bit, I think gives the music a novel feel. I like this, but at the same time I miss being walloped in the face. I also like that it's obvious he listens to a ton of different styles of music, like Prince or jazz standards, and that they find their way into his music. What I don't like, and can't escape, is that a decent portion of this album is boring, especially by NIN standards, and it's actually hard to concentrate on it all the way through.

You had me nodding in agreement up until the last sentence. I actually like the album as a whole, for the reasons you stated. Does it have its less interesting moments? Sure, but I wouldn't call them boring. I just agree that he no longer seems to feel the need to punch us in the face anymore, and as appealing as it was when he was doing it, it's not always necessary. He's a great artist.

That, and I thought The Slip was less interesting than this one, so if you wanna fight about it, 300%, I'll be your huckleberry.

Well dang, maybe I'm the problem and not the album.

I agree that this album is better than The Slip. And I disagree with Velvetgrass, I think this album is also better than With Teeth. That makes it their best album since The Fragile (excluding Ghosts I-IV which is a different animal anyway).

I'll be honest, I don't get the love for With Teeth. It's okay at best, but isn't that memorable in my opinion with the exception of the singles.

With Teeth was NIN's first "average" album, and first attempt at simplifying the music to some degree. It was a poor channeling of Reznor's angst, and came across as immature. And uninspired.

Attendance from last night's show at the Garden: 8,900

I thought it would've been more considering it was their first show back here in over 4 years.
