83% Gaffa (Sweden) Reznor, som tillsammans med sin numera stadiga vapendragare Atticus Ross, har dock funnit en entydigare inramning och Add Violence känns mer konsekvent än föregångaren Not The Actual Events, samtidigt som den även adderar ett nytt lager till sin företrädare.
80% Drowned in Sound Following on from Not The Actual Events, which Nine Inch Nails released late last year, Add Violence is the second in an apparent trilogy of EPs, and continues the thread of new NIN really rather nicely.
80% The Line of Best Fit Whether or not he’d like to admit it, Trent Reznor must know that every new Nine Inch Nails release comes with a new pressure, one that he hadn’t had to worry about before 2009.
80% Consequence of Sound As impactful as many of NIN’s more focused statements have been, Add Violence makes its impact felt with even more authority than its recent predecessors.
80% Zero Magazine
79% Backseat Mafia
70% Renowned for Sound Nine Inch Nails will soon mark their 3rd decade as a band, and having outlasted many of their predecessors; they’re still showing no signs of calming down. Add Violence is only the third EP to be released during the bands history, with frontman Trent Reznor delivering a succinct five track journey through the classic NIN sound. Less Than is driven by frenetic synths that ping through the ears like an old school pinball game.
70% Pop Matters Someone else notes the parallels to William Basinki's The Disintegration Loops, a series of music particles played in tape loops that decay with every pass, accompanied by artwork of the New York skyline in the aftermath of 911 and finished the morning thereof.
70% Earbuddy When this trilogy is complete, expect a compilation album of all three EPs together with maybe two new songs.
67% Nöjesguiden Hennes Sverigeinspelade album Neptune City hade gjort henne högprioriterad på Det Stora Skivbolaget, och vi som njöt hennes showcasespelning i Stockholm anade att vi bevittnade något stort, vackert och långvarigt.
