top-notch industrial/electronica fusion from trent reznor's trio, dark drones, haunted vocals, glitch beats & ominous soundscapes reign supreme.

led by the former nine inch nails leader alongside his wife mariqueen maandig & atticus ross, the group continue down a route that was always a potential side road from nin's classic sound. mixing some of the more persistent & hypnotic industrial edge from reznor's recent electronic soundtrack work, maandig's voice provides a compelling focal point, adding drama & emotion to the brooding sound. as the beats form dirt smattered, grainy loops, sawing bass & synth noise interrupts swirling melodies & arpeggios that sound like kraftwerk soundtracking fallout. "a truly great record that offers a lot of thrills & the band share their concept with enough pathos to sink both fans & newcomers into their post-apocalyptic universe" 4/5 - sputnik music.
