4 stars Not the actual events is the third release in a proposed trio of extended plays released by Nine inch nails, with the other two being Add violence and Bad witch. Not the actual events is a more straightforward industrial rock and industrial metal album, similar to the Broken EP, but Not the actual events sounds more like the Fragile album instead of the Broken album. Trent Reznor's wife and West Indian girl singer Mariqueen Maandig makes a guest appearance on the third song, She's gone away. The songs Branches/Bones and The idea of you are more industrial metal sounding while the songs Burning Bright (field on fire) and Dear world sound more like the industrial rock Nine inch nails is famous for. Overall the album is great, even though it isn't even a full length album, and Not the actual events is worth a listen as it is a very enjoyable album.
