3 stars This is a pretty good EP from NIN. NIN then from now is very interesting. Then they were a very industrial, heavy hitting band that did not mess around, now they still are just more experimental, and with that I respect Trent Reznor a lot. He makes music he wants too and if he is going down the Experimental rabbit hole with his rock music, than sure, why not. I liked all the tracks on this EP, I thought Less Than was a cool synthy and aggressive starter for this album and I loved the experimental beeps and hoops of The Lovers and I thought the piano of This Isn't The Place was very lovely even in the wake of some pretty creepy sounds, and I think Not Anymore is a very interesting but pretty loud and bassy tracks. However this EP comes to ahead with the Star shining track, The Background World. At first it's like any other track on the EP, beeps and boops, Trent singing his heart out, your usual, but then afterwards, this looping bass synth riff and drums start playing, and more and more these basses get even louder and bassier until they are only really loud static noise, like this song became an entire Drone track that loops infinitely, until it stops. All in all a very interesting EP from the band, and definitely one I might revisit again soon. Very nice.
