"The band was flawless, Reznor was afire, and rock music temporarily found salvation - millennium style, with pieces of all that pop music means for today's over-stimulated, under-nourished youthŠ" - The Gazette (Montreal), May 1, 2000

" Starsuckers, Inc.¹ has clearly already taken a special place in NIN fans¹ hearts. A panoramic glance of the Coliseum during this song revealed that the audience members who were not jumping up and down during the song could have been counted on the digits of a hand." - The Daily Cardinal (Madison, WI), April 24, 2000

"Šhis songs suggested smudged, impressionistic snapshots of rock Œn¹ roll¹s past, mutant visions of classic songcraft. The Rolling Stones¹ sneering, leering ŒStar, Star¹ became the brutal kiss-off ŒStar[expletive], Inc.¹ "Š - Chicago Tribune, April 24, 2000
