Review Of The Downward Spiral
NINE INCH NAILS The Downward Spiral (Nothing/TVT/Interscope) On
its second full-length album, Nine Inch Nails (a.k.a Trent Reznor, the
studio Svengali responsible for NIN's mix of twisted techno and impure
industrial rock) advances further along the path of radio-friendly aural
terrorism. Reznor's pet topics (sex, power, S&M, hatred,
transcendence) are all here, wrapped in hooks that hit your psyche
with the force of a blow-torch. Definitive: the phallus-as-firearm
imagery of "Big Man With a Gun."
