some say it was a warning

 nine inch nails - year zero





this is the NIN i've missed - trent furiously growling atop ambitious, hypnotic drums and synth. i think i like it so much because it feels like an entire album inspired by the big come down and ruiner. trent still manages to make fresh-sounding music... he's kicked his percentage of interesting content up to around 95% on this near-masterpiece. starts to feel a bit repetitive towards the close. easily the most significant work he's done since the downward spiral. SAT analogy time: if the fragile is a drug-induced love poem, then with-a teeth-a is a book report and year zero is a hell-and-damnation sermon, frightening the listener into paranoia about the evil right-wingers destroying the world.

man, is it me or does the intro to capital G sound like trent stole it from michael jackson's the way you make me feel?

 mc frontalot - secrets from the future





the 'front dropped my jaw with the opening title track, railing on about encryption in almost-serious tones on top of the best beats he's ever had. unfortunately the rest of the disc is a little tedious. i don't like the new lyrical styling - too hurried and unintelligible... i don't like the "v2.0" version of romantic cheapskate, either. don't get me wrong - much of the disc, including bizarro genius baby and it is pitch dark (a tribute to zork), still induces belly-laughs... but i could do without the preaching - because aimless finger-pointing + silly mix about as well as orange juice and toothpaste.
