Holiday Special: Alternative Press 5 Page Interview with Reznor[00:50 EST]
As a Special Holiday Treat, we've got the latest interview with Trent Reznor. This is a lengthy interview that touches on almost every subject you'd want to hear about! Trent discusses the parralells between Roger Waters and himself, Fred Durst, whats next and much more.

This interview comes from the January Issue of Alternative Press magazine, in which Trent Reznor was named artist of the year in 2000. If you scroll down a bit, you can check out all the pictures from the article.

I'm at a serious crossroads right now, a lot of which has to do with the climate of the record industry; a lot of which has to do with the record label we're on and the treatment we received from them-and trying to put things in perspective of what's happened in the past few years, reassessing why I'm doing this.
Make sure to buy the copy of the magazine when it hits the shelves next week, and take a look at the interview! Thanks to the webmistress of NineInchNailsArt.com for typing this all up!

Rock Sound reviews Things Falling Apart[21:00 EST]
Just recently, we received a review of Nine Inch Nails' latest EP Things Falling Apart from the British magazine Rock Sound. Here's a little snippet:
Trent Reznor's always had a firm grasp of technology and the brutal tortured sounds that Nine Inch Nails often produce are sometimes more a kin to the dance floor than a dark lonely bedroom.

The Onion Reviews Things Falling Apart[07:37 EST]
One of the funniest sites on the internet, The Onion.com, which is a fake newspaper, has reviewed Things Falling Apart in thier latest issue. The music reviews are one of the serious parts of the page, and this review happens to be an extremely well thought out look on the album.

The review states that "The new Things Falling Apart takes some of The Fragile's tracks and roughs them up even more, tossing them to a pack of remixers that chews them up like dog toys. As with Nine Inch Nails' previous remix collections, Reznor often dissects his own songs, which not only hints at a sense of perverse creative masochism, but also acknowledges the constant mutability of modern electronic music. " It also goes through a song by song review also.
