Review: Nine Inch Nails' musically shimmering 'Hesitation Marks'
A simmering, claustrophobic aggression dots Nine Inch Nails' eighth studio album, "Hesitation Marks.' It's within the lyrics of the opening track, "Copy of A," in which Trent Reznor's narrator in typical breathy monotone describes himself as "just a finger on a trigger on a finger." It's at the center of "All Time Low," when he orders an unnamed other to "get down on the floor/shut the goddamn door."
