Album Review: Nine Inch Nails—Bad Witch

Nine Inch Nails – Bad Witch (Null/Capitol, 2018)

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross don’t stray too far from their formula here on what some are calling their first proper album in years, although at 6 songs and 31 minutes, it’s hard to see how it could stand next to The Downward Spiral or Year Zero. Either way, we’re calling it an EP that stands taller than last year’s Add Violence, at the very least. Alternately frenetic and meditative – it’s always tedious sitting through a track like “I’m Not from this World” – string the last three EPs together and you’ve got yourself a Nine Inch Nails album, of which Bad Witch isn’t a bad way to end it.
