The New York Times' Jon Pareles said, "[Nine Inch Nails'] arena tour promises the kind of sensory onslaught - musical, visual, emotional - that fans have missed." The band, which recently completed a series of summer festival performances, topped SPIN's list of "The 50 Best Things We Saw at Lollapalooza 2013." Rolling Stone praised Nine Inch Nails' Outside Lands Festival set as "one of the most memorable...in the festival's six-year history."
Reviewing Nine Inch Nails' intimate record release show at the Troubadour, the Los Angeles Times observed, "no band can call up a wraithful wail of noise like NIN." "The band plays perfectly, and their leader's delivery is flawless from whisper to scream," said SPIN. "NIN have a reputation as one of rock's greatest live bands, but this show found the group attaining new heights," noted Billboard. "This might be the most exciting incarnation of NIN yet..."
Nine Inch Nails' Hesitation Marks (Columbia Records) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard'sAlternative Albums and Top Rock Albums chart and was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone,People, USA Today and Alternative Press.
"There is blood here: Hesitation Marks refers to the preliminary wounds made during a suicide attempt," said Rolling Stone. "There is deliverance, too. You can dance to much of this terror, all the way to the brink and back." SPIN observed, "icon Reznor is once again one of the most vital artists working today" while The Washington Post said, "It's one of the best albums of the year and NIN's finest work since at least 1999's 'The Fragile.'" "At once sophisticated and feral, [Hesitation] Marks gets high marks for taking a dark, majestic leap from trends and nostalgia into uncharted vistas...Peak Trent Reznor," noted USA Today.Entertainment Weekly named it as one of the fall's "must-hear" albums and called the singles "Came Back Haunted" and"Everything" "among Reznor's finest."
