"Year Zero" is a total marriage of the pop and gamer aesthetics that unlocks the rusty cages of the music industry and solves some key problems facing rock music as its cultural dominance dissolves into dust. It's easy for even Reznor appreciators to overlook this accomplishment, because "Year Zero" also works as pure pop.
SpinThe songs drag in the middle, choruses become interchangeable, and too many tracks end with the same electronic stuttering. [May 2007, p.84]
CraigC.May 29, 2008THE best NIN album thus far!
RichardHApr 23, 2007I'm not going to compare this CD to the Downward Spiral. I'm not going to liken it to With_Teeth or go on and on about I'm not going to compare this CD to the Downward Spiral. I'm not going to liken it to With_Teeth or go on and on about 'digital hardcore' since I have no idea what that even means. But what I will say about this disk is that it is Reznor's most ambitious outing since The Fragile. And he pulls it off easily. From it's darkest growl to it's softest whisper this disk simply bleeds into you. With each repeated play-through the sounds between the lines of each song have slowly unfurled and I've become completely absorbed in this fictional future that is actually simply a slightly darker depiction of the current status of our world. For fans of the sound that Reznor has been crafting starting with the Fragile this CD should be highly recommended. For fans of the earlier era stuff that have disliked the sound of his more recent work, you may be less thrilled.… Expand
JacksonYApr 13, 2007Truly genius. One of the best album made in years. People have never heard anything sound like this before.

MichaelBApr 17, 2007NIN's new album is quite a departure from the last one. Instead of heavy riffs and crushing beats, the songs blend noise rock with NIN's new album is quite a departure from the last one. Instead of heavy riffs and crushing beats, the songs blend noise rock with downtempo electro. The lyrics paint the picture of a bleak dystopian future run by a fascist government. The vocal work is classic Reznor: dark and full of rage. The album as a whole is great, albeit not near as versatile as records like The Downward Spiral or The Fragile; the songs are all quite similar and tend to blend into one another. That aside, most fans of rock and/or electro will find the album enjoyable, and NIN fans will love it.… Expand
ErwinKApr 30, 2007This is really really good. Probably one of the best political albums even made. Trent has channelled all this anger away from This is really really good. Probably one of the best political albums even made. Trent has channelled all this anger away from self-flagelation into a demonic dystopian view of the future. The first half of the album is full of wicked, spikey, delectible peices of NIN sounds - like broken glass mixed with macadmia nut ice-cream. In the middle of this album you have this track, The Warning, an incredibly spooky track which talks of a messianic alien. Very creepy X-Files. Nice. We are delivered from salvation not by the second coming but by a giant hand coming down from the sky. The second half of the album is more moody and brooding. The final track sounds very David Bowie IMO.… Expand
RingoDingoSep 6, 2007Terrible. I guess I bought the non-concept version because mine sucks. No immagery, no hooks, very forgetable. I listed to it twice, tried to Terrible. I guess I bought the non-concept version because mine sucks. No immagery, no hooks, very forgetable. I listed to it twice, tried to make it a third time through but got bored. I then popped in 90's NIN, cried a little, because like Nirvana that music will not be created anymore. Trent isnt dead, just his ideas. You can post masterpiece on a canvas smeared with fecal matter and people will buy it. I guess Trent smeared fecal matter on a mixing console and you all bought it.… Expand
