This is the album that Nine Inch Nails should have released in 2013.
I’ll be honest, this is one of the most difficult reviews I’ve ever tried to start writing. Not so much because of its unique art rock approach, but more because of my conflicted level of interest throughout. I don’t like to start firing off negativity, especially for how much I actually do like Collider as a whole, but the first few tracks are attention demanding.
I have previously described bands as sounding like the true indie music of the 80s/early 90s, similar to many of the bands that I grew up listening to from the mother’s vinyl collection. Never before have I heard a band so true to those roots like Fret! are.
