Starts off alright; progresses quickly up a steep hill; u-turns on itself resulting in an unsightly sag, much like middle-age spread; picks up around the 60 minute mark for a rather pleasant finish, a la 'Mechanical Animals' and 'Holywood'.
Not quite - or, indeed, nowhere near - the "greatest thing we've put our name to", but I guess it's alright. Lyrics are as deep as a pond, but so have they always been; and Trent Reznor gets away with it! Musically it occasionally seems a little repetitious and inadventurous, too.
