Trent Reznor's is one of the most unique and singular vision in music. His music is entirely his own in writing, and in some cases in recording. Production wise, he is one of the greats of all time, and the ambitiousness of his albums matches that greatness. Many complain about the weakness of his lyrics, and though he will occasionally have lyrics that definitely do not match the quality of the music he makes, he has some incredible songs lyrically. As well, I find his lyrics do a good job of painting a picture of how he (or his characters) see the worlds they inhabit. I do not consider his lyrics to be the strongest part of his music, but for the most part I do not think that he's weakened by his lyrics. Overall I think Nine Inch Nails is one of the most overlooked bands, and I think it is one of the best bands of its generation.

The band were forced to cut their excessively long nails in order to play their guitars

Trent is easily one of the best artists of recent times. Great voice, great music, and despite being active for over 20 years has yet to put out a bad album.

still can not believe that many people think "hurt" would be originally by Johnny Cash.
