How To Destroy Angels: Welcome Oblivion (2013)
Allmusic's description of How to Destroy Angels is perfect, except for one thing. They write: "Mixing industrial beats and dreamy trip-hop-tinged vocals, How to Destroy Angels feature Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and NIN producer Atticus Ross." [source] That should have read: "his gorgeous wife Mariqueen Maandig." Just do a google image search, if you want to be convinced. But, back to the record.
This is a fabulous record, but if you are expecting NIN, you will be disappointed. It's far quieter and measured, but I think it's really beautiful.
