The first time I really listened to Trent Reznor was the soundtrack of The Social Network - oh sure I was aware of him - I had studied his marketing methods but had never really listened to his music.
Nine Inch Nails was notorious but my impression of the music was that it was impenetrable for someone like me. ... we all know of bands / artists / games etc and we have opinions about them before we've interacted with them -
I'm guessing that a lot of our opinions and beliefs about things that we have never really experienced or listened to, are wrong.
I was wrong about Nine inch nails and Mr. Reznor.
This is fucking killer writing music - Dude's a genius!
