Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Bad Witch’ is a strong effort, but not for an LP

It’s disappointing after releasing two excellent EPs (“Not the Actual Events” and “Add Violence”) that Nine Inch Nails’ frontman Trent Reznor leaves us with a thirty god damn minute “full length” album entitled “Bad Witch” (Halo 32) that feels more like another EP than an actual album. I have never been critical of Reznor really … More Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Bad Witch’ is a strong effort, but not for an LP
