Album: Tardigrades Will Inherit the Earth
Stars: 5
Blurb: With even more aggressive fervor than the debut album, surpassing its progressive and pop leanings to deliver a dark warning to a humanity rapidly bringing about its own destruction, The Mute Gods succeed in making an album that is apocalyptic, ironic, and catchy.

Nine Inch Nails - Not the Actual Events EPNine Inch Nails
Category: Industrial
Album: Not the Actual Events EP
Stars: 2.5
Blurb: While described “an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record,” with plenty of miasmal, oppressively noisy production to boot, the latest EP from Nine Inch Nails is more of a return to the band’s earlier, more aggressive style than they or the audience may care to admit.
