Anger Machine

Trent Reznor channels his rage into strong new songs

Reznor's resilience is what ultimately makes Teeth such a success. Both lyrically and musically, the album points to a rebirth of energy and perspective. The subtle difference with NIN now is that Reznor feels as if he has the means to do something about the darkness. He grapples with exorcising his depression and desolation, but isn't paralyzed by hopelessness or anger.

Sad songs say so much: Trent Reznor battles his depression with more conviction than ever.

Kramer's article notes that "superficially, mental pain resembles passion, strong emotion that stands in opposition to the corrupt world." Reznor's passion is mental pain -- but With Teeth proves that he's nearly perfected the art of sublimation.
