NIN Listening Party

I attended last night's listening party for the new NIN album Year Zero.
They have been my favorite band since 2000, and my musical tastes have grown by leaps and bounds since discovering this critically acclaimed one man band. Trent Reznor's rebound from drug addiction, depression, and lethargy has been inspiring to me, and hearing this wonderful new album has only increased that inspiration. It is a return to form for one of modern music's true masters. I am thankful that they decided to have a listening party for the first time in Minneapolis, and it was another reason to appreciate living here.
