Before they released their 3rd album, Melophobia, Cage the Elephant did something I think all bands should do at some point. They took time off from each other and all wrote tracks individually, before reuniting and going through all of the songs to pick out the best. Such a simple act, and yet so effective. Just listen to the album to see what I mean. Nine Inch Nails, the artist/group/Reznor responsible for popularizing Industrial music, is back again with a new (phenomenal) album and are (thank the Industrial gods) touring again.
Each song’s corresponding album is in parentheses.
