    Default Why is Trent Reznor considered a genius

    First of all, i'm not bashing the man, i like the few NIN songs i've heard, but i dont see why everybody claims he's this genius that is the most creative man on the planet. Please tell me what is special about Reznor, educate me

    I couldn't agree more.

    NIN have some decent songs, but as a whole Trent is really just an average musician. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that he took a fairly underground genre of music and made it poppy and palatable to a larger audience, but that alone, in my eyes, does not make a genius musician. Plus, this whole "BUT HE PLAYS ALL HIS OWN INSTRUMENTS AND RECORDS ALL BY HIMSELF" bullshit pisses me off. It's okay if he does, but he's not even close to the only musician that does this.

    It doesn't matter whether or not he's a genius to me...

    how'd you get so big?
    how'd you get so strong?
    how'd it get so hard?
    how'd it get so long?

    I don't know why either. Closer is a good song and thats the only song I like. I hated With Teeth and Year Zero. I didn't like any songs on them, but I haven't heard the new one yet, so I'm not making decisions yet.

    I just don't dig his music.

    Trent Reznor's genius has nothing to do with being a good musician (which he is, but whatev). He has a vision, and unique ideas of how to make that vision happen.

    I kinda always thought of him as a watered-down, less interesting version of Maynard, really.

    holy crap, I can't type two words tonight without having to delete a letter or two...
