  1. Stylus Magazine 91 Current yet sounding potentially classic already... Reznor forces himself further into the mainstream with With Teeth--but on his own terms.
  2. E! Online 83 More in line with his tighter debut, Pretty Hate Machine, With Teeth is made up of bursts of dark, scary and paranoid gut punches.
  3. Splendid 80 With Teeth's biggest surprise is how immediately gratifying the majority of its songs are.
  4. Drawer B 70 For a guy that has so little to say with so few ways to say it, Trent Reznor has mastered the art of making what is old sound new again.
  5. Rolling Stone 70 On Teeth, he abandons the quiet piano diddles of The Fragile for pure aggro. [5 May 2005, p.70] All this publication's reviews
  6. Pitchfork 65 With Teeth manages to flip the script on Reznor's recent M.O. Instead of fronting like a more feminine Al Jourgensen-- hard, coarse, yet not totally abrasive-- Reznor comes across as the masculine yin to Shirley Manson's alluring yang: playful, coy, and with a flair for the dramatic.
  7. Village Voice 30 A record that's half as long as The Fragile but just as plodding and mummified.

I wasn't a big fan of the last album, but this one has a fresh feel with beautiful, pain driven sounds. Unlike some other albums, the darkness is (welcomely) broken up a bit by some funkier songs in the middle of the album. All of it is pure NIN, but the last few tracks meld seamlessly into a masterful ending.… Expand

I'm happy to say it didn't happen. Only two, maybe three radio type songs, very little thrash...gets better with every listen.… Expand

Even if there are few lyrical improvements bar his alcohol enslavement, he had certainly been working on his vocal skills. 'All The Love In The World', 'The Hand That Feeds', 'You Know What You Are', 'Every Day Is Exactly The Same' and particularly 'Beside You In Time' are the highlights to me off the whole record.… Expand
  6. Clark Sep 3, 2006 8 What people seem to forget when reviewing "With Teeth" is that it simply isn't the 1990s anymore. If Mr. Reznor gave us another What people seem to forget when reviewing "With Teeth" is that it simply isn't the 1990s anymore. If Mr. Reznor gave us another electronic-soaked album with simple but true lyrics, people would complain that he's giving us the same thing since 1989. Not so. Personally, I believe this to be NIN's worst album, but what you have to remember is that NIN's worst is better than most band's best. I'd rather listen to this than anything playing on the radio today. "Right Where It Belongs" is a great tune that sounds like it could have been on "The Fragile". Reznor reminds us that he can still produce a sexy hit, with "Only" and to a certain degree, "Sunspots". The lyrics are still simple, yet true. Worth the money I paid for it, and its getting a proper amount of play right now. Thank you, Trent!… Expand
