NINE INCH NAILS COVERED U2’s “ZOO STATION”
Nine Inch Nails may be done as a touring band, but it lives on as a recording project — which makes sense, since it’s really just Trent Reznor, and pretty much anything he does, be it How to Destroy Angels or film scores, sounds like NIN. So, um, yeah.
Nine Inch Reznor’s latest release is a cover of “Zoo Station” from U2’s last good album, Achtung Baby. The good news is, Reznor did not make a rote re-recording of the original song, and instead attempted to put his own unique spin on the material. The bad news is, the results are actually kind of boring, if not at all terrible. It’s interesting to note that his version of the tune is a full two minutes longer than the original; I guess Reznor felt like he really, really need extra time for all the semi-ambient computer noise.
Nine Inch Nails’ cover of U2’s “Zoo Station” is part of Q magazine’s tribute to Achtung Baby, which you can stream here.
