The songs on Welcome Oblivion are a little more subdued and atmospheric than the heavier industrial sound NIN is known for, with Maandig's voice softer and more ethereal than Reznor's typically aggressive vocals (which occasionally show up in the background). The sound is closest to the work Reznor did with Ross on the instrumental NIN album Ghosts I-IV and the soundtrack to The Social Network. Sometimes that means it's a little too diffuse and unfocused, and there's nothing here as immediately memorable as NIN's classic singles. But there are still plenty of well-crafted songs, including catchy lead single How Long? and the brittle, spooky Ice Age. This is a side project worth keeping around once Reznor heads back to his day job.
