Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has praised David Bowie's new album 'The Next Day' while also criticising Arcade Fire.

Reznor revealed that he is still "unravelling" Bowie's surprise 2013 release and praised the album for its musical invention, even if he originally thought it was conservative in its musicality. Bowie released 'The Next Day', his first studio album since 2003's 'Reality', in March of this year.

"I'm still unraveling the riddle that he presented. I'm still getting new meanings out of the lyrics. What I thought was conservative production now feels forward-thinking. Like any great album, it's revealed itself to be something that wasn't what I initially thought," Reznor wrote in The Hollywood Reporter.

The frontman went on to praise the surprise nature of 'The Next Day', citing Arcade Fire as a band who have over done their own marketing in 2013. "The marketing, too, felt like a breath of fresh air. It wasn't like the Arcade Fire album ['Reflektor'] and its yearlong rollout, where it was like, "OK, I get it. You've got an album out, you've played every TV show in the world."

Nine Inch Nails tour the UK next year, with the Trent Reznor fronted band playing six arena shows across the country, starting at Birmingham LG Arena on May 18, 2014, before shows at Glasgow Hydro Arena on May 20, Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on May 21, London O2 Arena on May 23, Nottingham Capital FM Arena on May 24 and Manchester Phones4u Arena on May 25.

Birmingham LG Arena (May 18, 2014)
