Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails isn’t generally given to diverting any energy from his music by speaking much from the stage. But after playing the first of several encores at the Izod Center last night in East Rutherford, Reznor said he “felt suddenly possessed to talk.” The singer pointed out how primed he and his band mates and crew felt backstage, talking about they couldn’t wait to “blow these peoples’ minds tonight.” (Except that instead of “peoples,” he used a word that rhymes with truckers.)

Reznor and company went on to do just that, with a two-hour audiovisual, senses-blurring assault that made most arena-rock shows seem lazy and locked in the past. The leading-edge, three-dimensional lighting effects were spectacularly attuned to the intensity of the music, which was a blend of the sophisticated and the visceral, the electronic and the organic, the angst-driven and the moodily atmospheric.
