    Edit. Wrong thread. NIN is cool. Travis Scott digs NIN.

    I'm surprised and a little disappointed that the new nin hasn't been as blatantly political as YZ.
    Maybe the third ep will be.

    I really want We're In This Together to be played live again. I like the live version alot more than the album version. Don't get me wrong the album version is nice and all but it just hits harder in a live setting.

    ^^^ I don’t recall TR “disowning” AATCHB at all. That’s out of left field for me.

    "Live 2013 EP" is REALLY good. I wish he'd release more seeds like this. "Came back Haunted" From lollapalooza is HYPE

    The Q&A's from 2004 have him saying something similar to this: "i can't watch it at all. i was sick for most of that tour and i really don't think it was nine inch nails at it's best -- i was certainly not at MY best."

    In light of the 'new' AV and NTAE material, and a full tour at the horizon, just watched the official ninVEVO videos from Dec 2013 of The Big Come Down into While I'm Still Here again... fuckin' A, simply just got blown away...

    I think the live version of Sanctified from 2013 / Tension is one of the most exciting and enjoyable things NIN-wise I've listened to over the last 4 years. And I love the recent EPs.

    First of, I find the new material absolutely stunning. However, to get a proper grip on them (and I'm not talking digital) is another story, as you and plenty others mentioned. I only received my NTAE vinyl this week (ordered back last December) and have it on permanent rotation since then. Still, it doesn't feel that new anymore with all the strings attached in the ordering process (not mentioning my problems with TF Deviations 1 here). Let's see for the AV vinyl...

    ah, i thought you were implying (like some others have) that parts of the new EPs were actually recorded during previous sessions and weren't completely new (which i disagree with completely). thanks for clearing that up!

    The dun dun dun part of Ruiner, and the noise in the background (I have always said it reminds me of a water faucet dripping, idk why) never fails to give me goosebumps

    I noticed that the "wind" noise that plays throughout is very similar in The Lovers and Not Anymore. It always reminds me of a horror movie or something, infact alot of TDS is very dark sounding and I love that shit. Trent and Flood really knew what they were doing on that album.

    I was really pleased that they brought it back this year for the surprise NYC show. I only got to see it in 2014 when Ilan was playing the bass part, would have been amazing to hear Pino tackle it in his style as he did on some of the Tension shows (not the one I saw, unfortunately).

    I love walking late at night while listening to Not The Actual Events and Add Violence, it makes the atmosphere within the songs so much more real and exciting, it makes songs like She's Gone Away, Not Anymore, The Lovers etc very scary in a good way

    I did this early in the summer, before AV came out. Decided at 2am to walk a mile to the closest gas station while listening to NTAE. It really is a different atmosphere doing it that way.

    Now this is turly random.

    In one of my many 'strange' dreams i was part of an 80s/90s movie wherein a bunch of teens are killed in a remote location by witches (stay with me).
    I escaped by flying away keeping low to the ground so as not to be noticed but everyone else was killed.
    Now in order to bring them back i had to figure out the truth of death, which is that the afterlife is a combination of 2 records you last listened to. Once i realized this i figured out i was the one who died, not the others, and was here to warn everyone. But not before the last record i listened to, Deviations, had come back to kill me. Seriously the record had half a head with empty white eyes and long, uneven teeth it used to constantly rip into me and anyone who got close...then i woke up.

    ...i look at my Deviations LP rather differently now.

    And even more so when you include the "Devil's flesh and bone" part.

    I find myself feeling opposite to this. While I do agree that I'm also surprised it is not as politically-charged as I expected (especially since it alludes connections to Year Zero and the ARG), I am very thankful it is not.

    Same. YZ already gave us the head-on political stuff, and based near current era (with some things eventually becoming true or near-true). It could risk repetition, or going too close to ideas already explored.

    I get the feeling that Aaron and Twiggy teased Alessandro when they all toured together.

    Anyone here reading the little blurbs in the NIN discography?

    I thought And All That Could Have Been has an interesting description and wonder what Trent means by "WORKING ON IT" when he brings up being out of print. Will we be getting a reissue?

    Also Besides You In Time says "THE VIDEO PORTION EXISTS SOMEWHERE."

    so it's not as much disowning as it's just being and artist and growing from some of your past aesthetic choices I guess

    With all due respect, I don't think it has anything to do with aesthetic choices. He remembers what state of mind he was in and can probably remember or at least tell by watching himself what he felt like back then and how fucked up he was. It's just not enjoyable to see video footage of yourself from the worst period of your life. I wouldn't say disowning as much as not wanting to revisit the past and be reminded of that time in his life.
