    i think "the fragile" is my favorite NIN record. which is to say 1 of my favorite records ever. maybe it could've used a little editing but what would you leave off? i probably could live without "starfuckers inc" but that song served its purpose. "ghosts" & "downward spiral" are close. "fragile" for me is kind of best of all worlds. just my ever so humble opinion...

    I'd say that Vietnam War soundtrack is pretty heavy and they use a bunch of Ghosts in it as well... so maybe just the right project hadn't come along to use that temperament.

    Few months ago I gave Ghosts's tracks my own custom names to recongize them better for myself.

    I have no idea now what Ghosts tracks people are talking about though if they talk about their favorite tracks there.


    (I named one of them "Is This Really What You Wanted?" which was before The Background World came out, so that's a cool concidence)

    i feel like it would make sense to name them based on the images that go with each one (a la aphex twin and selected ambient works vol ii)

    I named them each after listening to them fully and was using my imagination to determine how it sounds like to me and what emotion it is getting accross.

    Just curious, has anyone heard of the song Taken from Deviations 1 vinyl? I have never heard it before and cant seem to find it online, like how its blocked from some unknown company on YouTube.

    Are you asking if it's actually a song on Deviations? Because it is.

    i would assume that everyone who owns deviations has heard it

    and yeah, it's very interesting. dark but with a kinetic beat.

    I love that everything thats going on about the I Can't Seem To Wake Up tour seems to be an improvement from previous years, even stupid things, like Trent's wardrobe for this tour is my favorite one since Downward Spiral.

    A NIN cover of “Rock Me Amadeus” would be hilariously wonderful.

    Considering he's (probably) a Falco fan as he did an awful cover of Der Kommisar, I'd rather hear something like Naked or Coming Home, he could lay something interesting on that

    No, we need to get a proper NIN version of Der Kommisar.

    Legit, listen to Naked and tell me you couldn't hear PHM/Broken era NIN doing that

    After seeing the Houston poster, I was hoping to get a new song debuted at Day For Night.

    Besides “Somewhat Damaged” opening in 2006. I would have to agree 100%.

    Tbh, an official collected EP with all the random b-side tracks floating around would be really nice.

    Theme for Tetsuo: The Bullet Man
    Juno
    Hallowe'en
    Theme from Call of Duty: Black Ops II


    Possibly these, too:
    Zoo Station
    The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters
    Speaking In Tongues


    (Also, Before The Flood on CD).

    There may be others. I forget.

    Somewhat Damaged is the theme where I'm at right now with the damn holiday season. It's getting harder to deal with every year.

    The second I get a CD I digitize it and it lives in the cloud where I can enjoy in my car stereo, home system, cell phone, friends' house, etc...then the CD becomes a frisbee or a coaster. I did enjoy CDs back in the 1990s, but with modern tech I prefer digital when I'm on the go. When I'm home in my man cave, where I've invested in a very decent turntable system, I think I'm on board with Trent on this one. I enjoy holding the artwork and physically flipping vinyl because it draws me into the experience more. Vinyl is great if you can afford a nice system and you enjoy sitting down and blocking out the rest of the world for a few minutes.

    But, I totally hope it comes out on CD for the people that still like CDs! Sorry though, you didn't fix my comment...to me you just made a typo.

    A Deep Cuts Volume 2 torrent is, I think, the best we can hope for. Licensing problems would be a bit tricky to get it all on one disc.

    Thing is, it's released via Sacred Bones and they're not an evil capitalistic money grabbing label, they just do ~cool stuff~. So maybe not

    ^ I'm aware, but they probably won't license it for free. So the most economical thing is probably for a bigger label to throw it (and the other stray tracks listed above) on as a bonus track in a big TR+AR box set. Someday...

    Since the removal of the forums and user remix, I hardly ever go to the nin.com site.

    If they do another tour, “Closer” should be preformed in the full-length album version.

    It would be great to hear them perform “I Can’t Give Everything Away” and “This Isn’t The Place” back to back.

    They should pick one show and perform all the (non-ghosts) songs in the library that have never been done live before.
