    I think my beef with the song is that I feel like it doesn't fit in the record. And his vocals. The song takes me out of the journey of the album.

    But its ok not to like that song.

    I love the song for the same reason I love echoplex. They don't sound like any other nin songs.

    It really surprised me that Reznor let the haters get to him so much that he killed it as a single.

    I definitely don't know what to think of the song. I... don't want to hate it. But I can't say I like it.

    I disagree, especially with the whole "Wave goodbye. Wish me well." bit. He's basically giving the middle finger to those who think he's going to fail.

    Sardonic. I don't find the song to be ironic at all, but it is definitely a middle finger, if you will.

    ---------------------------------------

    I listened to Hesitation Marks last night for the first time in several months, and 'Everything' really wasn't as bad as I had remembered. There is a "groove" that comes through nicely on headphones.

    I like it a lot, and it's definitely not the worst song on the album, in my opinion.

    I didn't really like it the first time I heard it. But after playing HM 4-5 times it grew on me. At first I thought the album up to Everything was strong while the second half was just ok. But after a few listens I found the album after Everything to be my favourite. Overall, I would put Everything in the middle of NIN's catalogue.

    Everything would have sounded awesome with the full live band, especially with Ilan on the drums and female singers.

    I don't like it.
    Also there was a parody someone made where they took the everything track and threw it over a kia soul commercial with the dancing hamsters. I can't find it, anyone have any ideas?

    Personnaly I dislike it very much.
    I still don't understand why Trent writes such a kind of songs (like THTF, TBOTE, 1000000 , CBH etc etc).
    Does he want more airplay?
    He has his name in music business and everybody knows where he stands for. You can get airplay also with more quality songs.

    But on the other hand, his journey through the compositions he'll make/he made from progressive stuff to commercial stuff is maybe the thrill he personally needs to give us all the good stuff.
    Also, it's awesome to see all the variant/ different music styles he stands for during a live concert. Very special to observe.

    Nope, but I remember this one pretty well. The fit was uncanny.

    I totally dig this song and probably even more now than i initially did when i first heard it but i also completely understand why folks don't take to it and i can't lie... i find the sync ups with the car commercials to be pretty spot on.

    I'm not sure he writes songs like that on purpose, I think it might be that there's a part of him as a songwriter that naturally goes in that direction because he has always had an ear for a melodic hook and has grown up listening to certain kinds of pop music. Juxtaposing noise or ugliness with impeccable melody has always been the basis of his craft, but I think he indulges that pop side of himself much more thoroughly for a couple of tracks on each album. And maybe at times there has even been pressure from record labels to do that, too.

    i've always loved the track. i find it's one of the better tracks off of hesitation marks and a fun track to have on in the car. it jumps out at me like a cleaned up version of getting smaller, but what gets me the most is the second half starting at around 2:00, it's a classic nin get-lost-in-the-beauty-of-the-build-up and ends in a gorgeous way. it's kinda like the pop version of tdtwwa or underneath it all

    It's not like this is a topic that came up in something else, this is a thread dedicated to the discussion. If you don't want to join in, then don't come to the thread? I don't want to do the "least favourite nin song from each album" thread, so I haven't posted there
