I listened to "Just Like You Imagined" for the first time in a long time yesterday and holy CRAP is that song amazing. Like, I don't remember ever liking it that much but now I love it.

I am also kind of shocked by the fact that it's been 15 years but that album is STILL growing on me. It wasn't until last year that I finally came around on "No, You Don't" (a song I now love) and it wasn't until the last couple of years that I have really started to appreciate it. I always liked it, but now it's one of my favorite albums. I don't know how it took so long.

newsflash:
there is nothing in the NIN canon that is "purely" Reznor. every single project he's done he's had help from people, whether Vrenna, Flood, Moulder, Ross, or any number of other collaborators. He's an auteur who brings all of this stuff together to his vision.
Pretty sure Reznor has nothing to do with NIN. He's just a puppet for us to worship. Josh Wink is the one really pulling the strings.

Probably was, I wouldn't consider him a saint now either. But remember that this is a conversation happening between people who don't see each other eye to eye anymore, and who have spent difficult years together. Bad blood is bound to happen.
The fact that Atticus remained in NIN after all this time probably means that either Reznor has improved his communication skills, or that he found somebody who is more accepting of the mercenary nature of the job...

I recently read some NIN book by some guy that had quote's from TVTs Stebe Gottlieb. According to him TVT never treated NIN un fairly and even went as far as saying that they provided him with a lot of effort while marketing PHM. He said that he never owed Trent money and when an audit was done it turned out that TVT had over paid him. He also mentioned that meeting with Trent were very rare and that everything went through John A Malm who Gottlieb thought was manipulating the situation. Interesting int he context of what would happen later on.

Perhaps it was management that was responsible for what people like Vrenna got paid without much of Trent knowledge.

I always liked it, but now it's one of my favorite albums. I don't know how it took so long.

Ever since my first listen, after which I was only really crazy about a handful of tracks, the "gaps," so to speak, have mostly been filled in over time. ILFTJYF and Ripe are probably the only ones that I've never fully connected with. Though it's not uncommon for this to happen with me and albums, I think The Fragile's slow growth is particularly noteworthy, given the amount of tracks and the enormity of the album.

JLYI is in IMO the best example of the album's insane amount of layers and meticulous detail that went into it. Even 10-12 years after first hearing it, there are new things that every now and then pop out to surprise me.

This is why I think it's so important that a 5.1 version sees the light of day: when the channels get separated, there will be things buried deep that will be slightly easier to pick out and will give just a little bit different take on the album. With Teeth's 5.1 had a few of those moments for me, and I think TF's sonic complexity far surpasses that.

There is a definite resemblance, but if I had to guess his "Back at it, folks. If only just for a minute." caption would refer to rehearsing for Beck's appearance at The Grammys.

I like how it actually mentions tacos because The Downward Spiral's album cover actually reminded me of tacos, burritos and tortilla chips. And well, thanks to Closure, Tostitos also comes to mind.

I also liked how Meathead pointed that out in this article as well.

We don't know the full story. Clouser might be the arsehole. For all we know, he could have made the whole thing up. Or it might have been someone posing as him messing with us.
Regardless, the work he did with NIN was excellent and his remixes are insanely good.

I see what you're saying, and I might be wrong obviously but I find both hypotheses unlikely. The accounts are too detailed and his description of Reznor's behavior is consistent with other sources and instances. That doesn't mean the story isn't way more complicated than it appears, and judging any party on the basis of forum posts would be ridiculous, especially after all this time.

No, it was on the old dead board. Trust us, it was really him. We were there. They traced an IP address, there was other evidence, people were PMing him, etc.

The biggest issue at the time was Jerome and the source of his illness, "suddenly" getting sick on the brink of a huge arena tour (the implication was that Jerome knew all along and ignored it, drank booze, abused himself and didn't tell anyone so he was a tour liability), leaving TR to scramble for a drummer, then people were bitching on here and on NIN.com about how TR looked to have left Jerome by the side of a tour bus after he got out of the hospital and hired another drummer, then Jerome's later nasty comments about TR, then TR vented about Jerome (and deleted some of his own nasty comments), then Charlie showed up to kind of, I dunno, counsel Jerome to stfu? In a humorous way? Hence that whole AAVE (ebonics) thing, giving it more levity? (there's probably more inside story to that, too, but we shouldn't get into it)

Like Khrz said, it all read like years of bad blood being aired (TR's comments, Charlie's honest stories some of which we KNOW are true). Like a soap opera. Charlie ADMITTED that he was doing other work on TR's dime and it was bad, and that he should have quit instead of getting paid by TR to do work for other people and sort of understood why TR got pissed and threw his gear into the dumpster (message: being ripped off don't go over lightly). But I sincerely doubt the Tapeworm failure was all TRs fault. And Malm redirecting calls sure as shit wasn't.

In the history of ETS, this is what is known as "drift" and in the old days, discussions like this could get you a "warning bar" and then you'd get the dreaded "flood control." i beg to differ. A member posted a random NIN story. That story inspired me to have random NIN thoughts, about the story as it relates to NIN. I'm pretty damn sure that I was in the right thread. Why you breaking my balls? I wouldn't have said anything if the story was about nirvana or acdc. It was a random nin thought.

I've wanted Trent to get involved in Silent Hill for a while now. Akira Yamaoka has openly listed NIN as one of the biggest influences on his score, and the hidden Ghosts track that wasn't the Demon Seed demo seemed to be straight out of SH. In general Trent doing anything horror-related would be great.
elevenism I'm kind of surprised Trent's not released any EPs digitally and has continued to focus so much on album cycles. Considering his constant recording and involvement in different things, I'd figure he'd be all for releasing a set of 4-6 songs with maybe a vinyl release as well for NIN. Broken being the only EP (and please let's not start debating whether it is or not, I'm talking just in the general sense) has always surprised me. Maybe the greatest hits release is going to come out this year? He openly said on Instagram he's making new music, maybe it's a couple of bonus tracks like how Satellite and Everything were meant as bonus tracks to make it a worthwhile release for collectors/hardcore fans rather than a typical "best of" release.

Trent makes albums. It's not just like some artists who churn out unrelated songs and music, he builds up a sound/idea over an LP. Yeah he could probably do an EP every now and then instead (and doing the odd Still-esque release would be great), but putting out a NIN EP every year means you'd end up with a lot of music and not a lot of NIN.

I almost entirely agree, it's still surprising to me though. Considering the two HTDA EPs (and I get An Omen was meant as a teaser/appetizer for Welcome Oblivion to make up for the wait time) he's certainly not against the concept.

An Omen was totally a sampler - only 2 original tracks after all. And he uses the concept with the Seed releases, which of course are so easy to get now they're no longer hosted #sarcasim

Digital/vinyl I'm ~OK~ with, as CD is a dying medium etc, but there's still a lot of CD users - but it's still not great. Digital only is just crap, it limits the people who can hear it (not everyone has great bandwidth/DL cap, not everyone is in a country that can download etc); it lowers the value of the music by just churning out digital files; it's rarely offered in high quality; it means people who actually want to support a record store, or who can't download due to not having a card have to pirate or not have it; it devalues the album art to a jpeg; it creates false rarity when tracks go offline; it often promotes a sole retailer (Beats, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon exclusives etc). Yes, if you're a small band, or just putting out some acoustic versions you made last week for some quick cash, digital is fine. If you can afford it, and/or are making proper music, put it on something tangible.

If you can afford it, and/or are making proper music, put it on something tangible.



Can you tell I don't like digital music?


Oh I definitely agree with you, no contest. I love physically collecting things, and I couldn't stand not having actual album art. The amount of CDs and records now that have hardly no artwork beyond the front and back cover is incredibly irritating; Hesitation Marks was fantastic for artwork.

I hate that I pretty much have no way of getting most of the seeds since they're dead. I really wanted the one with Not So Pretty Now and Non-Entity, but can't find it anywhere where it'll actually download. I don't see why they're not all officially hosted on the main NIN site.

I loved how much artwork there was across all things. The single covers, the artwork promo teaser, the deluxe CD, alternate cover art, the vinyl insert and sleeves and gatefold; Russell Mills made a ton of gorgeous work for it and I'm happy so much got released.

ILFTJYF and Ripe are probably the only ones that I've never fully connected with. I love "Ripe (With Decay)" but I can see why someone wouldn't. It took awhile to grow on me. ILFTJYF is ok, one of my least favorites from the album, but the second half of that song (after the drums really kick in) is pretty fantastic.

The song that took awhile to grow on me was My Violent Heart. First song to tease Year Zero and it did not click with me. I liked Me, Im Not and Survivalism but something about MVH turned me off. Then one day about a year ago it came on and blew me away! The chorus and outro being the highlights for me. Its amazing how that works, not liking something, and then one day it totally clicks. Its not like i heard it and never listened to it again till a year ago. I tried to like it and failed. Its weird how time and hindsight/perspective, and where you are at in your life can completely affect a song you have heard countless times over many years.

On the opposite side i always LOVED You Know What You Are. It was a song that told me NIN was still NIN. Still aggressive and loud even though TR was older and wiser. It was almost a return to Broken for me. Now listening to it, it has lost some of its luster. Now its TOO loud and in your face. I dont hate it but i dont specifically search it out to put it on. MVH i do though now. Its like a new song to me.

An Omen was totally a sampler - only 2 original tracks after all. And he uses the concept with the Seed releases, which of course are so easy to get now they're no longer hosted #sarcasim

Digital/vinyl I'm ~OK~ with, as CD is a dying medium etc, but there's still a lot of CD users - but it's still not great. Digital only is just crap, it limits the people who can hear it (not everyone has great bandwidth/DL cap, not everyone is in a country that can download etc); it lowers the value of the music by just churning out digital files; it's rarely offered in high quality; it means people who actually want to support a record store, or who can't download due to not having a card have to pirate or not have it; it devalues the album art to a jpeg; it creates false rarity when tracks go offline; it often promotes a sole retailer (Beats, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon exclusives etc). Yes, if you're a small band, or just putting out some acoustic versions you made last week for some quick cash, digital is fine. If you can afford it, and/or are making proper music, put it on something tangible.

Can you tell I don't like digital music?

I can understand why you'd want there to be options, and if you're talking specifically about Trent putting something up only on Beats - yeah, that's obnoxious.

But a lot of those arguments against digital (download or streaming) music can be applied to other media in some cases. CDs and definitely vinyl can create a much bigger issue with rarity. They can be very hard to get for some (they don't have a record store near them, or the right record store, or they don't live in the country where the album is produced), leading people to pirate. CDs can also promote one seller, like Target exclusive tracks. Digital files might only be available at low quality, but they are often available at higher quality than audio CD.

For a small band that can just afford to make physical releases, you're talking about a few CDs or cassette tapes sold at concerts or to friends or maybe 50 or so for sale on Bandcamp. It can definitely be a seller-exclusive rarity with low quality sound and artwork that is just churned out on a CD burner and copy machine.

For sure. I discovered awhile ago that listening to the instrumental versions of YZ and The Slip helped me to appreciate some of those tracks better, too. Notably (for me at least) MVH, MIN, Head Down, and Letting You. I guess hearing them without the vocals made me notice and appreciate some of the nuances, and that appreciation stuck around once I went back to the normal versions w/ vocals.

Between TDS and TF, there was Closure in 95 anf TPD in 97.
And:
the Closer maxi-single
Further Down The Spiral
Quake soundtrack
Lost Highway (+ The Perfect Drug)
Natural Born Killers
Dead Souls from The Crow
Remixes for Puff Daddy, N.E.R.D., David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, and probably others. He was also producing MM at that time, I think.
Oh, and some of the biggest tours thus far, notably Woodstock and the Dissonance tour with Bowie.

So yeah, that was an amazing time to be a NIN fan despite the five year wait between albums.

I agree that any one format has issues - which is why my argument really is against format exclusivity. As much as I love, say, Record Store Day and Cassette Store Day, the fact that most of these are exclusives is a real pisstake. Release in the widest means you are able, and never give PLATFORM exclusivity even if you are bound to FORMAT exclusivity due to funding issues.

The downside is clueless younger people thinking Nine Inch Nails is a new, unheard of thing a la the Paul McCartney/Kanye West incident. Hell, Missy Elliott couldn't even avoid that when she appeared during the Super Bowl Hafltime Show. The bigger problem to this though is that it's a more common thing to have a misconception be known now since so many people use Social Media these days. Back in the day, if you never heard of someone, you couldn't post about it on the Internet for the world to see.

....so? You think it's bad that people might discover NIN for the first time and enjoy it, but under the impression it's new? Do you also think it's bad when people think Cash wrote Hurt, but they still love NIN's version?

That problem on social media is a problem with those doing the ridiculing, not those being ridiculed. Everyone has misconceptions, so, by itself, making a factual mistake on the internet is not a big deal. The problem arises when certain people act upon their desire to express superiority over some other group of people and pair that with their prejudices about that group. Then you get a bunch of those tweets saying "look at this stupid young person" (double points if they're female) that, for some reason, the internet media loves reporting on.

Speaking about misconceptions, not all Taylor Swift fans are young, and not all those young fans are clueless. I happen to be a pretty big Taylor Swift fan. I'm 33, so I don't think I qualify as a young person. But, also, I've been on the TS forum a lot, and there are fans that of all ages. I can think of a few people over 50 off the top of my head. Yes, there's a concentration of fans in the late teens/early 20s just like there's a concentration of NIN fans that are just about 15 years older. (And, hey! NIN has been releasing music for about 15 years longer than TS.)

As for being clueless, yeah, young people don't know about some older music but neither do most people. There's definitely a large number of TS fans that have become a lot more interested in music because of TS, and a lot are inspired to write music, learn to play an instrument/sing, or join a band. (Kind of how I was inspired by NIN to start writing music. Hmm...) As for general life cluelessness, talking to a lot younger TS fans, I learned that there are plenty of younger people that are smart, have different of (hard) life experiences, and even share a lot of the same interests. I would say that a lot of younger people somewhat lack perspective (meaning simply that they've experienced fewer things) and have a lot of questions - and that's why they're on social media, to interact with new people and learn more.

(Writing all this makes me realize how weird it is to call social media a new thing that young people do. I mean, I was on the SLS forum (and whatever the big MM fan forums were) almost 20 years ago. I guess I'm a young person, too.)

EDIT: Just did a search on the TS message board. 11 mentions of Nine Inch Nails (I wrote two of them) but no mention of the mashup. (Mostly people listening to NIN at the moment, saying NIN's one of their favorite groups, saying they went to or are going to a NIN concert.)

I remember people complaining about that, because, when thinking sensibly, a track list should have clickable links. I get the "one link for a thing" rule, but at least put them in the track list. It's really annoying.

...Should I mention that in the NINWiki thread? It's bothered me for years.

I didn't see a BRMC thread, and I figured that what I was going to post had a relevance to NIN fans anyway, so:

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club announced the release of their new DVD, titled "Live In Paris". They announced it yesterday, February 17th. The concert happened last year, on Februray 24th. That means a year between performance and DVD announcement. The set itself will come out in May.


If memory serves me right, the last concert that NIN taped took place in August, right? Well, this is just another one of those "there's still hope" posts. I know Bill will come over here and shit all over it, but it's still too soon to dismiss this NIN DVD set as something that's not happening.

I am blown away. I just decided to give Year Zero another listen after years of disregarding it. I was 17 when I last listened to the album, but at the time I didn't pay attention to sound the way I do now; no attention to room tones or reverbs, delays, eq, noise and ambience, drum sounds vs samples... I also was turned off by the political message in Year Zero because I felt that I knew nothing of politics or what was going on in the world. I felt I couldn't understand it. Plus Mr. Capital G was someone I never studied but everyone else just new he was an asshole. I was always like, hm, he is eh?

Now, after gone through the whole album, the sounds and the message, the amount of personality and style in the music; it's simply fascinating to me. Now I'm just fantasizing Trent in some movie or real life Apocalypse and I can just see him as this hardened street smart man trying to help people out in life or death situations; intimidating and angry on the outside but caring and helpful on the inside. I can just imagine the music as an epic anthem to the times.

Man, did I ever miss out I mean I'm 21 now and I started listening to NIN when I was 15. And that alternate reality game.... Holy shit man what the fuck was that all about?

Hey, am I the only person that thinks that NIN comes very close to music we hear in our dreams? What I mean is, the immense amount of subtlety in the sound, the variation, things sneaking up on you or sounds flashing and bouncing off of Trent's voice and moving around. Like shit I seriously feel like sometimes, NIN is just dreamy. lol. I mean just creamy. No, I mean just like a fantasty. Yeah, like a fantasy.

Maybe it's because sometimes I hear NIN in my dreams, and often the music is just full of mystery; changing and morphing in front of my eyes, but never in a way that I can completely follow and comprehend.

I just thought it was nice to see that you appreciate Year Zero a lot more now. It's also one of my most favorite albums that came out after The Fragile, and as I've also mentioned in the Nine Inch Nails dream thread, I've also had dreams of NIN as well. I've even dreamed a bit about being in Closure and And All That Could Have Been (Live).

It's also been a while since I've given Purest Feeling a proper listen, and I just love it, especially the way the drums and guitars build up on and off each other. I can't imagine having Purest Feeling not getting me sold and hooked on NIN should it have been my introduction to NIN. I also thought that this particular YouTube URL of Purest Feeling would've been worth sharing.

Thanks for sharing. I love the Purest Feeling stuff. Those were the days... Very different times for sure. Everything after that ends up getting people either understanding it or just thinking it's generic rock when it really is much more. When you see his old school origins, you can't deny them NIN. The dude's in their leather jackets, combat boots, and shaved heads, the tape machines, the samplers... mm... Not to mention Trents nickname which I'm not sure he uses anymore; T-Rez back in the late 80's and early 90's...

I'm actually going to post a video on my favorite Pretty Hate Machine and Purest Feeling synth patches. I spent a couple weekends sampling my favorite sounds from those early albums, and I also worked on trying to emulate those sounds with my own 80's synths.

It took almost one whole decade, but The Collector is actually one of my favorite songs from With Teeth as of now. I also appreciate Getting Smaller a lot more than I did when With Teeth first came out as well, since I can relate a lot more to it now. Getting Smaller also seems to go very well with the mood Every Day Is Exactly The Same sets for me. Everything also somehow got me to like Getting Smaller a bit more too. I'm also only saying this because I'd often skip The Collector and Getting Smaller, and I've been listening to both songs a lot more than I ever did before.

As far as collecting Nine Inch Nails albums on vinyl goes, I suppose that my next main selections would have to be Pretty Hate Machine, Broken and The Fragile.

(And then perhaps With Teeth and Ghosts I-IV afterwards.)

I don't really collect vinyl regularly at all though, but should I get both the chances and the means, I'll definitely still keep those releases in mind.

It also took me a while to notice this, but this currently seems to be the best full length video of Nine Inch Nails performing at Woodstock 1994 on YouTube as of now. It's the actual Music Vault account.

I know for some people they love the decorative effect of having larger artwork, framing it, etc., but by and large I'd say it's much more satisfying to get an album you love on vinyl and be able to actually listen to it than to just get it, look at it, and put it down forever. Especially considering some of the prices of things like The Fragile.

Anybody notice Trent's latest tweet -- a retweet in support of Queen Kwong's show in London. I don't get it because their music is pretty terrible in my opinion. You can watch a set in the video below. Pretty pretty awful. I don't get Trent's support of it at all.
I thought it was weird too, but for different reasons. With all the recent discussion here about Trent's distaste for Limp Bizkit and whether Wes Borland was a sellout to go back, I was poking around since I know nothing about Borland (or LB) and that led me to Queen Kwong because he's in the band.

I've decided that Black Light Burns is mediocre and I still know diddly about Limp Bizkit (maybe just as well), but I do like Queen Kwong. Looking forward to her album this year.

Sooooooo … after all that, it was very weird indeed to see her pop up in Trent's long-neglected Twitter feed two weeks later.

I've decided that one of these days I will take a listen to NIN from the newest album all the way back to whenever. Simply because it's been so long since I've actually listened to any of their/his music that I might appreciate it better after a long break. I remember enjoying With Teeth UNTIL I started really listening to all the earlier albums. I want to listen to it all without my teenage angst right behind me, so this might be a journey I take in another five years (at age 30). I say this because I remember listening to 10,000 Days by Tool when it came out and I did not like it at all. Then, I listened to it again....6 years later and I could not understand what I was thinking because I thoroughly enjoy it now.

So yeah, I'm wondering if the same thing will happen with NIN.

I listened to The Downward Spiral for the very first time in 2002. It became an instant favorite, and the first minute of Mr Self Destruct let me know that Nine Inch Nails was going to be my favorite musician. (I also listened to Broken at the same though, so it was also kind of the same case with the first 30 seconds of Wish.) I actually kept replaying the first 23 seconds of Mr Self Destruct a few times before letting the entire song play. My most favorite tracks aside from Closer, March Of The Pigs and Hurt have also seemed to remain the same. (It's kind of hard to narrow down most favorite songs from an album that is already a favorite, but I tried and this is what I still got, and it hasn't changed one bit from my recollection.)

I think "Everything" should have been the last song Nine Inch Nails ever released. There's something about the chord progression and structure that makes it's so unique among the rest of NIN's discography and the melody has this powerful, uplifting way about it. The lyrics are that of finally beating anything that had been put in your way and with Nine Inch Nails, the music always felt like to me, the internal struggle we sometimes find in ourselves and this song feels like finally being able to breathe for the first time in so long. Hell, even the end of the song sounds like someone's floating away and at peace.

I've always liked that song a lot.

I listened to The Downward Spiral for the very first time in 2002. It became an instant favorite, and the first minute of Mr Self Destruct let me know that Nine Inch Nails was going to be my favorite musician. (I also listened to Broken at the same though, so it was also kind of the same case with the first 30 seconds of Wish.) I actually kept replaying the first 23 seconds of Mr Self Destruct a few times before letting the entire song play. My most favorite tracks aside from Closer, March Of The Pigs and Hurt have also seemed to remain the same. (It's kind of hard to narrow down most favorite songs from an album that is already a favorite, but I tried and this is what I still got, and it hasn't changed one bit from my recollection.)

Thanks for reminding me of that song. I haven't listened to HM since it came out but I always loved Everything and how it caused everyone to shit their pants. It's like the brother of "We're in this together" in its contrast against the darker songs. Great production, tight as hell with an awesome wall of sound.

I find Maybe Just Once very fun to sing along to, and liked how my voice seemed to fit in so well with that song. However, I think I messed up the chorus because I had my desires, wishes and overall yearning for a relationship in mind. This was also when I randomly sang the chorus without it playing.

Out of nowhere, I actually sang, "Maybe. Maybe just once, I'll get somebody." which would've already turned it to "Maybe. Maybe just once, I'll get somebody for me." if I continued. (And I did just that for fun.)

I 've been trying to master the HIS synth destruction solo for about a month now. It does not help that there are no tabs, transcribed sheet music, or midi files.There's only YouTube video lessons, and maybe it's just me ,but I find it easier to learn a song from sheet music or a tab than just watching a video.

Here's what you should do: "Personally, I don't like Everything."

This is what you do: "Everything sucks. If you like it you suck Trent's balls."

Personally I think its sad that Trent let fan reaction determine whether to play something, but its hard to deny that that was the reason. It's not like it's my favourite on the album and I'd have gone with Satellite, but I still want to see the video dammit

theres a reason he never played Everything. Dont act like it was just a fluke he never played it. He rehearsed it and made a video and even had it on setlists and shelved it because the reaction was so horrible...I guess I wasnt the only one who disliked it. I didnt make the unicorn video


I'm tired of arguing with TR ballsuckers, this is so 2013. we get it. Tension was the best tour ever, Everything is as good as anything on Fragile, the backup singers>>>>Downward Spiral tour.

...and nobody has ever called me out for my "behavior"...

Sorry, but I beg to differ. Mainly because I've been one of the people who HAVE called you out on your behavior.

So you either have to think something is the best thing ever or the worst thing ever? You're right. That IS boring. What a narrow view of things. No wonder you get so pissed off all the time. Look, I liked Everything. I thought Tension was an interesting change of pace. Hesitation Marks and How To Destroy Angels are good stuff overall. But do I think all of that is the absolute epitome of music? Absolutely not, and I'm sure most people who like those things feel the same way. The fact that you insist that anyone who DOES like those things feels that way definitely shows your ignorance, despite being the almighty authority on everything Trent.

regardless of your feelings on the song, I'm not convinced its so bad to let fan reaction guide you. we don't perform in a vacuum. I recall an interview with TR saying he had doubts about including the song at all; the popular response can sway you one or the other.

art is tricky, I guess -- you've gotta believe in yourself and stay true to yourself, but who you are can change from day to day, and everybody should be open to criticism. it would be one thing if he came out thinking it was the best thing he's ever done, fuck the haters. but he came out pretty tepid, and the only way you really have to gauge things is by what other people think. I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with that.

You do not know more than everyone else. Hell I'd say BRoswell's a pretty well-versed person, with no less knowledge than you.

Also I call you out for your behaviour all the time.

And we're not TR ballsuckers. I think HM was his weakest NIN album yet, I love Everything but most of it I can leave. I love HTDA but that's because of Mariqueen's voice, and if TR left I literally would not care. You're not special or smart for thinking that TF and TDS are his best, that's just opinion. And there is no absolute "best album", there is no absolute best tour, there are opinions. But you don't have opinions, you make claims that music must be bad because YOU don't like it. I thought Mantra was boring but everyone else seemed to love it - that means that I'm not wrong, and I'm not right. Because I didn't like it, but I'm not saying it's bad.

You don't like Everything - stop talking about it.
You don't like HTDA - stop talking about them.
You don't like the current line up - stop talking about it.
You don't like NIN - stop coming to All The Sin.



Edit: and, as an addendum: we don't know why Trent doesn't play most of the songs he doesn't. Maybe an initial backlash made him not play Everything, maybe it didn't fit in the set, maybe he made an exclusive deal to play it at a show that fell through. He doesn't play EDIETS and pulled the video on that, but you're not saying that's a travesty. And Hurt and MOTP's videos were pulled too.

I've really been wondering how it is they'd go about sequencing a Fragile special edition reissue. I'd personally hope they'd resequence it to include TNF, 10 Miles High, Appendage, etc., and I'd hate to see those things relegated to a bonus disc, but at the same time know that more than likely they'd not touch the CD tracklisting.

I really, really wish there had been more music videos for Hesitation Marks. The art trailer with Eater of Dreams was a really cool visual compliment to it. Maybe it's from working on film scores in-between TS and HM, but a lot of HM has a very cinematic, visual quality to it. Copy of a not getting a video still surprises me, really. In general I just dislike that we're in an era where music videos are either a novelty or an after-thought by and large at this point; NIN just goes very well with visuals.

I'm hoping there's not new NIN until next year, mainly because I'd hope that by then Trent would be interesting in doing some touring, even if it isn't the giant year long globe-trotting extravaganza 2013/14 was. It would just be weird to get a new album with no tour for it, if that makes sense.

That's how I have it sequenced in my playlist, but the CD/cassette versions of the songs are fine instead of the longer vinyl ones. Disc Left is a perfect CD, no need to touch it or break up the segues like the vinyl sides do.

Well, if Trent and Mariqueen's instagram is anything to go by, it's pretty clear Trent is taking 2015 off. So yeah, I wouldn't expect any new NIN till at least 2016. Just my opinion. And speaking of videos, for HM: I would have loved to have seen a video for 'Copy of A.' Hell, what if Fincher had directed a video for 'Copy of A'??? That would have been too good to be true.

Fincher's one NIN video sort of sucked

Give me Romanek ... hell, even Lynch's was memorable, love it or hate it

I think Reznor's music works better for Fincher movies than Fincher movies work better for Reznor music, if that makes sense

Copy of a, Satellite, In Two and Various Methods of Escape all feel like they would have really lent themselves to videos.

Especially with the closer working relationship they have now, I could see something great coming out of that.

I'm not necessarily saying that music videos are as big as they used to be. It used to be that you had to get a music video on MTV to reach a certain level of fame, but not anymore. That said, I find that some artists have been freed creatively by not having to worry about appealing to a general audience or MTV. I've even found out about some artists because of an interesting music video they did.

Also, the director's cut of Closer is on YouTube, and I've seen videos by other artists that are rather graphic on there too. They sometimes come with a warning, but at least they're available.

Further Down the Spiral, in general, is great. It's pretty much a perfect companion to TDS. Everything from that era really had a lot of quality content; TDS, the singles, FDTS (both editions), Closure, there's just so much. As far as remixes from that era go I probably listen to Ruiner (Version), the Self Destruct mixes, Reptilian/Underneath the Skin and Closer (Precursor) more than anything.

YouTube comments are usually best avoided like the plague but I remember actually seeing someone say that TDS is like watching someone go down the spiral, whereas FDTS makes you that person, and it's a decent comparison. You stop hearing someone talking about the noise inside their head and have it put into yours. As a whole that's probably the most fully realized era of NIN across all releases (the Year Zero ARG might beat it out for that, but I'm just speaking in terms of general major releases). I really hate that the era of maxi-singles and tons of out there remixes and unique versions of things is pretty much over; granted that's led to a wealth of great fan made content that in some cases rivals the quality of official mixes, but there's also a wealth of awful fan made content that can make it rough to sift through.

Totally other random thought here: Performance 2007 had probably the best setlists of a major "standard" NIN tour (NINJA/Wave Goodbye was more of a special thing so I'd not consider it representative of a typical NIN tour). I was looking through the shows I have from RITC and I've got 15 from that tour and listen to all of them. There's just a crazy amount of variety and intensity to it. Does anyone know what the number of unique songs the band played that tour? I know it's got to be at least 40 or so, right?

Does anyone know what the number of unique songs the band played that tour? I know it's got to be at least 40 or so, right?
I agree, what bums me out about it is he never toured the States that entire year. Yeah yeah I am aware of Hawaii but I am talking about mainland!

I just realized that when I'm in a depressed or bad mood, I listen to NIN the most. I listen to NIN nearly every day but for some reason it shoots up when I feel shitty. I'm not a terribly depressive person, I'm rather jokey and very happy alot of the time but yeah... NIN can kinda do things for me if I feel sour, you know? It's a release.

That's a tough one. I'd say you could really just pick any of the Studio Coast or Metro Nightclub dates. The Manchester date is special because of We're In This Together. There's just so much, but yeah, overall I'd guess go with one from Studio Coast as my favorite. I've never heard a NIN show from Japan that wasn't fantastic, Trent really does seem to get a lot more energy from their crowds than he does anywhere else.

As I've mentioned before so many times, that's exactly how Nine Inch Nails went a little bit beyond the entertainment factors whenever it came to my listening experience, which just added to the reasons why he's my favorite musician. It's also perfect for whenever I'm thinking about my personal life and where I stand in this world as a person.

Purest Feeling really does just that for me too. :)

Anyone remember that rumor that Trent was in the concert crowd surfing scene in The Crow? Or was that a local thing? Like how I heard a girl put a cigarette out in Manson's face at a show around here back in the day. I was expecting a mention of the story in his book. Trent should write a book.

Every time "Purest Feeling" album is mentioned, i have this random thought (i guess it turned from random into regular), that it was never supposed to be so widely and readily available!
That was only possible because somebody who worked with Trent "leaked" it to some shady european "publisher" (Hawk), and now it's on every mp3 site, torrents, youtube, etc.
And seeing there are people who seem to care about that one instead of real album, it's mindblowing. It's not negativity on my part, no (as many would take it). But i'm confused.
It's crazy (historically speaking) that it's probably one and only occurrence of a CD so strongly associated with nin which Trent had no control over - contrary to "Still", by the way.
I mean, how old is this attitude "you absolutely have to hear PG + Still, you haven't heard nin if you haven't heard those"? Uh-huh, totally in the same league of importance :rolleyes:

Trent was never in The Crow, but NIN was meant to be. I guess there's enough Trent-looking people in the film for that to have got started.
If Trent wrote a book, there'd be so much fucking libel

Still is an essential!

As for Purest Feeling, I fucking love - I think the appeal isn't just its supposed rarity, but that is has two unique tracks and is genuinely good music. It feels like Trent was really, really jamming to With Sympathy for a while. It deserves a real release, like the Broken Movie. A NIN rarities boxset would be nice

Did I say it isn't? I said there's a significant number of people clinging to those "rarities" and riding this breed of high horse: "call yourself a fan of nin? return after you listen Still and PF 100 times, then we'll talk". Ugh.

Ah i misunderstood. Fuck the "real fan" dynamic generally, I'd always rather show people the rarities than tell them they have to hear them.

i never heard that, but i remember hearing that he was the front-runner at one point to play the main character in that awful sequel. i don't know where it came from or why my friends and i at 16 believed it. in my mind kurt loder actually mentioned something about it, but it was likely a dumb local thing like you said.

so stupid.

sorry for the double post, but i totally know what you mean. my copy of pf in the 90's was a memorex cassette and i treasured it in a big way. i would listen to it in spurts so as not to wear it out. it felt exclusive, like that "x files" bootleg vhs tape that was circulating at the time.

I'll admit that it's a bit of a personal interpretation of it though. :)

I really enjoy how uplifting and hypnotic 1:46-2:13 of Wish can be. While the entire song captures my yearning for truth, hope and purpose, that particular moment also captures my yearning to go back and fix everything, even though I know that I actually must accept what I can not change. I just really love how, "I want to but I can't turn back. But I want to." is also used in that moment, as that also sums up my conscience from time to time, while fitting in with that kind of sound as it really draws me in before Trent brings it on home.

I also interpreted it as wanting to not just go back to better times, but wishing to also be able to fix things instead of having to accept that some things just have to remain broken forever. I don't know why it didn't occur to me any sooner, but it certainly fits in so well as somebody that has fantasized about traveling back in time in order to fix everything without breaking anything else if possible.

And after thinking about how damaging and destructive the truth can be, even if it is a virtue most of the time, made me appreciate the music video even more. What is real, and what is true can also sometimes kill/damage you/others and steal from you and others, both metaphorically and literally. (Including the very truth of when to accept that some things aren't meant to be fixed, as even that can be sometimes very hard/impossible to swallow.) In that way, it can certainly be a reminder to be careful of what you wish for, no matter how excellent it looks on paper.

I like how it can also go with, "Don't open your eyes, you won't like what you see. The blind have been blessed with security." from Happiness In Slavery. It makes sense to me though, that it's also possible that the yearning and wishing to fix things would be mentioned in an album named Broken.

It's funny how 90's Trent has a different stage presence than he does now, but in this video he has current hair and acts like current Trent. It's like Trent knows Time Travel or something...

Yeah, it's definitely about addiction, which is probably why it was left off of With Teeth in the first place. It's rather in your face about it.
