Oh man, that would be awesome! Wasn't there a song with Josh Homme that didn't make it on the record or something? I'd love to hear that. I bet there's a stack of cool odds and ends on Trent's hard drive from the YZ era.

I feel like this belongs here more than NIN Spotting:
Husband and I are in New Orleans for the week, and last night we went to The Mortuary, a haunted house thing up on Canal that’s actually an old mortuary. When we got chased out of the last door back out into the crowd out front by dude holding a chainsaw, “The Hand That Feeds” was the first thing to hit my ears. They were playing music over the speakers in front of the house for the people waiting in line. Made me laugh. [emoji3]

I get the feeling that there is way more unreleased material from the WT sessions than the YZ sessions for a Deviations album…and not just because of the song titles that were listed but never released. It was his first album sober and he had a lot of time to work things out and experiment in a full studio. I'd love to hear that stuff!!

I just wanted to say that Burning Bright (Field On Fire) and The Background World are by far the latest Nine Inch Nails songs to have given me a sense of comfort, reassurance and peace.

In some, or many ways depending on the situations, being the strongest I have ever been in my decline is all that I could ever ask for. And the way Trent sings, "Are you sure, is this what you want?" has helped me calm down and clear my mind, especially when putting consequences into perspective. It's a common question, but the way he sung it just reached out to me in a certain way, as did the rest of the actual song itself.

And well, as always, thanks Trent. Your music is one of the things that helps me move on and keep calm, even in spite of how many times I get stuck, how chaotic my mind and heart trigger me so, or how many times I want to turn back/vanish. :)

If I had to choose a specific moment that forever cemented NIN as a band that would become my favorite ever and change my life, it would probably be that part in Right Where It Belongs where it finally goes from distant and muffled to clear and in-focus. Trent solemnly singing about isolation and the state of existence with a piano and some fuzz to sudden roaring applause. Oof. That did a real number on high school me.

Let's say this is exactly my experience, too, except one song prior, Beside You In Time, when the beat breaks the shoegaze interlude. I knew I was won over.

With Teeth was the first NIN album I listened to from start to finish, after only hearing a couple singles here and there and not quite clicking.

And then the latter portion of "All the Love in the World" happens, and just completely blows my expectations from the "fuck you like an animal" band out of the water. Ugh. That's a really solid album opener, and is still one of my favorite songs ever. That whole record will always be chock-full of nostalgia for me, and here I am now, over a decade later, still splurging about it online.

As someone has estimated, I feel that a March-release for EP 3 is very reasonable. My estimation is February, and I'm willing to gamble with people on this. I will wager $100 Canadian.

reasonable predictions:

+5 more excellent songs
+dynamic EP (to illustrate, ADD VIOLENCE is more dynamic than Not The Actual Events).... I'll be happy if we get 5 industrialized acoustic songs though
+background vocals and vocal flourishes from Atticus

My vision for EP 3 is that it starts with a propulsive banger, second song is a This Isn't The Place blues/r n b song, 3rd song is a super-focused aggressive rocker that goes through 3 evolutions, 4th song is a tribal from out of nowhere bonkers song we haven't heard from NIN before, 5th song is an acoustic number with layers of synths and an awesome synth bass line

Manson exaggerated a lot of things in that book. From a Swedish magazine interview (http://theninhotline.net/archives/articles/manager/display_article.php?id=823): "Manson distorted reality and painted a very unfair picture of me," Trent claims. "I didn't say anything for years, but it is important that I give my version [... I] was in the middle of an emotional tumult. I created a circus around me, but I'm not really that guy."

"Capital G" wasn't a song I was too interested in after the album dropped, but now it always turns into a fucking banger for me. SO GOOD. I'd love to hear more of those songs live someday. Aaand considering how much stronger some of those themes seem to ring now, I feel like it's a definite possibility for upcoming tours.

I hope not but I wouldn't be super surprised if something came up from Trent's past. I am of the firm belief that the things a person does while on hard drugs is not representative of who they are. It doesn't mean it's an excuse and it doesn't mean they shouldn't face consequences but it also doesn't automatically mean that's who they are. Certain people close to me have had those kinds of pasts and you're really not yourself when you're using.

With all that said, I don't think he has one of those kinds of skeletons. I'm just saying it wouldn't be a super shock. Unless it happened within the last 15 or so years. Then I'll be shocked.

i find it hard to believe if there was something this bad it didn’t come out in 2009 with the whole Trent getting married backlash, like every article had pages and pages of vicious comments and dragging up the past. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if something like this came out about somebody in the entourage of the Downward Spiral tour though

One of Trent’s friends during that time was a self proclaimed virgin. Kennedy from MTV toured with him. She wrote about him in her book. I think If she has anything on him, it would’ve came out then since that’s the kind of thing that sells books.

slightly related, and super old news, but in the first Resident Evil movie, the layered drum section from that same track (or possibly the Fist Fuck version) is used during the scene where Milla fights off the dogs. It's uncredited I believe.

So nin and CSI: I've heard at LEAST a dozen tracks now, at LEAST. And these are deep cuts too. I heard Slipping Away and The Great Collapse in one episode.
The weird thing is that I can't find any database online that says which songs were in which episodes.
I guess they are ALL uncredited? How does that work?
Like my friend's band The Old 97s had a song in season six of the walking dead, and it only played for like 30 seconds, but they got an IMBD credit and were paid for the use of the song.
Does Trent just kind of let CSI use his old tunes?

It's pretty damn cool: no other tv drama has more NIN than CSI.

It's very hard for me to put it into words right now, but Not The Actual Events and Add Violence are giving me quite the mind screw trip whenever I ponder about how both EPs connect and relate to previous works. I was about to post about again, as I've posted about it before, but just had to stop myself for now this time around. It really all just boils down to fantasy and speculation anyway. (With some exceptions.) As fun as it is, I really am at a loss for words, but that's also because it's quite fascinating to see how Trent created a world in his music, or dare I say, multiverses, dimensions, timelines and personas. The lore keeps going on and on.

What I will say though, is how I ended up enjoying imagining and picturing the concept of those albums audibly and visually in relation to Broken (Thanks to the movie itself as well.), The Downward Spiral and Year Zero. That's been sometimes fun for what it's worth.

Just when I thought the surprises were over, that happens. And I'm entirely grateful. It also always amazes me how there really is always a unique experience per release, which always succeeds to make all of them even all the more memorable.

I've been buying Nine Inch Nails albums as gifts to give as presents for birthdays and Christmas to friends over the past couple of years. I love this musician as much as the next person here, and I'm sure I'm not alone on this, especially on the whole buying multiple albums part, but I actually never expected to love this musician to that point. (Although, I've kind of done it with other musicians, but not as much as NIN.)

And well, not that it should surprise anybody, especially on ETS, but just about all of them liked or even loved what they heard, which was pleasantly surprising, since most of them never ever heard of NIN before meeting me. :)

I don't know why it took me so long to admit it though, but I have actually mentioned it a few times before. (Or perhaps I just forgot that I did.)

To date, the Lights In The Sky tour is still my favorite, and as a production the Tension tour felt like an extension of the LITS tour on some levels. Having the addition of Lisa and Sharlotte really helped to distinguish it though. If you like the VEVO, you might find the Austin City Limits NIN broadcast to be worth a look.

The studio version was only available on a 20 year old import CD single that was most likely out of print. To remaster it and throw it on the 2010 version of PHM was at least throwing a bone to the diehards...Twist, MJO and PF probably were never even recorded during the PHM sessions...Now if he really wanted to do a deluxe box set for PHM, then he could put out a whole disc of demos and unreleased stuff that I am sure he has in the vault (like those demos Atkins was hawking on ebay a few years back) but since when has NIN ever gotten a deluxe box set reissue for anything....So 1 extra song is about as good as its gonna get, so minds well embrace it

To remaster it and throw it on the 2010 version of PHM was at least throwing a bone to the diehards...Twist, MJO and PF probably were never even recorded during the PHM sessions...Now if he really wanted to do a deluxe box set for PHM, then he could put out a whole disc of demos and unreleased stuff that I am sure he has in the vault (like those demos Atkins was hawking on ebay a few years back) but since when has NIN ever gotten a deluxe box set reissue for anything....So 1 extra song is about as good as its gonna get, so minds well embrace it
Dude, it was on iTunes et al. It was, for some reason, one of the few NIN singles available digitally

And TDS' deluxe box was lovely

It was? No b sides at all. 3 decent demos compiled with a bunch of songs that are easily available on singles and EPs and remix albums....It was pretty half ass compared to what other bands do

I think it was a very good release on a casual level, in the sense that people who don't come to ETS got a lot of material they likely would never have come across otherwise. Say you're a guy who bought and liked TDS in the 90s but didn't really keep up with NIN. You see a Deluxe Edition reissue, pick it up to reminisce, and then there's a bunch of weird new shit on the second disc? Score. Maybe that guy even becomes a NIN fan, though I'm not really sure that anything on the second disc would be enough to convert someone if TDS itself didn't. But who knows.

On a hardcore level, sure, it wasn't much, but I get the sense that Trent didn't have a ton to do with it, unless he's said otherwise. I agree that other bands have put more effort into deluxe reissues (Smashing Pumpkins comes to mind most recently, though there are countless others), but plenty of others do things like re-release the exact same master in weird limited edition packaging with no other bonuses (thanks Tool).

He did toss in Get Down, Make Love on the remaster. That was an obscure B side
Not really an obscure b-side. Trent's referring to stuff we possibly haven't heard yet. Although, tbh "snippets" sounds like it's unfinished work, or maybe it sucked.


I don't think a song NIN played live and was easily downloadable is obscure. Unlike, say ... Slate, Twist, Purest Feeling and Maybe Just Once
Don't forget the original version of Kinda I Want To! ♥


The studio version was only available on a 20 year old import CD single that was most likely out of print.
The Sin single was widely available in both US and UK territories. Easy to find even now on ebay or wherever.


Maybe AATCHB is similar to La Mer in terms of meaning to Trent, so he finds it hard to play.
Possibly, but he's played La Mer a ton live.

The entire album was also remixed in 5.1. Sounds amazing on a good system. I admit I was a little disappointed at the time. It'd have been cool to hear an unreleased song like 'Just Do It'.

I miss Rob Sheridan’s graphics on the nin.com website. I find the new site too minimalistic.

NIN’s live shows feed my soul like no other live show. When I tell people this I preempt it by saying this is a serious statement. I mostly get met with a nonchalant or perplexed reaction. I’m surrounded by people that don’t understand the power of live music. NIN is the only band I consume as many live shows as work and vacation time allow during one tour.

If Deviations 2 is an actual event that takes place and if it is indeed The Downward Spiral (Oh please!

I am always disappointed at how the album version ends after hearing this song live. I would LOVE a studio version of the song with that outro!

I would like to admit that I actually still sometimes can not believe how much of an impact Nine Inch Nails had on me emotionally and mentally since 2002. I know it's because I'm very much entertained, while being able to relate to his work on a personal level, but it certainly has helped me in many cases when I had absolutely zero people to converse and vent with, or cases where I had serious trouble expressing certain emotions the right/safe way.

I can't put my finger on it altogether, but the way NIN has touched my heart, mind and soul and/or what have you is very unique to me. Not that this is anything new from a NIN fan, but Trent Reznor truly is a godsend in the world of music and then some.

Also same. It's hard to put into words how obsessed I was with NIN, particularly from 1994-2002. The first ten years of my life, I had not heard anything that came close to music like that. I became consumed with it. I'm pretty sure the first CD I got was the "Closer to God" single. I can remember listening to it on a Gateway 2000. That opening, ultra-manipulated drum machine sound. The bizarre photograph of the centipede with that strange green-yellow hue. The incredible, mysterious, unplaceable sounds of many of the remixes. I was hooked. I had to get a cassette dub of TDS and hide it in my room because my mom refused to let me buy the album. There aren't many albums/EPs I played as much as the TDS-era releases. I remember the two year gap between FTDS and TPD as a kid (two years is forever when you're 11 and 12). I listened to The Fragile so many times when it first came out, and have returned to it often in both bad and good times. It's the perfect album for isolation, self-imposed or otherwise. I pretty much started making music on my own on a computer because I had read the "nine inch nails is trent reznor" credit on the PHM artwork after a couple of bands I was in in middle school broke up. I don't always know how much of Trent's image is real or exaggerated, but it does sound like the music of someone who at least feels separate from others, if not alone. It feels oddly convincing even though it's very theatrical. Even after hearing some of the influences (like Coil), there still isn't anything like it I've come across. It sounds both like pop music and "underground" at the same time. My life has been pretty difficult at times but I feel grateful for getting to be a kid when NIN broke – the 90s in general had some amazing, diverse, great music and is kind of the last full decade of the old music industry.

I absolutely agree. However, I've also had The Fragile, and more recently, Ghosts I-IV in mind for the holiday season much more as of late.

The Downward Spiral and Pretty Hate Machine (It also kind of goes with the cool/cold for me.) also seem to go very well with summer too, but that's just me. Maybe it's also partly to do with the album cover (Then again, with covers one could go on and on with random visual associations/parallels.), but Broken is also a very summer release for me as well.

I've always assumed that even though parts of Ghosts have a distinctly NIN sound that hasn't really been explored on any of TR&AR's soundtrack work (the tracks with harder beats and harsh guitars), that the essential idea (freely structured instrumental music) has sort of been taken over and continued by their scores?

The scores have more than scratched my itch for giant collections of instrumental TR/AR music and Deviations added even more to the pile for me. I feel like Social Network and Gone Girl both show how their instrumental work is almost better when it has specific imagery to tie itself to. There’s a palpable tone and a texture to the Dragon Tattoo score that Ghosts doesn’t have. I’ll take more in line with what they’re doing in the EPs over 2 more hours of Ghosts any day (but I really hope some Ghosts tracks come back live; there’s no way they can’t fit one or two into the setlists).

Can an I get an id on his leather jacket of this tour. Damn, it’s sick.




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

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.

Fixed this for you.

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. :rolleyes:

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.
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.

I'd like it on both, and probably some record company is going to want to cash in with a boxed set containing this, so..
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.

You know what, vinyl frisbees are better than CD, too - they're heavier, they'll fly farther, what are you trying to prove here?


But, I totally hope it comes out on CD for the people that still like CDs!

It's not really a matter of pleasing people who "like" a certain media for their music. It's about getting the most value out of one's purchase. I personally think now that i'd rather buy soundtracks (such as Patriots Day and BTF) as pure downloads - if there was a definitive place that had them all, preferably nin.com shop. But nin.com shop is not so user-friendly unfortunately. So i didn't buy there. "Official" site doesn't even offer external links to where to buy what. I'd like one place to go and shop for music i like - but it's a risk that next release is not sold in a shop where i'm registered, or the rights expire, or some other b u l l s h i t. So i prefer CD as a "safety measure". If i get one, i get A - music, B - hard copy, C - independence from online services. I obviously don't speak for all "people that still like CDs", i just have reasons to not look down on them as a group of paying customers.

I really wish Trent would pull a Bowie move and play a Greatest Hits tour to retire them the fuck away and then do a tour with only new stuff + super deep cuts and previously unplayed shit.
I was recently reading a fan-made Outside Tour book/chronology and there was a quote from Bowie he made at one TV appearance. He said that whoever went to see him on Outside tour and then complained about the lack of old hits must've been living under a rock for five years and he was absolutely right. With proper advertising it's possible to bring a number of people who don't know the songs to a bare minimum.

I really wish Trent would... play a Greatest Hits tour
This is the norm, though. There are a bunch of songs that are played almost every night alongside a smattering of new stuff with a few lesser-played tracks thrown in for good measure.

NIN is already a relatively niche band. Attendance would be awful if they stopped playing the songs that your average concert-goer wants to hear. People expect to hear Wish, HLAH, Closer when they go to see NIN. They don't want to hear Find My Way or The Lovers. The community we have here is comprised of hardcore fans who would kill to have a setlist only made up of deep cuts. But the truth is that NIN is a money-making venture just as much as it is an artistic endeavour. He's comprising sets from what he believes is his best (and most popular) material across an almost 30-year discography. As much as I roll my eyes at the intro to Gave Up, I still get into the song and enjoy it; it's still a good song. And even if we've all heard it to death at this point, there'll be someone in the crowd who'll be hearing it for the first time that night.

watching live beside you in time for first time in quite awhile. what a great tour that was. the production was phenomenal. i must say though that i really prefer the current live band. stripped down & dirty. it looks like another year of mainly festival gigs. would much rather see an arena/theater tour. the festival thing is a smart move though. most of the production costs are covered & publicity, etc. iggy pop has made plenty of hay touring like that. makes more sense for him though since he is getting up there in age. trent is still plenty young. maybe he is waiting until he gets a whole new album out before committing to a full on headline tour.

I was driving home from my best friend's house a few nights ago and I had NTAE playing in my car. I realized that "She's Gone Away" has such a super warm analog sound to it. The production has such a thick, meaty quality that makes it feel like more like a nice old vinyl than a CD or digital file. Such a great song. One of my new favorites.

First time I saw them live was on the fragility tour. They played this song and it was entirely epic. The upside down body diving into the water on the 3 screens as the songs hit the climax...Masterful.

I’ve never told anyone this, but I send Trent a Christmas card each year... I don’t have his exact address, so I just write an address that’s close to where I think he lives in the hopes that the person who receives the card will know where Trent lives and deliver it to him.

Trent, I hope you check out the link I wrote down in the card. I spent a lot of time writing that song for you.... and yes I really do enjoy eating a Snickers bar when I listen to Eraser.

I think it mostly depends on what Trent considers a "deep cut" nowadays. Would you take for a deep cut, say, The Wretched, Only or Piggy? Or do you want something unplayed like Perfect Drug or Ten Miles High or Zoo Station? They could bust out Discipline for all we know. It'll be a worthy show anyhow, i'll guess...

As much as I loved this in the set during that tour I think the current lineup and show would be great for bringing this version back. It would sound really great with She’s Gone Away, Reptile, The Great Destroyer, Burning Bright, etc. Plus I think it would work better than the album version with the stripped down stage setup.

Also, I have never liked the Only Time break-down they added. I would much rather they just play that song.

While I’m at it... I also wish they would play the album version of March of the Pigs and drop the “all lined up” section. It was cool for a while, but now I think the song would have more impact in the set to end at the normal spot and just lead into something like Wish.

Such a beautiful song. It's one of those songs that I think becomes a gem for a new nin listener when they come across it and study it. I was revisiting Radiohead's Hail to the Thief last night and I couldn't get over how great A Wolf at the Door is, which is the last song on that album. It reminded me of the kind of feeling I get when i listen to The Great Below in the sense of mastery and beauty - not so much the context or meaning of what the song could mean. It made me think that it was moments like that, which make listening to music so magical.

The comparison to Closer is ludicrous. Lyrics are shockingly bad. I have no idea what the song is even about, and that's after looking up the lyrics (some arrogant loser trying to seduce?). The chorus melody seems ripped from a '90s boy band. The only good thing I can say about it is that it has a beat, but that's it. Without the Very Expensive video, it would be nothing.

It's funny how some of "the hits" have taken on a sense of relevancy (and potency) again in light of current events.

I was feeling every beat and every word as if it was the first time I had heard it. A very bizarre but great experience.

Still is so amazing. I never burn out on it, never play it too frequently and every time I revisit it I come away with a stronger appreciation for what they did on it. Usually "band does a bonus disc for something" amounts to a couple of interesting obscurities and nothing more, and then Trent goes and releases what's basically another album with versions of old songs so different that they feel totally new, and it's relegated to a special edition of a CD version of a DVD. It's amazing. I'm really looking forward to when we get the vinyl version of it in 2058.

Also, Trent's vocal delivery on And All That Could Have Been is one of his best studio performances ever. Those lyrics could feel cheesy or melodramatic so easily but he nails it and makes it feel so genuine and raw. The live versions of Something I Can Never Have and The Becoming on it are also all-time bests. For an album that's half instrumental it's got potentially the best vocals the man's ever delivered.

Almost managed to lose my brand new Deviations vinyl at ASDA today. My mind must have been elsewhere when I put it down while packing my groceries at the self-checkout lane and I just fucking went home without it. Luckily the store is just about a ten minute walk from my place (less than three if you're running for all you are worth), and they had it safe and sound at costumer service. Since it still had the price tag on I had to endure some looks and obvious wisdom about £62 being a lot of money to lose like this, but by then I was smiling to myself thinking of the Sandbag/Firebrand threads. They have no idea.

And Slash is British but sounds nothing like it. Accents can be weird...but it does change if you live in a place for a long enough time

I said this before and I'll say it again:

I'm disappointed that he didn't bring up the harsh distorted ending of the song, where those power chords come in out of nowhere and proceed to linger on for a minute and a half.

Still is so amazing. I never burn out on it, never play it too frequently and every time I revisit it I come away with a stronger appreciation for what they did on it. Usually "band does a bonus disc for something" amounts to a couple of interesting obscurities and nothing more, and then Trent goes and releases what's basically another album with versions of old songs so different that they feel totally new, and it's relegated to a special edition of a CD version of a DVD. It's amazing. I'm really looking forward to when we get the vinyl version of it in 2058.

Also, Trent's vocal delivery on And All That Could Have Been is one of his best studio performances ever. Those lyrics could feel cheesy or melodramatic so easily but he nails it and makes it feel so genuine and raw. The live versions of Something I Can Never Have and The Becoming on it are also all-time bests. For an album that's half instrumental it's got potentially the best vocals the man's ever delivered.

Leaving Hope is definitely one of the best closing songs as well. I'll never forget how that song first made me feel

I always thought Marilyn Manson missed the mark by not doing a Christmas album. It would be fucking hilarious classic christmas carols fucked with by the stylings of Manson. I see NIN doing a White Christmas instrumental in a brooding uneasy fashion.

Trent & Atticus already did their Christmas album. It's called The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo OST. :p

I'd really like to see NIN going into jazz territory and experimenting with jazz/industrial mix, maybe something like Bowie's Blackstar but harsher and noisier.

LINE and The Line are both on WT, which also has WT

Although, I do love one of the newer ones as it kinda can be read like the song, HEINOK (Hey, no-k)

Nice. Would it be possible to add source and venue information for the individual tracks, either in the description or as a comment?

For compilations like this, I tend to add "(Live from/in/at xxxx)" for my own sorting purposes.

Pinion / The New Flesh and Somewhat Damaged were recorded in London, at the Brixton Academy in December 01, 1999 (this is the only soundboard recording of Somewhat Damaged from this tour I think). The other tracks were recorded in Wiesen, Austria, at the Forestglade Festival in July 08, 2000.
I edited de audio to make it flow like it was only one show. I also edited the encore gap between Starfuckers and Hurt and remastered the whole thing.

We'd have trouble with Fragile onwards, only PHM, Broken and TDS have had every single track played live (With Teeth almost counts)

And actually, couldn't do Purest Feeling either, as there's no recording of the title track, if it was ever played

Having seen a ton of Beck live shows over the years, its amazing how different Justin's stage mannerisms were in NIN compared to Beck...With NIN, JMJ would stand like a statue and barely get into it. With Beck, he is running around the stage, goofing off and dancing on stage with Beck during the more upbeat songs, jumping all over the place and having the time of his life...Maybe he figured he had to be more serious with NIN

I very much enjoy the live ending of The Mark Has Been Made. It feels more cathartic (as it's functioning as its own song and not a segue on an album like The Fragile), and almost more tribal, with TR's vocals soaring over. Hmmph.
