    I'm glad I went last year but damn, I stayed in oak brooke and paid 95 bucks in cab fare. Hotels near down town are like 250 and up plus you have to pay to park. Chicago may just be too big for me,lol. I've been a lot of places from the east to the west and all the way to the southern boarder at South Pardre, but Chicago was just pricey and almost too big. Although I have yet to try NYC or LA. Went to LA as a kid but don't remember much.

    I like a thing about Ghosts, it's that, for me, it's the eternally giving album. No track names, only a big wall of music. You can just drop in randomly, listen to familiar pieces, discover others, again and again. Because if you don't register the number of the tracks, you're always blind, you don't know what happens next. I love it. It never ends.

    For me thť complete album that stands for the serious music (art) quality. Personally the kind of music I adore Trent for. I really hope he will only make that sort of music in the near future.

    Oh yeah. Painting a mood with music, and only with it. That's the stuff.

    So, today a switch flipped in my head and now I love Burning Bright (field on fire). On finishing the first listen to NTAE, I said out loud "What the fuck did I just listen to?". My brain couldn't comprehend the muddy guitars, the dense mix, the incomprehensible vocals, the sheer volume of it. I posted my displeasure here on the forums and wrote it off as a bad track.

    Now I get it. It makes sense.

    Previously this happened with Vessel, which I loathed for the first few listens, then suddenly day became night and I understood. I don't know why. Perhaps appropriate neural pathways had to be formed first. It's like the first time I heard a song with extreme vocals. You exclaim outrage and turn it off, simply because it's not what you're used to. But a seed has been planted, and if nurtured, becomes something more.

    I had the exact opposite reactions to both Vessel and Burning Bright! Isnít it interesting how that happens? Gimme the dirty, gritty, noisy stuff please.

    Wow, how time flies. The LITS tour started roughly 10 years ago.

    I hope NIN does another high production tour that blows my mind like that. Not gonna hold my breath though. Might be the coolest thing Iíve seen from a concert.

    And I showed this one kid The Becoming. I think it traumatized him, he was like "yeah, yeah I can definitely hear the complexity of that. It's definitely brilliant. But JESUS dude, how can you listen to that on a regular basis. I'm not sure I ever want to hear it again."
    Lololol
    I love that you mentioned this because I've always thought about age demographics whenever it came to interests in general. I can also definitely see that. It seems like the majority of Nine Inch Nails fans were born in the 1970s and 1980s. Since the 2010s have come and are about to be gone, I have noticed more and more fans born in the 1990s, but they too also seem to be born in the very early 1990s, or at least before 1995.

    Anyway, even regardless of age, I've also always noticed that Nine Inch Nails is often a major hit or miss most of the time. However, I will say that I always enjoyed it when getting new listeners into Pretty Hate Machine, Broken, The Downward Spiral, The Fragile and With Teeth became successful via birthday or Christmas presents.

    As to your first point, it's fucking INSANE and a little frightening. It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I printed out LITS artwork and hung it on my wall. It seems like I (originally) joined ets in the midst of the ARG. Honestly, this sort of thing terrifies me.
    "Time is runnniing ouuuuut" et so

    as to you second point, LITS was absofuckinglutely the coolest thing I've seen from a concert and I enjoyed it as much as 94 and 95 shows.
    I, too, want another high production NIN tour.
    And while i still love seeing NIN just, you know, PLAYING, I wish they were still doing LITS style shows.

    Hell, what they're doing now in terms of production value is a step back not only from LITS, but also from the TDS shows! Back then we had Trent ripping through that cloth thing, the low fi projections during eraser etc, the hurt projections.

    I think it's possible that they might do another mind blowing stage show in 2022-23, one that once again blows away what anyone else is doing in that department, because I will be shocked if there isn't some sort of YZ sequel in 2022

    The Frail into Burning Bright would be a pretty great live transition. Try it with the Panaroma Festival recording sometime.

    i've been on a fragile binge. again. i wish they would play "we're in this together" live. rearrange it for the current lineup is a fine idea imho. as near as i can tell it's been over 10 years. i could be wrong. such a great song & spot on for today. also played year zero for first time in awhile. prophetic & a fine recored.

    Nope, I do that stuff all the time for whatever reason and for better or worse. NIN and non-NIN related.

    In about 8 months or so we’ll be “celebrating” TDS for being 1/4 of a century old. :O

    I could definitely get behind a Halo that was just Trent whispering for approximately 90 minutes.

    You know something. This is exactly what my sister is saying as she is surrounded by people in their 20s and early 30s who probably listen to what is cool now and says that the only rock band that everyone knows are the Foo Fighters. She never liked NIN and she doesn't think they matter despite the fact that I waited more than 3 hours to get a ticket at the Fox Theater in May with a lot of other people who came as far as Alabama to South Carolina to get a ticket with some coming in late at night and waited a long time to get the tickets. I didn't get the tickets that day but I was able to get a ticket for a show a few days later through an online discount from the venue. She thinks what I did was just stupid and pointless. Yeah, this is coming from someone who had an election party nearly 2 years ago thinking Hilary was going to win.

    All joking aside I would love to hear more "Conversation with Trent Reznor's" like he did for Hesitation Marks. Or he could do a mini-radio podcast type thingy about whatever, could be interesting.

    Every generation and era has its run. Makes me think how as a kid I looked at the 70s disco scene and 60s hippie scene, and viewed the music and cultures almost as silly caricatures. Now I wonder if the current generation views my era of the depressed/self-loathing/suicidal grunge/goth/alt-rock stars in a similar silly self parody kind of way. But even if nin never again sees the relevance of the Woodstock 94 through TDS era, Trent has forged probable long-term relevance with the film scoring world.

    but like...like...they still headline festivals!

    Idk. What is relevant? I'm of the mind that they've never really been THAT "relevant" in terms of being some huge important pop act to begin with.

    even with people who are around forty, they're like "oh! Nin! Fuck you like an animal, right?!"

    Idk these kids are 22 and think Avenged Sevenfold is the greatest band of all time.

    Luckily my 22 year old cousin is the ONE of them who is into NIN (and his friends bust his balls for it haha)

    The way young people view NIN comes down to their interests. I'm 26, and it's my favorite band. I've found that people who think in terms of "relevancy" and it's importance generally aren't "into" music, they just enjoy what they hear. Most young people who are "into" music seem to hold NIN in a high regard, even if they don't like them. I'm sure the same people who poke fun at someone for liking the band think that Talking Heads are "irrelevant" and not worth listening to as well. It all comes down to interests. The young people who dismiss NIN now are the same as those that dismissed them in the '90s.

    Also @SM Rollinger that's kind of sad. There are a ton of new bands breaking all sorts of new ground, and with the internet at our disposal it's easier than ever to hear them.

    I'm 38 and the only new band I listen to is A Perfect Circle.

    Kidding but not kidding. Part of it is what we were talking about before, that most of us discover our SHIT before the age of 30.

    But the other thing is that I just haven't found a new ROCK act that floats my boat in a LONG time.

    I do bump a lot of Joey Bada$$, Ghostemane, Chance the Rapper, Odd Future, and plenty of newish drum and bass.

    I'm not really interested in new music though there's a few pop song every now and then that wins me over like Ariana Grande. Other than that, I just stick to what I like or whatever old music I hadn't heard of.

    Someone should program the Rock-afire Explosion to perform God Break Down the Door. Infact, Trent should just use them for an actual video in place of the actual band. It'd be hilarious if it was done with complete seriousness, black and white, weird video projections, everyone wearing Trent's wardrobe, it'd be great.

    It's not as if the next lines help out. "I think I knew when it crossed the line / I think I knew the whole goddamned time." The trilogy (mostly NTAE and BW) really is dark as all fuck.

    Nothing More is a very solid "new" band.

    I would recommend checking out a few originals to get used to their style before you watch their cover of We're In This Together. It's the only NIN cover I've ever approved of.
