    The one with lines at the top is the DualDisc version. All other releases omit this - so they're both official.

    There is this also this version of the artwork which has a more green tinge to the blue cover. No idea where this one came from.

    The green tint is either the Japan or Australia import, i believe. I have both of those and i don't remember off the top of my head which one is more on the green side, i'd have to get my physical collection out and take a look.

    The only two edition variations were the standard and dualdisc covers, but what changed was the lines. As far as having two copies that are slightly different, it'll just be because they were printed from different machines. I've seen two of the exact same album on a shelf in a store that were slightly different colors, and they were both ordered at the same time, with no differences between editions. My point is that there is not an intentional color difference between these album covers.

    I don't know why The Slip's rehearsal's have a far better vocal performances than the studio. It is a little frustrating to me. Head Down in particular.

    Likely because performing in a live setting with loud amps and drums would make TR more inclined to deliver an aggressive performance.

    Reference to the original poster: Why are there thin lines running down from the top towards the logo in that version of the artwork ?

    It's the DualDisc version mentioned previously in this thread. This included a 5.1 mix of the album along with The Hand That Feeds music video and some other tidbits.

    There's sometimes nothing like Something I Can Never Have and That's What I Get to help heal me from the wounds, sores and burns from being rejected by a crush. I know it's absolutely nothing compared to the destruction of an actual long-term relationship, especially a divorce, but it still helps despite that fact that I've always been single. I might as well also include rejected marriage proposals to that list.

    Thank you very much for that yet again Trent Reznor, as it helps me prevent me from making even more regrettable decisions in the future concerning such matters, and still helps me move on.

    It just happened not so long ago, nor was that the first time since I became a fan, but it's definitely still helping me cope and deal with that exact type of rejection.

    "Something I Can Never Have" was a go-to song for me during high school when I was in love with a friend that I could never be in a relationship with. It was a huge help and still remains a favorite for its emotional resonance.

    I just came across this when I was looking up Burn.

    @Helpmeiaminhell - I also wondered about what your reaction to this might've been.



    With that being said, Burn is still easily one of my most favorite songs live, right up there with Mr Self Destruct and Happiness In Slavery. I certainly hope to see it again.

    Speaking of which, I still also hope to see Happiness In Slavery, The Only Time, Kinda I Want To and Ringfinger. Not all of them at once to be realistic, but even just 1 or 2 of any of those songs would make my day at a NIN show.

    I also forgot to mention that I just loved the way he ended The Becoming here. It's just the way he sings "Goddamn this noise. God. Damn. This noise. Inside. My. Fucking. My fucking head.", kind of made me wish it that went on just a little bit longer.

    Head Like A Hole and Capital G at least to me, are definitely those Nine Inch Nails songs that became more true and real as time passes by. (But for different reasons from songs like Hurt, The Great Below, Every Day Is Exactly The Same and Copy Of A, which seem relatable to the daily grind of life and people coming and going.) I was also still just a student when Year Zero came out, but once I was working and job-searching and just hit me more and more as you can be sometimes damned if you do and damned if you don't when it comes to money.

    Seeing Trent Reznor also get tangled with wires on the music video to Head Like A Hole also meant more to me now than it ever did before, because actually experiencing the control of "God Money" and how it could tie you up and flip your life upside down is all too real sometimes, while also "dragging you down and using you up". And even then, you're still assimilated into the "machine", since God Money is still your "God" at the end of the day, no matter who you are and how rich you are.

    And he signs his name with a Capital G.

    But for real, it's no wonder why both of those songs are also among my go-to songs on Labor Day.

    There's something unbelievably sexy about the way that song sounds. The lyrics could just be him reading from the telephone book, it wouldn't even matter. The vibe of it is a 10/10.

    it's weird to me to think about how much the 21st of september means to me. every one of these events drastically changed my life.

    1999 - the fragile
    2004 - suicide attempt
    2014 - wedding

    looking forward to celebrating all of these things (the failure of the second one, obviously) next weekend.

    Listening to PHM while doing housework, the whole of this portion: “how can you turn me into this, when you just taught me how to kiss you? I told you I’d never say goodbye. Now I’m slipping on the tears you’ve made me cry.” always seems to get a lot of flack because of the lame/cheesy lyrics. I think it’s totally OK when you take into consideration the acknowledgment of na´vety not long later on in the song:

    “Why’s it come as a surprise to think that I was so na´ve?”

    Actually makes it genuinely heart breaking.

    It's mainly "Now I'm slipping on the tears you've made me cry" that comes across as cheesy to me. The imagery it conjures up makes me chuckle every time. (Just imagine our boy Trent slipping on puddles of tears like banana peels and you'll see what I mean.) It's why I laugh anytime someone complains about Trent's lyrics in more recent songs. He's written cheesy lyrics since the beginning. I've said it before, but with a few exceptions, I don't think Trent has ever been a great lyricist. It's always been more about the ideas and emotions behind his songs than any sort of lyrical poetry, which, combined with the music, is what makes his lyrics effective.

    the deeper it comes from, the better it is, e.g. TDTWWA

    When I was 17 and broken-hearted in 1995, this song and the whole album felt like a masterpiece.

    Our assessment of the quality of a work of art probably says more about who we are than about the quality of the art itself. In 2019 does that song make me feel much? No, not so much anymore. But looking around and seeing the world and hearing someone say, "there is no future point in time, we will not get away" speaks to me a whole lot more. Hearing "This isn't the place" and thinking about the loss of a hero or loved one really hits home for me now.

    I don't think Pretty Hate Machine is any less good than I thought it was, and I don't think I was wrong about it. I think it is perfect for what it was in the time that it was.

    A collection of abandoned and unreleased videos, leftover tracks, and whatever else called "The Failed & Forgotten".

    I remember being curled up next to my cd/ tape player in 1991 listening to my sister's boyfriend's copied tape of PHM. It was unlike anything I had heard. I listened to that damn tape so much my sister gave up trying to get it back.

    I remember getting Broken on cd about a year later. It was a full departure, but Happiness In Slavery was a masterpiece to me. That song, Physical and Suck were my favorites.
    What remains my favorite album is TDS. I've always felt that the level of sophistication, the layering, everything about that album just flooded into my teenage veins like something else.
    Looking back, I probably listen to more songs from the Fragile than I do TDS. I don't always listen to full albums (heresy, I know). I adore With Teeth and Year Zero as strong albums with songs that resonate with life as I've gotten older. I think the Slip had some good songs, but maybe Add Violence and NTAE outdid Hesitation Marks (sorry, no love for Bad Witch here).

    So I throw out the notion, my sample n=1 that the first NIN album you listen will always be your favorite. TDS will always be my favorite; I think conceptually and musically, it will always be my favorite, but there are days/weeks where I deep dive into The Fragile, With Teeth, and Year Zero.

    I don't know if it's because of when the album came out and when I first gave it such heavy rotation, but damnit if Hesitation Marks isn't just a perfect "fall weather" album. I'm one pair of tits away from being the epitome of a "basic white girl" when autumn rolls around, and this disc feels as fall-y to me as cooler air, changing leaves, and all the other good shit that comes with summer finally fucking off.
