    I suppose what I wish the most about it is that it had hit just a little harder. I can't be down on TR for the many standout drum machine bits since that was the genesis of the album, but also I can't help but imagine how much having more of a live drum presence would have lifted the album by quite a bit.
    Absolutely agree here, especially about adding some live drums which is something I've been saying for a while and would have helped give the album more edge. I find the album stays leveled throughout, never really feels like it peaks or troughs, just stays flat and I become a bit bored. The drum machine angle gets a bit stale after a while and verses/choruses/bridges begin to blend into each other. I do like In Two. Tracks sound much better live and I wish we got more of that band feeling in the studio. Release studio versions of the live performances of tracks and I will enjoy it much more.

    TNT’s Animal Kingdom comes back for a new season next month, which has previously featured The Background World and I’m Not From This World in recent episodes, not to mention the theme song (Welcome To The Jungle) being done by TRAR. They should totally step it up a notch and write a full-fledged song for the series, IMO.

    Was playing planet coaster and i think NIN should open a fun park, wouldn't you want to ride a roller-coaster called the downward spiral? Get lost in the Perfect Maze or make a decision to go up above it or down into the rather nice but unpleasant Pretty Hate Machine? Try and keep on your feet in The Slip? Avoid getting green goo on you riding on 'The Deep'? Take a terrifying walk around the house with 36 ghosts? Not being able to ride 'Broken' because it's broken.

    Sorry, too much coffee today.

    They could make part of the coaster look like it’s Broken and you’re about to die, but then just in time, it’s Fixed

    TBH Witha Teetha and Ahead of Ourselfs and Sanctified are the only ones that immeaditly come to mind that I can hum from memory.
    The one from Happiness in Slavery is pretty funky and put forward, comes to mind immediately for me

    I would love to hear a completed version of "was it worth it?" with vocals. Probably my favorite track on Deviations.

    Having finished my list of NIN covers, I realised they have done exactly 50 as of Greensleeves - if we take HTDA and TRAR covers as covers http://www.nin.wiki/Cover_Songs

    For Down In The Park it says “partially, Gary Numan on guest vocals”. Gary pretty pretty much wrote the song and Tubeway Army was only used for his first two albums before just going under his name. I think it should just say “Yes” in that column. @botley ?

    I don't know enough about early Numan to know, but pretty much wrote isn't wrote?

    It was written and produced just by Gary.

    Yeah, he also wanted to release it under his own name, but the record company insisted on keeping the "Tubeway Army" name because they had sold a few thousand copies of their first LP.

    Some editions of the Replicas album credit "Gary Numan + Tubeway Army" too. It's a Gary Numan song, basically.

    Bad Witch is not an LP, it's an EP. lol I still can't get over Trent's logic on that one.

    It is a shorter listen than Broken, which is well known as an EP.

    "EPs show up with singles in Spotify and other streaming services = they get lost easier. EPs feel less important in today’s music-isn’t-as-important-as-it-once-was world. Why make it easier to ignore?"
    Not sure what's so crazy about that.

    Broken is technically classifed by the RIAA as a "short-form album" (*walks away slowly before another argument erupts*).

    It's also longer than Slayer's Reign in Blood. What's your point? Trent called it an album, so i don't see the point in beating the dead horse almost a year later.

    Bad Witch is so much easier to find on Spotify compared to NTAE and AV that I couldn't give a crap about its length. Great idea making it an album Trent and thank you.

    Not actually crazy to me…but why not have also called both AV or NTAE LPs as well? Maybe in hindsight he would have?

    I also am now noting Spotify (not sure about Apple Music) lists Broken as an LP. Hmm. www.ninwiki.com doesn't concur. System collapse.

    I guess I wish I actually knew what the standard was for what makes an EP an EP. Maybe I never knew?

    That seems to be his reasoning. He saw what happened with the first two EPs and decided to switch it up for the final EP.

    Even better would have been to make it an EP and then release a compilation of the trilogy as a streaming only album. With that all of the material would be easy to find and the system wouldn't be broken.

    Oh well, missed chances...
