    Greg would do that in a second since he loves NIN. I am sure Chino would be down as well

    Lately I can’t get enough of the Still version of The Becoming. Pure, raw anguish that oozes from my speakers. The Still version increased my liking of the song tenfold.

    The director of the agency I work for stopped by today along with a couple women from HR. The director noticed the NIN shirt I was wearing and commented on it. One of the women from HR said she wasn't familiar with the band. The director then asked me what NIN's most popular song was. I declined to answer the question. I figured it was probably best not to tell anyone from HR about NIN's most popular song.

    For some reason I'd love a Still-version of Burning Bright. Even though it so layered, a version with a piano/guitar/bass/keyboard in a small room could be beautiful.

    Since you were afraid to tell her about Closer, you should have mentioned the much safer Even Closer (f. Justin Timberlake & Maynard James Keenan)

    Johnny Cash’s “hurt” is a safe bet

    Ok, I just saw this posted on Instagram by the NIN live archive account. Does anybody know what that lavender shirt on the right is? I haven’t seen that before and was wondering what it looked like unfolded. https://www.instagram.com/p/BmT0NP3D...d=7ll1r1zjmy3k

    I'm taking a wild guess here but that looks a WHOLE LOT like the cover of the Loveless album by My Bloody Valentine.

    Oh I didn’t realize that table had other bands merch on it too. I got excited for a second and thought there was new NIN stuff!

    I haven't had a NIN song grow on me so much quite like "God Break Down the Door" has.

    I really don't like how there's no live drums on Only anymore in live performances. I loved that version from the 2013 shows where it was the same intro as the album version but with Ilan playing it.

    I found the Perfect Drug single at my local record shop today! I didn't know the Australian version included the original mix along with the other remixes. It was an awesome surprise to stumble across it!

    Trent is very smart doing the shows in Asia. Once they love you over there, it never goes away.

    It dawned on me today that it's actually been a couple of years since I listened to "Hurt". I guess between listening to TDS a thousand times, then the Cash cover, then just generally hearing references to it in pop culture for years I needed a bit of a break from it.

    Re-listening to songs that are emotionally powerfully after not hearing them for a while sort of brings the magic back of hearing them for the first time. What a beautiful, haunting, song: really kind of wrenches your soul.

    Listening to "And All That Could Have Been" today, I think I know why it may have been left off of The Fragile. Structurally, it's fairly similar to "The Day The World Went Away". You have a quiet beginning that heads into a wall of fuzzed-out guitar and plodding drums, followed by another quiet section (the former features loud strumming guitar in this section, which is where it breaks away from the structure), then finishing with an even bigger wall of fuzzed-out guitar and plodding drums. As an experiment, try singing the final lyrics to AATCHB in your head in time to the end of TDTWWA and you might see what I mean. Anyway, it would seem that there was only space for one song like that on the album, and AATCHB lost out in the end.

    i don't know if i agree

    there's no drums in the studio version of TDTWWA
    the verses of AATCHB are in 13/8
    emotionally, TDTWWA is triumphant and AATCHB is filled with despair

    i think it's simply more likely that the song wasn't composed (or at least not completed) until after the fragile's release. i feel like if it had been around during the sessions for the fragile, we would have gotten some kind of instrumental version of Deviations. it's such a unique piece of music in the NIN canon and i'm actually glad it wasn't on The Fragile because it fits so perfectly on Still.

    agree with you 100%. AATCHB is one of my all time favs. If the notes are similar to TDTWWA (another all time favorite) it may be intentional. Like a reprise for side 2, but probably not. It is a very unique song for sure. We have an odd NIN guitar sound in the beginning, the beat is made of weird sounds, we have what sounds like acoustic guitar (or a parker fly) in the middle (my favorite part), the huge final chorus. Its perfect.

    The song that reminds me of it, almost to the point of a rip off, is grand canyon by MJK.

    IMO, MJK wishes he was TR...and is farrrrr from it. Give me the worst NIN song over the best Pucifer song any day.

    Definitely the most underrated cover in the NIN catalog.

    And All That Could Have Been > The Day The World Went Away

    And All That Could Have Been should have closed The Fragile in my book.

    I like Ripe (With Decay), but after the two disc opus that is The Fragile, I feel it's bit of a blah ending. And All That Could Have Been is quite powerful and moving and shows in the end that he is still fragile and broken.

    It's possible it wasn't written during The Fragile sessions, due to it being included on a release that happened a full 3 years later.

    Unless it's a confirmed outtake from The Fragile

    I’m pretty sure in an interview Trent mentioned it not being part of The Fragile sessions.

    "Adrift and At Peace" would be, TR said it's the so-called conclusion to (and probably originally was recorded as a variation on) "La Mer", though that's it as far as official confirmation goes. The other original tracks were all started and finished in 2001 as far as we know.
