    Controversial Nine Inch Nails opinions

    Since I've seen similar threads in other places on the forum, but I can't find one specifically for NIN, I thought I'd start one.

    And, to start off, I like "The Slip" and "Everything".

    Heres a controversial opinion: I think this thread should stay. It serves a purpose I think.

    I agree.

    -I like The Slip. A lot.
    -I like many songs on PHM, but I do find young TR indefensibly whiny on it.
    -It pisses me off that whenever Trent sings a song straight out-- no talk-singing, no screaming-- it seems like he always tries to bury it under the production. RWIB has that annoying filter thing going on, ITT has all that crashing and banging distracting from the singing, LITS is recorded at a stupidly low volume compared to the rest of the album, etc.

    Of course, finally with Everything he's put his voice front and center, only I'm not crazy about the song.....

    Well, that wouldn't really be a controversial NIN opinion since Trent just used that line as a tribute to Pere Ubu:



    But you are right, "Getting Smaller" is a cool track that deserves some more respect, it's like a NIN's cover of a Pixies song, it was WT's "Everything" (both have been bashed by many fans and this last one sounds like a The Cure's/New Order's cover).

    Shit, i was just joking. Actually getting smaller is one of my least favorite nin songs. And not cause of the flip flop line. It just doesnt do anything for me....except for after the second chorus when that noise slowly fades in....like a foreshadow of BYIT.

    But if i have to be serious about this question, the song that speaks to me the most is the line begins to blur. Every word. The uncertainty and paranoia...its fucking haunting listening to it now, knowing where i was in my life when i heard it. And that crushing drum and bass...just perfect. Fav nin song.

    Also, and all that could have been speaks to me, on a whole other level.

    Fuck wrong thread. My bad

    Liking The Slip is controversial? It's hardly a bad album

    Controversial opinion: I really don't care if we never hear Tapeworm

    I am ambivalent at best towards MJK's vocals, neither of the songs heard so far have been "wow" for me and the only element of the whole band I'd really want to hear is Atticus' contributions. Which I'm sure he's used since in things like Ghosts

    You sir, were actually being honest.
    I would probably sacrifice a puppy for a chance at hearing it.
    (that was said to be controversial, in no way do I want to harm any puppies)

    Can I double down on that and say I hope we never do, because everything about it sounds shitty? Nothing about it ever sounded exciting. "NIN but with less talented people!" Yay?

    time to spark some controversy:

    my favorite track from Pretty Hate Machine is Kinda I Want To
    my favorite TDS-era track is The Perfect Drug
    my favorite tracks on WT are The Collector, Getting Smaller (FLIP FLOP FLIP FLOP FLIP), Sunspots and BYIT
    my favorite track on The Slip is The Four of Us Are Dying
    I love Everything

    you can kill me now

    strongly agree with all of this except i don't like sunspots at all.

    kinda i want to is ONE of my favs off PHM, and the perfect drug is ONE of my favs from TDS era.

    i was listening to the slip yesterday and i had forgotten how much i love the triptych of corona radiata/the four of us are dying/demon seed. probably one of my favorite ending-sections of any NIN release.

    Agreed, and that's kind of how I feel about With Teeth. That album is rather scattered and myopic but TLBTB / BYIT / RWIB trifecta really make a strong close. Seems like ALL of NIN's post-Fragile era albums have stronger finishes than builds, now that I think about it... the conclusion to YZ is rather poignant and pointed compared to that album's earlier meandering.

    Agree with this entirely. It seems to be one of TR's strengths.

    technically, yes, but it's my least-favorite song on the slip. (yes, i like 999,999 more than lights in the sky)

    I think With Teeth is probably my favorite album. Though at times Year Zero might hold the spot depending on my mood. It's not the greatest album, no. But it was the first new NIN album release I got to experience, so I think that's why I hold it so dearly to me.

    And I love Purest Feeling.
