    I am also a fan of it. I can only imagine that if it was touched up a little more it could have been awesome.

    Try getting over it with these. I question your credentials if you can't get into these:



    The bassline at 2:03 above is filthy!

    There's some decent house music, @bobbie solo , although I definitely prefer the dubstep version of the La Roux track.
    A lot of my trouble with house music is like a silly rivalry thing: there were the candy ravers with their glow sticks, and then there was us- the people in the dark tent who were there for the nasty, scary stuff, and hip hop sets. And we hated each other.
    It was like, idk, a sports rivalry type of thing.
    It's basically remnants of dumb shit from my teenage years, hence me trying to get over it.

    It's officially spring. Where's the Bird Box ultra deluxe vinyl-only box set?

    Also, it's exactly six months until the 20th anniversary of The Fragile. If enough people start badgering TR on social media now, that's plenty of time for him to get the long-rumoured Fragile Deluxe package in the official store by September 21..

    All I know is that I'm never going "badger" him for anything on social media... like, just... no.

    I actually deem this not controversial.

    I guess ending up on John Crawford's shitlist wasn't enough for you?

    I would implore anyone and everyone to not badger TR on social media about anything. No reason in particular, other than it's a rude thing to do and will likely cause him to bring down hellfire on you.

    Not controversial but I just saw that Aaron North turns 40 today. Just wanted to say I never liked Aaron North and it never felt like NIN with the guy on board. His pentatonic scale soloes on Wish are the worst moments in NIN's live shows I've ever heard. Including drunk/wasted Trent during Fragility shows.

    Not sure how controversial this is, but each EP was worse than its predecessor.

    I believe each EP is less comfortable and less expected than its predecessor.

    His solo on "The Big Come Down" from Beside You In Time is kick-ass though.

    I kind of feel the same way. I had really high hopes after NTAE, but I felt like it was diminishing returns with the next two. There are a couple of tracks on each of them that I genuinely like and I appreciate the creative risk-taking that was done on Bad Witch, but it didn't end up growing on me much.

    "play the goddamn part" and "i'm not from this world" are my favorite songs on Bad Witch, and two of my favorite songs from the entire trilogy.

    i feel like NTAE was amazing, AV was even better, and Bad Witch was fucking incredible.

    While I missed Robin, Aaron was perfect for the era he was in. He brought vitality to the live show. It felt fresh and exciting.
    I very much hope he's been able to work through his mental issues.

    Jeordie White, on the other hand, looked bored most of the time. Wasn't a huge fan. The rape allegations that've arisen since then do not help my opinion of the man.

    Aaron brought hardcore punk and anarchist Stooges energy to the table. His crazy Ron Asheton-inspired leads with the wah-wah pedal going off were always amazing, and visually he made the band look like it was going to fall apart at any moment in an exciting way. Terrific complement to the slickness of 'preparing to destroy you' With Teeth-era NIN.

    I think Jason Newsted could rock NIN bass and be another dynamic presence for a live show.

    I think Robin and him could work well together.

    I didn't get any of the last three EP's/LP's.

    I did however get a 33 of Slam Bambaloo.

    I am looking forward to any remasters of his demo's, side projects (no NOT TAPEWORM FUCK, TOOL.....no) and other bands.

    I am not fond of Atticus Ross.

    I am fond of NIN|JA

    I was not entertained by NIN/QOTSA. I'm just glad the coin flip turned out Trent first. But "God is the Sun" is funny. Too bad I ditched after NIN finished.

    I heard a rare song by Trent that night, something unreleased or something that may or may not be called filler or segway in the industry.

    Although I enjoy the ups and downs of his music, I just DON'T watch his interview videos unless it is something to do with the "Wild Child" Channel.

    I would be buying an new release if Trent got together with Grohl again, even Corey from Slipknot! \m/ v_v \m/

    Trent wanted to be someone else, Henry Rollins is that person.

    Holy shit man. I think you may have topped this thread. You're like the anti-NIN fan.

    Still prefer Robin's version, lol. But yeah, his version is not bad.

    Yeah, both Arron and Jeordie made that era very unlikeable to me. Their backing vocals were awful too. For those on the verge of facepalming me just because I said I don't like a complete stranger, keep in mind I also hope Aaron has found some stability and I wish him well. There are many Icarus Line songs I like, I just didn't like him in NIN. As for Jeordie, I don't care about what rock stars do backstage and they all do a bunch of disgusting stuff we will never find out about so yeah... I truly hope Aaron is doing well

    Agree to disagree. To me the whole act looked forced and kinda boring after the second or third show. Didn't like his tone, his style, nothing, lol.

    Hope Aaron fans can handle this, I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings with my words. With Teeth era was simply not my thing haha.

    Grohl was on an EP of the trilogy. You're creating your own problems

    This is what happens when you become too wrapped up in your own dismissiveness.

    Regarding the recent topics above:

    Aaron played Only and TBCD WAY better than Robin ever has IMHO. Really don’t think Robin can play those well at allnactually.

    The Trilogy: NTAE and AV were OK-ish, had some decent moments. Bad Witch is definitely my least favorite thing that Trent has ever put out under the NIN moniker.

    I fucking LOVED the sheer insanity and, like, DAnGER, Aaron North brought to the WT era: specifically on BYIT ( the video.)
    It was great. It was a "there and then" sort of thing.
    But I found his energy to be utterly stunning. He brought back a TINY bit of That sense of DANGER from the 94-95 shows, and it was fucking AWESOME.

    That being said, I was utterly THRILLED to see Robin at LITS. He was, HEY, the guitar player from the first few NIN shows I saw in the early nineties!
    Now, I can't imagine The Nine Inch Nails without him, and don't really want to.

    As for Georgie White, he sucks. I said this a few years back, and wound up apologizing.
    But, now that the climate has changed, perhaps I can speak my mind.
    He's just NOT A GOOD BASS PLAYER, live, at least, audibly fucking up from time to time, and he didn't bring much to the table in terms of stage presence, either.
    NOW. I guess he wrote some of Thirteenth Step, and some pivotal MM records. I'm not talking about that, though, although I don't remember any stunning basslines on Thirteenth Step. I'm talking about JW as part of NIN 's live act. I didn't like it then, and I don't like it now.
    If I sound JEALOUS, it's because I am: you know who could have like, NOT fucked up those basslines live? ME!
    Alas, they never called. Idk why.

    But, yeah, JW is like, my least favorite NIN live member.

    I didn’t like JW either. In fact the only thing I remember about him is the meathead animation of him receiving perpetual blow jobs and looking blank.

    Robin has gotten way better at playing both of those tracks but I totally agree, Aaron's fuzzy messiness perfectly complimented those tracks and he absolutely killed them. The opposite of this, in my opinion, was Sin - Robin always owns that song while Aaron's version was usually underwhelming.

    I loved Aaron North in NIN and am happy he seems to be in a better, more stable place now. He tends to get written off by a lot of modern NIN fans but the energy he brought to the shows was exhilarating and he was a terrific guitar player, way better than he typically gets credit for. Robin is for all intents and purposes the "official" guitarist and I wouldn't change that but Aaron's time in the band was definitely something special.

    To echo previous sentiments, if anyone brought down the 2005-2007 lineups, it was Jeordie. Horrible stage presence, always seemed to have a "I'm too good for this" attitude (I seem to remember people saying he visibly yawned during SICNH and that kind of crap, anyone remember that?), and never really seemed into it. And that's not even getting into all the unsavory things we know now.

    This was one of those things where Meathead was almost too accurate.
