    This EP trilogy is shaping up to be my favorite project Trent’s ever committed to. Aesthetically, thematically and sonically it’s all spoken to me heavily at this particular point in time in my life and has been exactly what I’ve been wanting out of music. Burning Bright live and in studio is one of the most powerful and overwhelming things he’s ever created and manages to feel like the pinnacle of the melodic abrasion he’s been pursuing since 1989 and The Background World feels like the logical endpoint of everything he’s been battling with himself about since With Teeth.

    All of them are good. I can't decide where to put Still, so I left it out.

    This makes me really happy for you, to have such a powerful touchstone and piece of art that means so much to you when you're young.
    It seems like the older i get, the harder it is to REALLY get into a record the way i did when i was in my 20s.

    Sorry for late reaction, ha. I'm just catching up on this thread.

    Can I ask why Broken is at the bottom? I ask because Broken is usually popular and favorited among NIN fans.

    Sheesh, this is hard to do. Unlike 99% of the bands I listen to, NIN doesn't have a single album that I don't enjoy, so I mostly ranked them by the amount of time I have spent listening to them.

    1. The Fragile
    2. Add Violence
    3. The Slip
    4. The Downward Spiral
    5. With Teeth
    6. Pretty Hate Machine
    7. Not the Actual Events
    8. Broken
    9. Year Zero
    10. Ghosts
    11. Hesitation Marks

    If I did this tomorrow, my answers would likely be different. Also: I think it is REALLY cool to see how varied everyone's ranking is. The Fragile and TDS tend to be relatively high on most lists, but everything else falls in a million different directions.

    It seems kind of wrong, but if we count the whole 'trilogy' as a single entity, its right fucking up there with TDS and The Fragile.

    No I feel you. I have yet to listen to Bad Witch but if it's as good as people are saying, then combining it with the 2 EPs it makes one of the most adventurous, experimental NIN works ever.

    I *might* switch Bad Witch and NTAE, but otherwise this is my exact ​ranking.

    Hmmmm, let’s see how I feel today. Can’t include Ghosts in here- I’ve always thought of it as an experiment marketed to be a NIN album because sales. Also can’t include Bad Witch yet. Leaving out Still which has awesome original songs but personally don’t like the remakes:

    1) TDS
    2) Broken
    3) PHM
    4) TF (this album has always been too long for me, with nearly half of it being forgettable)
    5) W_T (can be interchangeable with YZ depending on mood)
    6) YZ (can be interchangeable with W_T depending on mood)
    - note: for me, major drop off here
    7) NTAE
    8) AV (has nothing to do with the music or ranking, but this album title was a huge let down)
    9) HM (has some under rated songs, and I personally like the production outside of the annoying low end frequencies that want to destroy a subwoofer- and not in a good way)
    10) TS (decent considering what the vision was for the album, but in the end it’s about the final product)

    If Trent was concerned about sales, he wouldn't have made Ghosts.

    And like it or not, it is a Nine Inch Nails album.

    As far as my own ranking goes, I imagine the new album/EP/whatever will fall in roughly the same area as the previous EPs.

    Ghosts did incredibly well from profit stand point. How did the HTDA releases do?

    Yeah, the NIN marketing helped. Let’s not kid ourselves.

    Pretty sure they did well too, especially since Welcome Oblivion had the backing of a major label.

    Also, Ghosts was the first Nine Inch Nails release after Trent split from Interscope for various reasons. With that in mind, which seems more likely? Trent doing an album of music that he wanted to, but couldn't under the pressures of a record label to produce hits, or Trent just throwing out some demo material under the Nine Inch Nails name in order to sell it? If Trent felt it was different enough from Nine Inch Nails, he wouldn't have put it out under that name (see: Tapeworm).

    Like I said, regardless of what anyone thinks of it, Ghosts is a Nine Inch Nails album, and saying it "doesn't count" is idiotic.

    So because HTDA was on a major label it automatically does well? OK then.

    I just decided to leave Ghosts off my list since it’s such a flier (a double disc of short instrumentals) compared to everything else. Nothing more and nothing less. People are also excluding Still and remix albums.

    Do you have any evidence that it was a total flop?

    And I brought up the label because they had the budget to market the album, which most likely helped with sales. I doubt it's an album that's going triple platinum anytime soon, but unless anyone has any evidence to the contrary, I imagine it did as well as it could.

    I just decided to leave Ghosts off since it’s such a flier (a double disc of short instrumentals) compared to everything else. Nothing more and nothing less.
    The argument that it's not a Nine Inch Nails album because it's all instrumentals is also idiotic. Trent has entertained both the lyrical and instrumental side of the "band" many times. Going all in on one album doesn't change that.

    Bottom line: if Trent didn't think it fit in with the Nine Inch Nails name, he wouldn't have released it under that name. People can argue that he releases his soundtrack work under his own name, but it's not as if he was auditioning for score work around the time Ghosts came out. It was meant to be what he said it is: a soundtrack for daydreams. It's an album that's designed for you to project your own meanings and feelings into rather than have Trent spell out how you're supposed to feel. As someone who thinks Trent has always been a good-not-great lyricist, the lack of lyrics on Ghosts was actually refreshing to hear, and it's never felt "wrong" to me.

    If you want to look into HTDA profits, go for it. I decided to leave Ghosts off since I’m not sure how to rank it- that’s it!

    I have to go to bed now (yes, seriously). Have a good night, and quit calling my opinions idiotic.

    Oh, didn't you already do that? It sure sounded that way when you implied that they did poorly because they didn't have the Nine Inch Nails name attached to them.

    Maybe you could have said that at the beginning instead of bringing up all this other nonsense. Just a thought.

    According to Wikipedia Welcome Obligion peaked at #30 on the US charts, which is fair to say that it didn’t do as well as Hesitation Marks.

    There’s your fucking answer.

    #30 isn't bad when you consider how much music comes out in a year and the variety of music that factors into those chart listings. Also, why did it have to do as well or better than Hesitation Marks to be considered a success? Of course a Nine Inch Nails album is going to sell more, but that doesn't prove that Welcome Oblivion was a total flop. Like I said, it was never going to be a record-breaking chart-topper. Try again.

    And this still doesn't prove that Ghosts isn't a true Nine Inch Nails album.
