    My original ranking as of Dec 9, 2011:

    8. Ghosts I-IV
    And now, a year and a half and a new Album later, let's see how my opinion has changed:
    The way I scored it this time was I went over and looked at the tracklisting of each album and added up how many songs I liked very album and divided it by the number of songs on the album. Here is what I came up with... For albums that had identical percentage, I ranked it based on the songs I liked on the album compared to the songs I liked on the other with the same score.

    1. The Fragile - 20/23 = 86.9%
    2. The Downward Spiral - 12/14 = 85.7%
    3. Pretty Hate Machine - 8/10 = 80%
    4. The Slip - 5/10 = 50%
    5. Broken - 4/8 = 50%
    6. Hesitation Marks 7/14 = 50%
    7. Year Zero - 7/16 = 43%
    8. [With_Teeth] - 5/13 = 38.4%
    9. Ghosts I-IV - 7/36 = 19.4%

    A tier: Tightly competing, but far and away better than the B-Tier albums
    1.The Downward Spiral
    2.Broken
    2a. (TGWTDT)
    3.Ghosts/The Fragile (These are competing right now, I often apply something similar to ManBurnings grading system above, actually... but Ghosts has a significant handicap here by virtue of having more tracks.)


    B-Tier, Very tight, :
    1.Pretty Hate Machine
    2.Hesitation Marks/Year Zero (Another competition spot. Year Zero's status as a multimedia ARG project gives it an edge)
    3. Quake
    4. HTDA
    5. With Teeth

    C Tier:
    1. Welcome Oblivion
    2. an Omen
    3. Social Network

    D Tier:
    The Slip

    Honestly I don't know how the lack of lyrics automatically makes it not music... that seems really stupid to me. Vox are but one instrument, not the lynchpin of the whole operation.
    From two years ago... lots of movers! Notably my opinion of Year Zero has fallen, as has the Fragile maybe in part because Ghosts and Broken picked up steam.

    Also Notable: HTDA growing on me quite a bit.

    9. Ghosts
    10. Year Zero

    The top 5 will mix between themselves at random.

    I'm curious how HM can honestly be in anyone's list this early. If you heard every album for the first time in the last few days then yes.
    It's new music after a long hiatus. It's fresh, it's exciting, it's probably been on constant rotation.
    It's also 2 days old

    I agree, too early for HM, but if things stay the way they are now, it will be #3. Some of the WT songs are my favorite nails songs of all time (the ending trinity). And some of the Ghosts songs are some of my favorite as well (wish he made a few of them with vocals and held them for a different album).

    Clearly your placement of Strobe Light is incorrect.

    I - The Fragile
    II - The Downward Spiral
    III - Hesitation Marks
    IV - Broken
    V - Still
    VI - Year Zero
    VII - With Teeth
    VIII - Pretty Hate Machine
    ___________

    IX - Ghosts I-IV
    X - The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
    XI - Social Network

    The instrumental work deserves a separate category, it's hard to compare it to lyrical music.

    I've been contemplating this since it has unanimously been determined that HM is in fact that good (i agree). however, i cant put it above the fragile due to it's nice aged effect aka nice memories i have of it built into facets of me. TDS isnt over rated by any stretch but def requires a certain mood level to listen to. WT was def not well received by me at first in spite thinking the art was absolutely amazing, but now is def a really nicely rounded album and has some personal favs. YZ was a blast to be a part of during the ARG on here and feel like it did what it was supposed to. The Slip was a nice treat and is def underrated. Broken is the sound most relate to NIN i feel who dont listen to regularly. PHM is a classic and i dont think sounds very dated when u look at it like YZ it has a unique vibe. Ghosts i feel was just jam sessions and TR finally giving us what we asked for in unreleased material and had some solid gems on it. HM def feels complete although i'd like more instrumental "filler" as it were.

    I've excluded all the EP, Live and Remix releases from my strictly Album (LP) only list (which is the reason why you don't find the 'Broken' EP there).

    3. Hesitation Marks

    Not going to rank Hesitation Marks until I've had a few months with it, but my initial impression is that it could wind up supplanting Year Zero as my #3 favorite, or crack my top 4. It's really, really fucking good, but...need time before I can properly place it.

    1. The Downward Spiral-masterpiece from start to finish.
    2. The Fragile-just short of masterpiece, some filler and white noise, but 90+% is brilliant.
    3. Pretty Hate Machine-some of it has not held up (kinda I want to), but most of it is stellar and sounds fresh still, didn't fall victim to the 80's or Nirvana.
    4. Year Zero-surprisingly diverse, goes heavy to mellow, last album to really have the edge of NIN, not a personal album, but still angry, and NIN is at its best when TR is angry.
    5. Broken-would be higher if there was more of it. Only Tom Morello and Dimebag Darrell played guitar angrier than what TR did here.
    6. With Teeth-lots of good stuff here, but not a cohesive album, the first one on this list that I skip around and don't play through. seems like a greatest hits record comprised of all new material
    7. Hesitation Marks-doesn't do much for me, 4-5 songs are enjoyable to me, hopefully over time it will grow on me.-
    8.The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo-only 2 songs that have vocals and none are TR, but its still better than the rest
    9. Still-more The Becoming
    10. The Slip-IMHO-the low point of NIN, I don't like any of it
    11. Ghosts-I barely count this as NIN, but its on the list because so far, its the only way Ive been able to get TR's autograph
    12. The Social Network-Interview on the DVD is cool

    I factor in the quality of songs when played live and the artwork in addition to the studio recording. I figure if TR goes out of his way to make each album a multi-media experience, then I treat them as such. No remix or Live, redundant.

    1- TDS
    2- Broken
    3- The Fragile
    4- PHM
    5- Withahha_Teethhaa!!
    (big drop off IMO after this)
    6- Year Zero (much like TF, a grower- but nothing ends up sticking out)
    7- Hesitation Marks (after multiple listens and seeing Tension live multiple times still doesn't do much for me :/ I've yet to come across someone in person to have anything good to say about HM)
    8- The Slip (understanding the process of the album, it ends up being OK at best- but only us NIN dorks know how it came to be. I can understand someone picking this out never hearing of NIN, and wondering what the fuss is all about with NIN)
    9- Ghosts (don't consider it a NIN album, I understand it to be labeled as such for marketing purposes though)

    I actually felt like doing it this way for this post.

    Nine Inch Nails 1989-2002
    1. The Downward Spiral
    2. The Fragile
    3. Pretty Hate Machine
    4. Broken
    5. And All That Could Have Been (Live/Still) [I actually prefer to put them together now, since they're connected anyway.]

    2. With Teeth
    3. Year Zero

    Oh, and while they're not albums, I thought of ranking Closure, And All That Could Have Been (Live), and Beside You In Time.

    1. And All That Could Have Been (Live)
    2. Closure

    It's quite hard to rank all the albums taken out of context. E.g. I really liked PHM in the early 90s but I never listen to it. I find it didn't age well but back then it was great. Anyway, there goes...

    1. TDS
    2. TF
    3. WT
    4. YZ
    5. HM
    6. TS
    7. Ghosts
    8. Broken
    9. PHM
