    Three cheerz to Trent and co. for bringing both the funk and the noise, this late in the game. In three short years, I'll have been an NIN fan for THREE FULL DECADES, and Ghosts was the only disappointment - but that's not because it was BAD; rather, it was only REASONABLY good, imho. It was still GOOD, though. Not many other bands have this sort of track record, ESPECIALLY the part where they go hard as fuck like like they did in the old days, thirty years in.

    Think about it: The Fragile - "I'll be damned, NIN's still got it.
    Year Zero: "Holy Shit, NIN's STILL got it"

    And now THIS.

    Yes, we all have our favorites - for me, With Teeth and Hesitation Marks were a LITTLE uneven, (especially HM,) but they were still Pretty Fucking Good and featured some GREAT songs.

    Sorry for rant/sorry if this counts as drift.
    Everything is subjective based upon the individual really. I loved everything up to and including With Teeth - then Year Zero was a real dip for me personally as well as The Slip or Ghosts bar selected tracks from each album.

    Hesitation Marks brought me back big time- I thought it was much more consistent in terms of quality (bar Running, ugh!) and now we have these EPs where I am just prepared to take it as it comes. I know I'll never go back to being that NIN fanboy that thought the band was completely untouchable and that's fine. I was younger, had less diverse tastes in music and a lot of growing to do emotionally and mentally. The fascinating thing is hearing that Trent has obviously done a lot of that too. His songs won't always speak to me personally but they do a hell of a lot of the time and that's still pretty fucking good right?

    For real, the Trilogy is my third favorite NIN album if you put all of the releases together.

    When NTAE first came out Dear World was by far my least favorite, but now I freaking love that song. There's so much going on and there's always a new noise/rhythm/detail that I pick up on. The song almost seemed boring to me on first listen, but now it's a banger that is pulsing and atmospheric.

    Happy to see the Idea Of You ranked so highly. I wish Not Anymore got more attention and love from the fans, that one seems to be a love it or hate it type song.

    Funny: my favorite of the trilogy is "Add violence", but i can't stand "Not Anymore"...

    Yeah Not Anymore is one of those divisive NIN songs where it seems like a lot of people rank it as one of their worst but the people who do have a positive opinion of it really like it. I'm just curious, what don't you like about it?

    It's the chorus, it gets too repetitive and annoying

    Top comment of this video - hadn’t thought of that before: loop repeats 52 times, Trent’s age at the time, etc. mortality and decay.
