    My subjective review of "The Slip"

    "The Slip", as this is what it is called, after a short and enigmatic introduction ruthlessly attacks the listener's ears with loud drums and an even louder, ragged dose of sounds with roots somewhere in a heavily distorted guitar. It's not easy, Reznor didn't sow such a nice piece of time. And this title million refers to the miles the author feels, and with the same overlapping voices, he reveals that he feels nothing and jumps off every roof. The development of similar energy is in the composition number three, which further presses the confused listener with an almost punk feeling.


    I was sitting over a piece of paper writing down the ratings of individual songs, still dazzled by the news and already in the middle of the album I was dazzled by what note I wanted to put out. Just in case, I counted the average and everything is fine. I'm browsing through these sentences, I think about the fact that in full consciousness I omitted in the review the fifth track, to which I have the most mixed attitude, but that doesn't matter. It's certainly not bad, I just have such small perturbations with it, not everything has to impress me right away, you can give it some more time.


    It is 8 out of 10 for me!

    Letting You and Head Down are two of my favorite "heavy" NIN tracks.

    If I'd not heard this album and just read this review, I would assume that it was a screamo album about a suicidal immortal with schizophrenia.
    This reads like it was entirely written by a predictive text algorithm.

    I'd be interested in your review of every single album. I'm so confused and more of this may make eventually make sense

    I did hear someoen say that The Slip's the third angriest NIN record and I guess I agree with that.

    In case someone is still confused: it was a spambot

    I could see that, Broken being #1 angriest and Bad Witch #2

    Agreed, and I don’t even think it’s close. TS has some decent hard rock bangers but, yeah.

    Now go and do yourselves a favor and listen to “heavy” music (NIN or otherwise) everyone!

    I dunno, I think it is hard to determine which NIN albums are the angriest, a lot of them are actually pretty angry even Post-Fragile, I find With_Teeth to be perhaps angrier than Slip itself, dunno, it is a silly thought I have, to meassure the "anger" levels, mostly since people dismiss NIN as lacking that after a certain point but I kinda disagree with that.

    I would assume that English is this person's second language, and that they are doing better than I would do in any other language, so I will say, yeah. I can dig it. I appreciate that you like the album. It's a good one!

    What's the purpose of these? I get the desperate ones with the links but the spam posts with blocks of nonsense text. What's the endgame?

    That's a bot? Weird, it reminds of the middle-aged guy who wanders around town proclaiming himself to be intellectually superior to everyone else while doing shrooms in his step-dads basement.

    The Slip hits pretty hard for me, lyrically mostly. Feeling Anesthetised.

    I just want to make sure we all recognize how funny "It is 8 out of 10 for me!" is. I laughed for a steady five minutes after reading that.
