    Am I the only one who loved the idea of the physical components, but couldn't resist to buy also the CDs now that are avaliable? (I feel a bit bad for buying two times tha same albums, but I don't know I just needed it).

    you think twice is bad? i own two vinyl copies of NTAE (one with the blue inner sleeve, one with the red - one of those covers is also signed), one copy of the CD, one physical component...and i'm small potatoes compared to some collectors on this board. why are NIN fans so obsessive?

    and apparently (according to someone on FB) there IS a blue CD booklet, which is going to drive a lot of us insane.

    Hey all, random question... Someone on Twitter messaged me if I had any high-res photos of Trent and David Bowie on a couch. I assume for an interview. Anyone able to help me out in this regard? Thanks!

    Cant find the full source but perhaps this is the picture they’re looking for, someone has a pretty nice shot from the that Trent/Bowie Kurt Loder interview. https://goo.gl/images/Eefa6K

    Do the remastered vinyls come with download cards and if so are they the remastered versions found on the vinyl themselves?

    Hello.
    Does anyone remember a "Head Like A Hole" version that is primarily drums and bass? It sounds similar to the original pigface version of Suck (and I had it on a Texas Pete bootleg contained both).

    If anyone can help, it's driving me nuts

    Sounds like the Opal mix, from the UK single.

    My AATCHB DVD says 4:3 aspect ratio on the back but it plays back 16:9. Is it stretching or is 4:3 a printing mistake?

    I just read that Jimmy Iovine is going to be leaving Apple in August. Anyone know if Trent is still working for them? I remember the Songexploder thing came out on Spotify first which made me wonder if he was still there

    I tracked down copies of NTAE and AV on CD for my collection at local music stores back when they were released, but never opened them. I originally had purchased the WAVs when I bought the physical elements, so I got used to the way those sounded.

    Anyways, I recently got 2nd copies of each from Amazon so I could check out the booklets, i have ripped the CDs, and they sound way different than the WAVs im used to listening to.

    Were the eps remixed or mastered differently for the CD releases? Or is it the format or even my hardware possibly?

    Probably your hardware. The mastering is identical, the WAV files are just a different sample rate than the CD audio.

    EDIT: Oh, except that the CD cuts off the end of "The Background World" a fraction of a second earlier.

    Also, the finale of "She's Gone Away" gets a little bit louder right at the very end of the CD version, compared to the download. This additional crescendo also happens on the vinyl, as well as the Twin Peaks soundtrack CD version — where it gets even louder — but that version also features slightly different mastering of the entire track. Gotta catch 'em all!

    Does anyone remember the lineage of this image?



    Someone dug it up on reddit and last.fm is the only site that uses it as the cover for the song. I feel like I've seen it on nin.com a long time ago, but can't remember exactly how it was used, if it ever was. Anyone remember the context?

    Yes, this is (at least derived from) official promo artwork — the topmost blob seems to be an incredibly blurry still from the music video — and the image was first used online circa 2001 somewhere on the pre-AATCHB NIN.com! This site was sporadically updated for a long time, as there really was nothing new to talk about for well over a year while TR was staying under the radar. It also came along with a whole set of mini-documentaries, containing clips of behind-the-scenes footage from the "Deep" parking garage video shoot, too, and the director's treatment (embedded, if I recall correctly, in a Flash applet Rob Sheridan put together as a mini-site).

    Nobody saved any of those other pieces, I don't think; I've never seen them listed in the major archive projects... no idea why this one started popping up via scrobbling, could be user-submitted from someone who did save a screenshot, maybe. Or perhaps, I dunno, NIN is preparing to officially re-issue it in the Definitive series somewhere? A bonus on the re-release of Still, maybe (although that seems a bit incongruous, it's at least era-appropriate).

    I have it in the nin.com section of http://nindestruct.com. The only way I've gotten it to be completely functional is opening in Internet Explorer though.. The other browsers just try to download it.

    Also in the misc. section I have a Deep Flash promo video. That might be of interest.

    Thanks! Not running IE anymore but I'll try and check it out with Edge.

    Oh jeez, as if there were a way it could somehow look even worse on HD displays! Even an HD format up-resolution conversion from the master video file probably would look better than the DVD does; the MPEG encoding on that puppy has visible blocking compression freakouts just from trying to handle those strobe effects. Possibly something to look into if they ever reissue it on streaming services or Blu-ray (though that's probably unlikely).

    Randomly looking at this thread reminds me I need to buy Add Violence and Not The Actual Events vinyl copies off the store.
