Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

I find I don't listen to single tracks of NIN. I HAVE to listen to an entire album or EP.
Each album has a real "feel" to it, and each track has a place on that album.
(that's not to say I may not repeat a track or two during a listen)...

Broken is prolly my fave. HAPPINESS IN SLAVERY is the stand out track...

I'm not as big a fan of the later albums, but I have to say that the newer stuff sounded AWESOME when I saw NIN live last year in Sydney!

I'm actually very excited by the news that Reznor is working with Gary Numan on some tracks.
Numan's "Pure" and "Jagged" are astounding. "Pure" in some ways out NINed NIN.

After I saw Gary Numan live last year (it was a good year) I heard a few people (who obviously familiar with last couple of his albums) complain that it sounded like "a NIN cover band.

Yeah, "PURE" is an cracker album, and "Jagged" continues, "evolves" the sound, I guess that is Fenton's influence....? anyway this is a NIN thread so:

I'm going to nominate "Mr. Self Destruct". Great opener for the album, the samples from THX1138 (man is being beaten by a prison guard) lend a nice touch....


sets up the entire album.....

great stuff

Ruiner. Nothing by NIN can top the guitar solo by Adrian Belew in that one..

except maybe that drum solo in piggy, which was also not done by Michael Reznor.. (it was Tommy Lee of that hair band, whatever their name was)

Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

Well it's been a long time since I was a teenager, My teen years were over before Trent became a teen.
Yikes!!
In my opinion he's one of our greatest living artists.
I enjoy all of his music.
He's a great innovator in synthesis.

My favorite tune of his from the more recent years would be
'In This Twilight'.

The first CD of The Fragile is pretty much perfect.

Not actually true, the solo was done by Reznor and he has said so in many interviews. Here is a quote from ninWiki...

Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

the liner notes in the cd itself say otherwise..

He's a douche though (definitively), wouldn't surprise me if he was lying. His thing has always been trying to portray that he does everything on the albums by himself when.. that just isn't true.

Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

There are two sets of drums being played. There is the beat, and then there is the solo. I disagree with the douche statement because he does not write himself down in the liner notes as "Drum Solo" etc but only writes himself down as collaborating with others.

Also 90% of the drums used in TDS are live drum samples.

Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

Yeah but for years he took 100% of the credit for that album.. and it's my favorite by NIN. I can't really get past the fact though that he is, in fact, a cockhead.

He went from wanting to 'fuck you like an animal' to 'we're all in this together na-how' in the blink of an eye. Then again, during the mid-90s artists like Al Jourgensen said he was 'the most miserable and depressed human being he'd ever met'.

Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

Not really a blink of an eye, kinda took forever for that new EP to come out. He went through rehab, lost his grandmother and he was miserable. Those things would completely change my outlook as well.

Bottom line: Michael Reznor is the original emo

IMHO Trent's lost his way in recent years, NIN's early albums are his best work.

My faves: Sin, Happiness In Slavery, and Hurt.

Re: What is the best song by NIN Nine Inch Nails?

Man, I just got the album Still a bit ago, and it's really incredible.

Kind of semi-acoustic renditions of Nine Inch Nails tracks with some instrumentals. Completely cool all around, and I can definitely recommend it.

"Still" is a great album, "Leaving Hope" is a fucking dope track!

I love the kind of hollow, empty feel the album generates!
