    Missing The Boat

    I never listened to industrial music a great deal before Nine Inch Nails.  I started tuning into Trent and his talents shortly after the Broken album was released.  Prior to that, I was completely oblivious to the band altogether.  I recall seeing people with the...

    Got Me Thru a Bad Time

    Who would have thought that a CD named the Downward Spiral could get me through a bad time in my life?  When I was going through secondary opiate withdrawl I couldn't sleep (amongst other things) and to calm my racing thoughts & twitching muscles I would put the...

    Closer? Really ?

    It makes me sad a lot of times when I talk to people about Nine Inch Nails, especially ones who claim to be fans. "Oh, they're the ones who sing I want to **** you like an animal right"? I just shrug it off and tell them yeah, they "sing" it. When I get pissed, I'll let them...

    Pretty Hate Machine

    I've never loved every single song on an album, till I heard Pretty Hate Machine. Since, I've fallen in love with other songs from them. Lately, not so much. I mean, the ones I hear end up being ones I like, but they're harder for me to find.

    Part of the Soundrack of My Teen Years

    It was back in about 1990 when I had a friend of mine bring over an album by some band he was ranting about called "Pretty Hate Machine", I listened to a couple songs but didn't really LISTEN as such since we were laughing and joking around as 10 year olds are wont to...

    Tangled

    What I admire the most about Mr. Trent Reznor is his ability to so subtly articulate all these complicated emotions. Whenever I'm in an emotional downward spiral, pun intended, I feel all my emotions as an extremely tangled mess of a hundred thousand wires and most music is just...

    Hesitation Marks - About To Hear It Friday Night

    any verdicts on the new album? I have read favorable reviews so far I love the story behind the title the statement of that. I am a NIN tragic I have wallpaper on my phone every album although I thought Trent had reached his use by date perhaps he ain't done with us just yet.

    NIN

    Well, I have loved NIN ever since I heard Pretty Hate Machine and every album that has been released up to With Teeth and Year Zero. I don't know about these last two... I know I enjoyed With Teeth more than Zero. As soon as I opened up the booklet for Zero I said oh god one of...

    Just A Song Or Two

    The one song I love by Nine Inch Nails is "Closer" I find it very erotic. "Closer" You let me violate you, you let me desecrate you You let me penetrate you, you let me complicate you Help me I broke apart my insides, help me I’ve got no soul to sell Help me the only...

    Heaven In My Ears

    If you look up the word angel, Trent's name should be the first thing that pops up. Honestly, that man can sing plus he is pretty hot. There isn't really much to say the title of this experience pretty much sums up everything, When I listen to the song "Closer by NIN" I can't...

    Then I Knew

    I've liked NIN ever since I can remember. But when I heard "Lights in the Sky" and "Something I Can Never Have (from the album Still)" I grew to really love them. Trent Reznor's voice is amazing. He sings with such emotion it's almost as if he can make you...

    Without NIN, Everything Falls Apart....

    In the summer of 93, I was a freshman in high school. I won tickets to a concert, and got to go see Poison, Damn Yankees, and Firehouse. I thought that that was the most kickass thing ever. Then it was 96. I went to Carver Hawkeye Arena in Iowa city to see a band called Nine...

    I've loved NIN since I was 12. I finally got to see them live last Dec. I hope to meet Trent Reznor someday. His music has helped me during tough times. I will thank him for that!!

    Had my mp3 on shuffle like most days

    and just stopped at N.I.N. and decided to just listen to it solely. I am not a big procurer of music or know much about genres, but as far as industrial sound I couldn’t get over how much Reptilian is such a great representation of the genre. I can see how for non fans it can...

    I love the Fragile album the most.

    For a few reasons I think. It was the first NIN album I really listened to and owned. I listened and listened and listened and still listen to it. I love the darkness and frustration and pain and confusion of that album. Trent's lyrics are great and the music that goes with them...
