    I've always wanted to meet someone, a big fan like me talk to about NIN music, mainly just industrial music in general or just simply enjoy listening to it for hours.... not even needed to talk actually. Just to let the music take us. I've always wanted to have a NIN fan as a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Now I've dipped into NIN down the years, but I unearthed my cd single of 'Closer', and it reminded me of just how damn dirty and sexy the song is!   Mizz

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
