I'd liked NIN for years, but only owned one of their
cd's, "Downward Spiral" (I'm a loser ok? haha). Since they are
constantly on the radio I usually got my fill, even with older stuff
like Pretty Hate Machine. But I figured I'd just go buy this double cd,
since often the best songs are never released to radio.
This 2 cd set rules, usually on a NIN disk there's a song or 2 I'll skip
over...not here. I can't get the fuckin' thing out of my cd player...
This is total heavy industrial bliss for almost 2 hours. There's alot
of guitar on here, (for a NIN album) which definately adds to the
overall heaviness. Each of the songs has a "mood" to it...it's amazing
how Reznor gets emotions across through drum progaming, a bassline,
and a disgustingly distorted guitar sound...then out of nowhere,
there's a piano part, or acoustic guitar.
Can't decide if I like the "left" or "right" cd
better, right now it's a toss up...Favorite tracks are "The Wretched",
off the "Left" cd, and "Into The Void", "Where Is Everybody?", and "The
Big Come Down" off the "Right" cd.
