One day it was on tv and a scene where a robot crushed a bunch of bystanders was on and all the screams sounded very familiar. I put on the Becoming and sure enough, it was the same sample. I loved Trent even more after that day.
Yeah, I like Reptile a lot, I think it leads into The Downard Spiral(song) very well. Unlike you though, I found out he sampled that movie through good ol' Wikipedia. I always chuckle at the end of The Becoming when Trent goes real high pitched, and yells "It won't give up it wants me dead, god damn this voice inside my head!"

New song, "Came Back Haunted" on Soundcloud:

https://soundcloud.com/nineinchnails...k-haunted-2013

New album Hesitation Marks out September 3rd.



From what I'd heard, Trent intended to "reinvent" the band and/or their sound. The track sounds ok but doesn't sound anything like a reinvention to me. I really think it's his vocals since With Teeth that get in the way of really enjoying his music. Don't get me wrong, each album since has had a few great songs, but as a whole all the albums have a similar sound because of his vocals. There's no longer the obvious different that existed between Pretty Hate Machine, Broken, The Downward Spiral, and obviously The Fragile. I really wish he'd done something different vocally. I think it's something he fails to realize ties together everything he's done after The Fragile.

I totally agree. And it's not just his singing, it's the way the writes vocal melodies. Even on the How to Destroy Angels stuff, it's still distinctly his vocal style even with his wife singing it.

One thing I learned after listening to Nine Inch Nails for 8 years is every album stands alone.

Anyone checked the two new albums? Got good reviews but right now I'm going through their discography. I've only heard The Downward Spiral, The Fragile and With Teeth. All many years ago.

I did. They're pretty good ambient albums. Not your typical NIN album. It's a continuation of their Ghosts series where they just create with out a real aim or focus.

If I remember right, the original Ghosts songs were them just jamming out a song every day for a while. Or every week. I don't remember.

Edit: The Ghosts series is all instrumental, not vocals.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

Both of the new ones are ambient albums? Thought only one of them was.

I'll still check. Bit disappointed if there are no vocals.

Pretty Hate Machine is really good.

I've been meaning to listen to it since 2005.

All I know of the ambiance is this, but I did love it.

Pretty Hate Machine is still the best thing Reznor has put out, but I love the original Quake soundtrack to death too.
