from what I heard (very little, and all hearsay), his nothing deal fucked him nearly as bad as his TVT/WaxTrax! deal. He's gotta be real impressed with the music 'industry' right now. You'd think the guy would learn a thing or two about contracts...Originally posted by deep
yeah, reznor's been bogged down by all kinds of legal bullshit

Of all his albums, I keep coming back to the Downward Spiral. I just never seem to get really tired of it; Pretty Hate Machine is fabulous, but that synth-pop style can get old on my ears after a few (dozen haha) listens.
Hands down favourite for me is The Downward Spiral. The copy I bought when it first came out is nearly unreadable from abuse, so I'm happy to hear that it's going to be remastered and rereleased. Especially in 5.1. I don't know if any of you have heard any 5.1 audio i.e. Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon, but it's fucking spectacular. Maybe in ten years more audio will be similarly encoded for that "live and all around you" feel. I'm pretty excited if Reznor says that TDS really translated well to 5.1.Originally posted by seeker
So, I'm curious to know what people's thoughts are on 'The Best NIN album'. Which one? I know a lot of people are really into 'The Fragile', although I never listened to it enough to care. 'The Downward Spiral' and its numerous singles/remixes certainly brought NIN to the mainstream -- which is odd, since nearly every review of the album at the time it was released was negative, and critics bashed it for how strange and unlistenable it was. Then there's 'Pretty Hate Machine' with its catchy synth-pop stylings.
PHM is the only one I really bother to listen to anymore, although I haven't had a decent copy of 'The Downward Spiral' to listen to in years.
I love broken. . at times it was my favorite album of thiers.Originally posted by Syntax Error
i guess there's no love for broken.
Unless you're talking about something else, the issue isn't with his record company (Interscope), it's with his ex-manager and account...he's suing them, claiming that they stole from him. The ex-manager launched a lawsuit first, claiming Reznor owes him money.Originally posted by seeker
