Nine Inch Nails

I must be getting old, this is too much at this time of the day....9:45am and i've just had to put up with 4 Nine Inch Nails tracks (and rising, left the room) from the newly arrived live DVD, the missus insists on giving it a look before she has to go to work....already she's discovered (she'll have picked it off the net somewhere) a egg (Trent Reznor ) somewhere during the song 'Starf***ers Inc.' when they go into 'You're So Vain' if you press ENTER during this point (somewhere) it goes to another version of the song with Marilyn Manson on stage with 'em then they perform 'Beautiful People'.

Also the "plastic strip" is supposed to uncover some hidden contents in the packaging....anyone found any, i couldn't!?!?!?!?

No idea about the hidden extras, but which version you got? DD5.1 or DTS? What's the sound like? I have the 5.1 but thinking of replacing with DTS but not sure if it's really worth the hassle!

Still waiting for my DD version to arrive. Although as soon as I ordered it I thought "I should have gone for the DTS one" Argh!

We got the DTS version, and from what i heard it did sound pretty darn good, just blasted out "Head Like A Hole" and it sounded fantastic!

Hmm, anyone have the DD one and tell me if that is good?

Oh, I'll probably just get the DTS one and sell me other though.

The Downward Spiral... The most commercial, I know, but if you don't like this, you'll hate the other stuff...

EDIT: My girlfriend reckons Pretty Hate Machine (but I don't honestly agree...)

Also i'd say The Fragile is the most commercial. Although 'Closer' must be there biggest selling single.

I ordered mine from Movietyme m8.

Not a great fan of NIN myself, it's the missus, however if i had to choose one of there CDs i'd go for 'Pretty Hate Machine' myself...recall seeing them on there first UK appearance around the time of 'PHM' supporting Guns N' Roses @ Wembley Stadium, it was a case of what the ****** was that....nobody was ready for 'em, including me.

Well, I would rate Pretty Hate Machine as the most accessable album for a newcomer. Even though it's the first album, manages to stay fresh sounding 10 years on. (Infact, I've got it with me in the office today, think I'll stick it on).
Broken is also good, if short. The music starts getting more angst and experimental here.
The Downward Spiral is a very dark album, written when Trent was in a Very Bad Place, and as such is both some of his best work yet most difficult to listen too. Not one to recommend to a depressive
Kind of finally, is The Fragile. A double CD, this contains a lot more mellow sounding NIN. Many fans accused him of selling out with this and going soft, but if you listen to the lyrics, they are just as twisted as ever. This album has the most divided opinion about it. Personally I love it.

Avoid the remix albums for now, Fixed, Further down the Spiral and Things Falling Apart. More for die-hard NIN fans.

So, I'd say start off with PHM and Broken. And Fragile. And Downward Spiral. Oops, not much help really.

'Pretty Hate Machine' for sure. Even after all these years every single song is still great.

'The Fragile'(2CD) is also very good.

Get both of them

No - I agree with you

PHM always reminds me of earlier Depeche Mode for some reason.
Broken onwards is the way to go (at least - that's how I got into them).

As an aside, I saw a very interesting 'act' in the Tunnel nightclub in New York (the one in the American Psycho book). It was done to the tune of NIN's Piggy and involved Pasta, a plastic sheet and a young woman with poor bladder control
The response from the (mostly young, clubby type) audience was "eurgh!", when she got to the finale

turning to the DVD, I got my DTS version yesterday and just bunged it on to have a look - OMG! HOW LOUD IS THAT!!!

My levels are have been the same for a while now and I normally play DTS films at -35 but the music starts on this one and is quite loud at -50!

The special bit is:

Disc 2 --11 minutes and 19 seconds press 7 (and enter on some machines)

You get the marilyn manson bit and the videos of Reptile and ....er forgotten , wiht a choice of tv adverts aswell.

Sorry if this is common knowledge.
