6.) Broken
7.) The Slip

I don’t count Ghosts because it’s soundtrack work and not like anything else in the discography. Same goes for Still.

haven't really heard the others enough to judge, lolz. those first 3-4 i genuinely love tho

smashingjj 12-08-2018 04:29 AM

The real question is how do they compare to White Lies albums

Funbags 12-08-2018 06:46 AM

They're all amazing except: Bad Witch, Add Violence, and With Teeth.

Downward Spiral is basically a perfect album.

Sonic Johnny 12-08-2018 08:03 AM

Hey OP: If you count the last couple EPs but not broken you're an irreparably stupid piece of shit.

Anyway here's the NIN releases that count, ranked in the only correct order:

1. Pretty Hate Machine
2. Broken
3. The Downward Spiral
4. The Fragile
5. And All That Could Have Been
6. With Teeth
7. Further Down The Spiral
8. Year Zero
9. Fixed
10. Ghosts

Sonic Johnny 12-08-2018 08:04 AM

Fun fact: no band from the 90s will ever top 'Gave Up' as a single tune

Funbags 12-08-2018 08:26 AM

I wish I knew where the first beat was supposed to be in the verses of Survivalism though.

Eulogy 12-08-2018 09:10 AM

This is not possible to do

Eulogy 12-08-2018 09:12 AM

Trying to rank phm against bad witch just makes my brain hurt.

1. Phm, broken, tds, fragile, the slip, ntae, av, bw
1a. Wt, yz, hm

Third or fourth best song on broken imo

Eulogy 12-08-2018 09:16 AM

Year zero over downward spiral is an interesting choice

Must be too difficult for you

That’s the worst song on the album though (sans Pinion/Hell)

Also, PHM is great for the time and era and zeitgeist of the moment, but other than a few classic tracks, aged beyond terrible

I also do not understand why the trilogy isn’t universally *raved* about. Critically the trilogy is the best stuff Trent’s ever put out, but the fans seem split. It’s noisy and angry with screaming, very industrial, nostalgic, weighty with concept, cryptic artwork and themes, but also has lots of live instruments.

The songs are rock solid, She’s Gone Away, Burning Bright, Less Than, Not Anymore, Background World, Shit Mirror, Ahead of Ourselves, Play the Goddamn Part, Over and Out...

I think aggressive and challenging music isn’t for the older part of NIN’s fanbase anymore

Mals Marola 12-08-2018 11:47 AM

i don't know i've heard quite a bit of good things about the newest 3 releases, i haven't heard Bad Witch yet but of the two EP's i definitely gravitated more toward AV

in any case, i must be the only person in this thread to actually like WithaTeetha!

Bad Witch is really funky, Add Violence is like...pop mixed with noise, NTAE is just really gloomy and dense. They all have their own identity which is why I donít want to lump them together even though Trent says theyíre meant to go together

I like parts of WT, but the lyrics are so fucking bad on that album

And I know Trentís lyrics have never been amazing but there is usually a sense of mystique and intrigue in his lyrics but theyíre so banal on the album...ĒI am a good boy and I want to swallow it all SWALLOW IT ALL SWALLOW IT ALLĒ is cringey. It also lacks a lot of soundscapes and Trent admitted he wanted to make it more pop friendly.

But it also has some golden songs like All the Love in the World, and the last four songs which are fucking epic. I mean itís still a 6/10 for me, I just donít ever listen to it

ninsp 12-08-2018 12:06 PM

I have a weird view on NIN since much of the albums don’t hold nostalgia for me, I was raised with it, and it’s always been a presence in my life so I have a fairly objective view of his work, IMO. Each album has a different spot in my life because I was always exposed to the new albums through my family. I didn’t even like The Fragile for most of my younger life. Year Zero used to be my number 1, because nothing sounded like it to my ears as a 17 year old

Objectively, I’d say Fragile/YZ/Spiral are all the most ambitious albums and all pretty equal masterpieces

Mals Marola 12-08-2018 12:12 PM

yeah i mean, i realize i have it last on my short list but i've always found it really compulsively listenable - also i really love the "Trent doing Oasis" thing he has going on on "Every Day"

that might just be me tho :stan:

I mean it is easy to listen to, for sure. Every Day is not a bad song either. I donít like a lot of the bullshit ones like You Know What You are?, collector, getting smaller etc

Last is my fav

As for the list:
1 Broken
2 Pretty Hate Machine ( Fav: Kinda I want to)
3 The Downward Spiral(Fav: Ruiner)
4 The Fragile(Fav: No you don't)

After that I don't know how to rank the rest I'm obviously more of fan of the old school though, I still feel like I'm going to hell just for listening to Heresy though :tapedshut

Last makes me want to start breaking stuff.

ninsp 12-08-2018 12:48 PM

I truly don’t think there is an album with as much visceral anger as Broken

Help Me I Am in Hell is absolute masterwork and probably one of his best songs ever. Wtf are you talking about.

God when they busted it out live I about peed myself with glee.

Eulogy 12-08-2018 01:10 PM

Getting smaller is also a top five with teeth track.
