What. You still haven't listened to Sandinista???? Yeah it's so damn long, yeah there's about a third of it that you're never going to want to listen to again. But damn, man! Get on that.


Maybe an unpopular opinion (aside from liking nine inch nails in the first place not being the most popular of opinions around here), but the fragile is awesome. Totally makes my short list of double albums that I'm glad were double albums.

I have since heard Sandinista and Dark Magus.

I REALLY have to be in the right mood for NIN to get anything out of them so I keep putting off The Fragile.

Really, really cool. Quite an investment of time to return to regularly, but it's fucking powerful and quite heavy for jazz fusion.

Yeah that and Live Evil are probably his two heaviest releases. They are both thrilling but as you say not for frequent, repeated listens. Really nothing from that period of his is easily digestible.

I really love Disc 1 but I'm pretty lukewarm to Disc 2.

Disc 1 would be my favourite NIN album though.

However, the peak of Reznor's output will always be the Still EP.
