Love the sound Trent was going for on this record. Huge record but I love every second. There is some filler but personally, I think NIN tends to blend these tracks very well together within the rest of the stand-outs creating and re-enforcing the thematic concept of the album to make an exceptional experience.

If he had thrown out the last nine songs, this would probably be in my top 100. Still good though.

Really great album from NIN. Long, but quality tracks throughout. Starfuckers doesn't really feel like it belongs on the album, not a weak track, but a really poor fit. Pilgrimage doesn't do anything for me either. Besides that, not really anything to complain about on this album. Into the Void and Somewhat Damaged are the top tracks on the album. Not quite as good as Downward Spiral, but not far behind.

The lenght is okay, but they need to delete some songs from it. My favourites are Somewhat Damaged, The Big Come Down and We're In This Together Now. The last tracks are also great.
One thing I habe to said, is that the 90's NIN artworks weren't brilliant, a seashell? a tree? A great band overall

At the end of the 20th Century comes the 21st Century sequel to Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'. Play loud. Be prepared to be sonically flayed, de-constructed & purified. Highlight - 'The Great Below', the perfect ballad for the isolationist cyber society.

Quite morbid, but very good. Highlights are the Big Come Down, the Wretched, and La Mer.

This one is hurt quite a bit by the expectation factor, and compounded by the 100 minute factor. NIN usually does not disappoint, but this one is well short of the mark, as it tends to ramble and lose direction, and clocking in at 1 hour 43 minutes certainly does not help. "Just Like You Imagined" and "Into the Void" are a couple of the better tracks here.
