    @Beau-Daniel I read that Trent re-purposed abandoned "Fragile" material for Niggy Tardust.

    Maybe the greatest collaboration ever.

    Sounds like it could be from The Fragile.

    Trent's sense of percussion and rhythm was always my favorite aspect of NIN. Totally shines here. The chorus is great.

    I can't stand the chorus on this song. It would be the best song on the album without that chorus.

    I'm Guilty of making the truth up, kinda like lies, but one's to myself, when i observe the world i interpret, and force false facts, common mis-conceptions, upon myself, learning to release my ideas and just absorb and contract.

    Isn't this a Ghosts track? I just can't put my finger on it. (the verse part, not the chorus)

    This is the best song on the album...nothing else comes close.

    At times I think this may be the peak of the album... I also think people are considering this a Trent Reznor project and not that the two actually inspired each other, which is why the NIN fans are like 'OMG, its the best he's sounded since___ '. If Saul had The Roots produce, I'm sure they'd produce something that stood out against their catalogue as well. Feel me? I love that it's got some core Trent sounds because the energy fits with Saul's verbal dexterity and vice versa

    This and No One Ever Does with Banged and Blown Through are the highlights of the album (which isn't half bad).

    Agreed about this song being reminiscent of Peter Gabriel (who is beyond awesome). Saul and Trent are creating some serious magic here. Trent's work on this album sounds so much more potent than any NIN stuff after The Fragile.
