Nov 5 2009, 18:14 di AnnaDraconidaGranted, this is ancient history, but I'd still like to write a few words about the Nine Inch Nails live experience I had on the 25th of July before the year's over 'cause then it'd be definitely too late.
As all fans know, before the final world tour Trent Reznor has announced the end of NIN as we know it 'cause he's really happy and sober and has decided that vagina >>>>>>>>> fistfuck after all. He also stopped performing Closer at every single show 'cause he doesn't want to fuck everyone in the world like an animal anymore. Bummer.
Knowing that this is last chance to see Mr.T live (unless the future deflation of his fuckpuppet will leave him pissed enough to go screaming around the world once more), and I love his work a lot, I originally wanted to see 2 shows, but it's been a terribly long, exhausting summer, with lots of traveling, heat, shitty accomodations & shitty people surrounding me. That comes from me being a part of the Romanian national cycling team, but let's not go off topic here. …

Feb 23 2007, 13:44 di doctorbigtimeThu 22 Feb – Nine Inch Nails, The Popo
I hate to use hyperbole when attempting to write something serious, but even with hindsight and the torpid emotional detachment of now sitting in front of a computer screen at work, I can still state flatly that this was the best live performance that I've ever attended.
The Popo, the obscure opening band, was kind of a mix of System of a Down and The Clash. I wasn't really paying attention, but they played about 6 different tracks, the first two of which nevertheless achieved my approval.
After a 20 minute break, the main event got into full gear. With the lights still on, a lengthy version of Pinion started blaring out to put us in the mood, which opened up with a loud and distortion heavy version of Wish. For the most part, I was expecting a collection of radio-friendly, popular favorite (e.g The Perfect Drug, Mr. Self Destruct), but was pleasantly rewarded with a lot of drum heavy lesser known tracks (e. …
Lug 31 2006, 11:22 di LukelabernAs many of you know, [album]With Teeth[/album] was a step in a new direction for Nine Inch Nails but Trent is still on the same path. He's still heading the same place; he's just getting there a little differently.
Maybe he's not as industrial as before; but that doesn't mean he's making mainstream genre music. He still trancends genres by the bucketload.
When you first listen to With Teeth, you'll hear the first verse:
Watching all the insects march along
Seem to know just right where they belong
Smears of face reflecting in the chrome
Hiding in the crowd I'm all alone
He then softens up his vocals and starts to let his heart out before the first minute of the album passes.
He then goes on, quite melancholy in preaching, to ask Why do you get all the love in the world?
The second track kicks off in your face in a big way. Angry noises and loud drums are carrying us through this one. It's a much harder track and like a more modern version from something that you may hear on Pretty Hate Machine.
Feb 19 2006, 2:05 di fling93This is also cross-posted on my blog (where I imagine it will probably be easier to read).
I think there are three kinds of music listeners. There are people who just shuffle their entire CD collection, people who create tailor-made playlists for every kind of circumstance and occasion, and people who listen to Michael Bolton because they like his hair. I happen to fall into the first category. When I use Windows, I use an old Winamp weighted-shuffler plugin RoboDJ (alas, no longer being maintained, but it still works fine). Similarly, when I use Macs, I use smart playlists to create a Do-It-Yourself Smart Radio Station. And if it happens to be 4:20 (which seems to be fairly often for some reason), I generally turn on the G-Force visualization (although, now that I have a new PC that can handle it, I'm giving Milkdrop a try).
Anyway, this was always reflected when I made mix CDs or tapes. I'd just pick a bunch of my favorite songs, mostly alternating the slow and fast ones to provide for a more shuffle-like variety. …
Dic 27 2005, 1:39 di terpsicoreLike everbody else, I'm doing a list of the 2005 albums that I enjoyed the most. On a first thought, this are the first that came to my mind:
Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel
It is nice having another DM album, after many years of absence. My favourite songs: Damaged People, The Sinner in Me, I Want It All, A Pain That I'm Used To.
NIN - With Teeth
I loved this album, from the first to the last track. I'm not a great connoisseur of NIN, but I must say I like them very much. My favourite songs: The Collector, Every Day is Exactly the Same, Only, The LIne Begins to Blur, right where it belongs.
La Barranca - El fluir
My favourite mexican band. They're just... perfect. The perfect combination. José Manuel Aguilera (the leader of the band, song composser, singer, guitar player) it's the perfect person who makes perfect songs, ergo, perfect discs. Period :P
Favourite songs: Hendrix, Ser un destello, Si acaso hay vida, Zafiro, Una tarde en la vida.
Diorama - Amaroid
