Year Zero is probably my least favorite thing Trent has done with Nine Inch Nails. I mean some tracks are okay but some of the tracks five years later do absolutely nothing for me. I went back recently and started listening to all of my old NIN records from front to back and YZ was probably the one I enjoyed the least. I was never really into the whole concept and reusing a lot of the same drum sounds, glitches just kind of gives the album a very cheap sound. I actually think I enjoy the YEARZEROREMIXED record way more than this. Again, I appreciate it for what it is...but when you compare this to Downward Spiral, Fragile..and hell With Teeth, something about Year Zero just doesn't hold us as much to me.
Didnt realy like this album for years, in fact since release. To me it was the 2nd worst NINs album with Pretty Hate Machine (sorry not into the 80s vibe on it). But today in my car, this became THE GREATEST ALBUM EVER!!. dunno what happened but now i love it. Id say it maybe the one of the best NIN albums.
Fragile > WithTeeth + Still >YearZero now for me
The Nerveshatter remix of "Capital G" is now available for streaming/download. Worry not, as it's still very much in line with the original vision. http://www.last.fm/music/Nerveshatter/Pale+Fascination/Capital+G+Remix
