Too bad Youtube compresses the fuck outta the video making the 4k resolution worthless.

Trent Reznor @trent_reznor · 2h

They aren't know for fighting or disagreements.

I'm listening to them for the first time right now.

Their music is pretty bonkers and if the music is any insight into who they are as people, it's not surprising they couldn't keep it together.

I like what I'm hearing though. I had no idea Zach Hill was involved. Had I known that I would've given them a shot a long time ago.

LOL, they announced their break-up on toilet paper. Gotta love their craziness even if their music isn't my cup o' tea.

saw the tour last night at jones beach. trent's set was similar to his tension tour stuff i saw in october minus the backup singers. it was solid as always with a great version of Sanctified. i wish trent did more from downward spiral for the 20th anniversary but i guess he has to include some different stuff for people who havent seen him.

i was impressed by soundgarden, i was expecting worse after hearing about chris cornell's voice. he sounded good, better than perry for sure. i was happy i got a chance to see them.

has anyone else caught this tour?

I gave thought, mostly because of Soundgarden whom I've only seen once before at the 2nd Lolla back in '92. I've been occasionally checking the NIN setlists and comments about this tour and it really seems they are on auto-pilot now... same old encores, same basic setlists, just nothing that I haven't seen done better in past tours. AFAIC, NIN peaked on the farewell tour in '09 and they're now in Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, etc territory still putting on competent shows but trading on past glories. The final... nail in the coffin is the fact Trent's ignoring many of his harder rocking guiter-based tunes. It's another once-favorite band I'll take a pass on this year.

Yeah I agree with the setlist. I'm usually impressed by his setlists and his affinity for changing atleast 5 or so songs every night, but from what I've seen on this tour he's only switching out a few and the ones that are switched are from newer albums.

Since I saw the Tension tour, I would have been happy with only 1 song from Hesitation Marks (or atleast different songs like I Would For You or In Two instead of Copy of A/Came Back Haunted).

There wasn't a single song from The Fragile which was super lame.

Agreed. That tour was amazing. It was just "fuck you, here's our best stuff!"

Agreed. Best NIN album, no songs played?

Trent's voice is totally hoarse, so he can't scream any of his old songs, so he tries to cover it up with mellow songs (and the lame excuse that "we're artists now, check out this tambourine solo!") and light shows.

I probably won't ever see NIN again unless it's at a festival I am attending to see someone else. Trent will just never put on those magically awesome shows he used to. Mostly because he can't physically do it. But he's still charging 100 bucks a ticket anyway. Not cool. I don't care about current light technologies that much.
