Broken |TVT/ Intersocope Rec., 1992, {halo 5}|

Pinion, Wish, Last, Help me I'm in hell, Happiness in slavery, Gave up, Physical, Suck


It's the best NIN record. Full of raw aggression, hatred, no remorses. Produced by Trent Reznor & Flood. Assisted by Sean Beaven and Chris Vrenna (nowadays known as Tweaker) amongst all. The CD shows 99 songs. Well known trick when we get several empty tracks and a surprise in the end which is Suck, a cover version of the song by Adam Ant (do you remember him of Bootsy Cat song from the 80's?). A huge amount of guitar driven anger mingled with excellent samples gave this record my biggest attention. It's a turning point for NIN to go forward with that style of music and achieve its success later with The Downward Spiral record. It's also the album which I compare every next NIN album to. What a pity this is only an EP and the music finishes too fast! ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. Must not be used for promotional or commercial purposes. See a Legal Note for the copyrights below)

Fixed |Nothing/Interscope, 1992, {halo 6}|

Gave Up, Wish, Happiness Is Slavery, Throw This Away, Fist Fuck, Screaming Slave


The kicking ass remixes for Broken album music. A masterpiece showing how to remix aggressive, guitar driven songs. Made by Coil, J.G 'Foetus' Thirwell, Butch Vig and well known NIN members. Incredible radical Wish (by Foetus) and Throw This Away (Reznor, Vrenna, Vig), Happiness In Slavery (Reznor, Vrenna, P.K.). Don't throw this CD away! ;) ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz.

The Downward Spiral |Interscope Rec., 1994, {halo 8}|

Mr. Self Destruct, Piggy, Heresy, March Of The Pigs, Closer, Ruiner, The Becoming, I Do Not Want This, Big Man With A Gun, A Warm Place, Eraser, Reptile, The Downward Spiral, Hurt


Reznor seems to be half philosophical and half in a despair here. Controlled anger. Lots of dark instrumental soundscapes (the title song, also The Becoming). There is also Closer song, played commonly at most of underground music parties all around the world. TDS gained lots of good comments from the world of media and it gave a variety of new fans to NIN fanbase. 1994 was a good year for industrial rock music and as for TDS it's a typical product of the highest value showing what industrial rock genre is indeed. It's also another NIN album giving an influence for not only industrial rock bands. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. Must not be used for promotional or commercial purposes.

March Of The Pigs |TVT/Interscope, 1994, {halo 7}|

March of the Pigs, Reptilian, All the Pigs All Lined Up, A Violet Fluid, Underneath the Skin


There are two or three versions of that single, the second lacks A Violet Fluid and Underneath the Skin songs. It's a very good single, it sucks A Violent Fluid is so short! Should be enlarged and remixed in the future by Reznor. All the Pigs it's a remix for March of The Pigs in a longer and even more exciting version to the original song. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz.

Closer |TVT/Interscope, 1994, {halo 9}|

CLOSER TO GOD: Closer To God, Heresy (Blind), Memorabilia, March of the Fuckheads

FURTHER AWAY: Closer, Closer (Deviation), Closer (Further Away), Closer (Precursor), Closer (Internal)


It's a double CD digipack with Closer To God and Further Away singles. The remixes are made by Danny Hyde i Peter Christopherson from Coil, Dave Ogilvie from Skinny Puppy, Flood and others. Memorabilia it's a cover version of Soft Cell song. There is the most kicking ass ever heard remix for Closer song named 'Closer To God'. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz.

Further Down The Spiral |TVT /Interscope, 1995, {halo 10}|

Piggy (nothing can stop me now), The Art of Self Destruction (part one), Self Destruction (part three), Heresy (version), The Downward Spiral (the bottom), Hurt (live), At The Heart of It All, Ruiner (version), Eraser (denial; realization), Self Destruction (final)


Remixes for The Downward Spiral. Mr Reznor knows how to earn money ;) Releasing two records - an original and the remixes with a short time gap between gives him usually some additional money for sure. He knows also how to rise his fans imagination by leaving them alone for a few years and putting out then a record which is a way cool better then the previous one. Awesome versions for Heresy, The Downward Spiral, Ruiner and Eraser. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. Must not be used for promotional or commercial purposes.

Pretty Hate Machine |TVT/Interscope, 1989, {halo 2}|

Head Like a Hole, Terrible Lie, Down It All, Sanctified, Something I Can Never Have, Kinda I Want To, Sin, That's What I Get, The Only Time, Ringfinger


The debut NIN album is a cult record now and it stands like a strong influence for most of industrial rock bands. Reznor made a passage for industrial
rock to enter the popular media like TV or a radio broadcast and created himself like a non stop suffering person. Suffering of his own spirit. It was a pattern and a turning point for a huge amount of young people to find their fears and expression in NIN music. Those who admire cold, electronic sounds with a simple bassline and the atmosphere of disbelief and despair will love this record and such songs like Sin, Head Like A Hole, Down It All, Something I Can Never Have or Sanctified. Ringfinger might be omitted ;) ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz. Must not be used for promotional or commercial purposes. See a Legal Note for the copyrights below)
