5.0 out of 5 stars highly rated November 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best re-issues to date. The 5.1 and advanced surround mixes are A+, which is what one would expect from Trent Reznor. Im assuming you know how good The Downward Spiral is , so i wont go into to that, suffice to say, it rates as one fo the best albums of the 90's and one of my personal favorites, this album got me through many a breakup and hard time. Ive never heard NIN sound so good, i do have the concert dvd so i knew beforehand how good this medium can sound in surround, but in album form its breathtaking. Sounds revolve around me and im hearing things ive never heard before, it makes me wish more albums were mixed in 5.1 The clarity of the sound is as such you can hear him draw breath before some verses and the difference between this and a regular cd is that with a cd you always sort of know that its a cd playing...with this if you close your eyes its like the band itself if playing in front of you. Industrial/electronic music like this is perfect for surround because of all the layers of sound and this , i promise you will not dissapoint. It blows most of the trash on today out of the water.'The extras are the best ive encountered of all the dvd's i have... in the discography , there is one or two songs (in cd quality) you can listen to from each album! Considering the amount of albums,singles and remix projects NIN has , this is quite a bonus, also you get concert footage from both his previous dvd's. To top it off there are 3 vidoes on this...closer (in stereo and surround), march of the pigs and hurt. Considering i paid less for this than most dvd's out now, it has to be the best value for money musicwise i got all year....very highly recommended...enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars "And even when I'm right with you, I am so far away..." November 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I still can't believe that it was ten years ago that this epic of an industrial masterpiece came out. To this day, it remains a very popular album that people can never get enough of. It's classic Nine Inch Nails that can never be duplicated, no matter how hard one tries. It's angry, depressing, violent, disturbing and beautiful. So, how do you celebrate the 10 year anniversary of this fine album? You re-release it... and use all of your powers to make it sound better than ever before.

That was accomplished with "The Downward Spiral: The Deluxe Edition." All of the songs are here, and they have each been remastered so you can listen to these classic songs in a whole new way. It was a little hard to notice at first, since I was listening to it through my headphones, but once I blasted this thing through my speakers, I could immediately hear--no,FEEL--the change and improvement. You hear little subtle things that you could never pick up on in the original, as there's always a lot going on with each and every one of these songs. It was like listening to the album for the very first time. I can't even begin to express how impressed I am with it in words.

To take full advantage of this album, it is true that you should have an SACD CD player and surround sound so you can hear it in 5.1, and it is AMAZING. You really feel like each song is a living and breathing thing waiting to suck you up without warning. However, if you don't have an SACD CD player, do not fret. This thing still sounds INCREDIBLE without it. If you have a great sound system and some high quality speakers, you will definitely hear the difference. Heck, you can even pop this thing into your discman, then put in the older version, and you will be able to note the difference as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Audio Suicide Note April 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Roar Of Machines" might have been a good name for this as well. Dark, moody, loud, angry and groundbreaking, these five words best sum up "The Downward Spiral" in all it's bloody glory. When you listen to this album, listen to it all the way through, then you can pick out your favorites and hit repeat. Why? It's a concept album. Kinda like a book or a movie, you wanna see, read, hear it all in sequence. To start off this masterpiece is "Mr. Self Destruct". The song is so heavy that you will not believe your ears, it has enough distortion to make Jimi Hendrix turn in his grave. The song then leads directly into "Piggy". The exact opposite of "Mr. Self Destruct", it has an almost jazz feel to it with Trent Reznor whispering "nothing can stop me now". "Heresy" is the closest thing to "Closer" on this disc, so if you bought it for "Closer", chances are you'll like this song too. Especially the "God is dead" chorus. "March Of The Pigs" is one of NIN most solid songs ever, definate perfection. "Closer" is NIN biggest hit and I can see why. This is a classic sing along. "Ruiner" has the greatest chorus I've ever heard in a song. Lyrically it's okay but musically it's perfect. "The Becoming" might be my favorite track here. "Annie, hold a little tighter I just might slip away", that floors me every time. "I Do Not Want This" is the worst song here but NIN worst is still better then other artists best, it's still a good song too. "Big Man With A Gun" is the controversial song here, it's hilarious though, good, but short. "A Warm Place" maybe NIN best instrumental, very heavenly. Read more ›

The best NIN album they ever made, in my opinion. Heavy, creepy music that leaves a void empty feeling in you that keeps making you want to listen over and over again.

It's Trent Reznor being Trent Reznor. If you don't strongly dislike electronic music, or anger, then you'll probably dig this.
