5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece..., July 2, 2007
This review is from: Pretty Hate Machine (Audio CD)
This one still pleases after what, 10 or so years? "Pretty Hate Machine" was my intro to NIN. Previously I would never have chosen to listen to it, but my then-boyfriend (now husband) was a huge fan.

I'll never forget the first time he played it -- we were in his room at his townhome, hanging out with a bunch of friends. It was on a six-CD changer, and when it started I was just mesmerized. To say that this kind of music had NEVER been in my repertoire before would be a serious understatement! However, as foreign as that industrial tech sound was to my ears, I was hooked.

Fast forward 10 years -- boyfriend is now my husband -- and now we have 3 kids; still, we bring out this CD a LOT (well, when the kids are in bed, LOL). It is just as good now as it was back then. Never tire of it.

There are many NIN songs that I love, but what stands out about "Pretty Hate Machine" is the fact that every song on there hits the ball out of the park. That is sooooo rare for any album -- there are always those "quick, skip to the next track" songs on most albums.

Love Trent, Love NIN. Love "Pretty Hate Machine". Coming from a person who usually thinks industrial-tech music is irritating as hell, this is a big compliment!

OH NO -- please don't say 20 years! ACK!! Yeah, we had some young friends refer to NIN as "oldies" one time -- and that was in 2001, I think, LOL. My husband and I were just stunned -- we knew we were getting old then!
