Yeah, I agree! Trent is a master of delivering vocals that are full of intensity and real emotion. Nobody else could pull off something like Happiness in Slavery or The Great Below the way he does.
Totally agree.

Have you seen "And All that could have been" live DVD? cant have enough of this dvd...such a great performances!

Yeah, it's an incredible performance! NIN are great at putting on a show that's just as great to watch as it is to listen to do. Trent's a visionary. He should direct films.

Give him time, give him time..i´m sure directing films is something that has is mind on..

So how many times did you see NIN live? i´ve only got the chance to see them 3 times, and the last one in 2013 was absolutely amazing!!

I've seen them only once, on the Twenty Thirteen Tour (I'm only eighteen and I got into their music when I was fifteen. Give me time :P). It was one of the finest shows I've ever seen. Highlights included Me, I'm Not (which is a song I'd never really appreciated up to that point), the visual portion of The Great Destroyer, Gave Up and of course Hurt.

I saw NIN last year when they were co-headlining with Queens of the Stone Age. Brilliant show and a special one too, considering I got to see two of my favourite bands on the same night! The setlist was really great, hearing Burn live was awesome, and the reworked version of Sanctified was so groovy!

NIN came on first, and they opened with A Warm Place over the speakers, then kicked the show off with an amazing performance of Somewhat Damaged.

My favourites change a lot too... It's amazing how a band can stay this good throughout an entire career. Kinda like Blur!

Holly fuck another tough decision man....i guess this could be mine:

PHM: Terrible Lie
Broken: Wish
The Downward Spiral: Reptile
The Fragile: Somewhat Damaged/Where is Everybody
With Teeth: Love Is Not Enough
Year Zero: In This Twilight
Ghosts: Here i cant choose as i see this record as an evolution of 1 gigantic song
The Slip: Letting You
Hesitation Mark: All Time low or Disappointed


But its very difficult to choose only 1 song....

About Somewhat Damaged that i´ve only seen this live 1 time, heres a clip of the best performance i´ve ever seen of this:

Wow, what a great performance! Loved the shots of the drummer giving it his all :lol: Great arrangement of the song too, loved the subtle differences from the original.

Do you guys like Hesitation Marks as much as I do? Cause I was amazed to see that it got lukewarm reviews in some sites. I mean, it's clearly not a classic but there are some great songs there and it works perfectly fine as an album.
