Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral Hybrid Multi-Channel & Stereo 2SACD
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 201/500!
Originally released in 1994, Trent Reznor created The Downward Spiral as both
concept album and modern day classic, almost sounding like a nihilistic Phil
Spector’s wet dream. This influential ’90s classic is Trent Reznor’s
industrial-cum-tragic opera view of the world and the soul’s sonically detailed
fall from grace. The Downward Spiral delves into despair and anger with hard
guitars and brutal beats.
The opening song frames the album’s entire theme — basically, what makes us
devolve into unfeeling machines. Throughout The Downward Spiral, Trent touches
on things that will destroy us from religion (“Heresy”) to fake friends (“March
Of The Pigs”) to sex (“Reptile” and “Man With A Gun”).
"When I rented the place, I didn't realize it was that house," claimed NIN's Trent Reznor about recording Spiral in the one-time home of Manson-family victim Sharon Tate. Despite "a million electrical disturbances," Reznor made the most successful album of his career. While Spiral has its share of Reznor's trademark industrial corrosiveness, it is balanced by the tentatively hopeful "Hurt" and soundscapes inspired by David Bowie's Low." - www.rollingstone.com
