Jesus, really?

Not even on Live: With Teeth or Performance 2007 or anything? That's surprising. I thought that was one of the singles from Awithuh Teethuh. Maybe not, but I remember hearing it on the radio at least a couple times.

Nope, never before, although according to NinWiki it was performed at some rehearsals. NinWiki is your friend. I'm constantly checking things on there because I'm a gigantic sperg when it comes to setlists for whatever reason.

Goddamn I would love to see All The Love In The World live. Then again I haven't even seen NIN live yet, so maybe I'll start with that first.

I don't remember which NIN thread it was, if it was the last one or the one before that, but does anybody have the McDonald's Fragile tracklist saved? I remember it started with Somewhat Hamaged.

If anyone finds it and posts it, it's going straight to the OP.

That was such good times that I just had to dig it up. It was in the Trent's drunk and, right now, he's so in love with you.. thread from 2010.

And here's the page where the NinDonalds thing happened

Same thread also brought us the baby versions of songs which are still the best things these threads have ever produced

edit: I also really liked the time the thread briefly turned into a 1990s usenet thread

loving hell they're doing Helsinki

It seems the tickets for the EU shows will be floating around the 40 - 50 € price point (£30 - £35 in the UK, 46 € for the show in Italy, which are the only EU shows where tickets are already available). I wonder how much they'll be scaling down on the production compared to the US tour, and whether all eight of the band members are coming to Europe or not.

edit: Well, OK, the tickets for the show in Helsinki are 62,5 €. I'm 100% fine with this, whatever, just let me see this goddamn loving band live

Just bought the ticket to the Helsinki show, first time going to a gig all alone but I'm pretty sure it will be amazing.

I'm a retard and somehow managed to lose my card which means I can't buy a ticket right now Here's hoping the GA tickets won't get all sold before I get my new card.

I currently don't know if any of my friends are cool enough to come to a NIN concert, but it seems like there'll be a couple of people in this thread coming to the Helsinki show so maybe we'll do a small goon meet or something and have a ridiculously expensive beer or two?

I dunno, 60 € is pretty much what I'd expect to pay for NIN here in Finland. Maybe someone here remembers how much they paid when NIN last did a European tour of their own?

loving hell that owned. Trent and the band are just in amazing shape, and I think we got the better setlist compared to the first show in Riga (Reptile instead of The Frail/The Wretched, Sanctified instead of Find My Way, and especially loving Hand Covers Bruise, Beside You In Time AND Somewhat Damaged instead of Eraser). I wouldn't have minded the other setlist, mind you, but I'm personally really happy with what we got to hear. Also, the hall was just around 4/5 full, but the atmosphere was fantastic and the crowd went loving wild at the appropriate spots. Great light show and some cool projections as well, looked like a mix of the 2013 Festival and Tension tour setups. Awesome poo poo!

Cold Cave was pretty fun as well. I'm not a huge fan of the singer's voice, but they had some great songs and he put in a fantastic performance otherwise.

Spoilered some stuff if someone here is going on this tour and doesn't want to know anything beforehand

Woah, there's some interesting variation going on in the setlists on this tour, it looks like!

I liked Cold Cave but in retrospect it's probably not the best possible kind of act to open for NIN, especially on a huge arena stage. The singer dude certainly had charisma, but they just totally failed to fill the place with either their stage presence or their music. Think it'd work better in a tiny club.

Is there a reason for them not playing Happiness In Slavery anymore? I mean that song owns, easily my favorite off Broken.

I'll probably add it to the OP.

Are they just trying to disown that song? It's been a year since Hesitation Marks came out, they've played tons of shows since then and they've played pretty much every song from Hesitation Marks live except that one. I can't imagine it's because it's hard to play because it seems like it'd be easier to do live than some of the songs they've been doing live for the past year.

It'd probably be jarring as gently caress to hear that in one of their live sets, though.

quote:

"There were a few moments of this album where I expected eyebrows to raise," Reznor says. "But that actually was not one of them. To me, 'Everything' is a descendant of Fear and Joy Division and New Order. Somehow, that song has become representative of this as my 'happy album,' although I don't hear it as such. It's certainly not meant to make you feel like, 'Look at how great everything is!' But it seems to be the shocking moment of the record. We've not played it onstage, only in rehearsals. It's become an irritant to me."[4]

For me, The Fragile is one of those cases where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. There aren't even all that many songs I really love compared to, well, pretty much any other NIN album, but as a whole it's still probably my favorite out of them all. It's just such a wonderfully executed concept.

Rageaholic Monkey posted:

Oh so it's not even Trent's vocals?

I didn't feel like those vocals really added much of anything to the song and I would probably never listen to that version again over the original.

Yeah. NinWiki has this to say on the track:

NinWiki posted:

This is the original version of the song, but features new vocals and lyrics by Stella Katsoudas (aka Stella Soleil), the lead singer and main force behind Sister Soleil, added on top. The song was put together in 1999 for the soundtrack to the film Stigmata but was not included, allegedly due to a quarrel between Reznor and Billy Corgan, who produced the soundtrack. Previously, the song had never been officially released, although Katsoudas has used it in some ballet performances, causing the track to subsequently surface on torrent websites. More recently, the track has been uploaded to remix.nin.com by Reznor and is available for download. Its title means "touching him" in Latin.

Like you said, I don't think the vocals really add all that much to the song, either, but I like that version too and listen to it once in a while when I happen to remember it exists. Like most remixes then, I guess. It definitely wouldn't work on TDS, though.

Can anyone fill me in on why Trent seems to talk about pigs and troughs starting with Broken, TDS and continuing on into The Slip? Does it have something to do with the Tate mansion that he used to record in?

It is because pigs are really cool animals that are smart and cute.

I agree, i enjoy the Fragile though as a double album, its a bit weak in spots.
I definitely listen to 'Left' more than 'Right'.

Then again, Starfuckers isn't one of my favorite songs.
I like Day The World Went Away, We're in This Together, The Fragile, The Wretched, Lamir, and The Great Below all more than Starfuckers.

That's just me though.

Nah man it's not just you, no one likes Starfuckers

My problem with Welcome Oblivion is that soundwise it's ultimately kind of samey and towards the end the album just completely fizzles out. I literally can't remember a single thing that happens on that album after We Fade Away, which would've been a really good closer.

I'm happy I got the normal CD album that doesn't have the bonus tracks, I probably wouldn't like the album nearly as much as I do if it had even more stuff on it. It's already too long as-is.

Lurked over at EchoingTheSound to see if I could get a summary of the BBC interview, and the main points of importance are:

  • concert at the Royal Albert Hall on June 24th
  • the final EP in the trilogy will be out before "the shows" (so currently, June 24th at the latest, but we'll see what other dates are announced)
  • This EP is taking slightly longer because they're working hard on making it sound unpredictable

(for reference, http://www.echoingthesound.org/comm...gy-s-End/page18 )

Nice, thanks for the summary

Trent said he got tired of Everything, something to the effect of "it's become an irritant to me", which is why they ended up not playing it.
