I GOT IT TODAY :D
i know you guys most likely already have it, but i got With Teeth today, and im happy, and i LOVE it :D
and im even more sad that nz STILL isnt on the tour list :(
if its not on soon, i think im going to cry, then move someplace good bands go to ...

>>By nite nite



Well I'm glad you like the album :) I liked it when I first heard it, and trust me - it keeps growing on you. Surprisingly it's more like Pretty Hate Machine than any of the albums. Just... better than PHM heh.

Anyway, I read an interview with him where he said the reason it took so long was that after The Fragile he got addicted to every drug and just lost the will to work or anything. And apparently he stayed like that for a few years, on - um - a downward spiral I guess, until his best friend got shot and killed by a gang or something, and that kind of woke him up. So he checked himself into a rehab clinic and when he came out he started work on With Teeth. Apparently he doesn't do any drugs or alcohol now.

Haha, that's a bit late on in life for him to start getting in to drugs. Midlife crisis got Mr. Reznor on a crack binge.

Where did you read that? I haven't heard about any of that stuff before, sounds a little dubious if you ask me.

>>By Stinkfist



Rock Sound. Well it was an interview, so unless they make up their interviews I'd assume it's true... unless Reznor's like his idol Bowie and likes to lie in interviews. He just kept it quiet 'til now. Who wouldn't?

And he did drugs before, it's just between the last two albums he was really *really* an addict.

>>By Flagg



Who wouldn't? Most popular artists these days get off on causing trouble for themselves. Example, you can't make it in the heavy metal word these days unless you've spent at least a month in rehab for something. Spose you can give Trent credit for that.

My point exactly. A bit late on for the whole drugs thing. Anyway, this is getting a little too personal and fan-girlie for my liking, lets dumb it down a little.

who finks Wiv teef is lyk totaly wkd!!! all da songz r gr8 n stuf!!!

>>By Stinkfist



>A bit late on for the whole drugs thing.

I still don't understand - he's done drugs all his life, until now.

But yeah you're right:

wid teef KIKS HARDCORE AAASSSSSSSSS MAN LOL THAT ALBUM ROXXXXXXXXX, i herd it nd i wz like wat da fwuck dis album kiks ASSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

>>By Flagg



lol, i read something about that, he wasnt sure if he would be able to rite song without drugs or drink, but he can (yay)
i didnt know hw was in rehab tho ...

sorry for going back, but i had something to say :D

>>By nite nite



Heh well, it's not really going back as there's not much more to say on the subject of 'wiv teef kix ass'.

Personally I'm very glad he's off drugs now, as it means he'll live longer :) :) :)

>>By Flagg



YAY!!!!
Trent must live for MUCH longer ... hes 2 hot to die ...

>>By nite nite



I bought my copy of 'With Teeth' two days ago.

I'm yet to make a fair judgement about it...but I think 'Only' should have been the first single.

>>By CHARLOS



YAY!!!!
Trent must live for MUCH longer ... hes 2 hot to die ...

>>By nite nite (Saturday, 7 May 2005 05:00)


...more like he's to talented to die...

>>By RaNcId_StAr



Nah, I reckon Only will be the next single, but The Hand That Feeds is the perfect first single. Along with Closer, Into The Void and Terrible Lie it's the catchiest NIN song around.

Besides, it's obvious the best song on With Teeth is Every Day Is Exactly The Same. Well, that or You Know What You Are.

>>By Stinkfist



Nah, the best is Right Where It Belongs. Every Day... is second best. With Teeth third. Then the line begins to blur. As in, I'm not sure. But hey, maybe it is The Line Begins to Blur...

I'll stop my streams of consciousness now.

>>By Flagg



RaNcId_StAr that can work 2, but he is hot, even if he is almost 2 times my age ...

>>By nite nite



And he has muscles now!!

>>By Flagg



well yes, he is hot :-) but i like to focus more on the talent

>>By RaNcId_StAr



Got my tickets.

:) :) :) :) :) :) :)

13th of July.

>>By Flagg



And now it's the 14th.

Good god, that was mindblowing/amazing/life-changing/reznoriffic/really really really really good. Pick one.

>>By Flagg



I like reznoriffic. Can I have that please?

No fair, he was only above average to pretty good in April :-(

What songs off With Teeth did he do?

>>By Stinkfist



Let me think... The Hand That Feeds of course, With Teeth (a-witha-teetha) You Know What You Are?, The Collector and The Line Begins To Blur. I think that's it. It's a shame they didn't play Right Where It Belongs but ah well, it was good enough for me not to mind.

And I can't even imagine a NIN concert to be above average to pretty good. You must have been having a bad day or something.

>>By Flagg



Pretty much exactly the same as at mine then, apart from The Collector. I hadn't heard Right Where It Belongs before the show (obviously), but I sucked that they didn't do either of my three favorite NIN songs, Something I Can Never Have, Reptile and The Great Below......

......which is part of the reason why they were only pretty good and not very good. That along with the fact that Trent didn't really seem to get into any of the songs, apart from March of the Pigs (but you'd have to be carved from wood to not get into that song). Also, I'd seen three really, really great shows prior to NIN; 36 Crazyfists, Red Hot Chilis, and Porcupine Tree, so they had a lot to live up to.

But it probably had something to do with Jeordie White. He's like my concert jinx or something. Every show he's been involved with has been less than uncrappy. The APC show I saw was boring (and as a certified Maynard-worshipper, I don't say that lightly) and the Marilyn Manson one was just retarded, although I hate them anyway. And now NIN. I hate him so much, I spit on him.

>>By Stinkfist



Well Jeordie White was owning hard when I saw them, along with the rest of the band. And there were favourite songs of mine that they didn't play, but I wasn't disappointed because I like so many of their songs.

I think it really comes down to how much you like the band. NIN are my second or third favourite band. The Chillis were great when I saw them, but I like NIN alot more than I like the Chillis, so they can't stand up.

>>By Flagg



I didn't mean Jeordie was playing bad (which he wasn't, and rarely does), it's just...jinxus mucho.

NIN are definitely in my top 5 favorite bands, but JUST seeing one of my favorite bands doesn't do it for me any more, I think it's cos I've been to so many shows and been impressed by bands I don't usually like. It was just an anti-climax, you know :-\

Oh yeah, some Trent news, I've heard through the grape vine that Mr. Reznor is (or might be) helping out on Zack De La Rocha's upcoming solo album, which means he'll be working with DJ Shadow and El-P too. It's like a fuckin cross-genre dream team!

>>By Stinkfist



Sounds good.

I heard Trent was with Zack de la Rocher when he first heard Johnny Cash's version of Hurt, and it made Zack de la Rocher cry. Apparently.

>>By Flagg



Have you guys seen the "Only" video already? I did today, it's kind of interesting, but i expected more, this was one of my favourite songs...

>>By Eli_Molko



I liked it; I have one of those pin sculpture things, now imagine I saw Trent's face in it...

The video was directed by David Fincher apparently, who made Seven and Fight Club.

>>By Flagg



really? i didn't know he was the director!!!
so, this was a pin sculpture thingy....i was wondering what it was and what it was for....ahaha, if i had one of those, i was probably going to look for Trent's face from now on! Definitely:)

>>By Eli_Molko



ok, great album and ...stuff but ...WHERE'S THE LYRICS?

>>By thom



Not with the CD, clearly.

Doesn't bother me much, I rarely read lyrics booklets, mainly because most albums don't have them nowadays. I think it's like un-trendy or something to print the lyrics now, but even so, the lyrics are my least favorite part of NIN, so big whoopdeedoo. Awithaa teethaa and whatnot.

>>By Stinkfist



'Awithaa teethaa' is one of the greatest lines in any song ever written by anyone, anywhere, ever.

Apparently they were going for some kind of minimalist look. But according to Meathead, they're just poor and the album had a tight budget. So I s'pose you can just decide for yourself. What do YOU want to believe...??
