I would love to see that song performed live holy fuck that would be hype
It’s just simultaneously the most danceable track and the most heavy breakdown besides Mr. Self destruct
It really does feel like the quintessential NIN tune from that era...
I just gave it an uninterrupted, front to back listen for the 25th anniversary, it's been awhile since I've done that... And holy shit has this album aged perfectly. It's amazing how vital, alive, and relevant it still sounds.Listend to TDS again today. What a ride. What an Album.
Reminisced a bit about a loaning my iPod to a co-worker who's musical taste were Lady Gaga and Christian Folk Rock so she could listen to NIN for the first time.
She wasn't looking forward to it, just wanted to know what I was interested in.
And the answer to both of your questions is Yes.
For me, Hesitation Marks is the only NIN album that I couldn’t get into. Tried and tried but finally accepted my fate and haven’t listened to it again for a couple of years now.
It took me a little while to really find the right mental groove with it, and finding out it was a twenty-years-on sequel to The Downward Spiral helped it slot into place thematically. Various Methods Of Escape, I Would For You and In Two help make the second second half of the album one of my favourite run of NIN songs in the whole catalogue.
If you pm me I can try to (remember to) upload them to dropbox and shoot you a link...Speaking of Hesitation Marks, does anyone know how I can reacquire the Audiophile version? I had it downloaded at release when I ordered the Deluxe CD, as Amazon UK sent me a link to download it from nin.com, but I've accidentally deleted the original download and that email is now long-gone. Plus, I doubt the link would still be active these days anyway.
At the moment, I've tried contacting nin.com support, but they've said they can't help because the original order was from Amazon, even though Amazon never hosted the download themselves in the first place and I had to use nin.com.
