NIИ (The Downward Spiral - Deluxe Edition) 1994




Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
The Downward Spiral
at #200


This is one of the few occasions where I have double dipped on an album. Originally I had the first release of The Downward Spiral back in '94. The album is so perfect and groundbreaking that it was one of my favorites for many many years. Still is. So when the opportunity to pick up the Deluxe Edition came about 10 years after the fact to celebrate it's 10 year anniversary, it was a no brainer.

I know that if they decide to release a 20 year Deluxe Edition, I will gladly pick it up. The bonus tracks, B-Sides and Remixes of the current Deluxe Edition actually adds to the overall enjoyment of the original Downward Spiral to my ears.

Fave Songs: Piggy, March Of The Pigs, Closer, Eraser, Reptile and Hurt

I hold this one very high and that is the main reason why Pretty Hate Machine gets a lower rating in my eyes. Is it fair to compare the two? Probably not, as they are both completely different albums in execution and style. But when both come from Trent Reznor, comparisons are inevitable.

As for Rolling Stones placement of the album, once again they get it totally wrong. The more I look at their 500 Greatest Album of All Time, the more convince I am that they don't know much of anything. I easily have this album in the Top 20. It's revolutionary and one for the ages.
