Always been a nine inch nails fan.

This album is no exception.

Definitely a great album especially from a long time mac Advocate.

I've been a NIN fan ever since I heard PHM in 1992. This new album is awesome. It sounds like NIN, yet it sounds like he's trying some new sound with it - and I'm diggin' it.
Get this. I paid slightly over $10 @ Best Buy for the dual-disc. Admittedly, my Powerbook doesn't like the CD side. It wouldn't load. It did load the DVD side. Hopefully, the brand new G5 (today) will read (and rip) the CD side correctly.

eah, I got it today too, and I had never really been a fan either but decided to listen to the iTunes previews and loved the sound, and i bought 'em. I must say I am now amazed...

what does the dual disk have special, is it the dvd-quality audio like some other releases? I had ordered the Downward Spiral redux and it ripped fine, hmm... dual disk vs cd.... its a nice bonus that its only $9.99 this time (vs The Fragile dual CD)!

Byers beware. DualDisc does not conform to "RedBook" standard. Many audio hardware manufacturers have issued warnings about using DD in their equipment. If I was you id rather get separate CD+DVD package.

Dual disc (CD side) works on 2 of the 3 Macs I tried it on + my portable CD player, and it ripped fine in iTunes.

For those of you that have watched the video included on the DD, is it all interlaced, and totally crappy looking? I'm assuming this is a stylistic choice by NIN and not a defective DD, but I wanna ask just to make sure. ;)

yes that is how its is supposed to look, i wasnt sure at first either, but i believe it is intended to look that way, it goes with the feel of the album certainly

Just got this from iTMS. I used to love NIN, but kind of lost interest after Downward Spiral. I like the new single, had a bit of fun with GarageBand (thanks Trent!), and am hoping for a return to form.

Big fan of NIN too. Go watch them live, they're amazing. I just bought the Dual-Disc album too. Haven't played it at home yet but the album sounds good so far.

I have been a NIN fan since the Pretty Hate Machine days, and I have never EVER been disappointed in the least about any LP release. Trent just can't screw up. I am constantly amazed.

The thing I love so much is that each major release is much different from the next, but still very "nine inch nails". With Teeth is no exception. A brilliant record.

I especially love "Sunspots" and "Right Where it Belongs", but it's all good, really.

Am I the only one who's disappointed with the album?

I've had a promo copy for a couple of weeks, although it's very slowly growing on me I still find it quite boring.
There's nothing on it that grabs you like anything off Pretty Hate Machine did.

They're just an average rock band with too much emphasis on guitars now.
Seeing some studio photos of Trent surrounded by huge modular analogue synths made me hopeful this album would be a mix between PHM, Broken and Still.
But no, it sounds like the tracks that didn't make The Fragile. I can't believe it's 5 years work!

Live wise nothing will compare to seeing them in a small club in Birmingham (UK) in 1989 or 1990 (I can't remember it's too long ago).
I think they've had their day...

Nope I was disappointed too. I heard the about the single, downloaded the video and was pretty excited. I liked all the previous non-remix CDs (PHM, DS, and fragile) and I consider the downward spiral one of my top 10 favorite CDs of all time. The single sounded like a throw back to PHM in style, just a little crunchier, and I liked it. I listened to all the previews on iTunes Tuesday and couldn't find anything else that interested me so I spent my $.99 for the single and that was it.

Good to know, actually. Well, my Powerbook did not like it at all. I tried it multiple times.
My G5 didn't like it the first time, but the second time it did. I was finally able to rip the tracks.
I knew the tray loader on the PM would work because I let my friend rip it from his HP laptop (also a tray loader).

well actually the album only took a few months, the rest of those five years were trent coming to terms with his addictions. and in my opnion this sounds nothing like the fragile, this is much more stright forward, has the live drums, and has a simpiler feel to it than fragile

Premature to say I'm disappointed. I listened to it once this morning in my office through the Altec Lansing InMotion system, and it was not nearly loud enough :rolleyes: to properly judge. Still, the first listen didn't blow me away like the first time I heard PHM, but that's a pretty tough standard for anything to live up to.

I'll crank it up tonight when I get home. ;)
