A Quick Tip by Count_Orlok_22

  • May 12, 2011
One of the all-time great rock groups. Trent Reznor and company prove that music can be produced in a unique and collage-like manner by creating songs using sampling, live performance, pre-recorded elements, and multi-layering. In terms of atmosphere and mood, Nine Inch Nails is the epitome of the Goth Industrial band. Inventive, controversial, and undeniably one of the most influential bands of the past 25 years, NIN has shown that not only are they consistently brilliant, but they have the artistic and commercial staying power to keep evolving musically.

Their early work is legendary and definitely their most experimental.

Underground music audiences warmly received Nine Inch Nails in its early years. Reznor produced several highly influential records in the 1990s that achieved widespread popularity; many Nine Inch Nails songs became radio hits,[3] two Nine Inch Nails recordings won Grammy Awards, and have reached record sales exceeding over 20 million albums worldwide,[4] with 10.5 million sales certified in the United States alone.[5] In 1997, Reznor appeared in Time magazine's list of the year's most influential people, and Spin magazine described him as "the most vital artist in music."[6] In 2004, Rolling Stone placed Nine Inch Nails at 94 on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[7] Despite this acclaim, the band has had several ...
