    I can't stream that EP where I am >_<

    Definitely check out ThisOneIsOnUs' NIN-related releases too. The Lights In The Sky shows were nothing short of spectacular.

    This album is just fucking amazing.

    Edit: Like shitting bricks amazing. Even when my musical tolerance is at its lowest I find it pretty fucking awesome. Then when I have a perfect zen I feel like it's the best goddamn thing I've ever heard.

    I'm trying to force myself to NOT listen to this album. It's so hard.

    In Two + While I'm Still Here + Black Noise sends me over the edge.

    Okay, so I'm on my second listen through of the album right now, and as much as I hate to say it, I don't feel it's as cohesive of an album as I would like it to be. I really do like it, and there are quite a few gems on there, but I just don't like it as much as Year Zero or The Slip. I'll give it a solid 7.5/10.

    Among the full-lengths, I'd put "Hesitation Marks" somewhere right below my top two, "Year Zero" and "The Downward Spiral". It's definitely on par with "The Slip" to me.

    I definitely think that's it's a cohesive and consistent collection of songs, both sonically and lyrically, but I haven't decided on how strong I think the material is. :)

    EDIT: so here's my ranking right now:

    1. "Year Zero"
    2. "The Downward Spiral"
    3. "Hesitation Marks"
    4. "The Slip"
    5. "With Teeth"
    6. "The Fragile"
    7. "Pretty Hate Machine"
    8. "Ghosts I-IV"

    As far as my favorite tracks are on this album, I really like Find My Way, All Time Low, and In Two.

    The biggest problem I have with this album is the lyrics. Other than that, it's awesome.

    It's NIN. The lyrics have always been an issue. Come now, you're really expecting lyrical genius from "I wear this crown of shit"?

    Pretty Hate Machine
    Ghosts

    And on that note, how dare you all leave out Broken.

    Anthony's rating is sometimes a bit "harsh" but what do you think of his 6/10 rating for Hesitation Marks?

    I don't. I haven't even bothered watching the video because I usually don't care about what other people think.
