I thought this was around the time NIN started their downward spiral. Prodigy was popular around that time, and this song seemed like they (Reznor) were simply copying that style.
i prefer this:
nine inch nails has never really done it for me.
One of my favorites. That ridiculous drum break....
Now as far as that video, quoth the Raven, “Change the channel.”
I really enjoyed TPD back in the day, but this is inspired:
Ho. Lee. Crap. That is awesome.
i really like the fade out...its like another song attached to the end of it...wish they wouldve did that as a whole song
without you everything falls apart
without you its not as fun to pick up the pieces
hmmmm that a conspiracy theory if I ever heard one , I don't know that is true or false or a red herring. I just never got beyond the emotting about codependency illustrated so clearly and well orchestrated. Your right it's intense but different from "smack my ***** up" , did you mean that style? Trent Reznors songs are the equivalent of taking treatment tapes of an abused addicted trauma survivor and turning them into music that broke the romantic love syndrome into pieces, no more pretty-pretty everything is great and everyone is fine in our brave new world .
If that's a "conspiracy theory" to you, then you've never heard a conspiracy theory! I was a fan of NIN prior to that, but that particular song (the beat, at least) sounded to me like a rip-off of Prodigy, who were the current big thing at the time. NIN lost steam around the same time that Marilyn Manson did. They were both heavy hitters a few years earlier.
o.k that's fine or my name is Jack Ruby. `
The Downward Spiral was released in 1994, way before this.
Perfect Drug is what happens when you let people dictate how long "you must" spend between albums.
Also, MM lost steam around the time they stopped calling themselves 'and the Spooky Kids'.
The Perfect Drug was from the Lost Highway soundtrack, which Trent produced. This was near the beginning of him getting into film but obviously well before he started scoring with Atticus (Nat'l Born Killers was just before).
I personally love this one, and its many remixes. Sure don't think he was cribbing off anyone, least of all Prodigy lol (much as I love them). Listen to 'Experience' ('92) and then 'Fat of the Land' ('96) and I think it's pretty clear who exerted influence on the other's musical change in direction; just one man's opinion, but Prodigy went from stuff like 'Charly' to this obviously aggro style of electronic music that owes a massive debt to Reznor and his popularity in the early 90s.
Anyway, uber fanboi since '89 here so he'll always be unassailable to me... my first show was Feb of '91, last one was 2018, and many in between. I have a very sizeable collection of rarities.
