Format: Audio CD
This is not an industrial CD. This is not a rock CD. This is not a pop CD. Those who would hate TDS do so because they listen to it expecting it to sound like something else. Read the reviews, either it's someone complaining that they only liked "Closer" and the rest sucked, or that NIN pales compared to "other" industrial groups.
If ever a CD could be considered an audio suicide note, this may very well be it. The lyrics are not always the most creative, but they will hit you harder than any others. I believe the strongest segment of the CD lies in three songs: Ruiner, The Becoming, and I Do Not Want This. These songs so fiercely cast the world away and place Trent deep in his mind that I found it actually difficult to listen to them at certain times.
Unlike so many other groups of ANY genre, Trent has no problem with using absolutely everything at his disposal to create a sound he wants. He won't limit himself to slow bass grooves, chorused pianos, or a distorted guitar when the mood calls for it. And therein lies the greatest strength of the CD as a whole: not only do the words perfectly capture his emotion, but the sounds as well. The blistering noise while he screams "Don't you tell me how I feel", the quiet vulnerability of the final notes of Hurt (I personally think the Quiet version is better, the final chords here are a little too harsh), every note and every sound is specificall engineered to put across EXACTLY the emotion Trent wants.
I believe "Closer" to be the dividing point of the CD. Those who prefer the more "predictable" songs will most likely listen to the first half only. From "Ruiner" onward, the CD takes on the tone of someone whose mind is falling apart, until the title track.

This Nine Inch Nails Halo (halo 8) starts off with a bang and ends with one....14 songs much UN-like stuff from Pretty Hate Machine, the sound is so awesome....Mr. Self Destruct, Heresy, March of the Pigs, Closer, A Warm Place, the Downward Spiral, Reptile and Hurt are my faves on this one. If ya like originality this is the disc to have....before 1994 I don't recall a band singing songs that contained the almighty BAD WORD and not even have a care.....(Closer comes to mind) I loved every minute of this disc when I first purchased it, still do today, never gets old. March of the Pigs and Closer are the two songs that were made into videos from this album. The video set, CLOSURE halo 12 puts to use my fave NIN instrumental, A Warm Place as an intro and an outro (at the end) before they show all the videos, and here and there they insert portions of songs (mostly found sprinkled throughout Further Down The Spiral, halo 10) in between each video...like the ear ripping guitar buzz from Art of Self Destruction finale. and on closure you'll find the live version videos of Eraser and Hurt, along with Wish from Broken (halo 5) Some albums are destined to be recorded/released...this is the one!

Format: LP Record
I ordered The Downward Spiral from Amazon and was happy at how fast it was shipped, the only problem was that the LP was warped when we received it. A friend of ours has also purchased LPs from Amazon and they were warped as well. We have since ordered two more and are waiting for their arrival to see what condition they will be in. Amazon ships with bubble inserts - when we opened our package there was one on top of the LP and one under it leaving the record at an angle, and I think that is what may be causing the LPs to be mishapen... they should be mailed flat. Perhaps Amazon should rethink their shipping methods when LPs are concerned?

The Downward Spiral still plays well, but a warped record can cause undue stress on the stylus and can effect the audio quality. I love this album, so it's a shame that we can't play it with 100% quality.

This re-release of TDS is like listening to the album again for the first time. The excess of this type of thing might lead you to believe it's just a marketing gimmick, but that is simply not the case here. Of course, if anyone could perfect something that was already perfected, it's Trent Reznor.
First of all, the 13-track bonus disc is reason enough to buy this deluxe edition for any NIN fan since it has three previously unreleased demos. That might sound like peanuts to fans of any other band, but NIN fans know that on the rare occasion you get to hear something you've never heard before from Mr. Reznor, you cherish it. Also contained within are a handful of the best remixes from the singles and the "Further Down The Spiral" versions which are nice to have on one disc. Then you have the Joy Division cover "Dead Souls" and "Burn" from The Crow and the Natural Born Killers soundtracks, respectively. Last but not least is the Soft Cell cover, "Memorabilia" which is an excellent track and it sounds fantastic here.
Getting on to the good stuff, the album itself is a whole new listening experience. Everything feels more alive, more crisp, more precise than it did before. When you've listened to The Downward Spiral as much as the average NIN fan does, you start to pick up on things you never noticed the first 50 times you heard the song. Well that is what the deluxe edition feels like. Hearing new things all over again, letting your senses soak up the layers upon layers of... well, noise. There was a lot of it to begin with, and here it just becomes even more evident, and beautiful. You can never truly appreciate the artestry and brilliance put into the masterpieces which are Nine Inch Nails albums, until you hear them multiple times.
