Songs like "Heresy", "Big man with a Gun", "March of the Pigs" and "Reptile" were interesting enough when I first started listening to the album, but now they just sound awful to me.



That being said, "The Becoming", "Eraser", "A Warm Place" and "Ruiner" are still among my faves of his.

I don't know how anything off of this could sound awful.

You hate The Fragile, so I am not sure we necessarily have similar sets of ears.

"Heresy" for me is partially ruined by the odd textures of the synths and the chorus which contains one of my least favorite lyrics by him: "god is dead and no one cares/if there is a hell then i'll see you there"



Did he even bother reading the book?



And as for "Big man with a gun", how can you not understand THAT sounding awful, especially given what you highlighted about The Fragile?

Trent for a long time has been one of my favorite musicians. I just don't share the view that this album is great (let alone of the best albums of all time).

Because I love With Teeth. Seriously, I 5 what I love. I don't give a fuck if it isn't high brow enough for someone else.

First 5 I've ever questioned lol. I just really can't see it. A NIN fan rating this the lowest out of Reznor's discog is definitely quite the rarity, I must say.

Well, a rarity as far as you have come across. My tastes don't fit what the overarching narrative says I have to feel as a person who enjoys NIN. Also keep in mind that I may be younger than you. With Teeth was the first full album I heard by NIN and thus my perception of their music is slanted that way.

Yeah, I'm not trying to say you can't have your opinion, I'm just really surprised is all. I can honestly say I've never come across a NIN fan with that opinion lol.

I am admittedly a strange person. It just goes to show that my perspective sometimes is very different from the commonly accepted view.
