As the headline so eloquently puts it, today marks the 20th anniversary of Nine Inch Nails‘ classic album The Downward Spiral. This album is widely considered the group’s finest release, with such incredible tracks as “Closer”, “Hurt”, and “March Of The Pigs”.
It also featured some notable personnel, including Chris Vrenna (Tweaker, composer of American McGee’s Alice), Adrian Belew (King Crimson), Charlie Clouser (composer of Saw), Danny Lohner (Renholdër), and more.
Upon release the album was a critical success, reaching number two on the US Billboard 200 and going on to achieve multiple platinum status. I personally own the deluxe 2xLP vinyl and it’s a joy to put on.
