Nine Inch Nails: The Downward Spiral

Sound — 10
This is one of the best sounding records that I have heard yet. You can tell Trent Renzor put alot of thought and dedication into this albumn. Even if you are not a fan of NIN this albumn still deserves an entire listening through. This is an encrible albumn, and like all thoe others he wrote, performed and recorded the entire thing alone!

Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are all verry good. They go from being to as emotional as the the masterpiece Hurt, to as raw as Closer. It goes on all types of subjects between abandonment of God, to narrating a mental break down in song form. Although some are Cliche like Closer, they are what I think to be verry well thought out lyrics with impressive talent of singing them.

Overall Impression — 10
This is easily in my top 10 albumns. If I lost this album at any time, I would buy it the same day. This is in my oppinon, the best album Trent Renzor has created yet. I strongly urge to individuals who have not purchased this album or even herd of Nine Inch Nails, to buy this.
