Nine Inch Nails - Downward Spiral (1994)


$15.00 Released March, 1994

Product Shot 1 The Pros:One of the best albums of the 90s, innovative and edgy. Dark and intense lyrics, very memorable. Album art is iconic, easy to get lost in it as you listen.

The Cons:Some find Reznor's lyrics to be over-the-top and hard to swallow as sincere. Can get a little depressing if you were feeling good before you started listening.

The Downward Spiral is the third album by Nine Inch Nails, released in 1994 on Nothing Records, frontman Trent Reznor's label on Interscope Records. It is "Halo 8" of the official Nine Inch Nails halo releases.
