Nine Inch Nails - Downward Spiral (1994)
Released March, 1994
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.
