Dating back to 1994 at the tender age of ten, I walked into the original Tower Records and convinced a sympathetic adult to buy me The Downward Spiral. Neither my parents nor the record store clerks would allow me to purchase anything with such a blatant Parental Guidance sticker containing “Explicit Lyrics”. However, thanks to this “cool” bystander, The Downward Spiral was one of the first albums I owned and I’ve been a NIN fan ever since.
Until last Saturday, I had never had the fortune of seeing Trent Reznor & Co. play live.
The Verdict: Hands down, this was the best set at Outside Lands ‘13.
Enjoy this full set in HD while it lasts.
