    The original 1994 release has an SRC matrix. It was on Interscope/Atlantic and TVT since Atlantic distributed and manufactured Interscope until around 1996-1997.

      Trent's best album by a country mile. Outstanding journey into human frailty, self loathing, pain, hate and triumph perfectly encapsulated. Was groundbreaking and still remains a tour de force musically regardless of what genre ppl choose to hate this album upon. Essential.

        This album is what started my obsession with music. I was so blown away, that I rushed to the store to buy all of the singles, albums and remix albums. It took me a while to adjust to other types of music, because the world of NIN is hard to leave once imprisoned inside of it. Most of the other music of the time seemed uninteresting, since this was very exotic and dense. This started my craze of audio production, which took me to college and from there to two degrees. This is required listening in the field of audio producers. It is considered one of the best engineered albums of all time, right next to Sgt Peppers and Dark Side of the Moon. A great collection of songs. Second only to The Fragile. 5/5
