Nine Inch Nails - Broken CD


Pickup available at Appleton Store

Usually ready in 2-4 days

As a placeholder between the full-length Pretty Hate Machine and The Downward SpiralBroken packs a serious punch. Angrier and less poppy than Machine, this EP is full of noisy hooks, if such a thing is possible (check out that guitar riff on the full-throttle "Wish"), and much closer aesthetically to the industrial subgenre that informs Trent Reznor's music. As song titles like "Help Me I Am in Hell" suggest, Broken is a work of undiluted rage, which is, of course, a big part of its appeal.
