Comments: Contains nine of the halo remixes. made in germany under nothing records. These tracks are really not anything you can't find easily, but I've heard that it's been up for sale for $25 or so. It's a promotional release, so you can value it with that in mind.

Comments: Yes, another Woodstock boot... This CD is in some respects better than, and in some respects worse than When The Whip Comes Down. First of all, It starts with Larry "Bud" Melman introducing the group, then fades up in the middle of Pinion. All of "March Of The Pigs" is present. "Closer" doesn't have the screwups in the end of it that When The Whip Comes Down has. "Reptile" fades up while the last notes are being played "Closer". All of "Reptile" is also present. Throughout the CD, there are these annoying pops. There is a fairly loud pop/click sound, the sound is silent, then the sound builds back up to full volume. (all in about 1/2 second or less.) It gets to be really annoyoing after a while. I have no clue as to what it's from. Here are the times for the pops: Track 1 (Terrible Lie) 4:01, 4:46, 6:19, Track 2 (Sin) 1:30, Track 4 (Something I Can Never Have) 3:06, Track 6 (Reptile) 0:47. Here is the text blurb in the booklet -- copied verbatim: Few artists of 1990's have caused as munch of a commotion as Trent Reznor, the fury-filled mastermind behind Nine Inch Nails. Dipping into a cauldron of industrial strength technorock laced with near lethal doses of metallic punk, Reznor wages full frontal sonic assaults drawn from the darkest recesses of the human psyche. As the saying goes: is forewarned "munch", "is forewarned"? Huh? All in all, it is a decent boot. Unless you want the intro, and all of "Reptile", don't bother. Just get When The Whip Comes Down. From ANON.

Nine Inch Nails: Rusty Nails
Format: CD
Catalog: RN01
Produced: ?
Date: 1988-1994
Cover:
Front: It seems to depict a dark swirl with some humanoid shapes-one of many covers.
Booklet: The booklet is only the cover with a solid black reverse. Underneath the CD is (again) the same picture as the front and back covers.
Back: The back is the same as the front cover, except that it has the titles in a standard typewriter typeface. Some of the columns were obviously too narrow as they aren't properly lined lined up in some cases. There is also no punctuation in the titles. CD: The CD has no design on it and is a blank silver. The only things of note are the copyright notices around the bottom, the title across the top, and RN01 at the bottom.

Quality: Sup-
Comments: This recording is quite unique. It is a 64 minute long continuous megamix of good NIN songs. The mixing is done quite well, and in some cases, yields really cool sounding melodys. "All the Pigs, All Lined Up" with the hi hat from "Memorabilia" comes to mind. That one just sounds so cool. It is not without its faults though... "Heresy" ends, then "Head Like A Hole" starts, with a gap of silence. In "Closer To God" (Track 11), there is an editing glitch, and the volume fluctuates because of it. (a part of the song repeats, then it skips for ward. The same thing happens again in "Sin" (Track 16). Most of the mixes are quite impressive, and some are obvious. Not 'obvious' in the sense of "It is obvious that that two songs are mixed together", 'obvious' in the sense that if I were to make a continuous mix, I'd combine the songs. "Twist" to "Ringfinger" and "Kinda I Want To" (From Pretty Hate Machine) to "Down In It" come to mind. All in all, it is a very good cd, as all songs were mixed from other CDs. Highly recommended if you want to run a NIN Party that will only last about an hour. From ANON. I have a Marilyn Manson White Trash Vol.II: 1991 Lunchbox Demos CD that actually has Rusty Nails recorded on it. The CD has all the Marilyn Manson artwork and such, but the music is NIN. I'll guess that it is very rare just because it was a screw-up. From LANCE The quality sounds like a real official release it is so good. There are 2 exceptions when the sound fades out. He repeats a line once too. The typing on the box is real bad. How can you mispell heresy? They combined alot of songs like heresy and heresy blind. All of the songs were shortened so much that you miss alot of it. Underneath the Skin had 5 minutes cut out. Happiness in Slavery surprisingly had no words. It is good with all the slightly different versions and combined songs. Recommended. From DANS. Here's what the major faults on the recording are: 11-Closer To God: volume fluctuates at one point and skips back on itself very slightly. 14-Kinda I Want To: an editing problem, Trent sings "I can't shake this feeli-"... "I ca-"... before continuing as usual with "there's a devil..." but the beat stays intact. 16-Sin: Changes from stereo to mono. From ANDREW.

Comments: How does it compare to Rusty Nails I? 1.) The tracks blend much better than Rusty Nails 1. It seems almost professional the way Something Blue goes to the Ruiner remix, and the Memorabilia background stays with Wish for its first 40 seconds and is incredible.
2.) It contains more unreleased tracks They are not truly* unreleased, because they came from other imports. Then again, having it contain such a large number of otherwise unreleased tracks makes this seem like a "Best of NIN Imports" album.
3.) There are no annoying recording errors anywhere -- unlike Rusty Nails I. As I said before, this sounds so professional that Trent himself may have done it! Comments from JASON. In Reptile, there's a bit of an oddity in that the part with "she spreads herself wide open to let the insects in" is repeated, but the rest is just like the normal version. Comments from USER. Heresy / Blind starts as halo 8 Heresy and mixes into blind halfway through. When Head like a Hole mixes into Clay, it loses a load of treble and sounds a bit crap really. Something Blue mixes well into Ruiner because the Hitman made Something Blue because (I'm guessing) he couldn't mix the two Clouser remixes together without it. Basically, Something Blue is contrived to mix the two. I concede that Memorobilia / Wish is impressive, although it sounds a bit awkward. Although the only recording mistake is the repetition of "she spreads herself...", the mixes between tracks are weak. As an example, March of the Fuckheads actually finishes before HiS starts, and the same happens between Wish and Something I Can Never Have. I prefer the first CD to this. From ANDREW

Quality: A(void)
Comments: Well, I just made the mistake of wasting $25 on a NIN bootleg. I like listening even to the lowest-quality live bootlegs, so it's not often that I would consider buying a NIN cd to be a waste of money, but for RN3, I'll make an exception. After the surprisingly high quality of Rusty Nails 1 and 2 (*especially of Rusty Nails 2), I didn't think twice about it. Now I'm wishing for some form of time travel. Not only does this have a horrible tracklisting in regards to the songs that were picked, the cool transitions between them that are the trademark of Rusty Nails 1 and 2 are nonexistant; in many places the transitions are awkward and amatuerish, and in other places they do not exist at all (between two songs has been inserted what sounds like a clip from an S&M porno flick.) Others sound like they were intended to be innovative, but just do not fit in either rhythmically or tonally. The cheesiness of this disc is almost beyond belief. The first track, which is the music played during the introductory "pick a skill-level and episode" Quake map, has been augmented with a lot of whining, screaming, and general silliness. If it was intended to produce some sort of emotional response, it didn't work. I'm not sure where the voices on this track came from; they might have been recorded exclusively for this disc, although if I were responsible for it, I sure wouldn't want my voice on it. What's probably the stupidest thing about this disc is that it is all one track*. Yes, there are 18 songs on the disc, but the disc hasn't even been tracked to divide them up. Want to listen to something halfway through the disc? Get ready to fast-forward. The money you would spend purchasing this disc would better be used for more worthwhile purposes, such as buying sunhats for your racehorses, a bottle of "industrial-strength" oven cleaner, or a solar-powered flashlight. This is JMHO, of course; it's your money, and I welcome any and all opposing viewpoints. I'll keep the disc because I'm a collector, but I forsee it gathering a lot of dust. Forewarned is forearmed.

Comments: Tracks 1-10 live at Tipina's in New Orlean's, LA on May 11, 1991, Tracks 11-12 live at Lollapolooza in Irvine, CA on October 16, 1991 Tracks 13-15 live in Holland on the Guns And Roses Tour September 1, 1991 This is the same show as Slaves with some extra miscellaneous tracks thrown onto it. It has three sections on it. Tracks 1-10 are the same as on Slaves, sans one track. Tracks 11 and 12 are recorded from Lollapalooza in '91. They are decent recordings if you ignore all the volume fluctuations in track 11, which you can't because they happen continually throughout the track. It gets exceedingly annoying. Tracks 14 and 15 are from the same recording as the first 4 tracks of Solid Gold Hell, but are of much worse mix quality. The tracks fade in and out badly, instead of Solid Gold Hell's really nice cuts. Overall, It's not worth any price for it. Even with the Lollapaloza tracks. From ANON.

Comments: Decent concert recording from the Self Destruct 94 tour. Audience noise is audible but doesn't get annoying, and performance is good. This concert was so long, some stuff had to be edited out. They cut out Head Like a Hole at the end of Down In It, and only the first two verses of Suck were there. At least they made it sound like it really was the end of the concert at the second verse of Suck and not something lame like a sudden end or fade-out. There is a sound error, more of an error at recording time, where the stereo image shifts left and right every once in a while. From ANON.

Quality: Ex
Comments: This is a very nice live bootleg; it's not as high-quality as, say, Children of the Night, but it's a lot of fun to listen to, especially given Trent's trademark colorful comments throughout the show. Given the fact that it is soundboard-quality, and that Trent had a pretty colorful show, you can't go wrong. This is an excellent live bootleg, so allow me to indulge with a description of the tracks: (1) Pinion / Terrible Lie. This is pretty much the standard live version of Terrible Lie, introduced by about forty-five seconds of Pinion (as the the title suggests!) Just as he does on Children of the Night, Trent replaces "I'm alone alone in a world you must despise" with "I'm all alone in this fucking world you must despise." (2) Sin The introduction to this song is different than what appears on Pretty Hate Machine; instead of the traditional intro, material from "Sin (Dub)" (on Halo Four) is used instead. There are some audio problems during this song; the mikes cut out, and you can hear Trent laugh in what I assume to be a mixture of amusement and disgust. (3) March of the Pigs Trent begins this song by yelling "Hey .. fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, pricks! Oink, oink!" The rest of this is pretty much the standard live March of the Pigs, which is actually a mixture of the original song and the extended "All the Pigs, All Lined Up" from the MOTP single. Of note: he replaces "Now they can all sleep soundly, and everything is all right" with "Now they can all sleep soundly, and all you fuckheads are all right." (4) Something I Can Never Have Pretty much standard fare. This sounds like most every live performance of this song, which in turn sounds like the version on PHM. Trent is a bit out of breath; MOTP wore him out. (5) Closer This song begins with a slightly different intro; beyond that, it's very similar to the version on TDS. (6) Reptile Again, very similar to the original song on TDS. (7) Wish Trent opens this by saying to the audience "You ready? .. Yeeaahhhhhh." Beyond that, there's nothing really of note in this performance that differs from the original version on Broken. (8) Suck This sounds a lot like the live version on Demos and Remixes (you would it expect it to, right?) Here, they cut the vocals out during the chorus to allow the audience to yell "Suck!! Suck!! Suck!!" Because this is a true soundboard recording, it's tough to tell how enthusiastic the audience response was. In a display of blasphemy, Trent replaces the phrase "I'm Jesus Christ on ecstasy" with "I'm Jesus Fuck on ecstasy." This is followed by an odd segue into the Fixed remix of Last (Throw This Away), with Trent singing "I am so dirty.. on the fucking inside .." Apart from this, this version of the song sounds very, very similar to the D & R version. (9) The Only Time Pretty much standard fare; there's nothing majorly different between this live performance and the PHM version. (10) Get Down Make Love Trent apparently expected the audience to participate more in this song than they actually did. While singing the chorus of the song, he stops singing for "Get down make love ..", apparently wanting the audience to take it from there. After the second verse, the audience response is less than enthusiastic, which prompts Trent to chastise them. "You know you know the fucking words!!!" he yells at them. This is followed by a disappointed "Awwwwwww .." (11) Down In It Trent begins this song by announcing "Ooooooooooooooh .. does anybody out there have an N-M-E [New Music Express] on them? Anybody have an N-M-E they can pass up to the front? No? You guys understand English? I just took a shit, and I need something to wipe my ass with! Anybody got an N-M-E they can pass up to the fucking front? .. Here's a song about fucking!" Again, in this song, at several spots Trent expects the audience to take the lyrics, but apparently they don't; he bangs on the mike with his hand as if he's expecting something more. (12) Big Man With A Gun Trent starts this song out with a rallying cry: "Come ON!!!" He then offers some advice to the audience: "If anybody feels like hurting themselves .. you should do it NOW!!!" Beyond that, this is pretty much standard TDS fare. (13) Head Like A Hole Pretty standard. Trent makes it a point to refer to "God of money" as opposed to "God Money," as he does on PHM. This ends the concert, and marks the beginning of the encore. (14) Dead Souls This is a very nice live recording of this song, and it sounds very similar to what appears on The Crow soundtrack. In a rare show of gratitude (for this particular show, anyway) Trent begins the song with a humble "Thank you .." This was a very nice selection to play for the beginning encore; it's a somewhat unexpected song. (15) Help Me I Am In Hell Much like on Broken, the sole purpose of this song is to serve as an intro to "Happiness In Slavery"; the version that was performed in this concert is a slighly expanded version of the original song. (16) Happiness In Slavery Standard fare for a live version of HIS; this particular rendition is cut short, but not by much. It fades out at the end. Trent's comments including replacing "I have found you can find happiness in slavery" with "I have found you can find, fuck you." From CHRISE

The actual sound quality isn't perfect, but it is pretty good. It is an audience recording, using a DAT. Both shows on it are about the same quality roughly. The content of the CD is great if you want early material and the complete Lollapalooza show including the most complete version of Now I'm Nothing I have yet to hear. From ERIC.

Quality: VG-
Comments: Tracks 1-19 are live from Los Angeles, Tracks 20-28 are the Purest Feeling tracks. It is a 2CD set, the first cd is live from the Self Destruction tour. The sound on it is average, sometimes it is hard to hear trent, but the instruments come through very well, and the crowd does not get very annoying ever. The second cd continues with Closer, Dead Souls, and a couple other live songs. Trent adds in some things, such as "This is for you guys on the floor" and "This is only for you guys. Everyone sitting down, fuck off." From track 5 onward, it is the same as the Purest Feeling release. If you don't have Purest Feeling and can't find it, or a better boot from the '94 tour, then this might be acceptable. From WILLYJOY.

The first four songs are from a Holland Radio Interview broadcast the day after the concert in Rotterdam, Holland. They are mislabelled on the cover as being in Vienna. However, they are soundboard recordings of these songs, and they are mixed very well on this CD, and are of excellent quality. From ANON.

Suck (live) -- This track was recorded directly off of the soundboard at Lollapalooza '91, 2. Supernaut (original) -- This is the original recording of the track with Trent on vocals, undistorted. It was probably mastered from the 1990 Wax Trax! sampler. From ANON.

Quality: Good-
Comments: Tracks 1-7 are from Boston, MA on 03/10/90, Tracks 8-13 are from Birmingham, England on 09/10/91 This is the same bootleg as Killer Instinct but worse quality. Choose Killer Instinct over this one if at all possible. The first part is the same as By Bizarre Hands, and the second is from the same show as Goldwyns in Birmingham in England. A review of the first 7 tracks is available in the By Bizarre Hands review. The second part, tracks 8-13 are another story altogether. They are decent quality, until the sound gets a tad loud, then you notice that there is craploads of distortion recorded into the songs. It is dealable, but can get annoying. It is a shame that there is distortion in these tracks, as the bass and treble in them is excellent. The distortion is overpowering though. From ANON.
