51z-7AThnsL. SL500 AA300 TRENT REZNOR aka NINE INCH NAILS has never sounded better, as evident in the recent reissue of his 1989 debut PRETTY HATE MACHINE. Released this past November through the Bicycle Music Company/UMe after a long process of tracking down who owned the rights to what, the landmark debut from NINE INCH NAILS has been remastered from the original tapes and the result is a Reznor-approved revamping of the record, complete with a new digipack encased in a plastic slip-sleeve.

Containing the original ten tracks and a bonus cover of QUEEN’s “Get Down, Make Love” (the B-side to “Sin”), songs like “Head Like a Hole”, “Down in It,” and “Terrible Lie” sound just as fresh now as they did the first time around.

While later releases under the NIN banner may have been more ambitious and epic in scope, none have been as accessible, nor as timeless as PRETTY HATE MACHINE.
