This Nine Inch Nails tribute from Europe features some
excellent electro-industrial and EBM bands. It’s for this reason that
I feel that this is one of the best NIN tribute albums
The following are featured on this long player:
Y Front “Terrible Lie”
Skorbut Vs. Kalte Farben “Into The
The Ancient Gallery “Head Like A Hole”
Nerve Factor “Perfect Drug”
Flesh Field “Heresy”
Generated X-ed “Starfuckers, Inc.”
Imperative Reaction “Ruiner”
Cycloon “Happiness In Slavery”
Halo Project “That’s What I Get”
Chiasm “Something I Can Never Have”.
Every song here is good and placed in nice order, but there are some
tracks that stand out more than others. I especially like Y
Front “Terrible Lie”, Akanoid “Sin”,
Nerve Factor “Perfect Drug”, Flesh
Field “Heresy”, SMP “Wish”
and Imperative Reaction “Ruiner”.
There’s not really a bad track here, but I was a little disappointed
that “Happiness In Slavery” and “That’s What I Get”
were turned into instrumentals. They are good instrumentals, but I would
expect covers of songs with vocals to contain vocals. Also, these two
instrumentals are placed toward the end of the CD next to each other.
I feel that they would have been better suited as opening and ending
If you are interested in a collection of Nine Inch Nails
songs given an electro-industrial/EBM edge, this CD is for you. While
I do like the tribute "Covered In Nails" a
lot, I would have to say that this NIN tribute album
is slightly better with more of an underground industrial edge that
makes it more appealing.
