I had to compare them since they're two of my all time favorite bands. What's your opinion?

Radiohead. Much as In Rainbows was a complete letdown in every way, and they're not even close to as good as anyone in the press says, NIN is just too damn inconsistent, and Trent frankly hasn't made a truly stellar album in 16 years, though The Fragile is still pretty good. I can't wait for the reissue of Pretty Hate Machine. The tracks from it sound 1000% better on All That Could Have Been Live than on the album.

Haven't yet heard music I've enjoyed from Ninch Inch Nails (haven't heard any full albums, just various tracks from different albums), but am open to suggestions.

I've been listening to both bands for a very long time and I've seen them both live several times. I think Radiohead are more consistent so I'll vote for them. The only album by them I wouldn't call brilliant is their debut.

All opinions are appreciated.

"Hurt" is about the only song I remember the name of.  Some of what I heard was very crude, and I recall one very tasteless video.  Unless I hear music a lot or have albums, I rarely remember titles.  I didn't like the vocals, or those with coarser lyrics, so instrumentals would be safer (if you can name  a couple particularly, you think, good ones, then I'll try find if it's streaming somewhere since I'm not about to buy any NIN albums).

Thanks.

To be quite honest? I can't see myself comparing the two.

Nine Inch Nails.  As much as Radiohead are cool, I believe what Mr. Reznor has done for the industry is..well...beyond phenomenal actually.  He manages to blend his lyrics and music nicely together in order to portray themes of which he so desires.  And he's up front about it as well.

Also, NIN is more reflective of society imo.




Also, to those of you who want albums: The Downward Spiral is an excellent start.

^I'd recommend The Mark Has Been Made, Corona Radiata (best ambient piece I've ever heard), A Warm Place, and 28 Ghosts IV. Actually, the entire "Ghosts" album is instrumental but I think the best ones are the ones I just listed.

Thanks, adace.  I'd heard about that instrumental album.  Will definitely look into your recommendations.

Raaaadiohead. I quite like NIN though, but my Radiohead binges often last for weeks.

NIN by a country mile. Radiohead sound like I feel, NIN makes me feel like I sound.

Some of the best NIN songs: Hurt (but you've heard it and don't like it.)  This version is pretty cool.  Credit to Dean for turning me on to it:

Granted, Trent does overuse profanity. LOL  Cash stripped it out for his version and I've read that Reznor started doing it Cash style, lyrically.

Other good ones which back up NIN's inclusion on this site:
Pinion
Last
A Warm Place
The Downward Spiral
La Mer
The Great Below
The Perfect Drug

Head Like a Hole
Sunspots
Right Where It Belongs
In This Twilight
Zero-Sum

I'm a big fan of Radiohead, too.

And oh yes, I have a collection of their videos.  Absolutely tasteless, but I still like them.

Radiohead even if just slightly related with prog rock, has it's moments for sure for me.

NIN - you're joking?

Neither of them are my cup of tea, but I like Nine Inch Nails better.
