Trent Reznor Celebrates 20 Years of NIN’s “Pretty Hate Machine”
Pretty Hate Machine was released on October 20th, 1989 on TVT Records, introducing music fans to hits like “Head Like a Hole,” “Down In It,” “Terrible Lie” and other synth-goth classics. The New Rolling Stone Album Guide awarded PHM four-and-a-half stars, crediting Nine Inch Nails for being “on to something that no one else had quite figured out yet” and labeling Reznor as “an artist already near the top of his game.”
On a personal note...damn I feel old! It doesn't feel like 20 years since I ran out to buy this disc and thought it was the shit....rebellious twit that I was...
