I'll be honest here and say that I have only rediscovered NIN after quite a few years. I am SO glad I did! Not now having the original release of this album I cannot directly compare this remaster with it. I will say that it has been treated with respect and the tracks are as fresh and pack the high level of impact that I remember. I genuinely believe this to be one of the best debut albums made for a long while and the remaster gives it a new lease of life. If you don't have it, why not?
