Pretty Hate Machine is an important album in Rock History, because of pretty hate machine; it made it cool for metal heads to like keyboards. This was the first time we've heard of Trent Reznor, and the first time we've really seen one person credit themselves entirely and wholly on the inside sleeve ("Nine Inch Nails is Trent Reznor"). Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine opened up a new facet for rock-n-roll and modernized and popularized industrial music. If you listened to keyboard music before, it was probably Depeche Mode or something equally socially uncool to listen to. Although it has done so many things for modern music, we aren't here to critique relevance; we are here to critique music itself. The music itself on this album is angry, well organized, noisy and beautiful all at the same time. Reznor apparently knew what he was doing with this album, which seemed great in formula and even greater in execution. A Classic approaching two decades old, Pretty Hate Machine is filled with great timeless songs that seem to overlook the now sounding outdated keyboards for the composition and overall emotion of this record. A story of betrayal, love lost, distrust for the opposite sex, it is a cataclystic desend into a man's homeade misery. A definite favorite among both old and new Nine Inch Nails fans, Pretty Hate Machine is loved worldwide.
