Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor became an instant alternative-music hero with 1989's PRETTY HATE MACHINE, an angry-yet-accessible album that appealed to rock fans and clubkids alike. Record-label woes led to a five-year delay for Reznor's follow-up, with two hard-edged EPs (BROKEN and its remix disc, FIXED) issued in the interim. Finally released in 1994, THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL seethes with an almost unhinged industrial ferocity, due, in part to both Reznor's frustration with messy bureaucratic entanglements and time spent withMinistry's Al Jourgensen during the peak of that band's guitar-heavy phase.
Although, SPIRAL does reveal the influence of latter-day Ministry (particularly on the blazing opener, "Mr. Self Destruct", and the scathing, distortion-filled "March of the Pigs"), Reznor also incorporates elements of progressive rock and funk into the proceedings. More than anyother Nine Inch Nails song, the provocative, groove-laden "Closer" (and its shocking video) established Reznor as a bold, audacious artist. In contrast, quiet and emotive songs such as Eno-esque instrumental "A Warm Place" and the spare, haunting "Hurt" (famously covered by Johnny Cash shortly before the country legend's death) revealed Reznor's sensitive side. Here the intense performer works with his largest sonicpalette yet, and the results are fascinating.

Introduced in 1999, it was developed by Sony and Philips Electronics, the same companies that created the Compact Disc. SACD was in a format war with DVD-Audio, but neither format has managed to replace regular audio CDs.

Bonus disk as well which is worth the money if you're a fan. I can't play SACD's but a number of the tracks on the bonus CD are on soundtracks or unavailable so I decided well worth the money when I say it at this price.

Ooooo. Tempting. But I already have the non SACD version. Can anyone advise me if it is worth buying again for the SACD version?

It's mind blowing in SACD surround sound. Incredible quality and awesome use of multi-channel. Hopefully it will get re-released in a format (Blu-ray) where more people can experience it.

Though I assume there are DTS CD rips floating around the internet....
There certainly are for other great ones such as DSOTM and War of the Worlds.

Not remastered, though I haven't directly compared the two.
I carry an Apple Lossless version of this one on my iPod.

Edit: Forgot there was a Dual Disc release of this in the States, so you could experience the surround mix in standard Dolby Digital.

The remastered version at the least corrects an incorrect tracksplit on the original disc, not sure if theres any other notable difference.
