Nine Inch Nails released their groundbreaking debut album 'Pretty Hate Machine' in 1989. The synth-driven industrial rock record features the singles "Down in It", "Head Like a Hole" and "Sin". Although some influences can be detected, such as Skinny Puppy, The The, and New Order, the album as a whole sounds like nothing that ever came before it, and nothing that has come since sounds quite like it.
On Pretty Hate Machine, Trent Reznor sounds tough but also strained and vulnerable. There's a huge, frustrated mall-kid aspect to his voice, to the way it goes from defeated mutter to impotent yowl in no time flat. It's like he knows how petty he can sound, but he can't help himself. Arguably what makes the album so memorable is that the texture and abrasive intensity is matched with very catchy and well written songs, which never sound self-indulgent or meandering.
