    Zero Sum live would have been incredible (the piano melody after In This Twilight, which closed many of the shows, doesn't count).

    This poll should be about who's been on a bigger downward trajectory over the last 5 years.

    I have in fact only seen them once, on the Lateralus tour, and it was supremely disappointing. On the other hand, not long before that NIN on the Fragility tour were fucking min-blowing even with extremely far back nosebleed seats.

    Well, Trent already saw this coming, so he stopped touring--at least for the next several years. However, playing the Ghost tracks live provided a suitable transition in the middle of their sets on the LiTS tour. As for aesthetics, it's needless to say that the visuals used on their tours (TDS, Fragility, and especially LiTS) were ahead of their time, and Trent put his own money into financing that element of the NIN live experience.

    As for Tool, I could break out a Mr. Fuzz moment, but I won't. But I will say that I become deeply immersed in the 17 minutes of Wings for Marie/10000 Days everytime I listen to it.

    Did any of you go to the wave-good bye tour. There were people from all over the place,seen NIN several times , and been waiting in line over 24 hours to get in front.Tickets were $60 something dollars for a small venue . And one of the obsessive fans that i met only started seeing NIN in 06 and that particular person lost her husband ,house,job and i dont wanna even get started with her kids to be this scary obsessive NIN fan .Also that particular person i think said she has seen NIN around 27-40 something times.

    NIN has also done a free show for SD after their drummer had heart attack after playing for 45min and the second show was like another 2+hour show.

    They also canceled their Tucson show because of this and never did a make up date. What in the world does "most obsessed" have to do with who's better?

    Last year at the Tool show in Phoenix this lady next to me turns and screams, "this is my 37th show!"

    I thought I was bad.


    It all depends what you're looking for, industrial or progressive rock. They're both the best in their respective genres.

    I had tix for that show and barely found out it was cancelled before dragging my ass down to the venue. Trent has been on my shit list ever since. I was also rather disgusted by he and his bandmates rock star antics on the Closure tour doc. Tearing up the green room should be left to folks with lesser IQs.

    Many other people skip that whole track after Jambi and jump straight to The Pot; they're really missing out. I read somewhere, can't recall where, but Adam Jones had said that it is the best thing they've ever done, and that Justin, Danny and himself were actually recording well into the middle of the night, not willing to stop until the instrumental captured the emotion properly.
    Don't quote me on this, I'll try to find where I read this so that it's not just made up..

    i like the point about industrial rock vs progressive rock being the main difference. Tool is king of prog, NIN of industrial.

    such a good point

    Yeah, that sucked. But way back when, NIN fucked up at the old touring Lollapalooza, and then proceed to play 6 shows within a 2 years' time in our state. He hates us now though since it's cool to hate us.

    What I find amusing is that all these people claiming Nine Inch Nails is the 'king of industrial' probably don't even listen to shit like Kraftwerk, Skinny Puppy or Ministry.

    Then again, I don't expect most people who listen to Tool to be all that privy to the likes of King Crimson, Yes or Rush even.

    Neil Peart is one of DC's inspirations, I believe. I love them both since I drum as well.

    And you might remember that Kraftwerk puts on one helluva Visual Tour de France

    EDIT: And how could I forget about Frippertronics!

    Are you talking strictly about the drumming? because otherwise you're nuts to compare Yes to Tool.
