I think my favourite NIN CD these days is the "And All That Could Have
Been" bonus CD (aka "Still") It features seom new and reworked tracks, all
with a softer edge - i think the majority are played on piano - I suppose
it's a bit like NIN Unplugged. It's amazing though and really highlights
the musical genius within Trent Reznor.
