Description: As a placeholder between the full-length Pretty Hate Machine and The Downward Spiral, Broken packs a serious punch. Angrier and less poppy than Machine, this EP is full of noisy hooks, if such a thing is possible (check out that guitar riff on the full-throttle "Wish"), and much closer aesthetically to the industrial subgen ...

Gary Listens To Nine Inch Nails (15 music items)

"An over looked small EP released in 1992, Broken raises the scale that started with the debut, though it's much more of a pissed off hard rock album than anything else. A total step in a different direction than the predecessor. The album centers around short guitar interludes that lead into the songs main singles. Wish, Happiness In Slavery and Gave Up are your big hits here, and they totally rock. There is a cover of Adam Ant's Physical and Pigface's Suck that could be called filler, but it "

"I never understand everyone's fixation with "The Downward Spiral". It's a solid album, but Broken is far superior. This album is the perfect mix of Industrial, Rock and Metal. You can here all three in every song. "

Favorite Albums From 1992 (14 music items)

"Broken is such an angry, dark and visceral EP and in my opinion is the essence of hard industrial rock. I believe this is Trent's best work, it's just pure intense energy. Favorite song on the album: Last "

Best albums of 1992 (29 music items)

"Visceral. Seething. Brutal. Mind-blowing. Changed the way I listened to music forever the first time I heard it, with its honest lyrics delivered with such raw anger you can feel it, buzzsaw guitars and undeniable hooks. It may technically be an EP, but broken works as well as any proper album despite its shorter run-time. My favorite EP of all-time. Favorite song: "gave up" See also: Nine Inch Nails: From Best to Worst"

"Then: While I had recorded nearly every original studio track NIN had released off the radio during the A-Z uncensored show, I ran out of tape halfway through "That's What I Get". Holy shit was I excited when this CD arrived and I saw the track "Wish" listed. Holy shit was I even more thrilled by the time I finished listening to it! Now: This one was stolen at the same time as my copy of STP's Purple, difference being that I replaced Broken immediately. "

"Day 02 - A song from your favorite band/artist NIN has been my favorite artist since 1992. I could also have gone with a(nother) song by The Doors or Tripping Daisy."

I was a preteen metalhead (62 music items)

"The aforementioned albums prepared me to appreciate Broken, but by the time I'd listened to it I'd decided no other album had ever compared. The metalhead in me loved how heavy and angry it was...T-Rez is so sincerely pissed off you can FEEL it. The heavy riffs meet harsh waves of dissonant noise, adding to the tension and anger being expressed. Forget Nirvana, here was an artist speaking my language clearly, both lyrically and sonically. Pantera had to settle for a permanent backseat, especial"
