NIN is an amazing live band. Seeing them on Lights In The Sky tour was hands down in my top 5 shows I've ever seen. The light show/display is easily the best I've ever seen & I know, no band will ever top that or even come close. Before I saw them I was not a huge fan. I was in love after their first show. Velvet I'd suggest next listen to Year Zero. Fantastic album, read on Wikipedia about album. They had the coolest, most intelligent marketing of this album.
