I thought Fragile was very underrated, but With Teeth has been a what Fragile has been to most fans to me so far.
Nothing that NIN has done has come close to ecoing the creativity or textural diversity of The Downward Spiral. The mechanical darkness of that album is so tangible that its creepy. The opening measures of "Reptile" will make you turn on a light in a dark room.
That album is really a quality work from a musical standpoint.
