In case you haven't heard the word, Nine Inch Nails has released a 4-part album exclusively over the internet. The album is titled Ghosts and the first portion (Ghosts I) is available for free at their website. The whole package is available for 5 bucks (plus there's a few more options too). Before you get too excited, the whole shebang is instrumental, no vocals from Mr. Reznor on this outing.
The site should be working well now - I delayed posting this for a few days because NIN couldn't handle the traffic they were getting. That seems to be resolved now, so happy downloading!
I must say, I like what I've heard so far. I'm still getting a feel for the album, but I like it. Obviously it's lacking Trent's screeching/soothing vocal chords but it certainly still feels like NIN despite this. Of course, I always loved the instrumental parts of The Fragile (my favorite NIN album) so this isn't much of a leap for me.
Casual fans will certainly find this a little lacking, but sometimes you just want something to listen to that doesn't drive a hook into your head. If that's what you're into - look no further. My recommendation - download Ghosts I, it's free. Who doesn't like free? If you like what you hear, what's five bucks? Seriously, he's not askin' for much here.
