Remember when it would take 5 years to get a new Nine Inch Nails album? And remember when it would cost $15?
Just two months after the 36 track instrumental Ghosts, my teenage sex god Trent Reznor has released ANOTHER album, and this time – its completely free. Reznor says on NIN’s official site: “Thank you for your continued and loyal support over the years – this one’s on me.”
we encourage you to
share it with your friends,
post it on your blog,
play it on your podcast,
give it to strangers,
Called The Slip, download it here (I just did, and am about to take a listen).
UPDATE: Though I still admire Trent’s time management, I can’t say The Slip is all that could have been.. Theres a few standout tracks (“Discipline”, “1,000,000”, “The Four of Us Are Dying”, “Head Down”), and I’ll admit a day of listening is probably not enough to fully embrace this album. But half of the tracks seemed pretty forgettable (and often quite repetitive) to me.
