might as well its free and all that. So far so good.
well generous and has some balls to for just giving this good stuff away.
To the future!
his attitude makes me want to buy this, even though i can get it legally for free and i'm about 1/10th the NIN i was eight years ago.
i also think it's incredible how he's been on this creative high for the last few years. i remember the time NIN fans had to wait five years for another album, and now he's churned out five albums worth of material in the last three years. i basically bought year zero because the campaign surrounding it was so wonderfully imaginative and detailed more than anything.
the music on year zero and with teeth wasnt that good. downloading ghosts and the new one to see if he's improved much...
but i really like year zero. it got crunch.
and probably the second best NIN album. But it's not a record that gratifies at first listen, much like The Downward Spiral. With Teeth is a lot more 'pop' oriented, but Year Zero is serious finger-on-the-pulse music - you could accurately describe a lot of it as Dubstep. But then again, this is DiS, and there seems to be a general blinkered attitude toward Reznor round these parts.
A shame as he's one of very few bands/artists who've been around 20 years who still make exciting music.
so you can buy it then, I might. I love his atitude to music right now it is wondrful and you can tell he is loving doing it.
after my first listen. Just good songs nice NIN stuff its a bit like a NIN party record.... maybe?
Admittedly it gets a wee bit boring during the second half, but then again this is only my first listen!
The sparse piano on Discipline is best moment on it <3
I got excited and posted my party comment in the firs half hehe. I like that though I like a bit of brooding mellow NIN
Mellow is indeed correct. I just expected it all to be like 1,000,000, Letting You, Discipline, Echoplex, etc.. silly me.
godo tho aint it. I think I will enjoy spinning this more.
another whole free album?! giving the music away free actually makes me want to pay for it. confusing. Trent Reznor deserves a lot of respect for his continuing attitude to the distribution of his music and i for one salute him.
also from this day forth, i propose: 'doing a Radiohead' shall be known as 'doing a Reznor'
Unfortunately I think it'll be still be called 'doing a Radiohead'!
i guess 'doing a Radiohead' is a bit more snappy. shame, Trent deserves more credit for what he does.
thats a whole other thread there, but suffice to say i dont agree!
on the whole 'doing a Radiohead' point, that phrase is basically used as a lazy way to describe anything released online by an unorthadox method, by headline writers (DiS is particularly guilty of this). I meant that NIN have taken the practice a lot further and done it in loads of different ways, therefore they have a more legitimate claim to be cited in that phrase.
BUT FUCK THEM
Trent is doing this far better than them
high quality mp3s here I come!
it's got different artwork for every track. <3
so far. ghosts took me a while to get into, as I was really hoping for something like this, with vocals etc. nonetheless it was still good.
just thought I'd share
I was just about to delete that file as well!
Thoroughly impressed by Mr Reznor. As a few have said, it's funny how putting out a high-quality (albeit digital) product for free only makes you wanna pay for it.
I loved Ghosts, I found it really interesting - and I think I prefer the final ambient tracks of The Slip, but it's a pretty solid album.
He is certainly ahead of the game in distiribution terms! I was expecting a new album today, but for free!? Kudos to you sir.
I'm really liking the album aswell, and it's still growing on me!
ceases to amaze me. The albums brilliant. :D
This man knows the way forward.
when I made this thread, wasn't impressed by the first half but thought the second half showed potential. First full listen through is definitely yielding better results. Echoplex sounds like Reznor doing post-punk. The second half is still excellent. What a wonderful free gift!
but need to give it more time. I am in admiration for the way Trent Reznor is going abouthis business. Seems like this self-publishing malarky has really invigorted his creative juices!
Year Zero: Part II (as promised, and as some of the booklet imagery suggests), or just another album?
still waiting for my download... another hour?!
but the zip took a few minutes just..
The last thirteen words in that article amuse me.
