Title: NIN - The Slip
Post by: Atcote on May 19, 2008, 07:02:50 PM
Okay, okay, we've all heard that NIN's new album The Slip (http://dl.nin.com/theslip/signup) is happily free for sexy download (just a few months after Ghost, too). (If you didn't know this, then you probably don't read random music news sites or aren't a fan of NIN, which is fair enough.)
What hasn't quite broken through with the media is that it's pretty bloody good (at least by my musically starved ear).

Give it a download and tell us what you think!

Also, I think it's also getting the super Vinyl package too at some point.

I've waited a couple of weeks to reply to allow this new album to sink in a bit.

All I can keep thinking is SLOW DOWN TRENT!!

IMO - NIN has been in a slump for the past 5 years, ever since the amazing album The Fragile each NIN album has felt like he hasn't put in the same time and thought into each release. With teeth for me was.... well it was a terrible album, I found all the good tracks near the end of the album, the rest felt like mindless filler.
Year zero on the other hand was a step up from with teeth. It was a nice new approach to his music, but unike the Fragile there were still a few just plain terrible songs. In this twilight was absolutely amazing... made me enjoy the album.

But this last album the slip just doesn't stick. It SLIPS off my radar XD
I don't know, after spending 2 weeks listening to the ablum it feels as though theres a reason its free.

NIN just need to spend a good 2 years min on the next (if there will be) album, sit down and make it GOOD.

Either that or I've just set the bar too high after such an amazing set of albums ( Pretty Hate Machine, Downward Spiral, Broken and The Fragile)

well theres my 2 cents worth...

I recommend this, i put it on my player along with the 320 version. I'm pretty happy with 320, i mean you can't go uncompressed all the time, but if you can afford it you get reimbursed via sweet acoustics.
