    I remember getting Broken for Christmas in '92 and listening to it on repeat for hours at my grandparents house. That is my winter / holiday "album." Every time I listen to it that is what I remember. Now I feel old. Thanks.

    i often accidentally misread "Broken" as "Borken" and imagine the swedish chef singing "wish" and then crack up. i feel like someone must have photoshopped the swedish chef into a still one of the videos from broken by now.

    You could also have waited exactly one more day and had a higher-quality free stream direct from the artists, but okay, rage against that machine.

    I didn't realize until today that Fixed was released so soon after Broken. I always assumed it was released in 1993.

    Am I just hearing shit? In Just Like You Imagined, after the piano solo, I swear it sounds like the keys on the piano are being destroyed throughout the song after.

    I've always assumed that even though parts of Ghosts have a distinctly NIN sound that hasn't really been explored on any of TR&AR's soundtrack work (the tracks with harder beats and harsh guitars), that the essential idea (freely structured instrumental music) has sort of been taken over and continued by their scores?

    That might be the case, but who knows, a second collection of Ghosts would be very awesome and something worth to spend your money on imo

    The scores have more than scratched my itch for giant collections of instrumental TR/AR music and Deviations added even more to the pile for me. I feel like Social Network and Gone Girl both show how their instrumental work is almost better when it has specific imagery to tie itself to. There’s a palpable tone and a texture to the Dragon Tattoo score that Ghosts doesn’t have. I’ll take more in line with what they’re doing in the EPs over 2 more hours of Ghosts any day (but I really hope some Ghosts tracks come back live; there’s no way they can’t fit one or two into the setlists).

    So that final ep should be getting close, right? Maybe January?

    Maybe. Maybe February. Maybe March. He said 6-8 months. 6 months = January, 8 months = March.

    i think "the fragile" is my favorite NIN record. which is to say 1 of my favorite records ever. maybe it could've used a little editing but what would you leave off? i probably could live without "starfuckers inc" but that song served its purpose. "ghosts" & "downward spiral" are close. "fragile" for me is kind of best of all worlds. just my ever so humble opinion...

    I'd say that Vietnam War soundtrack is pretty heavy and they use a bunch of Ghosts in it as well... so maybe just the right project hadn't come along to use that temperament.

    Few months ago I gave Ghosts's tracks my own custom names to recongize them better for myself.

    I have no idea now what Ghosts tracks people are talking about though if they talk about their favorite tracks there.


    (I named one of them "Is This Really What You Wanted?" which was before The Background World came out, so that's a cool concidence)

    i feel like it would make sense to name them based on the images that go with each one (a la aphex twin and selected ambient works vol ii)

    I named them each after listening to them fully and was using my imagination to determine how it sounds like to me and what emotion it is getting accross.

    Just curious, has anyone heard of the song Taken from Deviations 1 vinyl? I have never heard it before and cant seem to find it online, like how its blocked from some unknown company on YouTube.

    Are you asking if it's actually a song on Deviations? Because it is.
