    AFTER OVER 20 YEARS AS A NIN FAN I HAVE NEVER MADE THAT CONNECTION. Fuck me (gently) with a chainsaw, this changes everything.

    Also...you know...Broken and The Perfect Drug and Burn and Deep and...
    I dont even see how they work together as a loose narrative. Broken feels fluid to me... and the three great songs work within the movies they were made for. Burn was literally perfect for NBK.

    That being said, I am happy they are putting out music so this is some pretty high level complaining.

    As far as not liking what's going on, I feel like these EPs were an experiment and that he'll (probably?) get back to something less out there for halo 33.

    Maybe.

    Or we'll get Ghosts V-VIII.
    Yes, Less Than was made for radio, that is for sure. It is probably my third (edit from 2 because The Background World is pretty damn good) fav song of the trilogy so far. Burning Bright is by far my favorite. I just read a bunch of quotes from TR talking about the new way people consume music and these EPs being an experiment ... to create music that matches how people consume music. I would set links if I remembers where I read it.

    Muse is doing things similar right now. Matt says the current climate is all about having a single and no one is listening to full albums. So they’ve released a 1 off single every couple months. Looks like they are working on a full album now.

    I think I remember that interview. I believe he was referring to releasing smaller projects every year or so as opposed to a full length album every four years, I don't think he was comparing the accessibility of said releases.
    It'll be interesting to see how this approach works for him. I always wonder how bands that've been around for decades garner new fans. You can't just put out an LP with a radio single because there is no radio anymore. Music videos only exist if you track them down and only really get noticed if they go viral. I suppose an artist can just be happy with their 30 year fanbase (like some of the folks here who are going to follow every move NIN makes and buy three different versions of every release), but I'm always interested on how a band evolves their fans.

    Funny, I love the end of The Great Destroyer and Me I 'm not is just awesome imho. And the message in Year Zero in general is so true and valid today.
    Different strokes for different folks.

    btw, Everything is so much fun. I totally agree with you there.

    That is possible, I may have over interpreted that quote about the albums onto the individual songs. That being said, I haven't been a fan of what they have decided to release as singles, which in the end may be my real beef. This latest release was ... wtf? I love Bowie, but not NIN's doing Bowie. It was much better when Bowie was doing NINs

    I like the new song a lot, but I have to give you props for this clever thought.

    For me, GBDTD is kind of NIN doing Bowie doing NIN (which was influenced by Bowie.)
    How bout that?

    Low influenced TDS which influenced Outside which influenced GBDTD.

    That sounds about right. How great was it to have Bowie's iconic voice and personality paired with the sound of NIN?

    oh it was great alright.
    Outside is pretty much my all time favorite album.

    And that's why I will never forgive myself for missing the Bowie/NIN show in Dallas in 95. Fifteen year old me had decided that he should no longer support NIN because they had "sold out" by scoring a radio hit with Closer.
    I was over the NIN ban within a few weeks, but of course that fucking show happened during that time period.
    I also mistakenly thought I'd have plenty more chances to see Bowie (I never saw him, ever.)
    I still have a hard time talking about it, ha.

    I love you for saying it. Been using this moniker since the dawn of the internet.

    But seriously, there were plenty of times over the years that I didn't think he was even gonna make it to 33. Part of me was fine with that. (especially after he started doing all the soundtrack work)

    Now that we are right on the cusp of it though, I just want him to call up and say, "hey swing by the studio and check out the making of it!"

    Alex Karapetis is the best NIN drummer that has ever been.
