    I still did not understand... Are the tracks reversed as in "ORDER" (14, 13, 12) - or - you have to spin the record backwards to listen to it?
    (If the last affirmative it is true Doesn't it spin the record backwards is a bit awkward and against the proper use of the turntable equipment?
    The audio is played backwards. You can listen to it here:

    Snippet from nin.com's post when AV was announced:
    THE NARRATIVE ARC LINKING THE THREE RECORDS BEGINS TO EMERGE THROUGH THE DISASSOCIATED LYRICS AND THE PROVOCATIVE AND CLUE-FILLED COVER ARTWORK AND ACCOMPANYING PHYSICAL COMPONENT

    Edit: DW and TL also share the everyone's asleep line.

    I agree, it is weird that global superstar Kanye West's platinum-certified The life of Pablo had no CD release

    For one thing I will tell you that West would starve if he depended on me to make money.

    I was simply makig a larger point which is that tbis entire argument of "No one else who is a major artist releases things without CDs" is totally made up. It has utterly nothing to do with anybody's quality of work. A largescale household name has done the same thing but even more extremely with zero physical tie-ins at all and was completely successful while doing so. It really doesn't matter beyond the desire to have a plastic case to sit on a shelf and stick in a car somewhere.

    Wow, this is what I call a stupid idea.
    Tracks 1-3 on A and 4-5 on B would fit just fine the record on both sides.
    The product was announced as single sided, another controversy.

    But it was funny to notice that Trent Reznor seems to be singing in German, with that backwards English.
    A language ARG connection...

    First off, I suggest taking down that SILLY vinyl statement off the NIN official website.
    If the fear is that things get digitized, it's not a vinyl only sale that will prevent this since you can have your LP digitize within 1 hour with, say, any decent turntable.
    If the fear is that CDs will get ripped by software, this will not either prevent from content getting uploaded to whatever torrent tracker.
    Also, when a digital download is offered, is even more dumb to assume that people won't put up on torrent trackers. This option is even easier and the person don't even need to rip the CD. And I've spotted 2 or 4 trackers with NIN direct downloads being seeded ad infinitum.

    Whatever reason is really behind this, does not stand up just for the sake of 1980/1990 music listening practices.
    This doesn't make any sense.

    I think a sweeter deal is if AV comes out next week, you get a lifetime ban. If it doesn't come out next week or ever, you get a lifetime ban.

    Pre ordered this a while back, it comes up as import because I'm from the uk. Now when I go into my order it just says "not yet shipped. Delivery estimate : we need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate"
    Anyway i bought it as a Christmas present for my sister along with the Add Violence CD so there's still plenty of time

I KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS WHEN THIS ISN’T THE CASE (LIKE WHAT JUST HAPPENED WITH BEFORE THE FLOOD). I ASSUMED WE ALREADY HAD THIS PRACTICE IN PLACE, I WAS INCORRECT."

    Well, dear NIN vinyl customer...
    Since the music is only on vinyl, what other kind of customer is there? Not relevant.
    And yes, I actually pre-ordered NTAE on vinyl (cancelled upon this email though).

    The second part is the same as saying they will have it first than other retailers.
    If the thing arrives first to your hands before it is available anywhere else, then obviously this shop is the best in the whole world...
    Or it is just my manner to interpret this.

    No. It literally says they would try to fulfill existing preorders before they are available anywhere else. That's it. If you interpret that as anything beyond an assurance that they were trying to make right with existing customers, you're wrong.

    Not The Actual Events

    So now we know She's Gone Away was written specifically for Twin Peaks; I wonder which one of the softer/more ballad-oriented tracks (possibly from Add Violence?) was a song that was rejected — The Lovers or This Isn't The Place? (Even The Background World would sort of fit with the show.) Or one that hasn't been released yet.

    I'm all for the Physical Components, I think its a new interesting way to deliver music to consumers. I mean it wont replace records and cds for me, bit I felt much less apprehensive throwing down money for them than strait up digital files.

    I am also eagerly awaiting EP3

    This is especially interesting because the majority of songs picked for the soundtrack were recorded well before 2015, with the exception of a few -> notably the Veils song, the Eddie Vedder song, and the NIN song

    As an avid NIN as well as Twin Peaks fan, I would love to know this. I don't NEED to know, I WANT

    Yeah, so I'm just turning my efforts to making my own CD. I've got my template for a simple card sleeve, and good scans of the vinyl sleeve I'm cleaning up in Photoshop. Gonna print it at work.

    As one of the people who derailed this thread, I want to say, firstly, sorry!

    Secondly, Not the Actual Events is quite incredible. An album-strength statement in just 5 songs. The vinyl pressing is quite possibly the best sounding record I own, and Trent's intentions have been realized—I do love holding the sleeve and the lyric sheet, just being with the work while I listen. Good shit.
