    Same here. I think this is just a stop-gap release for any new full-length NIN release coming soon.

    One has to wonder what this will sound like. Since he said that this is different than hesitation marks, and the soundtracks we have to assume.

    Much less focus on percussive rhythm
    Less floaty ethereal sounds capes
    Less traditional song arrangements

    Personally I'd love something like Tetsuo theme with vocals. It would be nice to hear some ripping guitar tones and "live" drums applied creatively.

    I wonder if dude will scream again. I've missed the classic Reznor bark since With Teeth.

    I'm not clear on this release. Will this be available in stores on the 23rd? Will folks who preorder get it before 23rd?

    I have the WAV and FLAC version. someone send me the MP3 version of the jpg if you have it (don't rehost it on imgur or anything, they recompress it). If you are unsure how, PM me and I will give you an email.

    Can you explain more in detail what you're talking about? I'm not sure what you're trying to describe with "3 time download bullshit for a single jpg" or anything you're saying. My email receipt for my "physical component" + FLAC order didn't come with any links or images. So please elaborate.

    No. The "Not true." tweet was in response to that rumor that took the internet by storm when that internet jagoff invented the whole "Dive and Slam" single release out of thin air and everybody was eating it up.

    Ugh, really? I think it's absolutely terrible and quite unintuitive and poor. Why is everything so goddamn HUGE? Maybe my least favorite NIN.com design in 10+ years.

    ./perceptualdiff -verbose -threshold 0 -output compare.ppm digi-phy_-_wav.jpg digi-phy_-_flac.jpg
    Field of view is 45.000000 degrees
    Threshold pixels is 0 pixels

    There is no word on whether this will be available in brick and mortar. The "physical component" is a limited edition, so probably not for that one. Other than that, vinyl is the only physical format this album is being released on. So maybe you'll see some of the vinyl in stores starting in 5-6 months?

    The people who preorder will get a link to the download format of their choice at 12:01am on December 23rd. The "physical component" is expected to ship the first week of January and the vinyl version is expected to ship some time in the Spring.

    You buy the album and you get the below email. The download for me (I bought the wav version) spits out digi-phy_-_wav.jpg. The FLAC buyers are getting digi-phy_-_flac.jpg

    Yeah, I didn't get an email like that at all. The only email I got was this. Uh, maybe it was because I completed my purchase only 5 minutes after the website went up and they weren't ready? Now I'm worried I didn't get an email I was meant to get.


    What happens if you use delete the .jpg at the end of the url so it ends with .wav instead? Does it do anything?

    It's not that type of download. You cant alter what you are sent, in any obvious way.
    I also got that email. The one in my screenshot came in seconds after the one you are showing.

    I'm hoping for the EP to be as aggressive as my other favorite NIN EP: Broken.

    What does "it's not that type of download" mean? Isn't it a URL? If it's a URL, why can't you delete the last 4 characters of the URL and then hit enter?

    On the discogs page, both Recoiled and Not The Actual Events are listed as halos.

    Same boat, and this link https://store.nin.com/products/not-t...digital-object didn't work either. This is killing me.

    I've been listening to AR/TRs work for the past few years and feel like I can recognize their sound... so I am VERY excited by the left turn/unrecognizable description.

    I can't wait to blast this.

    I was wondering about that - I'm at work, so I didn't want to click it to my work computer.

    Has anyone tried to click the link in the email? Did it download anything?

    Yeah, for the digital+physical, it downloads a jpg file called digi-phy_-_flac.jpg for the flac version, digi-phy_-_wav.jpg for the wav version and, presumably, digi-phy_-_mp3.jpg for the MP3 version.
