    Not exactly a favorite of mine (though very essential to HM), but there's a case where a song really pops live.

    The first time I saw a teaser clip of it being rehearsed (I think on Instagram), I immediately felt how the live drums made it hotter. And of course Pino murders it. *eyes roll back from de pleasure*

    I'm not sure if I like the new song any now, or if I am just moving past how different it comes across for NIN, and thus accepting it as it is...

    The more that I listen to it, the more that I like it. The drums are organic but definitely programmed. Every since seeing that video of Trent playing sax for Bowie on the Outside tour I hoped he would do something like this.
    I wonder if this album will have songs with clear cut beginnings and ends or will each song be connected seamlessly.
    Rumor is that this LP is about his neighbours... although unverified.

    Maybe some fans who don't like the new song can be directed to this poignant essay:

    I am Trent Reznor this is how I write songs
    Make all my verses sound like this
    Then I throw in some random percussion
    So that you can dance to it
    Weird guitar!

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Then my voice starts getting louder
    Then I bring it back down
    Its almost time to hear the chorus
    But first let's listen to this weird sound
    (Weird Sound)
    ...what the hell was that?

    [Outro]
    Let's end the song with creepy piano
    Now it sounds like a haunted house
    Let's end the song with creepy piano
    Yeah that sounds really awesome

    I highly suggest you to do something similar since you seem to care about this kind of experience; just create the right situation, take your time and go with it, without compromises, if possible.
    In my opinion, this is what Trent suggested with the whole "vinyl statement": just care enough about the music to make it relevant, instead of treating it like any other piece of entertainment thrown at you; The things you care about enough to do something like this are probably pretty limited anyways, so you wouldn't want to throw the chance away.

    I said somewhere earlier in this thread (which is totally lost in the shuffle now) that the hardest period to get through, is the first 48 hours, and if you can get past the first 2 days, it's smooth sailing from there, and this happens to be around the 48 hr mark since the "leak" came out, and I don't feel myself having any cravings anymore. So I think I can push this aside for the next few weeks now. New Ghost record will be dropping in 2 weeks anyway, and then a week after that new PIG record, so It's not like I'll be starving for new music. I'll have plenty to get me through until Bad Witch drops.
    The first few days is definitely the worst part, but reading all these opinions just made me think it will be very much worth to wait it out, and enjoy some of the (probably) most esoteric music NIN ever dropped. I'm not so worried about liking it or not, I respect these guys enough to take anything they do as something to learn from.

    I mean anything's possible.

    But first off, why set up a "story," however abstract, and do the whole thing with the physical components and hire 42 to build that machine, only to have the ending be about Trent Reznor's neighbors.

    And secondly, if it's him BITCHING about his neighbors, well, that would probably cause some personal bullshit in the neighborhood.

    to me, this song is more akin to less than, in a sense that it's not that indicative of the album's content. i think this song is meant to be jarring not only by itself but within bad witch. have to admit, for as much as i liked blackstar, i do hope i'm right.

    A guy who listened to the two new tracks at a presale event for the tour has said one was an instrumental with a sax at one point and one had some experimental/glitched vocals

    After several listens now, this track has really grown on me. I really like it. Like most of you, I was surprised at first by how different it was. I'm now surprised, despite its uniqueness, how well it fits with the other EPs. It feels like it belongs next to Dear World, Shes Gone Away, Not Anymore and The Idea of You. Stoked on God Break Down the Door, and can't wait for the rest.

    I didn't mean it. I was kidding. Recalled a news alert about TR having problems with a neighbor and thought it would be a pretty funny sight him pounding away at 16th notes on the guitar picturing his shitty neighbour's face.
