Yep. It's just a shitty re-sequenced version of The Fragile that someone made to con fans out of money. Avoid at all costs.

EDIT: If you're curious, you can listen to the whole thing right here (without giving this guy a cent!):

Wow, that sounds terrible. He didn't even properly crossfade the first two songs. Jacked up the compression and called it 'mastering'. Fuck that guy.

not just the first two songs. literally every song has the jagged edges of proper album crossfades (unless they just flow together because they are back-to-back like on the album - see tracklist below). he also jacked the bass an enormous amount. sounds like it was "mastered" on a pair of earbuds for the dubstep crowd.

he also copyrighted it to Nullco, who don't have rights to anything pre-The Slip. i highly doubt it's legal for him to sell this on iTunes.

so no one else has to listen to find out his poor sequencing for shits and giggles:
La Mer
Even Deeper
Complication
I'm Looking Forward to Joining You, Finally
The Frail
Starfuckers, Inc. (the transition from The Frail is literally the stupidest thing on this entire shitstain - starts around 18:20)
Pilgrimage
The Wretched
The Day the World Went Away
The Way Out is Through
We're in This Together
Please
Ripe (With Decay)
Somewhat Damaged
The Great Below
The Mark Has Been Made
The Fragile
The Big Come Down
No, You Don't
We're in This Together (yes, it happens twice, all 7 minutes)
Where is Everybody?
Underneath it All
Into the Void
Just Like You Imagined

stick that list in your favourite DJ program, push the starts and ends together a bit, crank the sub frequencies, and you can have your own The Fragile (Center)!

The fact that Trent and Co. Are not doing something about this baffles my mind.

I imagine TR's pretty busy & hasn't stumbled upon this, so I just sent an email along to the management.

@rob_sheridan (http://twitter.com/rob_sheridan): @chinobox (http://twitter.com/chinobox) No idea what that is. Looks like someone covering NIN or something. Nothing to do with us.

By the way, did anybody see this?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_Blown_(Single)

On top of getting Trent and Timbaland involved with the track, he also got the City of Prague Philharmonic and the Philip Glass Ensemble to perform on it AND he got Sam Mendes to direct the video for it. Man, this guy has connections!

EDIT: Just listened to YET ANOTHER track he claims Trent worked on...except this time it's extremely obvious he sampled The Hand That Feeds (which I'm sure he did without permission). Does this guy have a crush on Trent?

under the influence of Adrian Visby

So, what, is he a drug or something?

is this the song/video (directed by Sam Mendes) featuring Timbaland, the Prague Philharmonic, and the Philip Glass Ensemble?

because if so, you're dealing with someone who is probably completely insane.

also, the song is bullshit.

It's probably bullshit. I couldn't find any legit information that Sam Mendes directed the video for Visby, other than the Wikipedia entry (which is clearly written by him or Noelia or whoever). This guy has dug himself a big hole. He has no idea how screwed he is.

I sort of wish we could see annoyed, sarcastic Trent tear that idiot a new one using only words. Angry Trent was amusing and I'm bored...

No, I think Jinsai is right. Visby's name in parentheses is Satan, and there's another "video" directed by Spielberg. Someone seems to be off his meds. Let's quit giving the poor guy attention and just let this thread die.

Okay, it's time to stop giving this guy YouTube views and attention.
