    they said different, they said less NIN influence, they delivered.
    My thoughts, exactly. Just finished listening to all the songs, and I find myself... eager for the whole album. This is... fresh. Very fresh

    I'd also like to see more people say Mariqueen can't sing after hearing Ice Age. She sounds absolutely amazing

    Shit this is rather amazing! Love it so far! This feels like the band Trent always wanted to have...I mean he did have more pop-ish tendencies in the beginning!

    And of course, this is so well produced!

    Ok so I just finished my first play through, I'll stop spamming the thread now but:

    This is so far removed from the first EP, with the exception of Keep it Together it's hard to believe it's the same band - I really liked the first EP, but this is something else.
    It has such a mood about it.
    Excitement always enhances a new piece of music, but this is awesome.
    There isn't a track on here that doesn't have something special in it, the unexpectedness of Ice Age with Q's awesome voice, the chant of The Loop Closes or the atmosphere of Speaking in Tongues - this is a winner.

    Fuck not spamming the thread! Feel like an excited puppy right now. Sadly leaving for work in 10 minutes. Also POTENTIAL SPOILERS TO ANYONE THAT DOESNT WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING YET (NOT SURE HOW TO DO SPOILER TAGS YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED), whos that singing with Mariqueen in On The Wing? Is it just me or does that not sound like Trent?

    This was an exciting listen. I have really enjoyed everything from Ghosts onward. TSN is one of my favorite things TR has ever done. But these tracks are a really welcome addition. It’s a good combination of production style going all the way back to Saul’s album but newly applied arranged into something new(er) sounding. Each song does create a mood or tension. Criticisms will probably be that songs are not super dynamic with big hooks or choruses and that each song kind of “krautrocks” along. I like Keep It Together, but it is probably my least favorite track of the EP. Very excited for the album.

    It's not the words. It's the notes.

    According to the (not confirmed yet, right?) "Welcome Oblivion" tracklist, "Speaking In Tongues" and "The Sleep of Reason" won't be included on the LP, but I hope they are included as extra tracks in a possible cd limited/special edition with a few demos or remixes (if it's a 2 disc edition) for those of us that like to buy cds and want to have those tracks in a physical format (I don't have and have never had a vinyl player, I started to listen music in the 90s, I bought cds and that's what I keep buying, and I can't be the only one).

    I also expect more songs like "Ice Age" (or like "IYLSE") where Q can prove to the haters once again that she is actually a good singer.

    One new song in, and I'm getting a cool Sheryl Crow vibe.

    yeah, there seems to be some sonic overlap on several of the songs

    just finished my first listen and WOW. maybe my expectations were lower, but I thought it was amazing.

    I like the idea of them playing this music live in some intimate venues.

    OMG, I actually like this! Shocker! I've been highly critical of most HDA to date, including and especially Keep it Together. It has often appeared to me as if T plopped Q in front of a microphone and said, "sing this" or "press this button when I say so." That his adoration of her blinded him and/or intimidated her. This feels more like a marriage. The closer Q and T can get to appearing as equals, the better impression they will make musically. What has always attracted me to NIN is that the music and the personality behind it are intertwined. Q seems like a spunky girl, more than the sad whisperer of HDA. As a NIN fan, I would be happiest if Q and T would just scream at each other. Musically, that is. But, I think I'll actually buy this and check them out on tour.

    The EP has a weird combination of lo fi acoustic guitar sounds with cutting edge electronic music production. Word ice defines this record. Sounds like the perfect record to meditate to on a grey day.

    Sleep of Reason produces Monsters is my favourite its absolutely beautiful, stunning, love the way it gradually builds up with the warm sounds...


    Most tracks gradually build up, i like the chant 'beginning is the end keeps coming around again' and the beats 'on the wing'.

    Its much much much better than the first EP. They have a real distinct unique sounds here. I really like how calm it is. Proper chilled out.
    If i were to pick one record of TR's previous work i would link it with it would be The Fragile, lots of lovely insturmental soundscapes and some good hooks buried undeneath.

    But yeah lovely chilled out record with some nice punchy bits.

    The Loop Closes needs to be the song that opens their live shows.

    On The Wing chorus sounds like "I can see clearly now, (the rain is gone)."

    Can't wait for the "i don't like it, it doesn't sound enough like nine inch nails" posts from the people who previously posted "i don't like it, it sounds too much like nine inch nails, it needs its own identity".

    I am going to do Speaking In Tongues later this evening, because I kinda have to go out soon, but here is 5/6 of the lyrics for the EP (all have potential errors except The Loop Closes, for obvious reasons) http://www.ninwiki.com/An_Omen_EP

    edit: and the soundcloud page confirms this is sigil 3 (so keep it together isn't a sigil) (so what the fuck was sigil 1 then)
