    Really growing on me. Definitely a trip-hop element in there, perhaps even a bleak, Joy Division type feel to it.

    Loving it. Very brooding in a sinister way. Haters suck

    I adore it so much that I think listening to it full blast with headphones just gave me the final push into the world of tinnitus. Get a real weird buzzing noise in my left ear once I take the headphones out that lasts about 3 - 5 minutes every time I listen to it full blast. Ah well, it was inevitable really. Totally worth it!

    I am not good with instruments, but the bassish sounding riff in this track sounds a lot like the guitar (I think?) riff from Head Down.

    Really enjoying the vibe to this. Some elements of it do remind me a lot of The Fragile, regardless.. It's a nice slice of something new.

    I had to give it a few listens before commenting. At first I was very skeptical about the new sound, but it has really grown on me. It is not a straightforward song, but it is very mysterious, dark, and eerie in a way that is not pretentious. I love the downtempo approach to it, and a put a good pair of headphones on my head and heard the microbeats, subtleties, and oddly placed textures in the music. It is not accessible by any means, which is something I thought we would get. I really admire the new approach and can't wait to see what they have planned, in terms of aesthetics for the music.

    I bought the song on Amazon, but I still downloaded the Soundcloud file because it's better quality. Win-win.

    Same here. We're obviously the cool kids on this forum.

    Is there a definitive stylization of the track? The YouTube video lists it is Keep it together_ which fits in line with the new band name and EP, but the Soundcloud/Amazon links don't include the underscore. I really hate things like this. Just give me something consistent.

    I like listening to the composite parts/instruments, but it just doesn't stick together for me.

    Nice track, looking forward to hearing it in context with the EP.

    If that's the single, not sure what to expect from the deep cuts...

    So you're trying to say that they couldn't keep it together?

    The ID3 tags of both the Soundcloud version and the iTunes version don't use the underscore for the track. However, the iTunes version has the song as "Keep It Together", while everybody else uses "Keep it together" so it doesn't seem like there's consistently to anything. Also, the iTunes version doesn't have the underscore after the band name. Blame Columbia Records.

    I love the music of the song, but not the vocals. Also, it just kinda feels like the song goes nowhere.

    What a champ. You possess the self restraint that most Trent fans severally lack.

    I wish every release Trent and company released came with a instrumental disc also. I just can't take the lyrics. " I feel the skin that seperates us start to fade and when I lie on top of you I'm afraid."

    Regarding _ symbol:
    sometimes it replaces "forbidden" symbols in filenames (such as ? / \ : < > etc.)
    So if somebody wrote How to destroy angels? then the question mark could've turned into _

    "the skin that separates us"

    Does this have to do with skin colour & race?

    Or

    Does this have to do with being released from from your body; becoming concious & even physical on a different level or in some other plane?


    "There is a voice inside of me"

    Is this mediumship? There is a track called "Speaking in tounges"... related?



    Why doesn't the person telling the story want to hear the message? Well she does I'm guessing, but she doesn't want to hear what it has to say... Danger? Too difficult to handle the message?


    Does this video have more going on than simply showing off a reel to reel?

    I'm enjoying the track. Nothing groundbreaking, but I expect it to fit in better when surrounded by the EP and LP. Nice to have to new music either way.

    Also, I feel the reason the download link is available is because A) HTDA can control the quality of the 'release' and foreboding file sharing ; B) they are smart enough (and hopefully kind enough) to know that it's inappropriate to ask for their listeners to shell out three times for the same song (single, EP, LP); and C) Trent's projects have a tendency to surface this way, so it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

    Lastly, I'm having fun with the criticism because it sounds like the same critique we have heard of Trent for the past 10 years. E.g., "This track doesn't climax", "The lyrics are horrid", "Not what I expected, therefore, it's trbl". To each their own and if you don't dig it, that's cool; but it's still funny to hear the same critique of every Trent release in the past decade (not to mention people forming concrete opinions within 24 hours of a release).

    I just didn't like HTDA EP as much as recent NIN works and even TR/AR soundtracks, hence no urge to listen to the song immediately. This wouldn't be the case if it was new NIN song.

    One of my favourite examples: HD, so the audio is good, with the music video in a PIP, probably at around the resolution it was broadcast in anyway.



    Also, this is the first HTDA track with forefront vocals from Trent, isn't it? Sign of the future?
