    Yeah I'm gonna take an eBay listing with a pinch of salt considering they don't even have the item yet, and don't even have the Obi on the album art

    You sure that's not just a quirk in the ebay listing?

    Well now this post looks supremely dumb because I didn't realize there was another page.

    Amazon Canada store is about double the price of the .com site (searched ets and didn't see this mentioned). Glad I pre-ordered when it was lower.

    We're now a good amount of the way into February and I can't stop myself from wondering when Welcome Oblivion is going to leak. God, how long has it been since we've had the pleasure of anticipating a Reznor leak from someone not Reznor?

    How does everyone plan on sequencing the tracks once this is out?

    The CD version has a different track order to the vinyl version. Even if you were to slip the two vinyl bonus tracks onto the CD version, you're going to have a third, entirely different track arrangement.

    CD:


    1. "The Wake-Up"
    2. "Keep It Together"
    3. "And The Sky Began To Scream"
    4. "Welcome Oblivion"
    5. "Ice Age"
    6. "On The Wing"
    7. "Too Late, All Gone"
    8. "How Long?"
    9. "Strings And Attractors"
    10. "We Fade Away"
    11. "Recursive Self-Improvement"
    12. "The Loop Closes"
    13. "Hallowed Ground"


    Vinyl:


    1. "The Wake-Up"
    2. "Keep It Together"
    3. "And The Sky Began To Scream"
    4. "Ice Age"
    5. "Welcome Oblivion"
    6. "On The Wing"
    7. "Too Late, All Gone"
    8. "The Province Of Fear"
    9. "How Long?"
    10. "Strings And Attractors"
    11. "Recursive Self-Improvement"
    12. "Unintended Consequences"
    13. "We Fade Away"
    14. "The Loop Closes"
    15. "Hallowed Ground"


    I was thinking of maybe just going with the entire vinyl version arrangement to avoid too much confusion.

    That's what I intended to do once I had the bonus tracks, unless the segues are weird.

    Weird segues are a necessity! One of the main selling points if you will.

    Do we know where the vinyl's sides start and finish?

    I was just planning on ripping the white label CD of the vinyl version.

    Yep. White CD is the definitive version.

    If it's the definitive version, why aren't they distributing it on all the CDs and all the downloads? Wouldn't they want everyone to hear the definitive version? How would it be in their interests to withhold it from the vast majority of consumers of their art?

    It might be the definitive version for us, the people who want all fifteen tracks, but it might not be the definitive version for the band itself (from Rob's response regarding it, I would argue that this is exactly the case); this would bring us right back to the discussion that spanned the last few pages, though.

    ^You mean, like a loop? Heh.

    Hardest, but a fun part for me is going to be where to place Sleep of Reason and Speaking in Tongues as I feel like they would be crucial to an HTDA mix.

    Are we certain that WTO and Ice Age are flipped in each version btw or is it possible that's just a typo?

    That's grabbed from the official press release, so if it's a typo, the onus isn't on ninwiki.

    Just tack them on at the end as "bonus tracks," along with "Province of Fear" and "Unintended Consequences" if you want.

    I'm gonna try a half dozen times listening to each grouping and decide which one I like best. It may be that the vinyl version is too long for my taste; maybe I'll lump Province of Fear and Unintended Consequences in with the extra tracks on An Omen for a little palate cleanser EP. Plus I'll be listening to the CD a lot in the car (didn't Trent say something about how good it sounds in the car on Twitter?) so I might just get stuck on that version. I am both thrilled and slightly irritated that there are different sequences to listen to it because I don't know the best one, and I really want to listen to it the best way.

    WTO and Ice Age would be swapped because of the length of Ice Age, I'd say. Happens sometimes, notably on Panda Bear's Person Pitch: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Person_Pitch#Vinyl

    hahaha...

    no, but really, the album (and title track) are "Welcome Oblivion," not "welcome TO oblivion" so why are people abbreviating it as such?

    The other day, I tried to burn something like a "Crash Course in NIN" for a friend of mine whose soul I plan to win for team Trent... so anyway, at this occasion it occurred to me for the very first time HOW FUCKING HARD IT IS to make a good order/sequence with NIN-songs, especially if you try to balance the hard/pounding songs with the quiet/melancholy stuff; having to deal with all those seques at the beginning and end... so yeah, I can kind of see why making the final tracklist for a new NIN/HTDA-release can be a tough decision.

    Back on topic: I'll do it as I did with The Fragile, having the "CD" rip as my everyday fix and savoring the vinyl version for those very special moments...

    Christ. I can't get over what an awesome deal that vinyl is. Alternate(ish) tracklisting with bonus songs, a CD copy of that same version, and a digital copy that I can rip from the CD. I'd be silly NOT to get in on that.

    Whilst I agree, that totally read like an infomercial

    Didn't they say the site to buy directly from them would be up mid-February? Should be up soon if it is still on schedule.

    I'd assume preorders and tour dates will come at once
