    We are pattern building machines. The first time I listened to Radiohead's "In Rainbows" is shortly after I'd been diagnosed with cancer (and before they'd operated and discovered the extent of it). For me, "Videotape" is the most depressing song ever written. I can't hear it without all of those feelings from that first listen intertwined.

    halo twenty eight. hesitation marks. 09.03.2013

    I'm skipping the new tracks when I listen to the current boots: not because I don't want to spoil the album, but because they aren't grabbing me as much as the newly arranged old stuff.(In particular terrible lie which I can't get out of my head). As much as its refreshing to hear a new sanctified, I honestly prefer the original. I'm still when I'm going to first hear this new album and how that will impact my impression of it. I might be on honeymoon.

    Unlikely, but I've been thinking about something. How neat would an EP featuring a handful of rearranged/re-recorded, primarily non-singles PHM tracks be? As in, like: Sanctified, Kinda I Want To, That's What I Get, Only Time, Ringfinger. All 2013'd. But I guess fuck you, Steve.

    Also, fuck me, I'll be getting my HesMa on the 30th already. Been kinda out of the loop lately (bar watching every bit of live material possible), so is this the set Euro release date? Only three weeks and two days. Friday, skip school with my girl, take the bus downtown, storm the record store, take the clerk by his throat and scream WHERE IS IT.

    Had a dream last night that Everything was the next single off of HM. I think that means I'm excited or need to get the hell off these boards.

    Again, though, nothing is like a pure first listen. I couldn't deny that.
    This makes me think of Depeche Mode's Sounds of the Universe. I adored that album and before its complete leak, some of the tracks had leaked, but in demo form. So in the end, on my first listen through, even the songs I had already heard were different. Let me add that when I heard the album opener "In Chains" I got chills on my first listen, it hit a string for me, and I was excited from then on and I still adore that album.

    I think some artists should concider this...I mean leaking demos and then surprising everyone with which direction you took the songs in with the final album versions. I thought it was great!

    First listens for me don't really count because the novelty of something new and shiny and different (especially after a lengthy gap) can prevent me from objectively forming an opinion about it. There are albums and songs that I absolutely HATED upon first listen, but after letting it soak in for a bit and listening to it
    a few more times I changed my mind.

    Is it just me or these new songs that have been played live do not sound that minimalistic? are these just the live versions or does it it sound like this on the record?

    Just checked on iTunes, it looks like you have your answer:

    I'm really interested in hearing black noise, as well as the rest of the album, obviously. But hearing that title makes me think of the end of hurt, and since HM is inspired lyrically and thematically by TDS... You know, I should just stop before I'm embarrassed by this post a month from now.

    I want this thang. I wonder if I can pay for it with a Chinese bank account, as I'm currently living in China.

    As soon as I saw the Todd Rundgren remix, I could tell it was a fake.

    Then I went to iTunes myself to see if the real listing was up.....

    So, after mulling over the pre-release for quite a few days, and seeing todays NIN hotline update about the track listing for the remix album I decided now was as good as time as ever to pre-order the album... until I went to the nin.com store and they were asking for $12.99 to ship a CD by standard postage... really?? $13 to ship a CD to Canada? That seems steep. I can ship a CD to the USA for $5...

    I emptied my shopping card after that... I wonder, will the deluxe CD readily be available in store on Tuesday Sept 3rd, or is it a NIN.com exclusive??

    Part of me thinks I should be ordering the CD directly through nin.com to support the band directly, and not buy it from a massive retail CD chain, but for that gauging on shipping, it's almost worth it to just hold off til release date to buy a physical copy in the store.

    EDIT: I just answered my own question... HMV will have the Deluxe CD for purchase on September 3rd for $25 canadian. So it's cheaper for me to buy it locally.

    Now the question is, how many copies will my local store actually get... hmm...

    I'm not worried about buying locally as much as getting the best deal and I got the deluxe edition through Amazon.

    Yeah, I wonder what he means by minimalistic, because to me, what we've heard so far sure isn't. I don't mind though

    I have a feeling that minimalism really translates to "shut the fuck up. This isn't going to be broken, TDS, or fragile. It's been over a decade, so stop expecting that. Also stop commenting on the band's Facebook updates that I should go shoot heroin and make harder music."

    P-orridge mix could be interesting. He just needs some carter-tutti mixes to complete the set now.

    anybody else feels the photobook is the main attraction factor for "deluxe version", rather than remixes?

    I'm too stunned and stoked to know what to say... P-Orridge?

    Brilliant! This means that the Award for Weirdest NIN Remix will from now on go to Genesis. Sorry Dreijer!

    Well I'm a fan of Russel Mills since The Downward Spiral, so in my case yeah, I wasn't in it for the interview and haven't cared much for remixes since Things Falling Apart.
    So yeah, you bet that Mills art-filled booklet's ass is mine. MINE !

    Hear hear. apart from some miscellaneous tracks (whoo Butch Vig Last), and most of FDTS, NIN remixes generally don't blow me away. Russel Mills adds a ton of atmosphere and sets the mood just right for the releases he's been involved with; the book is far and away the reason I'm going for the DE. Really stoked that he's involved again. Loving the layout similarities between the HM deluxe version and the original TDS artwork, btw.

    What if that private gig will see the album being premiered, you know, like a live stream on itunes, or they'll play the entire new album...maybe that's why it wasn't announced before...or maybe I'm seeing too much into this...but it would have some logic...yeah? no?

    Please, let us hear that new album, I'm beginning to lose my sanity

    with trent re-adopting the whole TDS aesthetic with the artwork/feel for the new album, i was kinda half-hoping that one of the bonus remixes would be a j.g. thirwell remix. but having p-orridge do one really isn't too far off! todd rundgren is definitely a very left field choice as well. i never thought i'd hear a todd rundgren remix of a nine inch nails track in my life! just makes me wonder that if trent is planning a remix album of 'hesitation marks', what other surprise remix artists he may have in store for that??

    I'd love to see a full remix album. The time around TDS/FDTS is generally very memorable and defining for NIN. The aesthetic was really nailed (heh) and the style of music was somehow very cohesive, no matter if you were dealing with an original Nine Inch Nails song, an Aphex Twin original or a B-side. Everything seemed to fit into a larger whole and tell one story, and Russell Mills' art direction was definitely partly responsible.
