    It's damn gorgeous, and you know it.

    THIS is too many variants:

    Lol, I don't pay that much attention to lyrics and am not the best with religious imagery anyway. :P (Like, only right now am I realizing what this "three-day weekend" refers to!! Ohh!!)

    So why is Tyler who produces his own albums going to work with somebody else at this point when he is now in his prime. Does the person who has their own musical,media and fashion empire need to change anything? Not really. You guys really want the hypebeasts coming for NIN? No, I dont think you want that at all.

    I think this is what Taylor thinks about treading into the dark.

    I'm 41. There isn't much of ANYTHING new that grabs me these days. In the past ten years or so, I've seriously gotten into five or six new bands. My wife is the same way. Billie's debut is one of our favorite albums of the past decade. Hell, it's one of my favorite albums, PERIOD.
    Sure, I get that she's trendy, and that she had a LOT of industry push. And, of course, music is subjective: we obviously might not like the same things.

    But I wouldn't write her off just because she's so popular. Her production, (all done by her brother, with whom she was homeschooled,) is gorgeous. The songwriting is top notch. The lyrics are eerie and dark. And her voice is inimitable.

    If you've heard the record and don't like it, that's what that is. But if you're just writing her off because she seems too trendy, or looks like an "industry plant," I'd seriously urge you to check that first album out on a nice pair of headphones.
    I admit that i haven't - i'll give it a listen - thanks!

    Picked up another copy from a local shop in Chicago. I checked the barcode to see which variant they ordered and its the black with signed insert. Wonder if they just wanted to surprise customers.

    Tyler didn't do ALL the production on his last record. He allowed two other producers on the record: they each got to do one track.
    That being said, he's certainly not in NEED of a special guest producer, and I think Finneas would throw hands before letting any producer near a Billie Eilish track.

    this Halsey thing, though, it could lead to some remixes, at least, right?

    Ugh, I miss the days of every NIN record resulting in Trent sending stems to his friends to see what they come up with (as well as doing his own remixes) and then putting that out as a full release.

    I also miss the days of NIN records.

    So I already loved the song, but I just can't get over how much more intensity there is when "I am not a woman, I'm a god" is sung live:


    (this came from the Moment House performance, but ignore the bizarre edit, and Portuguese subtitles, if you will...)

    It does make me wonder if they purposely held back the vocals on the studio track, especially during the final chorus, for some reason...

    i think the vocals are byproduct of their working style - they had that song and then made a contrasting instrumental to those pop and sweet vocals

    I generally agree, which is why I find the end of IanawIag so unusual. That last chorus could be much more forward in the mix, but it isn't. But it is in this live version!

    I could be completely off-base here, but my impression was that someone posted about how they wanted an Instrumentals version of the album, and it sort of got picked up as a rumor. I don't think there was ever any indication that such a thing existed. (Again, could be wrong, though.)

    Sorry to be effectively reposting this a mere two days later, but they just released the official live performance of "I am not a woman, I'm a god" from the Moment House event. It's definitely worth a watch:

    In the first 24 hours of release someone made crappy instrumentals using that website that strips out the center channel/vocals. Those triggered the rumor that something legit was out there.

    A while back in this thread people were talking about who TRAR should work with next in this new realm... I had someone in mind but I couldn't remember her name. Tonight I took the time to "do my own research" and found her name.

    She's a NOLA native, Dawn Richards. She is legit and would be a great fit as she is, what I think is TRAR's most important qualifiers, authentic with her views and music now that she is solo on her own. Don't get me wrong I'd still love to see a new nin and htda project first and foremost.... and working with bands that are related (Like the recent HEALTH project and Danny Elfman.)

    Well, fuck me.
    A lot of this album wound up growing on me, after all.

    I gave it another spin after watching the interview, and wound up digging it more.
