    It just occured to me that the physical, expanded release of the Tension tour never actually got released, other than the LA show being up on YouTube. Anybody know what happened to that?

    Was gonna buy the Year Zero Remix cd/dvd digipak but it's like 60 dollars now. It has the multi tracks for Year Zero, which I was gonna use for remixing

    This has grown on me a lot since it came out.

    Initially, when it was described as a "fairly impenetrable" and "unfriendly" record, my expectations got totally fucked. I expected some Broken-type shit. Not the Actual Events is, of course, its own music. I still think that it isn't particularly "impenetrable" compared to a lot of other Nine Inch Nails music, but I understand why the word was used.

    The droning, distorted music with spoken word mixed really low is a pretty great sound in hindsight. I just needed to re-calibrate my expectations.

    I like the last two songs. The mixing on the closer means it takes effort for me to enjoy

    It's being advertised in the store and through news outlets as an LP. Expect long-as-fuck songs.

    Yeah, but maybe more like a just-over-EP album with 30min/5min-per-track-average. I'll-just-write-like-this-now.
    I think there was never an official statement. One of these projects that's delayed into non-existence.

    EDIT

    SNIPPET.

    Drum 'n Bass-y, The Perfect Drug-vibe.

    Funny, because you always hear that Trent "hates" that song. But yeah, it's 9sec snippet with a bit of a similarity...

    Maybe it will meet the requirements to be labelled an album, but I think insistently saying it isn't an EP is more likely just a marketing gimmick.

    That’s what I’m thinking, similar to that latest Weeknd release.

    God Break Down The Door


    The closest comparison for me would be Bowie's Blackstar x NIN rather than some previous NIN work. Love how Trent sings in this one, sounds like new territory for him.

    EDIT

    ...there is this one sound in there that sounds like the first tone of the #*! door bell here and it startles me every time.

    This coming from the dude who doesn't make his shit available on all streaming services cause of an Apple contract. Yeah it's classification as an EP that makes me unable to listen to Add Violence. Sure. Even fucking Not the Actual Events which I love I mostly just stream off YouTube.

    Also the dude who's always ranting about how the album art form and experience he grew up with is dying, because no-one commits to albums anymore

    If someone else of his stature had done this, T-Rez would tear into them on Twitter or in the press

    Who cares if it's an album or an EP. I'm never going to complain about an active Nine Inch Nails. Trent could release one song every few months and I'd gobble that shit up and pay for it on whatever music platform he tells me to buy it from. Not to mention, we're getting an actual NIN tour for the first time since 2013/2014. I'm not really counting the I Can't Seem To Wake Up 2017 shows since it was only 8 shows in North America and was like a mini tour/test run for this year.

    We out here eatin' good and people are really complaining about whether this is actually an EP or an album? fuck outta here.

    your boy Trent would complain, is what I'm saying -- this is totally the kind of thing he would bitch someone out for

    However, it technically can be defined as an album, so he has that as an out. :)

    Not sure if anyone here ended up standing in line for the In The Physical World Pre-Sale, but the two tracks they were previewing in the merch area were miles beyond God Break Down The Door. And I LOVE God Break Down The Door.
