    Okay, first, on Tuesday, Trent and co. mastered a new track called Discipline. He released it to radio on Wednesday, and allowed it to be downloaded for free on Wednesday night. You can also download the multitrack files for the song for remixing, which leads me to…

    http://remix.nin.com.

    First, I’ve never given it much thought because I wasn’t really interested in fan mixes. But, not only is it a way for fans to share thoughts on stuff like that, but Trent also put out instrumental versions of tracks from the Downward Spiral and Year Zero. It’s one thing to hear these with lyrics, but some of the instrumental versions are better than the originals. He also put out a lot of rare tracks and remixes from previous singles and such.

    Rusty, I think you’d be interested in this, because not only can you listen to it on the website, you can download them, for free, straight from the website as 256 kb/s mp3s. Now I ask you, what other artists do this? Trent’s so fucking cool…

    Yeah, now go to http://www.nin.com. The new album, The Slip, is there to download, for free. He says:

    Has anyone ever done this? Don’t think so.

    I have to give it to Trent not only does he create thought provoking and enjoyable music he gives a fuck about the fans. I have yet to see a commercial band do this to date as much as he has. This type of thing is usually only seen in the underground and even that is getting to be even more rare as pressing prices and hosting prices get hirer and bands get more greedy.

    Thanks for posting this Rob!

    A whole album? Yeah, don’t think so. One song, okay maybe, but not a whole album.

    For a while, In Rainbows was available for download in full.

    I think it’s awesome, don’t get me wrong. I’ll download the album tomorrow.

    I seem to remeber a article about them doing that. It was like a free will donation you could just take it or give them a buck or some thing….though my memory is hazy on this.

    Yeah, you could pay as little as .01 for it, but it was also only available in 128 kpbs mp3. And, no guilt required for the nin release.

    Yeah Robbie, I meant to ask you a question about Reznor. Everyone once in awhile, I’ll hear a song in a commercial or in a TV show and I’ll want to download the song. The latest was from the new Nike commercials. Apparently, the guy who wrote the song is a poet (black guy, lots to say, etc.) and wanted to do some music. His name is Saul Williams and the name of the song is “List of Demands.” I did some looking into it and saw that the driving force behind most of the guy’s album was Trent Reznor. I just thought that was interesting.

    Yeah, I really like Saul Williams. He’s like, one of the few black people in entertainment that take a very “look in the mirror before you chastise anyone else” kind of view. I listened to some of his stuff, and was kinda eh. Then Trent did his last record, and even though he does get a bit preachy sometimes, I dig it pretty well. The new album is “The Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust”, available for $5 over at http://niggytardust.com.

    So, what do you think about this whole Saul Williams thing? (It was one of those ‘understood’ questions, Bry, damn!)

    I read that Trent was rather disappointed by the small number of people that were actually willing to pay for the Williams album, but it could be that the people that were giving it a try were hoping for more of a Nine Inch Nails type musical experience and not so much rap. I, for one, can’t stand rap.
