Nine Inch Nails released a surprise album today! They didn’t even release information to their fan club in advance. Its called Ghosts I-IV and there are several ways to legally get it.
Their servers have been slammed today. It took me a couple tries to download the nine free tracks. Then I paid the $5 to download all 36 songs and just downloaded them with Bit Torrent from The Pirate Bay. I’ll probably download again from the official site once their servers have recovered.
I have no problem downloading them with Bit Torrent since I paid for them; but a lot of tracking companies want the counts from the official site so that they can get a more accurate count.
Its very, very mellow. Very ambient and experimental. Instrumental only, no vocals. Awesome to have in the background while working on something that requires brain power.
Here are all of the ways to get it.
