First Track, First Time - Nine Inch Nails - "Ghosts"
Artist: Nine Inch Nails
Track: 1 Ghosts I
Venue: Work computer, eating pizza, bad gas.
Mmmmmm slightly distorted pianos. Is this Reznor's own "Selected Ambient Works"? It definitely works. Its moody and it sounds like the outros to a thousand Nine Inch Nails songs, before bleeding seamlessly into the next track, a wash of feedback and wind to match the huge dunes on the "album" cover.
Its cool to see Trent going for this kind of atmosphere in the kind of "pay what you will, pay a lot and get some awesome shit" arena that is (happily) destroying the music business.
The album is two hours long though, so its anyone's guess as to how listenable the whole experience will be.
