About this album

The Slip (also known as Halo 27) is the eighth major studio release by American Industrial rock act Nine Inch Nails. The album was released free of charge on May 5, 2008 via digital download on the official Nine Inch Nails website.

The album was released on CD in the United States and Canada on July 22, 2008. The album was released as a six-panel digipack which contained (in addition to the album itself) a 24 page booklet, a sticker pack, and a DVD with live performances of 1,000,000, Letting You, Discipline, Echoplex, and Head Down. This package was limited to 250,000 numbered units worldwide

The album was made available without any prior notice or advertisement, and in a similar fashion as the band’s previous release, Ghosts I–IV, released two months earlier. The album was produced by Trent Reznor alongside Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder. The album features vocals and traditional song structures, unlike its 2008 counterpart Ghosts I-IV.

Much like Ghosts I-IV, the album was released under a Creative Commons license, allowing fans to remix and reuse all or part of the album non-commercially. A tour for the album, entitled “Lights in the Sky 2008”, began in late July and took place over most of North America and South America.

    This album feels just as timeless as some of his older stuff, but it's also incredibly dull in places.

    This album took everything I love about industrial music and added a strong and groovy twist to it. I like that. :-)

    Solid Album, Some really awesome tracks hidden on here, Great continuation of the With Teeth / Year Zero 2000s sound.

    I admit, at first play I thought it was kinda crappy. Then I tried again after my Downward Spiral-obsession had faded a bit and now I'm starting to consider if this is NIN's second best album. I love the sound of it!! This is an album where the songs really fit perfectly together (those drums <3) + the cover fits perfectly to the music.

    I never realized how fantastic this album truly is. It's something great to listen to with the bass turned up a little higher than normal and headphones, to really pick up the sound. I am quite impressed.
