I bought the $10 version of Ghosts I-IV
. Actually, it's $16.99 including shipping, but OK, it's a Nine Inch Nails
album so I'm not going to complain too much. But I tried last night, I tried this morning, and I tried twice tonight, and can't get my download to work. Got to 9%, and then... poof. No music for me.
At any rate, very very happy that the hyped surprise was a new album. Kinda wish there were lyrics - I like lyrics, and I like Trent's voice. Looking forward to hearing parts II-IV though.
Sigh. Well, at least a couple of things arrived from Amazon today: Begin To Hope
and Made in the Dark
The Regina Spektor album had me worried at first. The first few tracks are very light and on first listen kind of poppy. This version of Samson
comes nowhere close to matching the shattering beauty of the version on Songs
. But it starts to loosen up around track seven, Après Moi
and it's still sounding good at track 10, Edit
. Seems like money well spent.
