One of my Favorite NIN Albums.


To a degree, Trent's work has always implied innovation, experimentation, and sound design. Like Skinny Puppy, there are always tiny, texture nuances embedded in his music. The album is all about letting the intuitive side of an artist take over and guide the music, those moments of inspiration are then arranged into an accessible structure.
However, nothing ever strays far into abstraction as it potentially could, or as it did on The Downward Spiral. It's still coherent and obvious music. Majority of the "voices" still come from what one can expect as instruments, whether traditional, electronic or handmade. There is some Foley audio, Sampling and maybe a Field Recording, but still, most are instruments "voices". All of which, are short and sweet, your patience is never tested. If you are a conservative NIN fan, then obviously this album isn't for you. However, if you enjoy Progressive Electronic Music, that boldy pushes the creative boundaries, and takes music in an interesting direction, than this album is definitely for you.

Ghosts is an album you can just play and close your eyes to as the sound evokes imaginery. "A Soundtrack For Day Dreams".

p.s. If you like this, check out Amon Tobin, Ben Frost, Lustmord, Tim Hecker, Fennesz, Autechre, Seefeel and Alva Noto.



Love this album very easy too zone out too.

About Nine Inch Nails

With shadowy beauty and searing intensity, Nine Inch Nails—the long-running project of multi-instrumentalist/producer/songwriter Trent Reznor—expanded the scope of mainstream music. Scrutinizing humanity, relationships, and society, Reznor shapes deeply internalized thoughts into accessible, exciting sound. 1989’s Pretty Hate Machine brought this introspective curiosity and synth-heavy industrial rock to a broad audience, while landmark releases The Downward Spiral and The Fragile stunned with coarse guitars and striking ferocity. Nine Inch Nails is continuously evolving—experimenting with new formats and ideas, including the turbulent 2007 concept album Year Zero, about a dystopian futuristic USA, and the textured minimalism of 2013’s Hesitation Marks. Unbounded by convention, Reznor has upended relationships with labels in order to safeguard his artistic freedom and forged creative alliances with outsider champions like David Bowie, Saul Williams, and David Lynch, while longtime collaborator Atticus Ross became the only other official member of Nine Inch Nails in 2016.
