This review is from: The Slip + DVD (Audio CD)
For a person who only released three full length albums from 1989 to 2005, Trent Reznor must be making up for lost time as The Slip is album number four since 2005s With Teeth and second in the space of a couple of months following March's 2008 release of instrumental classic Ghosts i-iv. That's not including a remix album and a live dvd/blu ray.

This album got its physical release in July 2008 after its free download release in may 2008, and its classic nin, where as ghosts was all instrumental The Slip has complete vocal tracks and they are brilliant. 1,000,000 and Letting You are two of the best songs to start any nin album. They hit you like a freight train and would become a staple of that summers brilliant Lights in the Sky tour, starting the show every night. Your then hit by Discipline which has a real disco dance feel to it, Echoplex and Head Down are real growers that will have you coming back for repeated listens. They are followed by the instrumental part of the album, Lights in the Sky which has a very quietly sung lyrics, Corona Radiata continues the Ghosts theme. The Four of us are Dying wouldn't have been out of place on 1999s album The Fragile. The album finishes with the brilliant Demon Seed which started life as Ghost 38 on the deluxe edition of Ghosts i-1v.

The cd also comes with a bonus dvd that has the band playing five songs (1,000,000, letting you, discipline, echoplex and head down) from rehearsals and is a nice bonus. all the cds are numbered from 1 to 250,000 and is a limited release, so get your copy before it gets rare and expensive.
