    I'm usually up on all things nine inch nails, but I'd have to admit TR snuck this one past me when I wasn't looking. Anyway, new double album, if you want to call it that, of 36 instrumental tracks; 9 per volume (hence 1-4). Pretty cool all around, muscially, but what I imagine will be the subject of most of the talk about this is the release method.

    With zero fanfare, Ghosts I was uploaded on a few bit torrent servers in DRM-free MP3s for free. If you liked what you heard, you have these options:

    $5 Download - All 36 tracks in a variety of digital formats including a 40 page PDF. The download options are 320 kbps LAME encoded, FLAC Lossless, & Apple Lossless...which is nice, since I load everything into iTunes and don't have to bother with converting (or, more importantly, learning what i need to do to convert them)

    $10 2 CD Set shipped April 8, 2008, but while you're waiting, you get access to a one time use download of the files to do whatever with.

    $75 Deluxe Edition Package - Hardcover slipcase containing: 2 audio CDs, 1 data DVD with all 36 tracks in multi-track format, and a Blu-ray disc with Ghosts I-IV in high-definition 96/24 stereo and accompanying slideshow, shipped May 1, 2008, plus the one time use download link to get the files ahead of time.

    $300 - Ultra Deluxe Limited Edition Package - Well, this already sold out, so the description is gone...bascially it includes everything from options 1-3, a Vinyl version of the release, a nice book of the photography, and each of the 2500 sets is hand numbered & autographed by T Rez.

    On top of all that, this release has been put out with a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share Alike license, so you're free to remix it, copy, distribute, display, and perform it, etc.

    Anyhow, they got the servers back up and going after the traffic of day 1 killed it. Downloaded all 600 MB of the Apple lossless version and am currently on track 34 of 36...if you liked the instrumentals on "Still" and to a lesser degree, The Fragile, then you really should be downloading this now, and letting my thread sink like an anchor that it normally is ( :p @Eeth).
