The new NIN instrumental album is available for Download. You can get the 9-track album (Ghosts I) for free or you can get the full 36 track album for only $5. There are other versions available through NIN website.
This is TOTALLY the wave of the future, and Trent Reznor gets it. He realizes that people are going to get his music one way or the other, and the only way people are going to pay for it is if they don't think they are getting screwed.
I'm usually very selective on what I buy, but not with NIN. And for only $5 I went ahead and got the full album without hearing it. Even if it sucks (it won't) it's only $5.
