Couple of tracks dont do it for me, but overall im liking this quite a bit...and this is coming from someone who only listened to TDS in full for the first time this year...
TDS requires a few weeks of contemplating but everyone explores NIN on their own time when they are ready.
but yeah i can agree, some of them are a little radio friendly/pop-y, but others are nice. sometimes i get annoyed at his constantly reoccurring themes but i think im just being whiny. its more sequenced though, like he's trying to hearken back to older industrial days. just given the way of the market, label he was with (Columbia) for the release...it just seems rather polished and clean.
second I still have itunes on a computer because I still have an ipod touch I don't use much, and that's what I tried to use. but it didn't work. i click the link and it takes me to the artist page for NIN and nothing happens and there's no prompt or and streaming player I can see - hit play on itunes, nothing, tried entering the link as a stream and playing it, nothing.
