NIN’s new album is called “Year Zero”.
I’ve been following the Year Zero Alternate Reality Game since I first heard of it in late February. In early April the album leaked to the Internet, and yesterday I finally purchased a copy of my own on the release date.
This is the only physical CD that I’ve purchased in the past 3-4 years, and it’s well worth the $14.95 (@Borders) price. Not only is the “backstory” of this concept album well done, the ARG that ties in with it is simply AMAZING.
As for the music, it will sit alongside SoM’s A Slight Case of Overbombing as one of my favorite albums. I’ve been listening to it for over a week now, and haven’t gotten tired of it yet.
