Very good song.

This song gives me some hope that the new album will get back to the NIN that I loved.
Tim Kitchen
His voice sounds great, music is tight, songs are textured with changes throughout.

First, how awesome is Trent Reznor...a free single?! Second, this track grows the more you hear it...as you pick apart the layers that get added and broke down as it reaches its conclusion (leading into the last single, Came Back Haunted). And as with the other songs we've heard from Hesitation Marks, this seems to be a culmination of Nails almost 25 year history. The edgy rock, the danceable grooves, the electronic swirls, the industrial strength...its all there. I will say though, it may take you a few listens to totally appreciate the song, especially if you came in expecting something like Wish. This is a little more Pretty Hate Machine vs Year Zero.

as for the other reviewer, seems pretty narrow minded...and also like they hadn't listened to NIN for the last 6 years. It has always been a shifting evolving sound, with that familiar backbone to it. This is less a rock track and more of an electronic one...but, NIN started out as synth band (PHM). This is far from some boring pointless club crap, this IS Nine Inch Nails. and its FREE. and Just a taste of Hesitation Marks.

Can not wait to see the whole picture, and experience it completely. 9.3.13 can't come soon enough.

Truly amazing song which really shines when played live. I will never understand people who criticize Reznor for exploring different styles. You can't label NIN -- every album is different. Yet, there is something always consistent in the sounds, textures, chord progressions, lyrical themes, etc.

I actually think that this song is quite typical NIN, and I wouldn't be surprised to see this song become the classic concert opener beyond this upcoming tour.

It's been a while since I've enjoyed a NIN song this much (probably Year Zero 6 years ago). It has a techno/industrial feel and reminds me of the Fragile/Pretty Hate Machine.

With that said, this song has a lot more polish than the Broken/Downward Spiral era. The technology used gets rid of any imperfections, which might not be appealing to some fans of that era in NIN. Fans of the harsher side of NIN will probably be disappointed in this track as well as it doesn't have grinding guitars or the use of real drums (very electronic). I'm not one of those fans though and truly enjoyed the layers of sound and lyrics of this song. I can't wait for the rest of the album.

This song is great. It's very distinct from his earlier work, unlike a lot of the (cough) rehash material we've seen from him in recent years. What is familiar is the Fragile era attention to detail in the layering and the texturing of the song. I thin a lot of NIN fans have been waiting more than a decade for something that sounds like this. Even the lyrics are above par for TR. I couldn't be happier with the first two singles. They're have inflated my expectations for the new album to epic proportions.

Nine Inch Nails is proving that their sound can still stay relevant in the everchanging music landscape. Can't wait for the full release. The new remix of Sanctified is awesome, too!

NIN returns to form with a great song that is very reminiscent of their 1st album Pretty Hate Machine. The song is heavy on the synths and is more electric than rock. It is funny how current music artists are now just catching up with what Trent Reznor starting doing back in 1989.

When you listen to a piece of music that switches common perception, can you really judge its value on an A to F scale? And is it fair to judge it quickly, before letting it gestate and develop in your mind? Yes. There are plenty of big name musicians that change up their sound while keeping things interesting. NIN is not all that different from a few really well known, large name, envelope pushing rock artists; Like the long lasting art careers of Radiohead; Rush; or even Pink Floyd. Trent takes listeners to areas unexpected and with a certain amount of confidence and adventurous risk taking. 'Copy of a' does take by surprise while living up to an expectation of high quality we expect in NIN. Big bumpy, bouncy danceable beats are just a portion of what's going on here. More sounds scrape and work their way under your skin and surprises appear, like they do with NIN. If I'm being fair, this song doesn't deviate from NIN in extremely strange and outlandish ways. I was listening for The Slip and, although minimal in spots, this doesn't fit the last album. This song is an intriguing listen that resonates in many unexpected ways. There are hooks and synth notes that are still calculating and the beats are still pulsating, but it's plenty different and interesting enough to challenge and grab at you.

I own every NIN album, and have loved music from all his phases. This song is on the mellower side - I could actually listen to it at work without anyone thinking twice. It has a great beat and is more melodic than some of his music. But it is still NIN, and absolutely fantastic! Looking forward to more songs like this.
