Editorial Reviews

Two CD set by Nine Inch Nails of their 2008 release, Ghosts I - IV, a 36 track instrumental collection. Almost two hours of music composed and recorded over an intense ten week period in the fall of 2007. Ghosts I - IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, infamous for long delays between albums, sure has been productive lately. 2007 saw Reznor release the critically acclaimed "Year Zero" and its' follow-up "Year Zero Remixed." In addition, last year Reznor produced Saul Williams' "The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust." Now, out of nowhere, with no advance notice, Reznor is back with NIN's sixth album, the instrumental "Ghosts I-IV."

"A soundtrack for daydreams," is how Reznor sums up the new album...and that, I feel, is the best way to appreciate the new NIN. Rather than listening to this album as background music while driving or doing housework, "Ghosts I-IV" is best appreciated with relaxed, yet concentrated listening. Lie in bed or on the sofa, relaxed, and immerse yourself with this CD. Just sort of daydream--meditate, think about whatever...and let "Ghosts I-IV" be the soundtrack...

And as the mood of the album changes, allow your mood to flow with the album...try to get lost in the music.

Some have commented that "Ghosts I-IV" sounds similar in style to the instrumental music from "The Fragile," (1999) but I don't know if it's all that accurate to say that. While the instrumental music from "the Fragile" sort of held the vocal compositions from that CD together like glue, "Ghosts I-IV" is a little more "out there." It can, therefore, be seen as a mosaic--of several different styles--piano compositions, industrial beats, the avant-garde--all mixed together, with no real dominant flavor overpowering the rest. And while the album is all-over-the-place, treading many territories, everything works; "Ghosts I-IV" takes so many twists-and-turns-its always interesting. At the same time, with almost two hours of music to absorb, "Ghosts I-IV" is best appreciated with repeated listens--to fully appreciate all its' rich textures and intricacy.

Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails (they are more or less synonymous) have been on an amazing creative surge that shows no signs of abating. With Teeth marked a decisive turning point away from navel-gazing and outward to social criticism. Year Zero took it even further, coalescing into a conceptual album every bit as fascinating (in its own way) as anything by Pink Floyd. Now...this.

Anyone who has read my other reviews knows my musical tastes run the gamut from Renaissance to Industrial. There are only two kinds of music in my world - good and bad. Still, I never thought I would hear an album that is at once so eclectic and yet so pure in its artistic persuasion as Ghosts I-IV.

How to describe the music? In 36 tightly structured, highly disciplined instrumental tracks, Reznor and company create a vivid soundscape that begins in melancholy, travels through industrial wastelands, and ends in transcendence. It is an epic song cycle without words, as perfectly constructed as anything by Bartok or Berg - but in a set of styles that defy easy categorization. Frequently ambient, often noisy like the best NIN cuts from years past, the sonic tapestry requires many listenings to absorb. There is real, honest-to-God Classical-type form in this work - repeated motifs, variations, developing ideas that morph unexpectedly.

It's a breathtaking work. Some NIN fans will undoubtedly feel left behind. Others will feel like they have suddenly taken a breath of fresh air.

Approaching his mid-forties, clean, sober, and maturing, Trent Reznor has, I think, only begun to truly come into his own as an artist. It's an amazing thing to behold. Spend the five bucks, download some great tunes, and feel the magic.

Ghosts I - IV is a great work of music that I think is going to appeal to more than just the hardcore NIN fan.

It's hard to imagine being shocked by anything Nine Inch Nails puts out, but I would have to say I was at least surprised by this new album from Trent Reznor's brainchild. NIN has always been somewhat of an experimental outlet for Trent. Yet even as minimal of a change it is in theory to go instrumental, it's the actual material here that I find so different and so interesting.

For starters, there is much more of a progression from song to song than on other NIN albums. Even as an instrumental work this seems more like a concept album than anything else he's ever done. There's a full range of songs and tones here, almost like an opera or a symphony. This is truly mesmerizing.

I also enjoyed the fact that so much of this album is more "mellow" than what NIN usually does. It produces something that I feel is almost more accessible than most previous albums. Anybody who is into Jazz and even people who are into newer classical music could probably get into this.

And that's the other thing, the pricing for this is awesome! Not only is there an MP3 download for only $5 but you can get the whole set on disk for $10. When you consider what's been going on in the record industry lately this is a breath of fresh air. Part of that might be because of the specialty nature of this recording. But I think most people who heard individual tracks wouldn't even know it was NIN. If anything the appeal is broader for this instrumental set.

You can download other stuff including a pdf document from the NIN website. This is a great set that I plan on listening to and studying for a while.

Hope you like it as much as I did.

Enjoy!
