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.

Ok, first let's just all say together "Thank you, Trent, for a free track!" (We are, for the moment, ignoring the fact that most of us have already pre-ordered and paid for it in album form, but I digress....)

After hearing the live version (and liking it) on various YouTube vids, finally getting a clean studio version has upped the quality, in my opinion. Trent doesn't keep a specific style for very long and anybody complaining that "this doesn't sound like the old Nine Inch Nails" is right - it sounds like the new Nine Inch Nails.

And it makes perfect sense. His last series of albums was How To Destroy Angels, which focused on more electronica. Now, I do kinda wish some tracks from those albums had been saved for a Nine Inch Nails album down the way (BBB and PARASITE in particular, but really most of the first EP) but whatever - this has the same kind of throwback PRETTY HATE MACHINE electronica that CAME BACK HAUNTED had and, as someone who considers YEAR ZERO to be his favorite NIN album, I highly approve.

Since HESITATION MARKS started out as just a few tracks for a mandatory BEST OF NINE INCH NAILS album, it will be interesting to hear what Trent gets interested in next and how that might shape his next sound and project when it's not accidental.

Oh, what dangerous waters in which I tread when I say- Finally, the promise of Pretty Hate Machine has been fulfilled! For me and probably no one else, I fell out of love with Trent and his nine inches after his debut moment. After PHM, it all seemed so Broken and a big Downward Spiral of noisy chaos. Maybe I was getting too old for things that went to 11. I would ask Reznor, in my head, "Why not just make 10 louder?" And for me, Pretty Hate Machine was the perfect 10.

Well, Copy of a... is 10 made louder. This is the follow-up sound for which I have been waiting. I can't wait for a copy of Hesitation Marks (and by "copy" I mean a legally purchased downloadable copy, of course. Don't be so Fragile)!

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.
