Trent Reznor one-ups himself.

Big ups to Trent Reznor for not only putting out his new album for free on the Internet but for also

1. Providing lossy copies of respectable quality (V0 Lame).

2. Providing lossless copies in FLAC, M4A, and WAV.

3. Using bittorrent for distribution. Huge improvement over the way that Ghosts I-IV and Niggy Tardust were distributed. Although those were really cool, server problems prevented a lot of people from downloading for a while and direct downloads are a lot more finnicky for people without the best connections.

First he outdid Radiohead, then he outdid himself. Regardless of whether you're still into Nine Inch Nails (or never were), you have to admit that this is pretty cool.

Get your copy here.

1. 999,999
2. 1,000,000
3. letting you
4. discipline
5. echoplex
6. head down
7. lights in the sky
8. corona radiata
9. the four of us are dying
10. demon seed
