Quote by X-sah:
I was vaguely amused when I read a post by Reznor bitching at record companies and encouraging people to download his own album for nothing.

It was such an obvious attempt to cater to the rebellious crowd it wasn't funny.


No see, this, you have no idea why Reznor actually did it

Okay then, why did it do it if it's not the obvious reason?

interscope pissed him off so he split with them, then released the slip free as a fuck you to them

plus its not even just that, its that reznor realizes the industry is changing and put the album for free on his website so that it would be like radiohead's in rainbows a year ago

the album is also available in stores now too so anyone who wants to support it without being a "rebel" can, or for those who actually still care about physical copies in todays market

Yeah, and like George Michael, he released one of his albums for free but left a charity donation link on the download site incase anyone felt guilty and wanted to pay or something

aka he's been pretty much RAEPd by every record company he's ever been with, and the instant he could get out of his record contract he did (similar to Radiohead in this way though I don't think they've had quite the history of trouble Reznor has; it's telling that both of them got out of their contracts with remix albums).


But yeah, it's also because of the changing market. Albums as a means of making profit is pretty much dead, Reznor has been pretty open with his view that albums are now primarily a way to get people to buy tickets to live shows, which is how musicians make a living. Radiohead after they put out In Rainbows backpedaled a bit, "it was only a marketing ploy, etc.", but Reznor is pretty hardcore into the release-new-shit-frequently-for-low-cost-so-people-buy-tickets model.

If Reznor made any profit off of The Slip (or Ghosts) it's because if I remember correctly he recorded it all himself over the course of like two weeks in his own studio in his house (I think it went from un-mastered recordings with no album artwork and the like to finished files being put up for download over the course of a weekend or something, it's pretty crazy).

Eminem should've shot you for that autrocity and Linkin Park should've sued you as well.


What if it was like..eminem and linkin park all shoot each other, and nobody lives. Like the end of reservoir dogs but steve buscemi's character doesn't survive (its hard to tell but yeah he does and I think tarantino confirms it in the commentary..or maybe it was an interview, I havent heard the commentary since high school)
