    Cool song but where’s the explosion of angst?

    Not a big fan of any of these new songs at all. I haven’t really enjoyed an album from these guys since With Teeth and I don’t think that’s going to change with this album. I guess I’ll have to check out the studio versions but I’m not really into Came Back Haunted either.

    Yeah, Came Back Haunted sounded overly electronic. I like the NIN that featured more instruments (guitar, drums) in addition to keyboard & electronic. Even the free release “The Slip” was overly electronic. Discipline was a badass tune though, but the rest of it didn’t really grab me.
