Performer Notes
  • Composer: Trent Reznor.
  • Nine Inch Nails: Alessandro Cortini, Robin Fink, Josh Freese, Trent Reznor.
  • Programmer: Atticus Ross.
  • Audio Mixer: Alan Moulder.
  • Audio Remasterer: Brian Gardner .
  • Mere months after Trent Reznor unveiled the 2008 instrumental collection GHOSTS I-IV online without warning, the Nine Inch Nails frontman issued another independent album out of the blue--a completely free studio album entitled THE SLIP. While not a radical departure from the fuzzed-out dystopia of YEAR ZERO, this 10-track outing does hark back to Reznor's earlier work (most notably THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL), as on the pounding "Discipline," which is tempered by a chiming keyboard melody, and the spare, piano-driven piece "Light in the Sky," a song that showcases the artist's brooding persona. Pithy and immediate, THE SLIP functions as a refreshing counterpoint to NIN's cumbersome 1999 double-disc outing, THE FRAGILE, and easily ranks as one of Trent Reznor's most satisfying endeavors.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.69) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "For listeners who like their music loud and fierce and pissed off at just about everything, there aren't too many better options than THE SLIP."

Rolling Stone (p.94) - Ranked #37 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "[F]illed with granite funk and stark-naked confessions."

Spin (p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE SLIP is primo death funk with Reznor seething seductively about skies fading to black over grinding soundscapes that perfectly split the difference between computer-music clarity and live-band grit."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.48) - "[C]omprised of 10 tracks that veer between the atmospheric and the downright funky, the discordant to the sublimely melodic."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.60) - Ranked #18 in Kerrang's Best Albums Of The Year 2008 -- "Continually disturbing, off-kilter, slightly creepy genius, but genius nonetheless."

Blender (Magazine) (p.74) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is industrial-strength Trent -- lithe, throbbing shame-disco, torrid guitar obliteration...and one revitalized 43-year-old auteur..."
