    Typical husband/wife vanity project, pushing a vocalist on us that would not be in the industry otherwise, ala "Blackmores Night". This sounds more Atticus Ross than NIN.

    The video is visually stunning imho. Probably has to do with the lack of color or the environment they filmed it in. Anyways, I love the new song and video!

    More than visuals which are stunning, the story of it and the anthropological concept there really appeal to me.

    Cant wait for this album, Trent cant put out a bad album but all the songs i've heard so far sound very similar to each other

    What a bunch of synthetic autotune CRAP

    trents actually a huge fan of organic over digital. he's part of grohls new sound city documentary. i expect that his use of autotune in this song is actually quite deliberate.

    Have you actually seen Sound City? You see that he's kind of the odd man out and uses digital while everyone else is using analog. He talks about it being important to know the analog basis for the digital technology, but he wouldn't be able to do what he does without digital.

    I like HDA... Its like NIN with a female lead.

    More like a Trent Reznor production with female vocals.
