I know I’ve kind of beaten a dead horse when it comes to me talking about Nine Inch Nails on this blog, especially since it’s re-launch… but screw it, there’s a lot of good news regarding Trent and company so I’m going to keep em coming. Late last week I was lucky enough to finally receive my Deluxe Edition of Nine Inch Nail’s Ghosts I-IV in the mail. Upon opening it I was amazed at the quality and level of detail in the delivered product. Sure, I paid $75+S&H for it but when it comes to box sets this thing is the cream of the crop. I, like others was expecting a lot seeing as Trent is so tech savy but the design and artistic appeal of the packaging and photograph booklet are truly beautiful… the bottom line is Trent could have never pulled this off under the penny-pinching eye of a record label.
Getting to the point… the Deluxe Edition came with an Blu-ray disc loaded with extra’s, including a slideshow of images that play to the music; a different image for each track. These images are also embedded into the MP3 files from the digital download but the ones on the Blu-ray disk are like the ones in the printed book, in their full 1920×1080p glory. At an average size of about 1.25Mb each in the JPEG format the images are massive in size and could easily eat up bandwidth. So, I’m sharing three of my favorites below and will be sending you off-site to download the entire 38 packed in a RAR file via SendSpace. These make amazing wallpapers for any widescreen monitor and can easily be cropped down for a standard 4:3 monitor if you’re still stuck in 2001.
If you look closely you may see a few of those images incorporated in this site’s header area… hey, they are released under the Creative Commons License after all! Thanks again Trent and company. Click the images below for the full size, just remember to give them a moment to load.
