Now Playing: Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol - Michael Giacchino
Hi. I have been pleased to find this website. I am a Nine Inch Nails fan AND an incidental music composer myself and I have been pleasantly reading through various reviews here. I wanted to make a point clear on the $300 edition for I see it sounds terrible put like this, but it, actually, has no to do with the composer egos or with them thinking in advance their score was to be outstanding. Actually that's the way Trent Reznor (NIN in it's entirety) works usually with his releases. The man has since 2006 retired from dealing with music publishers and from then on commercialized his own records via online or by shipping whether they be paid or free for download (like his latest album The Slip). He usually offers the standard mp3 download followed by FLAC and physical releases and he usually gives some tracks away for free. And it's not the first time the most complete option available is something in several vinyls with huge artwork, merchandising, and such. I only realized how bad all that looks from the film scoring point of view when I read this review, but, that't just Trent Reznor dealing with his fans, treating the release as one of his own.
I like his band but I don't really like yet this approach on film scoring he and Atticus Ross are having (I liked better the 'Book of Eli' from Atticus Ross, in case), but I felt I had to extend on the infamous $300 release.
