Album Review: Ghosts VI: Locusts by Nine Inch Nails
Exceptionally Good, Based on 2 Critics
The Line of Best Fit - 85 Based on rating 8.5/10
For musician, producer, and composer Trent Reznor - who has no qualms in voicing his opinion on the state of the music industry at the best of times - the logical response to dealing with life in the eye of the storm was to take to Twitter and drop two Nine Inch Nails albums for the price of one. That price, you ask? Totally free. Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: Locusts are the first full length releases from the band - also manned by musician, producer and songwriter Atticus Ross - since 2013's Hesitation Marks, and a continuation on their instrumental electronic project aptly under the same name.
Night and day coincide.
With Trent Reznor, there's always an ulterior motive behind his actions, especially when NIN is concerned. To hear that Trent had dropped a new album out of the blue was a mild surprise, but even then, considering the recent predicament we all find ourselves in, it's not all that shocking when you observe the many other artists currently writing new albums in their own isolation. What really got my attention though was hearing that Trent had released not one but two new records simultaneously, and for absolutely free via the Nine Inch Nails webstore.
