Pitchfork Thinks Ghosts I-IV Is a 3 Star Album, Too

Pitchfork gives Nine Inch Nails’ Ghosts I-IV a wishy-washy review.

If I were one of those early deluxe-pacakge customers, I’d want my $300 back.

For me, Ghosts ranks near the bottom of NiN albums. I like it fine, but it hardly competes with Year Zero or Downward Spiral. It’s not really meant to. But I think that there’s something to be said about how this album took off because two things:

  1. It’s Nine Inch Nails
  2. It’s the distribution method

Both good things, but not why music should be popular, imo.
