The new Nine Inch Nails album Year Zero won't be out until 17 April, but there are some songs available on the official MySpace page http://myspace.com/nin Trent has said that there aren't any radio-friendly songs on the album and from the few on the MySpace page, I'd agree. They have lots of dark other-worldly bleeps and blips and techno-moans and not a lot of melody. Sometimes Trent's voice is the melody, in his spoken-singing manner. Given the teaser trailer and the songs we can hear so far, I'd say that Trent's point is that the world is so messed up that all we can do is look to our alien visitors/overlords/friends to save us, or at least distract us from the garbage being dealt to and on us all. Trent's trying communicate with them on their terms. Aliendustrial.
