How weird. Just got this exact version from store.nin.com. Thought it's going to be common black vinyl version but white one arrived instead.

None of these tracks would've got within a mile of Spiral or Fragile. Since With Teeth (which I think is underrated/ worth re-visiting) I've only really enjoyed Hesiation Marks & the Ghosts volumes, & this EP in particular is just not for me. Year Zero was a departure in terms of production methods that I didn't dig- all done in a laptop, I'd wager, but this..I don't know where he's coming from. Maybe Trent's finally happy? I hope he is, but I liked his Art a lot more when he was miserable.

Overall good pressing. Sound is rich and full. Very vibrant. Biggest issue I have with it though (this also goes for other NIN records too) is that it's super quiet and you have to turn it up pretty loud. Overall not too big of a deal, but when it comes to the track "I'm not From This World", it's a pretty quiet track, so surface noise can be heard. The surface noise isn't too loud, but is present. Will turn some people away from this, but it doesn't bug me too much. Overall, pretty good pressing, for a really good album.

In my opinion this is the best thing NIN have ever released to date. It gets away from that clean but trying-to-be dirty sheen I found off putting on the 2000s releases, and the now outdated sounding electronics from the earlier albums. And arrives at an eclectic and bursting raw sound which is extremely listenable, and closer to my tastes overall. And you have to love the brasses on Play The Goddamned Part, a nice homage to I Think I Lost My Headache by Queens Of The Stone Age. I find it astonishing that a man in his mid 50s can lay out music as raw as this, more so than the avalanche of soft electronic music that is pumped out over the internet nowadays. Love it.

side A sounds good, odd pop but dry carbon brush solved most of it. side B sounds really good

Feb20. 'Shit Mirror' is a pretty cool start to the album. It apparently features The Cult's Ian Astbury, but his voice is so hidden in the mix there is no way I would have picked it without reading it was there. 'Ahead of Ourselves' is a little repetitive, but sounds like older NIN with a drum loop, programmed music that kicks into gear for an abrasive chorus.
I have no idea how to describe the instrumental 'Play the Goddamned Part' other than to say it sounds like a building piece from a soundtrack. And the saxophone was a surprise. The start of 'God Break Down the Door' starts as some techno, drum and bass mix, and if it was not NIN I'd have skipped from the start. As it was, it did not really grab me. Different though, as they mix saxophone and Reznor sings in a 'lounge' voice. A little late guitar makes the song more interesting.
'I'm Not of this World' sounds like some futuristic machine has just been left on and recorded. 'Over and Out' starts as an upbeat electronic track, that again, if this was not a NIN album I would skip. The slow, David Bowie inspired vocals did not do it for me, but I am sure that is the appeal for other listeners. In all, these last 2 tracks are too long. This is actually my least favourite album of the trilogy. 2/5

This is entirely my opinion, but I wish I'm Not From This World was not on Bad Witch.
1. It's not great
2. It upsets the 5 song pattern for NTAE / AV / BW
3. I blame it for destroying the original "EP trilogy" concept (Trent called Bad Witch an album maybe because of its length, which could have been shaved down (this long ass boring song)).

Does it fit musically? Sure (?).
Does it sound good? Eh.
Did it add anything? In my opinion, not really. Just runtime.

((((( IN MY OPINION )))))

Seems to be the same release as this: https://www.discogs.com/de/Nine-Inch-Nails-Bad-Witch/release/12289764. Vote for merge.

A little bit of saxophone is not bad in a release from a group that has been about the blues since their beginning.

Clicky as hell all the way through side A even after cleaning and quiet as mentioned making the pops even more obvious.
