    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 & (sporadically) 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 on laptops, I'd wager, but I don't know where TR's coming from with these EPs. Maybe Trent's finally happy? I hope he is, but I liked his Art a lot more when he was miserable, when he set an incredibly high-benchmark (maybe it's time for wider collaborations again?).

      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 It gets away from that clean but trying-to-be dirty sheen I found off putting on the 2000s releases, and the now outdated sounding electronics from the earlier albums.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.

          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 )))))

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

              Alright when I bought this I was told it was a Spotify exclusive. I went into a store today and they had copies of this ... what the heck, this aint no spotify exclusive.

                this album is incredible. not even gonna try to understand the complaints on here. I consider this recent trilogy some of my favorite music they've released.

                  This pressing sounds great, but it had the same tear in the inner sleeve my first copy of Add Violence had.

                    Why is this in the full length album partition? Also I don't see "Add Violence" in the EP partition.

                      I'm surprised by how many people dislike this record. I thought it was hands down the best of the trilogy - it takes the same grit from NTAE but uses it to make stronger and more "complete" tracks. Could just be a matter of taste - I found Add Violence to be mostly unlistenable and almost embarrassing to listen to. Also - top notch art design. Hoping the next phase of NIN incorporates more of this sound and image.
