This soundtrack is great (especially so for 3 bucks). If you liked Reznor's 'Ghosts', there's a good chance you'll dig this. To me, it's a more electronic Fight Club soundtrack: dark, moody, and atmospheric. And it's a VBR encoding (@320)!

@jasonap Not to be too big an mp3 nerd, but VBR and 320 are mutually exclusive. Amazon offers VBR V0 encoded mp3s but very few people would be able to tell the difference between them and 320 because V0's variable bitrate range can go up to 320 kbps when the music actually needs those bits.

http://www.nullco.com/TSN/ offers preorders of the physical album as well as lossless digital formats.

Ah, good ol' Trent...first he gave away The Slip, and now this. Awesome music aside, I love his attitude: "Well, people are downloading music. We can't stop that. So we can either be sticks in the mud and everyone will hate us, or we can come up with new ways of doing things."

Kudos Trent. You're a wise man. In for 1, obviously. :)

Free 5 track sample @ http://www.nullco.com/TSN/ as well. Requires you to submit an email address to get the sample.

@jdpman - I meant 'VBR with a max bitrate of 320'. Since you can set the threshold of a VBR encoded file, I put the max in there in case anyone was wondering what it was. Sorry for any confusion.

Also, for those unfamiliar with Amazon's MP3 offerings, they are DRM-free and can be played anywhere by anyone.

@chris465: I have submitted my email for music samples and albums hosted on the NIN/Null website many times (The New Regime debut, The Slip, Tour Samplers) and NO SPAM EMAILS have resulted from entering an email address.

In other words: tested and safe to submit email.

Looks like this deal is dead. I went to buy it, but the price was back up at $5. Still a good deal, but not the $2.99 advertised in the deal listing.
