Trent Reznor Digg Dialogg

Took some time out tonight to watch the latest Digg Dialogg featuring Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor.  As well as much insight into his thoughts on the music industry, gaming and several other topics, one of the questions asked was in relation to the Tapeworm project featuring Maynard.  Trent’s response was essentially that the music wasn’t up to scratch (he rated it a 7/10 when he really would expect a NIN/Tool type collaboration to be a 10/10) and that there were various commercial pressures which became issues.  The general feeling was that the music created would not be released in any form.  He did mention though that he is still good friends with Maynard, and would definitely be interested some collaboration in the future.

The full interview is about 40 minutes, and I would suggest that any Tool fan would find it interesting viewing.

Man these guys are such perfectionists. He refuses to release the tracks just because they are only *7/10* instead of  *10/10*.  I don’t see how a version of ‘passive’ featuring both MJK and Trent Reznor on vocals is only rated as 7/10. Lol.

The live version per emotive was definitely a 10.

I’d say the APC version of Passive is about 7/10 too. When it’s live it’s better though, because I find the CD version a bit bland and it has a lot more energy live.

But if there was a CD version with Trent doing the chorus and backup vocals, it would bring a whole new energy to the song and it would easily be a 8.5/10 imo.

I just find it kinda sad that trent won’t release any of the songs because they aren’t perfect. shame.
