    It has it's highs and lows, volume and quality wise. None of the songs hit rock bottom, they kind of hover above mediocrity. Echoplex is one of the best songs Trent Reznor has written, but other than that the rest kind of blends into just another solid album.

  1. Instead of a symbolic death, The Slip feels much more like a possible rebirth.
  2. While the music may look backward, the way it has been released looks forward, to a far greater extent than Ghosts I-IV ever could have hoped.
  3. For listeners who like their music loud and fierce and pissed off at just about everything, there aren't too many better options than The Slip. Plus, the price is right.
