Album Review: Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts V:Together and Ghosts VI:Locusts
Updated: Mar 3, 2021
I was asked to write up this review of the new NIN double album Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: Locusts. This is my first EVER proper article, so yeah, no pressure right?
I’ve been listening to NIN on and off for a long time so I’ve always been a fan, but I’m not familiar with every album they have produced. So admittedly I did do some extra research especially for this article, as I’m not exactly reviewing a mate of a mates band who played open mic night that one time...
Ghosts V and VI continues the collected instrumental works of NIN after releasing Ghosts I - IV back around 2008. This first collection stuck to the more industrial metal side of NIN in several mid tracks, with the deep, dark, and drifting stuff collected within the start and finish. A huge collection of well varied but signature sound pieces of music. Trent Reznor describes Ghosts as “a soundtrack for daydreams”.
