Trent Has No Pretty Love For Album Reissue
On Thursday the NIN frontman logged into his Twitter account to express his disapproval of Tuesday’s re-release of the band’s 1989 debut album, Pretty Hate Machine.
“NIN fans, don’t waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released,” Reznor wrote with a link to a listing of the re-release on NINCatalog.com.
He added that the re-issue was simply “a record label bulls**t move repackaging the old version. Ignore please.”
NINCatalog.com’s listing for Tuesday’s re-release notes that the album is “very similar to original TVT version. This is not a remastered release.”
After originally being released on TVT Records in 1989, Pretty Hate Machine was reissued by Rykodisc Records in 2005. In 2010 a remastered version of the album was released through Bicycle Music Company including new cover art and a cover of the Queen tune “Get Down, Make Love.”
