Well, it seems that way if you're not a NIN fan, of course. But for us, it's a treat. A whole flood of puzzle pieces just got dropped on us. What's especially interesting is that some of it seems to tie into previous albums. There are a lot of references to a lyric from a song on The Fragile, which came out in 1999. (The lyric in question is "The clouds will part and the sky cracks open and God himself will reach his ****ing arm through just to push you down" -- several images on the sites depict a giant arm reaching down from the clouds.) There also seem to be a lot of ways that this could tie into With Teeth (including a song title that seems very likely to correspond to a mysterious set of lyrics on the WT lyric sheet), almost as if this will actually turn out to be some sort of "unnanounced" double album. Like I said, not too interesting to people who aren't fans, but I'm sure there are at least a few here. And every NIN fan will want to know about this, no doubt about it.
