By Alex HudsonThinking about getting the latest reissue of Nine Inch Nails' debut album Pretty Hate Machine? Don't -- at least not according to the record's creator, Trent Reznor. The NIN mastermind took to Twitter today (July 14) to dissuade his fans from buying the new version, which came out earlier this week.
He wrote, "NIN fans, don't waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released."
In a subsequent tweet, he described the re-release as a "a record label bullshit move repackaging the old version. Ignore please."
He's got a point -- the latest reissue is very similar to the original 1989 release through TVT Records. Those looking for a new version of Pretty Hate Machine would be better served by last year's remastered edition, which also included a cover of Queen's "Get Down, Make Love" as a bonus track.
