Today, however, Nine Inch Nails announced that Pretty Hate Machine is getting a world-wide re-release on November 22nd - and unlike the last rerelease we saw, this one is going to be significantly different, aurally speaking, because Trent Reznor and Tom Baker were able to remaster the album "for a grealy improved sonic experience," to quote Trent's post on nin.com.
The album will be available on CD, vinyl, and in digital format on Monday, November 22nd. You can already pre-order the CD from Amazon. As you can see from the image on the left, the artwork has been reinterpreted for this 2010 release, with Rob Sheridan handling that duty, well, handily.
I'm looking forward to hearing a remastered PHM. If I have the time, I'll try and do a comparison like the one I did for the Downward Spiral remaster - although I'm betting the difference between the 1989 master of PHM and the 2010 remaster will be much more dramatic, given the way the dynamics sat on the original pressing.
