and the pirate kittens from Mars?... 

The best record you'll probably never be able to buy in record stores is the internet-only collab between NIN frontman TRENT REZNOR and urban poet/philosopher/actor/Hip-Hop rocker SAUL WILLIAMS, the genre-bending LP, "The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!" Available as a high-quality, DRM-free download at Williams' website for a paltry $5 bucks (the first 100,000 downloads were free as a bird), the stellar record features heavy contributions from Trent whose signature style defines the album's sound, especially on his must-hear cover of U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday." The recording is a sign of things to come for the industry-shy Reznor who has publicly announced his disdain for record companies and his intention to personally distribute his own music in the future, sans-label. If this is the future of the record industry, we like it...
