Very well, a while has passed now, and Niggy Tardust has been available for download, and has been downloaded, quite a bit now.Â Â Trent just released a post/article over on http://www.nin.com/ with some of the numbers for the record. Of the more interesting ones would be the fact that only about 18% of the people who downloaded the record actually chose to pay for it. And of those, only around 18% picked the high-quality Flac versions.
So, What do we make of it? I don't know yet.Â If you count "Mindshare" as a metric,Â its a multiple increase.Â If you count "sales", its..Â Not much.
What do I make of it?Â Thats for the next post.
