18 Ghosts II

This is the only known version. At 3:43 of this track, there is a loop that sounds very similar to a riff in Stefan Goodchild's remix of "The Warning" on Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D. It begins with a simple electronic drum beat, echoing synths and synthesizer layers. A distinct call-and-response echoing guitar riff plays during a middle section of the song. Entering a less percussive section, atmospheric pads and synth sound effects play. In this section, effected - possibly reversed - wordless vocals accompany the instruments.


"18 Ghosts II" has never been played live.

Differences in Artwork

While "18 Ghosts II" is not the greatest example of this, it should be noted that the much artwork embedded into the files of the official download of Ghosts I–IV from nin.com are not just croppings of the photographs in the PDF.
