I ended up downloading NIN Ghosts from the Internet Archive
(https://archive.org/details/nineinchnails_ghosts_I_IV) in both flac and
ogg format. Works perfect for me, including info.

My Emms mpd setup is simply:

(defun emms-setup-mpd-remote ()
  (setq emms-player-mpd-server-name "music.local"
        emms-player-mpd-server-port "6601"
        emms-player-mpd-music-directory nil)
  (add-to-list 'emms-info-functions 'emms-info-mpd)
  (add-to-list 'emms-player-list 'emms-player-mpd))

Then I:

M-x emms-player-mpd-update-all
M-x emms-cache-set-from-mpd-all

..and that's it.
