5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Reznor, You are spoiling us.... 14 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you read the reviews - opinion is clearly split on this little EP!

Personally, i loved it when it first came out, and 15 years on, its actually matured with age!

I'm going to polarise further with this remark - but this is one for the connoisseur of industrial. It harks back to the earlier days of industrial, before the genre was hijacked by overused guitars and standard (boring) metal overtones. The sound is minimal and bleak. The samples are choice and abrasive. Vocals are repetitive but effective. And the programming, even 15 years on, its absolutely awesome. Man, this is just a classic - similar in tone to the late 80's output of Ministry. (Think 'stigmata' etc). And if all that interests you - then buy the EP now.

However, if you like your industrial noise pretty, poppy and oh-so very accessible - then look elsewhere. Not to be revisionist - but later NIN stuff (and even PHM, for that matter) hooked in a lot of the Good Charlotte / teen-angst posse, who no doubt did, and apparently do, hate this stuff. Maybe this explains the motivations of the naysayers of this absolute gem? A matter of opinion, i suppose...

Anyway - an article of the time stated, 'this is a paradox; fixed is more broken than 'broken'!" Too right. If you think 'Head like a hole' is the be-all-and-end-all of industrial, then look elsewhere. However, if you see that classic as a 'good start' which doesn't go far enough - then buy this EP immediately. Trent is an ambassador for his genre, but this demonstrates he is clearly an auteur, an innovator and a genius too.

4.0 out of 5 stars headf*** noize 3 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
while not being a good starting point for a nin collection, a fan can find many hidden wonders in this cd. At first listen its just mindless techno-rock remixes. Now switch the lights off, drink heavily, put your headphones on and listen again. Now it creates a glorious tapestry of agony and anger, shots of deformed synths firing at random, and ending with the apocolyptic screaming slave, a vicious pile of distorion that piles up all the way through, then collapses compeletly. Makes ATR sound mainstream

5.0 out of 5 stars Fixed: An unsung masterpiece 24 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After the excellent Broken, that adopted a more metal stance than the electronica laden Pretty Hate Machine, Trent Reznor went away and created something with more of a Techno flavour - and it tastes delicious!
This CD contains remixes of songs from the Broken EP, but, unlike Broken, it's action from the off - Reznor chose to drop the brief but wonderful interlude-like tracks Pinion and Help Me I'm In Hell. What this creates is a fast paced album from start to finish, barely letting up in it's 40 minutes of wonderfully harsh noise.
It begins with Gave Up, a remix of the track from Broken with the same name, and it gives you a taste of what is to come throughout the maxi-single. By rearranging and cutting up the vocals from the original track, Reznor creates a very fast paced barrage of non-stop, perfectly crafted sound.
We then move onto Wish, also a remix of the track from Broken with the same name. Although this song is more subdued, even semi-calm at times, it's still decidedly NIN in it's sound. Reznor didn't stray away from the original Wish much with this one, instead he chose to play with how it plays - using a 'stuck record' effect quite often, and fusing it with a bit more electronica.
Happiness In Slavery comes next, which is, again, a remix of the Broken track of the same name. Whereas Wish stayed fairly true to the original, H.i.S. is quite different - the only lyrics that remain are Reznor's inhuman sounding shrieks of "slavery", with the occassional sequence of screams, interwoven with a great sounding beat-laden track more akin to something from The Downward Spiral than Broken. The highlight of the CD.
Throw this away has a slower, more eerie feel to it than the rest of the maxi-single, opening with a repetitive, chilling sound of who-knows-what.

3.0 out of 5 stars A wrong turn 29 Oct 1999
Format:Audio CD
Hot on the heels of the stunning Broken EP, Fixed came as a bit of a dissapointment.
Basically a reworking of some of the tracks from Broken plus a few new tracks, Fixed doesn't really contain any gems. The remix of 'Happiness in Slavery' is pretty good, featuring the talents of JG Thirlwell. However other tracks end up sounding like a bstard son of Mudd's Tiger Feet or a radio being badly retuned.
Definately one for serious NIN fans only. Do not start your NIN collection here!

5.0 out of 5 stars What! 3 stars only! 7 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Forget what the rest have said! This CD takes the musical excellence of Broken, and gives it a twist in conjunction with other like minded DJ's and composers, to create NIN with a twist.
Some of the best tunes I've ever heard, all with the unique NIN sound, combined with the thoughts and influences of others. Pure class in a CD case!

2.0 out of 5 stars Pass on this one 11 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I adore Nine Inch Nails but would only recommend this to collection completionists. It really is just a dull few tracks consisting of just noise- I know that's ironic considering the genre, but I can't see any artistic merit in the tracks.
Avoid
