And All That Could Have Been...
on 6 September 2003
I sort of have mixed feelings about this remix album of the song "the perfect drug." I knew the original wouldn't be on it, and that was fine with me. I love to get any NIN singles because there's always cool remixes. And this is because they are done by Trent Reznor himself, or by him and others.
" 'The Perfect Drug' Versions" has remixes, but all of them except for one are done by different artists. These artists being Meat Beat Manifesto, Plug, Spacetime Continuum, and The Orb. The songs are all right, but they don't compare to what Reznor can do with his songs. Track 3 was done/remixed by Nine Inch Nails and it shows. It's the only one on the CD that does the song justice. (It actually sounds like something you would hear on the "Fight Club" soundtrack.) The remixes are good, but could've been much better.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who just "kinda" likes Nine Inch Nails. If you're a die hard NIN fan then this is something that is worth checking out. My feelings are somewhat mixed about this CD, but my overall impression is that I'm content with it. Just wished there were more remixes by Trent Reznor himself. Other than that, it's still a cool CD to have if you are a big NIN fan.
