This review is from: The Fragile (Audio CD)
For me, Nine Inch Nails is a band that provides a refreshing break from the same-old-same-old rock music of today. Everything about them, right down to the CD cases, is original and unusual. Trent Reznor is a genius. He writes music that goes beyond being music, it's a state of mind. Take 'The Day the World Went Away' I've listened to that song a million times and I still treat it as if I've never heard it before. It's a song with a million quirks and intricacies that I am constantly finding. The other highlights of the album are Somewhat Damaged, The Wretched, Starf*ckers Inc, Complication, Into the Void. But ultimately, 'The Fragile' is an album that should be recognised as one of those very special albums, where every song is wonderful. It is true, unadulterated genius, and, dare I say it? Better than 'The Downward Spiral'. I'm gonna get lynched for saying that.
