Stands you at the edge of emotions,then kicks you off,hard!,
This review is from: The Fragile (Audio CD)
This is an amazing album.Nothing more really needs to be said.The opening track is a 5 minute progressive drilling into the brain which tells you that this is not going to be a picnic in the park!!! The amazing We're in this Together is a malestrom of guitar riffs and heartfelt, powerful echos of the psychoanalytical nature that Trent Reznor throws perfectly into every song.The first cd takes you from all out anger and animosity to a state of self realisation and grudging self acceptance which I have not found in any other cd that I have heard.The second is less coherent but it still takes you through a plethora of moods which the artist is trying to reflect.And damn he does it well!!! This contains the scathing Starf**kers inc. which is sang through gritted teeth and an immense amount of misplaced trust bordering on hatred.The almbum ends with the haunting Ripe With Decay which is one of the most beautifully, in the midst of deterioration and desolation instrumentals that I have heard.This album really does take you to the top of the mountain of emotive and though provoking music and lyrics and shows no remorse in swiftly shoving you off onto the spikey rocks below!!!!Amazing!
