Trent Reznor has NEVER disappointed me, and I doubt he ever will. While some people might've overlooked this album and didn't appreciate it, I think "The Fragile" is a true and unique Nine Inch Nails masterpiece from start to finish. There is not one wasted second on the entire album. It's all good, all well-constructed, and all perfectly executed.
The last full length NIN album, "The Downward Spiral" is considered a dark and controversial album, but "The Fragile" proves to be more of a softer and melodic piece (although there is still plenty of anger and surprises to go around). With each album you can sense how much NIN's music has evolved. And this album is certainly no exception. There are soft songs and there are heavy songs. There are angry songs and there are emotional songs. There's songs with lyrics, and there are some that are just purely instrumental. No two songs sound alike and no two songs make you feel the same way. That is the genius to Trent Reznor. He can always impress and surprise you.
This double-album is the most complex thing Reznor has done, or at least in my mind. Which is why it took so long for it to come out. There is NOT ONE BAD SONG on the entire two disks. As soon as you're finished listening to them, you want to listen to them again. My favorites are songs like "somewhat damaged," "we're in this together," "the great below," "please," "the mark has been made," "the frail," "the big come down," "where is everybody," "the fragile," and "into the void." But the bottom line is they're all good and this isn't an album you'll want to go around skipping tracks. You will want to absorb it all in its entirety and nothing less.
What can I say; I think Trent Reznor is a musical genius. And I know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

As is an ever present theme of NIN albums The fragile 'halo fourteen' invites you into a deeply emotive world of self indulgent remorse, pain, and confusion. If you are familiar with their work this will be of no surprise to you and will in fact be a pre-requisite of your nails experience.
It would be of little use to highlight any tracks of particular interest as each one complements the other, and in turn the theme of the album; although, unable to resist temptation the gut wrenching emotivism of 'The great below', the raw power of 'We're in this together' and the seductively destructive 'big come down' will really hit you where it hurts.
Many people comment on nails as being suicide music, and without any fear of reducing their opinions to drivle i will simply say that they can only be denying something that dwells deep within us all. This album will suck you in and emrace you with its iron grip, you'll experience crushing riffs, turbulent synthesized beats and a wealth of percussion effects, with of course the prolific sound of trents agonisingly raw vocal talent to transcend the lot into another dimention of expression through music.
Raw, industrial and thoroughly enjoyable

There have been pretenders in his absence. There was Marilyn Manson, there was Filter. And yet, they could not break away from the shadow of their mentor, Mr. Trent Reznor. 5 years was a long time, would the world remember him? To ensure, NIN returned with one of the most sensational recordings of the last decade.
I got into NIN recently, and The Fragile was my first album. I'm always wary of art-rock & prog-rock, but this is so stylish and cunningly put together, it made me love it. Reznor is complicated but never pretentious - he remembers he is actually a musician underneath it all, something Radiohead seemed to forget with Kid A. There are so many brilliant tracks it is difficult to describe. Highlights: The passion of We're In This Together, the beauty-beast of No You Don't, the anger of Starf*ckers, the nihilsm of The Day...., the guitar jangles and screamed vocals on The Big Come Down, the danceability of Into The Void, the growing bass of Somewhat Damaged. Even on the loudest, most obnoxious moments have hidden melodies, begging to be picked out. It even has good instrumentals, which i usually hate. You can be a complete music illiterate like me and still be touched by the manipulation of instruments.
The strartingly odd cover, cardboard box and inside lyrics booklet complete a magnificent purchase. Now even his own mentor Gary Numan is taking the industrial-goth route, we have to ask weather music could live without Trent Reznor and his Nine Inch Nails

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.
