The Fragile- what can I say, but what more can you want from a cd? Not only is it great to listen to (yes- I know the most important aspect of music) but the sheer complication, the extraordinary musical carpet that is weaved before the listener's ears and the emotional confusion within this album, make it the best music I have heard in a long time. From the pulverising ferocity of 'Starf***ers Inc.' to the delicate, yet desperate, perfection of 'I'm Looking Forward to Joining You, Finally' to my favourite, the hateful, hopelessness of 'The Big Come Down' Nine Inch Nails continue, even though I'm a huge fan, to astound me. I sometimes feel as though I'm missing the pig picture with this record, that there is some higher plane of thought I cannot comprhend, but I'm still happy in my ignorance as long as I'm listening to 'The Fragile'.
