The Fragile comments
Comments for the album The Fragile by Nine Inch Nails:
This one is hurt quite a bit by the expectation factor, and compounded by the 100 minute factor. NIN usually does not disappoint, but this one is well short of the mark, as it tends to ramble and lose direction, and clocking in at 1 hour 43 minutes certainly does not help. "Just Like You Imagined" and "Into the Void" are a couple of the better tracks here.
Definitely too long. If it had consisted only of the quieter, chilled out stuff I would have enjoyed it much more.
I was disappointed in this at first. I waited five years for this? But over time it revealed its excellence to me. Two discs and nearly every song is not just great but also complex and moving. In some ways this could be considered NIN's magnum opus.
Good not great double album, has its moments. Favs; Please, We're In this..., Into the void.
Supposedly this album was to be split by instrumentals on one disc and non-instrumentals on the other. I'm glad it wasn't because the bulk of the instrumentals probably wouldn't've held up well in one sitting. Interspersed with the vocal songs, Trent creates a well-defined tapestry, expanding on all the themes of the previous couple albums. It's almost overdone as a charicature of his own music, but still powerfully ascerbic. You have an idea from the outset Trent's mindset as the chorus belts "too f@cked up to care anymore" at the top of his lungs amidst wretching, grinding guitar. 2 discs is too much -- 1 disc of the best stuff at 74:59 would've been better. But i applaud the artistic statement. There's genius in the sprawling statement he makes. The standouts are the singles "we're in this together" and "starf*ckers inc.".
Outlaw, I suggest just listening to individual tracks from this album. I think you'd like it much better that way.
Not much grabbed me at all. A bit too long. Somewhat Damaged and We're In This Together were good.
This album has a LOT of filler (way more than The Wall), but when a song hits, it blows your mind. "Just Like You Imagined" may be the greatest rock instrumental ever made, and "Into the Void" is absolutely the crystal-clearest picture of the "depraved road". "La Mer", "Pilgrimage", "We're In This Together", and "Complication" are other amazing tracks.
