I never thought that I would like heavy metal music, but after hearing alot of good reviews of this band, I bought The Fragile.
I had been missing out on alot.
This 1 hour 40 min album is amazing from start to finish. Trent reznor has managed to take raw energy, and turn it into a masterpiece of musical delight.

I bought this album 2 years after it's '99 release, in 2001, as opposed to his previous album (the downward spiral) which I bought less than one year after it's '94 release, in 1995. so my opinion of one as opposed to the other is two years familiarity against eight. not that I believe this is a source of bias, since my opinion of the other held, just a factual beginning to my review...
I see the value and work into this album, but to me it's 'accessibility' lessens it's profundity. it is pop-synth. don't get me wrong, this album accomplishes what it seemingly intends, and has it's place. but I hope the artist who gave us "the downward spiral" doesn't continue in this direction, I hope simply for my personal like of the previous efforts as contrasting this one.
the fault I see, is mainly, repetitiousness; the chorus' the beats, the rhythm. this album builds itself on a series of 'hooks', though good 'hooks', are still a very tight-knit pattern which allows little room for sonic deviance of the kind you'd expect on an 'industrial' album. I'm a fan of distortion, the aesthetic of noise; beauty from 'chaos', areas with no time signatures (following in the tradition Igor Stravinsky & the like). once you know the layers of sound, they are monotonous in themselves. they have a identity of themselves, but that's their problem, they are finite, squarely defined, unlike the broad open field that his second full-length album posed; which made one have to struggle for familiarity in it's composition. The Fragile gives you familiarity on the first listen because of the nature of it's song structure.
however, the instrumentals seem to have enough variance, and are exempt from most of my former judgements.

i will start this off by saying that before the fragile, i was a huuuuuuge nine inch nails fan. downward spiral almost never left my cd player. so when this album came out, of course i was tripping over myself to go get it. what i found completely smacked me in the face.
this album does not contain the same trent reznor that was present in downward spiral, broken, pretty hate machine, etc.
i cant really describe it outside of its nine inch nails meets radiohead. beautiful.
the last track on the first cd "the great below" is beautiful. not loud, not angry, not angst-ridden... jus... beautiful. as is "la mer" and a bunch of other tunes on this album.
well im going to wrap this up, cuz i cant say anything that hasnt been said in the 900+ other reviews here.
jus let me leave you with this: if youre a teenager, and have some anger to get out, pick up "broken" or "the downward spiral"... if youre ready to get out of the mad at the world feeling, and need someone to help you stand back up, this is your album. this album has made a mark on my life. as it should have.

This cd is the follow up to The Downward Spiral. Improving on the few weakness, The Fragile is an exciting cd, well it has to be, since it has a 2-CD span.

1st disc is more superior, but there are some choice tracks on 2nd disc. It would be a great idea to make a burned cd with your favourites, since there is 20+ tracks in all.

Experimenting is the key to success, and NIN have yet again proven it.

5/5

Trent Reznor is an extremely talented singer and song writer. His writing is perfect, music is mezmerizing and wonderfully crafted. He has a message that should be heard: the world is not all daisys and fairytales. In my opinion, his music is not intended for the mainstream pop culture. It is simply intended to tell a story that in in is mind. The music has an appeal to the deepest parts of the soul. In my opinion, this is the perfect album to sit back and reassess the thoughts and views of such a horrible time we live in.

I was amazed at how many people didn't buy this album because they said it wasn't nine inch nails... This album was Trent showing how human he really was, as with evidence in the lyrics and song titles referring to a piece of fruit (ie opening with Somewhat Damaged and ending with Ripe (with Decay)). Experimental, heartfelt, and totally dreamy. Despite all the hype that predated this album, i think it stood up to it. In a musical world of mediocrity this album stands the test of time. Especially now in 2004 where everyone whines exactly the same about how great high school was and other emotional barren themes, people need to discover the truth and vitology that thrives within this album. Listen to it from beginning to end... It may speak to your heart as it did to mine.
