Reznor's Crowing Achievement

9 years, 6 months ago at Oct 12 17:51

Many would argue that the crowning achievement of NIN would be The Downward Spiral but I believe anyone who knows the backstory of most of the songs on The Fragile can really get a grip into Reznors mindset during the making of the album. A lot of the songs are about drug addiction and the death of loved ones and that emotion comes pouring out with most of the tracks on the album.

Description: Amazon.com's Best of 1999 Trent Reznor took five years to record this monstrous double-CD set, wielding a perfectionist's touch in the production and the subtlety of a chainsaw in the musicianship. The result is uncompromising, full of hysterical noise and yet utterly accessible. Somehow, someway, this is one of the best pop records of the year. --Matthew Cooke The Fragile is even bleaker than 1994's The Downward Spiral as it lurches along with a perpetual scowl. A frenzied collection of buzz-saw pop, Trent Reznor's grim opus yo-yos through two CDs with scattershot intensity. Hushed one minute and explosive the next, spite and ... (more)

Album Notes (4 music items)

"This is personally my favorite album by Nine Inch Nails (The Downward Spiral being an extremely close 2nd). The mood of the album is what makes it incredible; it has such a dark, gloomy, eerie, and mysterious sound, very present on songs like The Wretched, Even Deeper, The Great Below, and The Mark Has Been Made. The use of acoustic instruments mixed with industrial helps boost this feeling. Best Songs: The Wretched, We're in This Together, Even Deeper, The Great Below, The Big Come Down Score"

"THE FRAGILE (1999) NINE INCH NAILS IRONICALLY, THOUGH THE FRAGILE IS IN MY OPINION, ONE OF THE MOST CRIMINALLY IGNORED NIИ RECORDS IN THE BAND'S ENTIRE LEGACY, it also happens to be the one by which the band itself, in particular NIИ's front-man Reznor, have been the most vocal in aiming directed criticism toward. It just goes to show the state of personal self-loathing and darkness chasing the mentality of my sheltered and fragile teenage ego was centered in during this challenging period of"
