Into the void. Third full length from Nine Inch Nails gets the Definitive Edition treatment on triple 180 gram vinyl with fully remastered sound from the original sources. Released in 1999, The Fragile saw another stylistic shift for NIN, moving from the heavy industrial grit and distortion of The Downward Spiral with the introduction of ambient soundscapes, electronic beats and harmonic melodies. This time frontman Trent Reznor teamed up with longtime collaborator Alan Moulder on production duties. Includes the singles "The Day The World Went Away," "We're In This Together," "Into The Void," "Starfuckers Inc.," and many more. 25 tracks in all, housed in double gatefold sleeve complete with remastered artwork and booklet on the Nothing label.
