I keep reading these great reviews for NINE INCH NAILS' 'The Fragile' [Nothing/Interscope]. I heard it. The reviewers must have been sent different records. This overlong & pretentious dud became over 100 of the most painful, wasted minutes of my life. When will people realize that just because you can fit 78 minutes on a cd doesn't mean you don't have to? And you certainly don't need to do it twice in the same package! What the hell does he have to be so glum about, anyway? When I was in high school, there were these guys who would carry around the box cutters they used at their grocery store jobs. They would cut themselves at school to gross out the girls and make people think that they were scary, troubled or deep individuals. Well, after suffering through 'The Fragile', I know one thing: Trent must carry a box cutter around. What a talentless dick he is and what a boring record he has made.
