Not quite worth the four year wait between this and The Downward Spiral but a damn fine and diverse selection of songs, some of the heaviest songs in NINs catalogue and some of the most melodic moments also, in particular some of the short and tripped out instrumental tracks.
The first disc is the most consistent, the song We're In This Together is one of my favourites ever, utterly fantastic (awesome video too) and the melodic outtro is to drift away to. It continues Trent's winnin lyrical formula of self-destruction, songs like Somewhat Damaged and The Wretched read like a eulogy for himself, a must-have for dedicated fans.

This two disc masterpiece dragged Reznor and co from their gloomy industrial origins into something altogether more profound and epic. But equally gloomy. It's one of those records you can just lie back and listen to without any other distractions and just soak it in. I'd give this 6 stars if it was possible but the ever un timely distraction of swapping the CD's over rears it ugly head.
As far as I'm concerned NIN have yet to reach the highs of this album, although With Teeth came close but was ultimately quite a different beast. Year Zero feels like an album of filler compared to some of the tracks on here. Although with freely available "The Slip" and "Ghosts" albums it seems Trents getting his act together again.
If you're considering buying it on just a whim, I'd highly reccomend it, plus here for £7.99, it generally twice as dear on the high street.
Just don't listen to it after you broke up with somebody dear to you.

Hit and miss

Being a huge fan of Trent, and owning most of his albums including this one, I feel this one pretty much hit and miss. Yes, they album is riddled with massive highlights like We're in this together, The Frail/Wretched, Where is everybody, Please and the Big comedown, but then there are such indifferent tracks as Ripe with decay and some of the more anonymous instrumental tracks like Pilgrimage and I'm looking forward to joining you. It's in plain view that Reznor is capable of making outstanding instrumental tracks - check out the aptly titled A warm place on the Downward Spiral album, the Greater good from Year Zero, the Four of us are dying from The Slip, or the solid Just like you imagined and the near-but-not-entirely-instrumental the Day the world went away from this album. Still, while the quality is a little erratic, it remains a fine record to this day.
