Fixed [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Peter J. D'Angelo
The companion piece to Trent Reznor's explosive industrial rock / metal opus Broken, Fixed sees the songs twisted through an intense remix process that makes them even darker than the original doom rock creations they began as. With contributions from noted studio experts like J.G. Thirlwell, Coil, Butch Vig, and Reznor himself, the more industrial versions of these guitar-themed tracks appear in a completely new light. The mixes range from sinisterly quiet to more beat- and drum-oriented, but they also retain the awesome power of the core compositions. The remix of the Grammy-winning "Wish," for instance, features a lengthy, saturated drum intro, which only gives it ...

The mixes range from sinisterly quiet to more beat- and drum-oriented, but they also retain the awesome power of the core compositions. The remix of the Grammy-winning "Wish," for instance, features a lengthy, saturated drum intro, which only gives it more credence when it erupts into the original buzz-saw guitar riff that dominates the track. Other mixes incorporate backwards tapes and difficult-to-pinpoint noise manipulations, but rather than building the songs to the point where things grow tedious, they tend to completely tear them apart while adding to the apocalyptic vision that envelopes the original disc. Even though Nine Inch Nails was thrust into the mainstream spotlight, this record shows the group returning to its roots and creating a daring new translation of songs that were pummeling from the start. Alongside "Wish," both "Gave Up" and "Happiness in Slavery" are given a few new readings, and while they are nowhere near as direct as the vicious attack of Broken, Fixed is still an impressive feat and a necessary counterpoint to an important record.

    I am an avid NIN fan. I recently bought this cd, and it wasn't what everyone made it out to be. I find it a little strange for a band such as NIN not to have awesome remix cds. Weird. Anyway, all is forgiven because every NIN album that wasn't a mix cd (and yes that includes Broken) was stellar. Keep up the good work Trent! And as for saying their new stuff doesn't rock as much, have you even heard Year Zero? Pretty amazing to put it lightly.

    The best of the NIN remix ep's, hands down!

    Easily the best of the remix ep's and the last "great" recording by T Reznor. If you don't think that "Pretty Hate Machine" is his best record, you don't know music. I enjoy most of his records, but after "The Downward Spiral", things went a little south for me, personally. He still makes fantastic music, better than most of his peers, but just not as gripping and immediate as he once did. As for me, "Pretty Hate Machine", "Broken, and "Fixed" are by far THE best NIN recordings: they're personal, raw, and unforgiving. Hey Trent, any unreleased tracks from the "PHM" era that could see the light of day eventually???
