Notes:
The Fragile - Album anecdotes:

- The CD version consists of 23 tracks as listed in the master release branch.
- The LP version includes two additional tracks: "10 Miles High" and "The New Flesh". The last song, "Ripe" misses the second section called "(With Decay)" present on CD, mainly due to medium limitation reasons. Additionally, there are different intros and outros between the songs on LP. Some songs have longer intro, such as "La Mer", clocking at 5 minutes, against a shorter version on CD.
- The Cassette version places a secondary section called "(+Appendage)" after the song "Please". This was exclusive to this format, until the release of "The Fragile Deviations 1", in 2016.
- The Fragile Deviations 1 is related to this release as being a full instrumental take on leftover studio material and alternate versions, expanded to 37 tracks in totality.

I ordered The Fragile Deviations, and it arrived just wrecked from Sandbag. Very heavy creasing near 3 of the 4 corners. No padding inserts used. Interesting to learn it's a persistent problem. Credit to NIN customer service for refunding me in full, and actually refusing to accept the record back. Do contact customer service if you have trouble.

Anyone found an outer sleeve that fits this fat triple gatefold?

Sounds amazing. The definitive remaster is very well executed. The subtle layers of orchestration that made me originally fall in love with this album when I first heard it on headphones have been brought slightly more to the foreground to shine. Sounds full, punchy, layered and well balanced.

First one came with a bit of corner damage, ordered a new sleeve from sandbag and got a new copy of the record a month later with a crease mark down the entirety of the spine. I give up. Damage isn't enough to merit owning three copies of the same record and selling a somewhat damaged (ha) record will probably be very hard

My favorite album of all time! This pressing sounds fantastic, but is a tad lower quality than Broken, The Downward Spiral and Deviations 1. My copies of those 3 albums are all flawless. I've gone through two copies of The Fragile, because Sandbag damaged my first copy by shipping it poorly, and both copies of all 3 discs have a few flaws. Just some hiss and crackle during the quieter moments, and a few pops here and there. Nothing outrageous, but definitely noticeable compared to the other 3 flawless reissues.

Still I highly HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking to own this album on vinyl.

I really wanted this, but the ridiculous price and even more ridiculous shipping costs changed my mind.
And it's still expensive here. Pass.

Why are sellers asking $90 here when they're still half that on the NIN web store?
