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.

Oh Trent, where's the 5.1 surround mix you said had been completed back in 2014? Do we have to wait till 2019 for an epic 20th-anniversary reissue? We'll see.

Awww man, I just received my copy from Amazon.co.uk but there were 2 copies of disk #1 and no disk #2. Album was still sealed.
This one had the Nothing Records sticker on the outside, B0025682-01.

Edit:
Ok so I returned the wrong one and ordered it again, this time it had the Interscope Records sticker on the outside and disk 1,2 and 3 were all present.

The fact that it doesn't have (With Decay) holds me back from wanting this more than it probably should... I know that applies to all the pressings for The Fragile on vinyl, but I was hoping this one would at least be different. There's no similar problem with the Definitive/any press of The Downward Spiral, is there?

Be careful with these original pressings of The Fragile: Crackling and pops may be persistent on these editions. This is almost fatal for such a dynamic record. My copy, while well produced, crackles and pops through all six sides of playback despite multiple spinwashes to clear blemishes. If buying an unsealed OG copy of the Fragile, make sure you ask your seller for a sound review beyond a visual grading.

This is a phenomenal pressing, but not the best in my collection. The claims below saying it is quiet is not entirely accurate.A deep clean, brand new and cleaned stylus, storage in anti-static sleeves, and a de-static of the record immediately before playback did not eliminate the pops and cracks. It's not super noticeable when listening with speakers. But when using headphones? It's noticeable. Listen on speakers for an ideal experience.

Absolutely fantastic job, well deserving of the so called definitive edition.

This is hands down the best sounding record in my 300+ (and always growing) collection! Reznor did a killer job on this. It's exciting to finally be able to own The Fragile on vinyl and I couldn't be more ecstatic with how well this definitive edition came out. Your ears can tune into every layer on every track perfectly with this super clean sounding remaster, making this an incredibly rewarding listen.

Has anyone had issues with their copy being slightly off-pitch?

Nasty bump on the first side of disk one gutted apart from that sounds amazing far better than orig.
