A good live album with a bonus CD

  • Nov 13, 2007
And All That Could Have Been is a live disc with performances from Nine Inch Nails' "Fragility v2.0" tour. During the performance on the CD, Trent Reznor has very little stage banter, which helps the songs segue together rather smoothly. Around the middle of the disc, there's a slower section featuring "The Great Below" and "The Mark Has Been Made"; this kind of bogs down this part of the CD (however, this was the way the performance was, so it's nice to see that the setlist was left intact when the disc was put together). One of my main complaints is that the disc ends rather abrutply, rather than letting the audience's cheering fade out.

This version of the album comes with a bonus CD, still (which is probably the closest thing you'll ever see to an "acoustic" Nine Inch Nails disc). "Something I Can Never Have," which is almost a minute longer on this disc, features a more laid-back arrangement (you only hear a piano and Trent's vocals). Besides reworked versions of some older songs, there are also four new songs on it: "Adrift and at Peace," "Gone, Still," "And All That Could Have Been," and "The Persistence of Loss."

Overall, they are both strong discs, and should be in a Nine Inch Nails collection. However, Still may be a little too "mellow" for some Nine Inch Nails fans.
