3 stars Good thing they put this one in digipak instead of a jewel case?

The second NIN offering, broken shows Reznor and friends moving away from the more alternative sound of Pretty Hate Machine into more interesting territory. Still dark and angry, but also even heavier. Also interesting to know is that this album is very much a computer (Macintosh) made project using software called Digidesign's TurboSynth. I really like that backward tracking sounding like guitar effect he creates on Happiness In Slavery. "Don't open your eyes you won't like what you see". There's even a distorted Mellotron used on the album, but I'm not sure where it's used.

This really is a very loud album even at low volumes but has a lot of interesting details in the mix if you crank it up. Trent paid a lot of attention to the audio details. It's almost too short particularly if you cut out the two cover tracks at the end. But hey, a better album would follow.
