Nine Inch Nails first ever DVD and live CD, And All That Could Have Been, is scheduled to arrive in stores on Tuesday, January 22nd. Produced by Trent Reznor, the magnum opus document’s band’s sold-out “Fragility v2.0” concert tour and features seminal NIN songs including “The Wretched,” “Head Like A Hole,” “Wish,” “Closer,” “Starfuckers, Inc.,” “Hurt,” and more.
And All That Could Have Been is available in the following configurations: CD; Deluxe audio package with the live concert CD and the Still CD in special packaging; Still CD (available via nin.com or as part of the Deluxe audio package); DVD (both Dolby 5.1 and DTS formats are available); VHS.
Still, a special 9-song companion CD, will be available for purchase via the band’s website and in stores as part of the deluxe audio package. Still features four NIN favorites recorded live in a deconstructed fashion, one new vocal track And All That Could Have Been, and four new instrumentals.
The And All That Could Have Been DVD/VHS, produced by Reznor with Rob Sheridan directing, contains 18 songs which recreate the Fragility concert experience from beginning to end, using video footage collected over the course of the entire U.S. tour. The DVD/VHS was shot, edited and produced digitally, using Apple hardware and software. In reviewing the live CD and DVD, Jason Pettigrew of Alternative Press magazine states, “With this live disc (and corresponding DVD), Nine Inch Nails have arrived at that elusive point where artistic fulfillment and audience expectation coalesce... Even after 11 years, NIN’s ride remains as exhilarating as ever.” The tour featured ground-breaking visuals created by such innovators as lighting programmer Leroy Bennett (NIN, The Cure, Prince), lighting set designer Marc Brickman (Pink Floyd, Springsteen), and internationally renowned video artist Bill Viola, while the live sound was handled by Jon Lemmon (The Cure, Depeche Mode).
The DVD edition features commentary by Bill Viola, a photo gallery, and the option of viewing some songs from different angles. The DVD will be available in both DTS and Dolby digital 5.1 formats.
