Nine Inch Nails Nail the Top Album Spot
Nine Inch Nails' "The Fragile" debuts at No. 1
With autumn officially here, it's
time for the music industry to start
harvesting. That means three new
superstar acts debuted in the top
ten, and there will be plenty more
to follow in coming weeks. This
time out, it was Nine Inch Nails'
double-CD, The Fragile, coming in
at No. 1.
Lead singer Trent Reznor may have waited five years
to follow up NIN's platinum record, The Downward
Spiral, but fans still remember. The critically
acclaimed release, anchored by the modern rock
radio hit "We're in This Together," sold 229,000
copies for the week ending Sept. 26, according to
SoundScan. Eve's Ruff Ryder's First Lady, last
week's No. 1, dropped to No. 5.
Elsewhere in the top ten, Barbara Streisand's latest,
Love Like Ours, came in at No. 6, while R&B
crooner Brian McKnight's Back at One debuted at

their place on the charts because next week new
records by Garth Brooks, Sting, Method Man with

Others who made noise last week with new records
were Tori Amos and her own double-CD, To Venus
& Back (No. 12), wise guy Adam Sandler's Stan &
Judy's Kid (No. 16), former Soundgarden lead singer
