"And All That Could Have Been" (also known as "Halo 17") is a live album set and double DVD released by Nine Inch Nails in 2002. The live album contains music recorded during the "Fragility 2.0" US tour in 2000; a limited edition set added a second disc titled "Still" containing "deconstructed" versions of previous NIN songs and some new material. The double DVD set, sold separately, has video recordings of the songs performed on the CD, as well as additional song performances and footage from the "Fragility 2.0" tour.

Fragility

Trent Reznor said that work on this release would serve as a transition between the tour and the next album.cite news

Although Reznor said "I thought the show was really, really good when we were doing it" while producing the DVD, he later wrote that "I can't watch it at all. I was sick for most of that tour and I really don't think it was Nine Inch Nails at its best." [cite web

CD version

There are two retail versions of the CD set: a 'deluxe' limited edition, packaged in a gray cloth case that contains both the "Live" and "Still" CDs together in a fold-out digipak, and the standard edition that contains only the "Live" disc in a single digipak.

Videos for the performances of "Something I Can Never Have" (with Jerome Dillon), "The Becoming" (with Dillon and Danny Lohner), and "Gone, Still" were published on the [http://www.nin.com/visuals/ official NIN website] .

The band also performed an intimate acoustic set at the Chicago Recording Company during the "Fragility 2.0" tour, which is available online and on bootleg CD, as "The CRC Sessions"; it includes arrangements of "Something I Can Never Have" and "The Day the World Went Away" that prefigure their "Still" recordings, as well as two versions of "Hurt" and full band performances of "The Fragile", "Even Deeper", and "The Big Come Down".

DVD

The DVD version, produced by Trent Reznor and directed by Rob Sheridan, comprises video footage from the 2000 Fragility 2.0 tour. Sheridan and other members of the band's crew filmed the tour using consumer DV cameras, and the DVD was then put together internally at Reznor's New Orleans studio, where Sheridan and Reznor edited it on a Mac using Final Cut Pro and compiled it with DVD Studio Pro.

Although Reznor originally hired a filming company, he changed his mind based on cost and his experience from "The Downward Spiral" tour, wanting to capture the shows from a more realistic point of view. This decision allowed the crew to review the shots each night on the tour bus so they could tell what to focus on during the next show. As a result, the video is dark and smoky rather than polished, the cameras are sometimes shaky and there are no sweeping crane shots.

There are two different versions of the DVD set: one with a 5.1 Dolby Digital surround soundtrack and the other with a 5.1 DTS surround soundtrack. The DTS version does not allow on-the-fly alternate angle switching. Other than this, both sets are identical. This video was also released on one VHS tape.

The menus were designed to appear uniquely upon each viewing.cite news
