**1/2 Nine Inch Nails, "All That Could Have Been," Nothing/Interscope. On this document from NIN's 2000 tour (in stores Tuesday), the edgier songs gain some edge, but the more atmospheric stuff loses atmosphere. So that's a push. Perfectionist Trent Reznor is looser live but can't create the enveloping sonic spaces he gets in the studio. So that's a push too. The set list, if heavy on 1999's "The Fragile" album, is a career-spanning collection, but with no real revisions or revelations, and Reznor's someone from whom we should always expect revelations. So that's a minus. The companion DVD, with more songs plus visuals, is probably a better buy. --Steve Hochman
**1/2 Citizen Cope, "Citizen Cope," DreamWorks. Clarence Greenwood, a.k.a. Citizen Cope, tries too hard on this debut (due Tuesday), with his street-life short stories and snapshots, going heavy on biblical imagery (a confrontation with a Porsche-driving devil in "Salvation"), eccentric characters (the street-hustler portrait "200,000") and a wearily jaundiced vocal delivery. But the balance of quiet despair and perpetual hope bespeaks experience, echoed in the somber keyboard textures and understated rhythms. Affectations and all, at his best he's a John Prine for the hip-hop era. --S.H.
** Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Party, "Body and Soul," Real World. Recorded in Lahore shortly before the great qawwali singer's death in 1997, this set of four numbers (due Tuesday) was retrieved and mixed at Real World. The sound, however, leaves something to be desired, and Khan--despite the astonishing fluency of his melodic invention-- is a bit more subdued than usual. Any recording by this legendary artist is worth having, of course, but qawwali fans should look to his earlier work to experience the full, ecstatic eloquence of Khan's vocal art. --Don Heckman
