I'll just first state the obvious, this has too many remixes of Closer. And I'll state the obvious once again, why did I buy it to begin with if I didn't want a bunch of Closer remixes? Well let me tell you. I was obsessed with Nine Inch Nails for about a year and was one of those unfortunate souls that feels the need to "collect all the halo's". I've moved on now, honest I have, The NIN are still great, but hopefully now I can help you, the fledgling Nine Inch Nails fan, to not make the same mistakes that I did.
Closer To God is a mediocre version of Closer. The only redeeming quality is that it at least took the song in a different direction. Personally I like the direction it had to begin with, so I don't care for this remix. Closer (Precursor/Deviation/Internal/Further Away) is a rather strange remix which I have to give merrit to for being extremely creepy at times. Heresy (Blind) is a great remix of Heresy. I almost like it better than the original if it weren't for the fact that the original is one of my favorite Nine Inch Nails songs. Memorabilia is an extremely repetitive cover of a great Soft Cell song, I usually skip this one. March of the F**kheads is a neat beat-driven instrumental which is somewhat awkward. It sounds as though Trent spilled some silverwear on the floor, just happened to record it, and then looped it to make a song. The final track, Closer, is about having sex with farmyard animals, but the music is neat.
It's a descent collection of songs, and I think it's worth getting if you're a big Nine Inch Nails fan, especially for the, what I like to call; F**king weird Closer remixes.

ok, a lot of the remix cds i hear get so old i want to pour bleach on them and then drop them from the grand canyon, but this is an exception...this is one of those cds you have the need to bow down to...cuz its better than you and your grandma combined!...ive also labled this as my scariest album, because it often makes me jump during the joy of listening, and afterwords im like, "oh my god,,,somebodys in my house,,,somebodys gonna kill me...*tear*" because i always hear noises afterwords, and im always lookin around for stuff, such as serial killers and giant pigs, maybe im just goin skitzo.
every song on here gets a ten out of ten...it contains.:
5 remixes of closer(all of which are perfect to a pinpoint).......the original closer.....heresay remix.......memorbilia(new song),pretty good and strange like always......march of the f*c*heads(new song), it sounds like a computer game to me, but hey im goin skitzo, why would you trust me?
DAMN YOU NINE INCH NAILS!!...im so confused anymore...i dont know whether to bow down to nine inch nails because they are the best band of all time or smack them for making me go crazy, lookin for serial killers under my bed 'n stuff...anywayz...
peace away
amen.......

How many ways can Trent sing Closer to me? Infinitesimal. Reznor brought so many things back into rock that were missing in the 80's; unique style, interesting instrumentals, angst ridden lyrics...and sex.
This CD is what its all about Alfie. Try and create or find a CD titled (in any way) "sexy tunes" and one form or another of this song will be on it. I believe I have every version that Reznor has produced. He brought real sex into rock n roll rather than the tiresome innuendo; and this CD is only one fine example of his inventive and inspired work. Also containing 'Heresy' and 'Memoribilia', and a great remix of 'March of the Pigs', nonetheless the attraction here is the many different and appealing mixes of 'Closer'.
If you really want my humble opinion, the original 'Closer' is still my favorite, followed by the live version on 'And All That Could Have Been'. Don't miss this, even if you are not a NIN fan, surely you have heard this in your dance clubs, and you should pick this CD up with the multiple versions of 'Closer' so that you can bring yourself closer to the genius that is Trent Reznor. We would not have rock or industrial today if it wasn't for NIN and this is probably the one song that brought the staggering flocks into the NIN folds. Bottom line, this is a "must have" along with NIN Pretty Hate Machine,Downward Spiral, and And All That Could Have Been. Sexy music will never be the same again...

The best remix CD from Nails. A must for the halo collector. The 1st remix of closer (closer to god) was so popular it even made it's way onto some hard rock radio stations. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars You know.....
This song is decent, however, there are like 6 tracks that serve absolutely no purpose what-so-ever. It's expensive for how inane it is. Read more

There are 6 different versions of Closer including the album version, but all are entirely different and not overly repetitive like some remixes can get. Read more
