This disc is a fantastic example of Nine Inch Nails' remix work. This has been a longtime favorite of mine. This, along with most of the Nails' singles, are not really for the casual listener. In fact, I wouldn't recommend it otherwise. If you're really into Nine Inch Nails, I would suggest picking this up. The original tracks alone are worth the disc. Also, this particular single was initially released on 3 different CDs. First was the 9-track version (which soon after went out of print) and the 2-disc version that is more commonly found. This single is still sold many places with almost identical packaging; it has the same artwork and the trademark Downward Spiral era cardboard digi-packs. However, very often, what you actually get is a 2-disc digi-pack with only the first CD. Just something of note for all you collectors out there. Nine Inch Nails is notorious for releasing multi-disc singles, and then taking them out of print after about a year or so. So check first before you pick this up. For the die-hard collector, I might also recommend the Further Down the Spiral set. There are 2 versions of that as well, the second of which being the UK release which I do believe is still in print. That version is actually worth a listen of only for the versions of 'Heresy' and 'Ruiner'.

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...

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 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), no words/voice in it but thats ok and it sounds like a computer game to me, but hey im goin skitzo, why would you trust me? DAMN YOU NINE INCH NAILS!! 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

I'm sure all of you have heard "Closer," NIN's most accessible (Yet their not) and poppy (But this one's not trying to be popular for $) single, in fact, one of their most poppy. This song has been put in six remixes, in which, if you're offended by that song, you'll only have room for two songs you'll actually like. Then if you're 100% strongly Christian, you may not like "Heresy", even though Trent's singning about paranoia of AIDS, but you still won't like the fact that he blames God. But those of you in any other religion and don't mind the sex-type music will *love* this.
Closer To God-- Techno metal remix of the original "Closer." At the end it has Trent screaming more, and it's better than the original instead. It doesn't have those "help me" parts either.
"deviation" mix-- This one's weird, but not for the average party-goer. Part of it reminds me of "Into the void", even though THIS was from the TDS-era.
the "further away" remix is the only song whis maxi-single could've gone with out. It gets a bit repetitive. But it's not that bad.
the "internal" remix is another excellor, so I can't fairly describe it. Also, same for the "precursor", which is aptly named. It also reminds me of "Into the Void" a bit.
What's left? A cover of Soft Cell's "Memorablia", MOTP remix retitiled "March of the f---heads" (Stompy remix indeed), and a 'blind' mix of "Heresy," in which has a lot of keyboards and disstortion and you can barely hear the words.
So at $... (Actually, where I bought it, $...), it's a reasonable-enough price to where if you hated it, you won't even give it a one-star. After all, it's pretty good as far as music quality.
