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...
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), 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!!...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...
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.

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... Read morePublished on Jan. 26 2004 by R. Brown

Possibly the best CD single to carry the banner Nine Inch Nails, this disc contains five remixes of the song "Closer" plus the original. Read morePublished on June 11 2003 by N. Durham
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 morePublished on May 9 2003
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 morePublished on March 18 2003 by vic
