You can't get much Closer to God in Rock than Trent Reznor
Nov 28, 2008
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...
