I have a CD who’s face says it is Further Away but it plays the Closer To God songs. I’m not sure if it came with Further Away or Closer To god because I ordered both at the same time. Can anyone help me set up a discogs page for it?

Arguably the most requested song at every party and night club in the US in 1994.

Finally got a copy of this in the wild after years of searching and am blown away by the quality of the pressing. The tracks are pressed nice and loud, rendering surface noise a non-issue, along with tracks like Memorabilia and Closer (Precursor) sounding unnervingly clear, crisp, and layered. It's like hearing these songs for the first time all over again!

This disc (and its sibling 'Further Away') are a joy to play on vinyl. I collected both of them on CD many years ago and had been after them on vinyl for years. I finally caught up to a copy of 'Closer To God' recently and was not disappointed.
All tracks sound amazing on vinyl but 'Closer To God' and 'Memorabilia' are particular stand-outs for giving your speakers a workout.
If you're a Halo collector and find either this disc or 'Further Away' snap them up.

Don't be fooled, this is what the official promo CD looks like:

This seems an unofficial pressing

I have a copy that has both discs in one set. It's a digipak with two trays. Can't find it anywhere on here.

NIN's best Maxi-Single release to date. On top of the original track, there is a newly recorded track "Closer to God", a dark trance like take on "Heresy" (remixed by the legendary David Ogilivie), "March of the Fuckheads" (which claims to be a remix of "March of the Pigs" but shows no resemblance) and a handful of Closer remixes. The precursor remix is a dark and almost haunting version that was also used in the movie "Seven". The further away and internal versions are complimentary tracks to each other and turn the song into a nightmarish frenzy. Finally, the deviation mix was done by Meat Beat Manifesto and adds an urban feel that would be perfect for the dance floor. This is a such as good release, that it should be in every fan's collection. 5/5
