Hi, I have a copy in which there is a 'doughnut-hole' shape smudge above the track time (4.17) for "Get Down Make Love". is this a printing error or something else im not aware of?

Quite possibly the best of the Pretty Hate Machine singles. The remix is far better than the original version. This single also has a great cover of Queen's Get Down Make Love, which is one NIN's best B-sides. The only down point is that each version of Sin is based of the same remix. This is a common flaw with maxi-singles though. This also has a very interesting sleeve. Highly recommended! 4/5

If it was not for a cover of Queen's "Get Down, Make Love," "Sin" would be a straight-forward maxi-single release. The "Sin" remixes are fine, but "Get Down, Make Love" is the best track on the maxi-single and warrants a purchase for any NIN fan.
