    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?
    • realmdemagic's avatar
      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.
