I never thought "Head Like A Hole" was the strongest song on "Pretty Hate Machine"; however, it was the obvious choice for a single.
As other reviewers have already said, the only track worth buying this single for is the "opal" remix which is by far the best remix of any Nine Inch Nails song. This is the only place you will hear this track, which is a shame because the US single was far better value with 10 tracks.
The other two tracks ("slate" and "copper" I think) are very average, but buy it for the third.

The prolific opener to Trent's first hard-hitting, angry and, at times, sombre and mysterious album, 'Pretty Hate Machine'. The second single to be released from the album, but how does it set the tone? The initial 'slate' version of the song being pretty much the album version, any self-respecting NIN fan can't help but be blown away by the screams of "I'd rather die than give you control". Even both remixes provide interesting and enjoyable versions of the explosive opening track. With retrospect, the song does tend to fade just a little with age, however, this song was just the ticket to give a pretentious 80s metal industry an electrifying kick up the backside - Thus giving birth to one of the most influential and creative musical geniuses of the 90s.

Even if you own the album version of Head like a hole I would recomend this single! This is a slightly better version of the song vocally. The background synth has been altered and for those who liked the 80's synth you hear part way through the song you will be glad to know it is in the single more frequently than the album version.
If you don't own pretty hate machine this is a sample of the music on the album and would recomend it to any unsure buyers as it will definitley win you over.

The US version is a better value 23 Oct 2004
By Brian Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The only thing the UK version of Head Like a Hole has going for it is the Opal mix. It's the only remix during the PHM-era that strays much from the original, and it's very good. As cool as it is, it's not worth buying this single for it, unless you absolutely have to have everything Trent releases. The US version has 4 remixes of Head Like a Hole(including the other 2 on this version of the single), an instrumental version, 2 remixes of Terrible Lie, and 3 remixes of Down In It(one of which is also found on the Down In It single). The Opal Mix is the best remix of Head Like a Hole, but there's nothing else to make this version worthwhile. It even costs more than the US version does. If you must have both versions of Head Like a Hole, get the other one first.

Worth the money! 10 Jan 2005
By W. M. Washburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a pseudo-collector when it comes to Trent Reznor's work. I'll grab both the domestic and import versions of singles, like this one and the 'Sin' disc, but I'm not going to shell out forty bucks for the Japanese version of 'The Downward Spiral,' or a bunch more for the two disc version of 'Broken.' That said, let me say that even aside from its worth to collectors, the UK edition of 'Head Like a Hole' is worth the money. For one, it gets rid of all the filler mixes and misplaced "Down In It" and "Terrible Lie" versions that the US edition boasts. And for two, it gives us the best remix of "Head Like a Hole": the opal mix. I waited years to buy this one, and I'm kicking myself for it now... because "Head Like a Hole (Opal)" beats the living snot out of every other remix that one can find on the domestic edition of this disc. Only three tracks, yes... but they are the only essential versions of "Head Like a Hole" in my opinion. Five stars for good abridgement.

A little over-priced 1 April 2000
By Tim Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Short, maybe. But I absolutely love "Opal," which isn't available on the domestic version. This is the one NIN tends to play live nowadays, and it has appeared on some bootlegs as the "Go-go mix."
Heh. Maybe. I dunno about that.
It's pretty cool because it draws from some totally new vocal tracks, as opposed to all the other remixes available on the US version. And that "you know, you know who you are" at the end is just chilling. Really cool... if you are a reasonably avid NIN fan who has some money to throw around, this is a must.

Complete your NIN collection! 23 April 2000
By "cenobite_" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, this one gets five stars for hardcore NIN fans (like me) only, because you get the Copper and Slate mixes on the 10-track-Maxi as well. So the Opal mix (like the others remixed by Trent himself) is all that's new, but it's worth it, because it's very different from the other Head Like a Hole remixes, and very stylish. However, if you're not a total Reznor junkie, you're better of with the 10-track. If you are, you got it already and just gotta have this one as well, don't ya? Doesn't have a Halo number, by the way.

Get it for the Opal Mix 7 Oct 2000
By El Reanimator-o - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'll put it briefly, 2 of these tracks are available on the U.S. release of Head Like a Hole, and they're probably the best two tracks on there. But, I'd recommend this one because it gets rid of 8 other so-so remixes and adds the Opal mix of Head Like A Hole. The Opal mix is pretty damned terrific. I'm glad I spent the money to add this to my collection. I'd recommend the US release if you're not a real big NIN fan, otherwise, I'd buy this one as soon as you can, because you won't be disappointed.
