The US version is a better value

"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!

"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."
Get it for the Opal Mix

"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."
