This just rocks. I was already a Ministry fan when I had heard of Revolting Cocks, originally from "Beers, Steers, & Queers" that was on an 80s compilation from a dance club I had frequented during the 90s. I wasn't cool (or old enough, heh) to be apart of the late 80s WaxTrax days in Chicago, & didn't live there either. Then, after figuring out my favorite Ministry is the middle Ministry, all these RevCo albums were right up my alley. It often feels to me like this is happy music for pissed off people, heh. Some songs are dancey, some are really aggressive, & the others, you're just not sure where to put em. Either way, if you're in a bad mood but still have enuff energy, this will suit... it you're REALLY mad at the world, you might have to put on another Ministry album (think Psalm 69) cuz this might be too toe-tapping & 'dancey' at times. Another interesting note: if you're not sure whether or not to get this or the original Beers Steers & Queers, get THIS one because it has "Cattle Grind" (which apparantly is noted here as previously unreleased), & "At the Top", which are both missing from that one... but these are a couple of the better songs.
"In the Neck" - will make you wanna raise your head & your arms to the sky & shout along. "Cattle Grind" makes you feel like you're in a fast-paced horror flick or a White Zombie video... or both. Yes, I'm well aware this was before WZ even became known to the mainstream, but you can definitely hear where 90s industrial/metal bands like NIN & WZ got their influence from (& interesting to note that there's a pic w/ a VERY young Trent Reznor on the back of this cd! however, I'm not sure if/how he was involved w/ RevCo on this particular compilation). "Stainless Steel Providers" is definitely club friendly, 1 of my favorites here... I love dancey songs, so sue me :-P "Something Wonderful" feels more 'Ministry-ish' of all of these here. If you're still wondering why you "Can't Sit Still" by the next track, it's cuz your foot is getting tired of tapping. Then your ears are addicted to the bassline on "At the Top", the slowest song here... but 1 of my faves. The last 2 tracks are good, but can be tiring at the same time... & like another reviewer pointed out, can get a little monotonous. Plus, I never listen to all 3 BSQ versions in 1 sitting. I'm not always in the mood for this cd, but when I am, it's the best sounding thing to blast out of my speakers... loudly, of course. Other Ministry releases also worth checking out, if you haven't already: The Land of Rape & Honey, The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, & esp. if you're a Ministry completist, the newer released Side Trax compilation.
