Product Description

The influence that doombringers Ministry have had on much of the industrial new-wave should not be underestimated, so it's fitting that Greatest Fits--a compilation of memorable back-catalogue moments--is released in 2001. Frontman Al Jourgensen's white-trash cowboy aesthetic was the stylistic glue in Ministry's fusion of industrial noise and heavy metal, paving the way for acts like Marilyn Manson to bring the sound of noise-rock to Middle America. Understandably, Greatest Fits airbrushes out Ministry's potentially embarrassing early synth-pop direction, instead concentrating on the nihilistic roar that made them famous. The screaming, siren-laden "NWO" and the militaristic jackboot crash of unlikely MTV hit "Jesus Built My Hotrod"--featuring a guest vocal from deranged Butthole Surfers' lead singer Gibby Haynes--are probably this compilation's most crucial moments, although an uncharacteristically anthemic, radio-friendly take on Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay" is more than just a curio. That the later tracks--"What About Us", taken from the score to Spielberg's A.I and a few picks from 1999's unremarkable Dark Side of the Spoon--sound little different to the band's pioneering late 1980s/early 90s output suggests the band has stagnated, but Greatest Fits remains about as definitive a document of their glory days as you'll find. --Louis Pattison

Bought it as a gift for a friend and they absolutely adored it. Good solid album and as you can expect with a Greatest Hits compilation album, it's full of good solid tunes.

Ok, One of my fave bands. This isnt essential for the die hard Ministry fans as all of these songs wont be hard to come by. Although there are 2 new songs, 'What about us?' and 'Supernaut' you have to ask yourself is it worth investing.I'd say yes for the collection istelf.. Less hassle of songschanging cd's around.
This CD charts the history of one of the best industrial bands, I'm a little dissapointed to see that nothing from Twitch made this album, but its tough to make a collection of 13 songs by a band of this standard.
For anyone hearing the wrath of Ministry for the first time here, my gosh you're in for a treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ministry of Fear 28 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
Awesome stuff: blows away the derivative NIN & Marilyn Manson - both of whom I am a big fan of. Angry, loud, truly scary in places, this is dark and visceral stuff. Music to smash your room up to, music to slit your wrists to, it's just rage with a backing track. Pity they've broken up now because these guys were pioneers in Industrial music, they really pushed the definition of what music can be.

Brilliant stuff but not for the faint-hearted (or eared).

5.0 out of 5 stars Ministry Greatest Fits CD 21 Nov 2011
By T. Lang
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love, love, love, Ministry and have done for years. This compilation is a good introduction to Ministry or just a shortcut to listening to their most popular releases. For me and lots of other fans I would add other tracks to this, such as Corrosion from Psalm 69 but, that's just me. You get an indication of where they started out and then the progression to Industrial Metal which is for me their greatest work.
