Ministry's best album for years by some considerable distance, this is why I loved them in the first place, aggressive, relentless, angry and, er, catchy!

I'd almost given up on Ministry, buying successive albums more out of hope and duty than expectation and being more disappointed as the dross piled up, but this is what I always wanted.

I'd pretty much set aside the summer to listen to the new Tool album (also brilliant btw), I wasn't expecting competition from a band who's best years were a decade or so ago. If you loved N.W.O. Just One Fix, Thieves or Burning Inside, then get this.

Can't wait to hear this stuff live.

After Ministry's peak in the late 80's and early 90's with a run of quality releases culminating in Psalm 69 they really lost it fast. Filth Pig was an album I desperately tried to like to no avail, and Dark Side Of the Spoon was a joke I could only bring myself to listen to once. Their apparent demise was met with an "oh well" and a shrug of the shoulders. Which is what makes this return for the band such a pleasant surprise.
Thank whatever god your into for George W Bush. He pissed Al off to a point that the anger and derision came bursting out of the man resulting in this little gem. Having followed Ministry since Twitch, I have to say this is the angriest I've heard Al to this point, and it makes for a great listen. It is the natural successor to Psalm 69 that we all hoped would turn up in 1996, with all of the benefits of improved production and studio advances that came in 10 years. It's wonderfully heavy, the samples sound better than they ever did, and the addition of Prongs Tommy Victor sees some well munty riffs smack you up the side of the head in just the way all metal heads truly love.
I came to Rio Grande Blood late, even though I had friends telling me in 2006 to grab this album and a beer and turn it up to 11. The quality on offer makes me wish that I had done so. This truly is an album for all of you who loved Ministry at their peak, and for anyone who wants to know what the hell all of the fuss was about. Rio Grande Blood will show you in no uncertain terms why this band is held in such high regard by many of today's big acts. I know I'm another comeback behind now, but, I can't wait to wrap my ears round The Last Sucker after hearing Rio Grande Blood. Try listening to the title track. You'll buy it too.

From the first notes of this album, i knew it was going to be Ministry's heaviest album to date, and it didn't disappoint. I couldn't believe the speed of Senor Peligro, Fear(Is Big Business)and the title track Rio Grande Blood, these are absolutley THE heaviest and fastest songs they have ever recorded. It's no wonder i heard them being referred to as "Slayistry" going on these riffs. If you're a fan, buy it. I know lots of people went off them in their Filth Pig/Dark Side of the Spoon phase (not me, i love all their stuff), but if you like heavy Ministry, this is for you. Like the other reviewers said though, if you're expecting a return to Stigmata, you could be disappointed. If you're just after hefty tunes that bait Mr Bush, this is for you.

I was lucky enough to see them last year in London, probably the most insane show i have ever seen. Their next tour, for The Last Sucker, their final album, will most likely be their last, check them out if you can.

This is probably Ministry's peak of their kind of second period, retruning to the superfast thrash sound but still full on industrial along with it. Total W Bush hating, intelligent, dirty, goovy huge industrometal tunes. Stunning.
