5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the future!!!!, 11 Feb 2014
Uncle Al takes it right back to the beginning and emerges with what I believe to be one of the best and most complete Ministry albums of all time.

From the opening of 'Hail...' to the sample laden/hardcore speed of 'Side FX' and the sublime 'Lesson Unlearned', 'Perma War', 'Perfect Storm' and 'Thanx but no Thanx' the whole album drags you at breakneck pace across the whole Ministry back catalogue sound yet never sounds out of date, in fact it sounds like the next level after the 'Bush' baiting trilogy and the excellent 'Relapse'.

Al has stated this is to be the farewell album dedicated to the late 'Mike Scaccia' and 'Raven', my thoughts though are 'don't stop now' keep going there is obviously a lot left in the fertive mind of Uncle Al if this album is anything to go by.

There's not a bad track on it and if it was sent out on a major label with flags and waving then the critics would be lapping it up and lauding it with excess/success...but then Al never listened to the critics and that's why Ministry remain so important in alternative music.

If this is the last hoorah then grab it now and enjoy the party...oh and Al here's a cryptic clue...maybe we'll see u on a Rehabilita-Tour!

This review is from: Speed Ballads (Audio CD)
Having seen a resurrected republica support neds atomic dustbin recently I thought I'd take a look at their back catalogue. The second of two full albums speed ballads kicks of with the title track with a full force of electronic rock sound and doesn't let up. Maybe not as hardcore as say garbage but definitely a good alternative. Buy it and go see saffron and the guys in March 2014.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best NMA Album and possibly the best Album of 2013, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this 4 stars, more fool me because if you listen to it a few times it really is a brilliantly accomplished piece of work, the multi layer of sounds (I love the chimes on the title track) and the lyrical content (Justin hasn't lost his bite and vision). This has possibly 2 of the best NMA tracks I've heard in 'March In September" and 'Kinevel' (I get chills just listening to this one), whilst the title track and 'Stormclouds' must rank as high as some of their 'acclaimed' work as well. In fact the whole album just oozes class and is possibly the greatest 'new' album from an old band that I've heard since Killing Jokes 'Absolute Dissent'.

This in the real world would be the best album of the but then we live in an 'X factor' box these days so it will go un noticed by all but the fans and a few that are lucky enough to stumble upon it by word of mouth.

Lets hope the band continue in this vein its great to see them moving forward like this.

And if you get to see them 'live' then do because these songs as well as their back catalogue really will astound you.

5 stars now i've given it more time

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected!, 13 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having had a gelaskin on my 30gb video ipod (steam punk) I couldn't wait to receive this for my iphone, however I was extremely disapoointed that for the price basically all you get is the back sticker, no screen protector or front wrapper or button cover, the ipod gela has a screen protector, front cover including click wheel cover and a back cover. For the price of this iphone one I felt rather cheated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great, 13 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is very well constructed and fits the phone well the let down is that there is no hole cut into the front fascia to allow you to see the flashing indicator light when the case is closed. If you can live with that the product is very good, add the front cut out and its 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to their most potent best, 28 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Excelsis (MP3 Download)
Having reformed with the original lineup the Joke return with a masterclass of avant garde post punk, all the tracks here are reminiscent of Killing joke at their very best through the early to mid eighties....think Revelations, Nighttime et all and you won't be disappointed.

5 stars for a band who when produced properly and actually sit down to write melodies have a power greater than most of their contmporaries could only dream of. Far superior to the attempted thrash/death metal sound of Hosannahs which in my opinion doesn't suit the Joke, whilst Jaz may not be the greatest singer but when he actually speaks the words clearly like here on In Excelsis and Ghost of Ladbrook Grove he achieves more power than simply grunting and shouting his way throug the track. Youth as ever is sublime on bass, Geordie has some great guitar to compliment him and the return of Big paul on drums only adds to the mix.

Bring on the feast of fools...my only criticism is WHY ONLY TWO UK GIGS!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Hurrah!!!, 4 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Sucker (Audio CD)
Having loved ministry since TLORAH and MIND... albums I am sad to see uncle Al bowing out, but what a send off. Taking elements from all the best Ministry albums along with snippets from side projects such as PailHead/Rev Cos etc. the last sucker is a fantastic goodbye from an innovative band. All through the album you can hear elements of Ministry past and present. This is definately one of the best from the band and if it were their first it would probably be lauded with praise, but I suppose they will bow out on their own high.

As inventive and of the now as ever buy it, and say goodbye.

5.0 out of 5 stars A return to form, 8 Aug 2007
This review is from: Korn: Untitled (Audio CD)
Not since Untouchables or Issues have I enjoyed a Korn album this much, it really is a return to form, with good songwriting and power through clever guitar work, lyrics, production and the addition of other instruments. Ok if you like early Korn don't go here, but for me their best work was on the two albums mentioned above where power is achieved not through shouting or over production but through strong songwriting and melodies backed up with good musicianship.
All the songs on 'Untitled' really are powerful whether slower or faster and after a couple of listens you become aware of how clever Korn really are at writing good songs.
100mph and shouting don't always = power.
Welcome back Korn

5.0 out of 5 stars Nu-Metallers leave the tag behind, 21 July 2006
This review is from: Untouchables (Audio CD)
Having never been a fan of nu-metal I prefered the more musical and melody approach by Korn on this awesome cut. The songs have probably more power and force then their predecessors yet JD and the guys have a more measured and somewhat adult approach. Hollow Life, Thoughtless, and Here to Stay are monumental. Possibly many Korn fans didn't like the new approach and abandoned the album after a couple of plays, give it three or four plays and it'll definately get inside your head and stay. New fans to Korn start here and work back, old fans re-visit and try again then move forward. More like this please.
