Back to the future!!!!,
This review is from: From Beer To Eternity (Ltd. Digi) (Audio CD)
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no Thanx' the whole album drags you at breakneck pace across the whole Ministry back catalogue sound yet never sounds out of date, in fact it sounds like the next level after the 'Bush' baiting trilogy and the excellent 'Relapse'.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!
