Ministry's best at a very good price.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
Rhino's original album series of releases offer excellent value as starts of collections by an artist, or a convenient way to get round to replacing vinyl copies. The first 5 Ministry albums appear here, which are the best that Ministry has to offer (following Psalm 69 Al Jourgensen's heroin use seriously affected the band's output, and remaining albums are patchy).
Twitch is a little rough, and is essentially an Al Jourgensen solo outing. Unmistakably Ministry, however.
Land of Rape and Honey is cyberpunk's soundtrack, all energy and distorted vocal.
The Mind is a terrible thing to taste takes Ministry in a more rock-oriented direction, and finalises the industrial sound that brought them success in the 90s
In case you didn't feel like showing up is a brief (6 track) live album, heavy on the samples and almost more "Revolting Cocks" than Ministry
Psalm 69 is the real gem here - the political N.W.O., Jesus Built My Hotrod, and Just One Fix stand out as highlights of a very strong album.
