Yes it may not be classic Ministry but it has a certain charm,Ministry crusing happily at speed rather than firing on all cylinders and taking the twisty road.I actually like all their albums to some degree,they all have good songs.I like the idea of a prevously drug addicted singer with several near death experiences under his belt ranting,'I'm not dead yet' on an unexpected comback album,makes perfect sense to me.Apart from that Al has always had a sense of humour,I mean jesus built my hotrod,1000 homo dj's,acid horse and what about the new buck satan stuff?There's always been absudity amongst the political comment and apocalyptic visons.I have to say at this point I really love With Sympathy,their first album and that was electro pop,and my dream team Ministry comback would be an Adrian Sherwood production,but this will do fine for now.

I am a HUGE Ministry fan - but must say I am disappointed with this long-awaited return....I was sad when Al called it a day, and I am so happy he changed his mind about retirement....but the album is sadly more fillers than killers....we should get George W Bush back in power to get Al all angered and at his best....as Barrack Obama is leaving Al with little inspiration....last thing we need is Ministry following the likes of Metallica and churning out half rate songs, but that is what this CD is....apart from 99percenters and Ghouldiggers the rest of the CD is un-catchy, un-inspiring and un-original - something Ministry never was.... lets hope this is Ministry's relapse.....

Five years after the laughably-final "Last Sucker", the allegedly retired Ministry have exhumed themselves. Did anyone miss them? Hardly. Given the furious work rate once they got off a major label, with an album every year, as well as a live album, 2 covers albums, and 4 remix albums, you can hardly say Ministry ever really split up : it's only 17 months since their last studio release. Add in the 3 studio records and 3 remix records by RevCo in the same time, and well.... who cares?

"Relapse" is the worst Ministry record in thirty years. The lyrics are obsessed with respectively, a small palette of annoyances that infuriate Al Jourgenson : namely managers, ex-managers, bands, ex-bands, drugs, drugs, drugs, wives, ex-wives, and the sunshine. The opening track is buried in spoken word rants and raves of no eloquence and little point except to bore the listener. The vocals are pedestrian : lacking the distinctive style of previous records, but at least, somewhat memorable choruses. The production is appallingly limp. With programmed drums, and thin guitars, and weak bass, the traditional, and well known wall of sound Ministry made most of their lives making is barely here. It's the least effective, most unexciting, boring record Ministry have ever made, with nothing of any note, and sounding like a pale imitation of the band they used to be. Avoid. Remember them a different way : if you can.

Ok, for several reasons, this album is going to divide people. I'm not entirely sure what it is the Ministry faithful don't like about this album; perhaps the fact that it sounds a bit too much like Rob Zombie? You've got melodies in there, guitar solos, choruses, conventional-sounding, double-tracked thrash metal riffs. If you've never heard Ministry before, but are already into any metal bands from mid 90's onwards, you'll lap this up. Or, frankly, if you're just into riff-heavy thrash metal (like me), you're probably going to enjoy it - when I mention what I think to be the stand-out songs, maybe you'll get a better picture of where I'm coming from.

I have to point out that I'm not the worlds biggest Ministry fan. I've had more of a love/hate relationship with Ministry that caused me to give up on them at Psalm 69. I like pretty much everything off "The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste", but "Land of Rape and Honey" and "Psalm 69" have way too much of what I would call tedious filler material around the more memorable moments.

Stand out songs for me are: Ghouldiggers (Pantera-like riffs in there), Double Tap, Kleptocracy (opening sounds like Megadeth), 99 Percenters and Bloodlust (despite sounding like Linkin Park in places). For something very off-the-wall, the Glitch Techno remix of Bloodlust is worth a listen if you have an open mind.

I think this is an awesome comeback album from Ministry. I'm glad Al has moved onto other topics than President Bush. I find all of the songs catchy, powerful and well produced. I love it.

I haven't listened to this enough for an in depth track by track review but it really doesn't deserve the slating it's had. Ministry don't sound like they did 20 years ago, go figure, it's called progress & developing as an artist. If you followed Als blogs at all prior to this release you'd know how excited & into it he was. Also if he'd released this under a different name the same nay sayers would be slagging him for not just using the Ministry name.

Then again I liked Animositisomina so what do I know? Guess you had to buy it to review it so last laughs on you.

For some reason Al digs Ministry up to make yet another turkey in a long line of turkey's since House's Of The Mole in 2004. You didn't have to be a genius to know this was going to be complete and utter crap from start to finish. On top of stomping on Ministry's street cred with all the crappy remixxxxxxxx albums etc he's even gone back to using the logo Ministry used when they kicked ass? Do yourself a favour and buy Killing Joke's new album MMXII which drops in a few days.....they're light years ahead as usual. Please don't insult Ministry or its fans any more Mr Jourgensen.
