Fans of KMFDM, NIN and Filter may have already heard of Ministry, but for those of you who are just getting into industrial - or have possibly overlooked them - Ministry, fronted by the almost unkillable Al Jourgensen is presented in a glorious cavalcade of hatred, misanthropy and disgust in this boxed set of five of the best ministry albums to date, his anger, drug abuse and refusal to die is plastered all over the peaks and infrequent lows of every song, buy this box set and be impressed, a musician who doesn't have a problem if you hate him or love him, he lives for himself, a crazier man has never existed in music.
High point has to be Rio Grande Blood.

this represents the cheapest way to pick up Ministrys absolute best output in one place, with some of the prices being offered (£9.59 at time of writing) its a great intro to the band for the price of a hits package

the inclusion of the often under appreciated and overlooked "twitch" is to be applauded as it will now be heard by people who perhaps wouldn't have gambled on a purchasing. its an album of eerie atmospheres you really need to hear it to understand where ministry came from

the 5 albums tell the story of the bands development from the guitar free twitch to the metallic monster that is Psalm 69

if you're a new fan or just curious get this and maybe "greatest fits" to see if you want to bother with the post Psalm 69 material
then maybe "side trax" & early trax- all available very cheaply

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.

Had never really been into Ministry that much, but this box set is so well priced that I thought I would give it a go. I prefer to have physical copies rather than using Spotify etc..
Pleased that I bought it as it introduces me to a band that I had mostly overlooked before.

but I very much imagine that these records were on the play list in such establishments. Not my kind of vibe.
