4.0 out of 5 stars Dubya was good for something!, 1 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Rio Grande Blood (Audio CD)
After Ministry's peak in the late 80's and early 90's with a run of quality releases culminating in Psalm 69 they really lost it fast. Filth Pig was an album I desperately tried to like to no avail, and Dark Side Of the Spoon was a joke I could only bring myself to listen to once. Their apparent demise was met with an "oh well" and a shrug of the shoulders. Which is what makes this return for the band such a pleasant surprise.
Thank whatever god your into for George W Bush. He pissed Al off to a point that the anger and derision came bursting out of the man resulting in this little gem. Having followed Ministry since Twitch, I have to say this is the angriest I've heard Al to this point, and it makes for a great listen. It is the natural successor to Psalm 69 that we all hoped would turn up in 1996, with all of the benefits of improved production and studio advances that came in 10 years. It's wonderfully heavy, the samples sound better than they ever did, and the addition of Prongs Tommy Victor sees some well munty riffs smack you up the side of the head in just the way all metal heads truly love.
I came to Rio Grande Blood late, even though I had friends telling me in 2006 to grab this album and a beer and turn it up to 11. The quality on offer makes me wish that I had done so. This truly is an album for all of you who loved Ministry at their peak, and for anyone who wants to know what the hell all of the fuss was about. Rio Grande Blood will show you in no uncertain terms why this band is held in such high regard by many of today's big acts. I know I'm another comeback behind now, but, I can't wait to wrap my ears round The Last Sucker after hearing Rio Grande Blood. Try listening to the title track. You'll buy it too.
