There's no question that Ministry's 1996 album Filth Pig was its weakest effort in years, but for anyone who thought the industrial engine had run out of steam, the band's side-project album Pure Chewing Satisfaction is concrete proof that Ministry's creative juices are still flowing blood red. Lard features the band along with ex-Dead Kennedys vocalist Jello Biafra, and this, the group's second disc, is an electrifying blend of speed, precision, and political satire. Returning to the propulsive, crunching guitars and cracking drums that defined Ministry in the early '90s, Lard makes up for lost ground, while at the same time plunging full-throttle into the future with cutting-edge production and biting, contemporary lyrics. "I went to Blockhead Video to rent a tape of people making love/Couldn't find no lovin' here/It's a family store, see here/ ... I settled for Faces of Death, but they rented it to some kid," sings Biafra in "Generation Execute" in his trademarked nasal whine. --Jon Wiederhorn

Lard still sounds great despite the long gap

"1990's The Last Temptation Of Reid was a great LP for the unique industrial band Lard. Seven years later, Pure Chewing Satisfaction arrived.
It's hard for one to deny that 97's Satisfaction is much more than variations of Reid at first (and they mostly are), but the key is to keep those variations interesting, and Lard does precisely that with top-notch production, and a NIN-ish atmosphere. Most importantly Lard, is political, preachy, dark, and therefore, almost sure to affend mainstream conservatives.
Biafra's social messages are filtered through humor, and the humor may sound somewhat dated, but it's an honesty that was reflective of the mid 90's where former President's Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton (at least in Jello's perspective) caused more disruption than solutions.
Standouts are : the driving War Pimp Reniassance, the atmospheric Moths, the dark irony of Generation Execute, and the pulsing beat of Sidewinder"
Fast guitars and drums and whining vocals make this the best

"This third album from Jello Biafra and Ministry is mostly outtakes from the "Last Temptation of Reid" sessions that deserved to be outtakes. Unintelligible drivel with half-assed lyrics. "I Wanna Be a Drug-Sniffing Dog" rips in true DK fashion, and "Sidewinder" provides some of Biafra's trademark creep-out ambience, but the rest is lazy. Collage-art packing is great reading, however. But also merely points out the facts that threats to our liberty and sanity deserve a stronger defense than this disc.--J. Ruch"
