This is the debut album by Ministry leader Al Jourgensen's most infamous side-project band. A sort of underground supergroup, its early contributors included core members of electronic music innovators Front 242 and Ministry, plus solo artists Chris Connelly and Luc Van Acker. Most of the tracks are hard, bare-bone sonic assaults built predominantly around brutally programmed drums. Jourgensen's inventive skill with sound-creation and rhythm programming is abundant on tracks such as "We Shall Cleanse the World" and "Attack Ships on Fire." Bass riffs are coldly propelling, particularly on "38" and the gloomily blasphemous "No Devotion." The variety of vocalists adds to the overall color of the album. --Mark McCleerey

Like a P------ Off Industrial Devo

"If you walked through the now long gone Wax Track records shop in Chicago any time in that late 80's, there was a very good chance that this record was playing.The industrial-club sound got so hot in Chicago at that time that Ministry's "Halloween" was used by Heilimen in an Old Style commercial.This is an odd sound in that doesn't feel much like music until you hand yourself over to it. The hook here is rythem...and it sneaks up on you.Later Cocks' work, like later Ministry, started to blur into a more savage metal sound, losing the clear, savage percussive bleatings that makes this album so addictive.As far as this album is concerned, I have always felt that there aren't nearly enough pieces of cover art that feature naked busty women kissing dogs.Fun."

"Heck yes! The music in Big Sexyland could very well be Al Jourgensen's best. The music here rocks you, and pounds you into submission. Big Sexyland is an experience to savor!"
The album that took industrial music out of the dark ages.

"This album first heard in 1986. Al Jourgensen interviewed KUSF San Francisco. Einsturzende Neubauten bye bye. Big throbbing beat come. BOOM-KAWAKAA-BOOM-KAWAKAA! 150, 160 BPM -- go higher? You bet! Speed new drug. You buy!"
