My work is finished but it s never done. Ministry Founder Al Jourgensen
Two years ago in September 2007, Ministry Founder and Frontman Al Jourgensen set out to retire his 30-year project and exit gracefully in a blaze of glory with the release of Ministry s final studio album The Last Sucker to high critical acclaim, with critics touting the release as Jourgensen s career best. In tandem with his exit strategy, throughout 2008, Jourgensen and crew assaulted sold-out audiences around the world with the final Ministry C U LaTouR live performances. These live performances are captured and archived forever in the Spring 2009 audio/visual releases of Adios...Puta Madres.
Now, in Fall 2009, Jourgensen gives us his final chapter and epilogue with The Last Dubber remix. Given the political and economic landscape that has transpired within the global community within the past two years, revisiting Jourgensen s remix of his final words are hauntingly prophetic in hindsight and eerily poetic.
The Last Dubber is the fourth in a series of remix releases from Jourgensen s imprint 13th Planet, and serves up a cross-genre of trance metal that pleases both metal and club enthusiasts alike, and as Jourgensen delves deeper into the studio now that his doppelganger is finally put to rest, expect to future remix releases from 13th Planet with an array of collaborations between Jourgensen and artists of many genres.
Industrial Background Music

"It looks from the liner notes like this cd is mixed by a studio engineer, which is a disappointment from the standard slew of bands that mix different tracks on a remix album. The overall effect is a homogenous heavy old-school industrial sound. That sounds like a good thing, but it has no punch. The songs are all mixed without structure, with the vocals too far in the background.
Don't get me wrong, the sound itself is good, but it doesn't change, or really hold your attention. This is a fine cd for party background music or as maybe part of a mix set, but you aren't going to want to rock out to it on your own."
A let down.

"I love Ministry, and loved The cd The last sucker. So when i heard there was going to be a remix i could not wait. I was sadly disapointed. The songs are all remixed in a very slow and melodic way. Gone is the intesity and angsnt of the album. I really felt for the first time with Ministry , since Dark side of the spoon, that i had wasted my money."
