A Return to Form
Christopher Blosser | Kew Gardens, NY United States | 05/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Two points and I'll be brief:

1) Remember when Ministry played Industrial-Dance? Something with a beat and some degree of electronic manipulation vs. "all metal, all the time, with a few repetitive samples thrown in for kicks"? If you liked "Land of Rape and Honey" this may be your speed.

2) Enough with the Bush-bashing. You said your piece with "Houses of the Mole"; "Rio Grande Dubya" was -- lyrically -- a rather tired reiteration for those who didn't get your point the first time; "The Last Sucker" a last gasp (or should I say death rattle?), like an old hippie in a nursing home screaming into the void. Sorry, but why do I get the impression that Al's Bush-hatred functioned not so much as inspiration but a crutch as the wellsprings of creativity ran dry?

(I say this as a Ministry fan from the beginning).

Don't get me wrong rio grande blood is a great album, but I felt that it lacked industrial and it was all way too much overboard metal. This although having metal elements, has a more healthy dose of industrial. This my friends, shoulda been rio grande blood. Great album Al, but damn the "i hate Bush" thing is tired already....Great job to Raven and Tommy Victor too, and everyone else involved."
