There's some actual effort here. It's a very weird album.
    Yeah it did remind me to "Dark Side of the Spoon", i do like that album so it wasn't a terrible listen for me.
    Many of you were complaining for "Heavy Metal Ministry", now we have a different kind of album, i get it's not the greatest Ministry album, but it's miles ahead of "Form Beer to Eternity", i also agree that it's a weird album, you can hear some of the "Surgical Meth Machine" influence there...

    Since 2004, we got the same album over and over again. Worse and worse than the one before. This one, Al decided to take a risk and do something different. It's a very weird album but it's the first ministry album in years that I feel some genuine effort. It's a fun listen. Ministry is past it's prime. But this is the first album since 2004 that made say "oh shit". The bar was set pretty low to be fair. It's not an album of the year candidate. But, Al did good here.

    random, but I went to a NIN autograph signing when AATCB came out. I was a teen who was geeking out, and was just getting into Ministry at the time thanks to hearing Trent namedrop the band and his involvement with Revco/Al's involvement with Get Down Make Love.

    when I approached the autograph table, instead of thanking them or saying I appreciate their music, I nervously said, "what do you think the best Ministry album is?" Trent mentioned Twitch, and Danny said "no way man, it's the Land of Rape and Honey" (or perhaps it was Trent who said LORAH/Danny said Twitch) , either way, it spurned a mini discussion between them and myself breaking down some of the songs from those albums. they seemed really happy to be talking about music other than their own, and they were really appreciative. coolest two mins of my teenage years for sure.

    Ok I gotta check this out now

    Also Trent saying Twitch is just about right to me. Makes a ton of sense.

    Damn right. What a great conversation to be involved in. If I ever met Trent I'd be more inclined to grill him about music he likes than anything else, I think.

    Initially I'm voting for Land Of Rape And Honey myself, but to be honest I don't think there's much in it between those early records. All truly brilliant in their own ways, which is what makes me sad about the quality of most of the new material. What happened to that genius mind?

    Reminds me - I'm just waiting to receive a copy of the Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? single. I actually have the 12" single (KY Jelly and all), but I'm keen to have HQ copies of the b-sides. Linger Ficken' Good is certainly flawed, but to this day remains a favourite. I don't think I ever loved anything Al did as much after that record, as good as some of it is.

    I absolutely hated the Antifa song. The recent video for Twilight Zone sounds a lot better and more of what I think of as the Ministry I liked growing up in the 90's.

    Antifa is probably the weakest song on the new album.

    I finally got around to listening to the new album. Honestly, this is probably the most I have enjoyed a Ministry album in quite a while. It is doubtful I'll ever listen to it again, but I didn't immediately want that hour of my life back as with some of the more resent output. I got a Filth Pig vibe from it over all. I could have done with so much of that quasi record scratching, but in general it wasn't so bad.

    Just finished listening to it. I agree with most of the comments here that it certainly has a Filth Pig vibe to it and it is the best Ministry record in years (IMO). Al always has better musical output when there is a Republican President, only issue with that is it requires us to have a Republican President...

    How much is it? I know ministry has a habit to overcharge? I'd go if it's cheap.

    Not terrible. But yeah, I'd be a bit conflicted as well. I liked the new album and they've been playing older songs. So it probably wouldn't be a huge loss. Something will probably end up on YouTube soon enough anyway I'm sure.

    Jordison inexplicably out for the tour. His spokesperson gave some nonsense about focusing on his solo work. Please. I'm gonna assume he's back on heroin or similar. Which begs the question, how bad do you have to be with drugs to be kicked off a Ministry tour?

    If he wants to look like a carny, he's succeeded. The forehead tattoo takes the cake though. It's not even good. It's like some drunk guy tried to draw something illuminati-ish, smeared it, then tattooed it. Probably what happened. The piercings are weird but not the end of the world. It's crazy to see how he de/evolved since 1980.

    Yeah I feel like that. If I lived in (or closer to) London I might consider it for a night out, but I can't bring myself to make much effort. Having Chelsea Wolfe in support is a tiny bit left field and I would like to see her at some point.

    One thing I would go out of my way to see is that Cold Waves line up. Super annoyed with myself for missing both Cocksure and Revolting Cocks when they came to the UK. If I win the lottery I'll be heading straight to Chicago, but I live in hope for a Cold Waves Euro tour at some point. I see FLA are touring with Die Krupps this year, which is part of the way there. Old-school industrial nostalgia package tours are the way forward. Bring it.

    So... I'm putting together a silly mix; all of the TV songs.

    I'm looking at: TV Song, TV II, TV III, WTV, Tv5/4Chan

    Am I missing any?

    I'm surprised there's never been a Ministry/Puppy tour at the very least. Al probably would think he's more of a headliner.
