So now that Relapse is out, which are your favorite albums and songs ?rAlso, will you guys attend to any of the shows on this tour ?
The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste
Most consistent and best album as a whole. I love Burning Inside, Never Believe and Thieves. Breathe is also really cool. Still, nothing here is bad.
Houses Of The Mole
I think this is one of their underrated albums. It's fast, heavy and each song is different, unlike the rest of the Bush Trilogy and even Psalm and Land Of Rape And Honey.
My favorite songs here are Warp City, World, Waiting and No W
The Land Of Rape And Honey
There's a lot to like here but some of the songs aren't that well established and a bit unfocused. Still, is a great album and Deity, The Missing, Stigmata and the title track are really good.
Their most commercial album and it does have some of their best songs but the second part of the album is lacking. Jesus Built My Hotrod is fucking great and also N.W.O, TV II and Just One Fix.
The most underrated Ministry album and harder to digest than others. Still, it grew on me after repeated listens and I think this is as good as Psalm 69 but on a different perspective. Lava, Filth Pig, Reload and Lay Lady Lay are fucking cool.
Rio Grande Blood
Their heaviest album IMO and maybe this is the reason I didn't like it so much. I get tired of it at the end. Still, is a great album. Senor Peligro and LiesLiesLies are the best here and really good. However, the title track and Fear (Is A Big Business) are not to miss.
The Last Sucker
Their final album, and third part of the Bush Trilogy, before Relapse was announced. It's kinda hit and miss, but there are some really cool tracks here like Die In A Crash (a lot punkier than what Ministry usually do), Let's Go, the title track.
Dark Side Of The Spoon
A lot of people see this album as really weak and to be honest is not one of their best but it is still enjoyable. Kaif, Supermanic Soul and Bad Blood are really worth checking.
A big disappointment and Bloodlust is the only great song here and a must. Double Tap and 99 Percenters are enjoyable.
I never got into this album, I don't know why...I tried to! I only like Animosity, The Light Pours Out Of Me and Leper.
A transition album to the more aggressive The Land Of Rape And Honey. I am not that big of a fan of this album. Over The Shoulder and Just Like You are cool though
It's a mediocre album and nothing like Ministry. A new wave record. Still, it's worth checking out to hear the original Ministry.
|I've only had 2 Ministry albums the Last Sucker which is great, and I have psalm 69 somewhere but it mysteriously disappeared before i can remember listening to it.|
i'll probably get round to listening to some more at some point. Really sounds like they should have kept the band dead though.
|4 and 1 are their best|
|7 was amazing|
|@thumbcrusher Houses Of The Mole is better Psalm 69. It is somewhere in between Psalm and The Last Sucker. That is how I see it, only it has better songs than Sucker. It is really enjoyable and easier to digest than their late 90s work.|
|cool, might check that one out next|
|Relapse is a huge turd, but I had zero expectations for it. I knew it was going to be awful, but not THIS bad. I'm not a fan of the last two albums either. Filth Pig, Dark Side, Land of Rape and Honey and Twitch are my favorites by far.|
|switch 2 and 6 and make 4 one|
