it's gonna suck, isn't it?
Digging: The Flaming Lips - 7 Skies H3
"third final record"
They should've stopped after Houses of the Mole. They're practically a joke now.
How so? Al writes some decent thrash riffs and mixes it up well with industrial music. He hasn't changed since a whole hell of a lot since Houses of the Mole.
Good song btw.
Digging: Triptykon - Melana Chasmata
The music in general is decent, but I swear Al is trying too hard to be political and up to date so
much it hurts. It's fine when you do a subpar trilogy based on trashing a president, but when it
isn't good music (and makes With Sympathy look like a good album in comparison), there's a problem.
Never liked this band very much
Houses of the Mole has a few songs I love on it (like "World"), but honestly, the glory days of Psalm 69 are waaaaay behind them.
I find Houses Of The Mole one of their best records, it's short and tight. The rest of the trilogy is good, but Relapse was weak. This song sounds better than anything on Relapse though.
Digging: Chevelle - La Gargola
Hmmm, maybe their fourth final record will be a major comeback.
Neahh, Jourgensen is stuck in the same rut since 2006.
oh no... Oh no... This doesn't look good for Ministry.

"How so? Al writes some decent thrash riffs and mixes it up well with industrial music. He hasn't

yeah but thats the problem, he hasnt changed! no one listens to an artist wanting them to constatnly
stay in their comfort zone. btw his stuff isnt Industrial anymore, it thrash, and it wouldnt matter
if he made great thrash music but it sounds crappy, like watered down Slayer and has some of the
worst lyrics he's eve written, they are so centered on the Bush Administration that they don't hold
up out of the 2000's like a good political album should (ie Psalm 69). Listen to 88-03 Ministry Al
wrote great songs. Albums like Dark Side and Land of Rape and Honey are a million times better and
more unique than anything hes made since 04, Bush Trilogy was a joke. Sad too because he has a
strong backing band, guys from Static X and Prong, even guitarists from the 90's occasionally
I said this years ago ill say it again RIP Ministry, stay dead damn it!
You guys take him way too seriously. Go read some of his insightfully funny interviews.
They'll never release another Rape and Honey or Mind is a Terrible Thing
Nah, I have always known he is a bit nutty. Hell, he was on Alex Jones. Doesn't get worse than that.
"You guys take him way too seriously. Go read some of his insightfully funny interviews."
Ministry was always serious as far as the songs are concerned. but his humor never come past his interviews and seeped into his music.
love this band, glad al jourgensen came out of retirement for the fiftieth time
