  • Summary: Al Jourgensen is back, and, apparently, angrier than ever. Included here on the industrial band's eighth album is a cover of Magazine's "The Light Pours Out of Me."

    One of their catchiest, most rewarding listening experiences to date.
  2. This is the throat-clutching Ministry that longtime fans have been waiting for: a grand mix of industrial rock and murder metal.
  3. Packs enough bite to nourish a Third World country. [Mar 2003, p.96]
  4. The sustained ferocity on display here is admirable. [7 Mar 2003, p.72]
  5. Songs such as "Unsung" showcase a reapplied talent for twisting archetypal metal riffs into new shapes.
  6. 60
    At several points... the duo belatedly attempts to revivie its peak period formula, but... it's as old-fashioned as a Lollapalooza 1992 T-shirt. Fortunately, Jourgenson and Barker's new ideas are better. [#14, p.140]
  7. Effort isn't lacking, but inspiration is.

    This is a great album from industrial's grandpa of rock. Do youself a favour. Buy this disc, then the live dvd, work your way back into Ministry's sonic napalm. Expand

    Am I the only one here who thinks this LP is weak? Ministry's last good album was "Filth Pig", now they are only repeating themselves. No single new idea on this album. Regression. I'm old Ministry fan and still I want progression, not recycling old ideas. Expand
