  • 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.
