  1. Leaning closer towards the fiercer end of the guitar spectrum, 'Molé' is a splurge of intense and angry songs, a reaction to the filthy Bush era.
  2. With Molé, Jourgensen has mobilized the fatalism and fury that always rumbled through industrial and thrash music, and left everything else in the staging area.
  3. One of the band's mightiest and most consistent records.
  4. It's as enlightened and as interesting as Ministry has been in years.
  5. Houses of the Molé is signed, sealed, and delivered so powerfully that one can overlook the fact that it's basically Psalm 69 or The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste Part II.
  6. As nihilistic and hostile as ever.

    It's [an album] whose tricks... we've heard done before. [Aug 2004, p.115]

    Let alone the well-appreciated political intention of this magnificent album, it musically is a masterpiece of modern music in general.
