  1. Their classic albums all had filler, but The Last Sucker has none. Each song is instantly identifiable. Riffs are huge, driving, and upfront. Songs maneuver crisply through choruses and bridges, avoiding the meandering that plagued previous efforts.
  2. Jourgensen's covers are usually all-party time, but this album holds no hope for and finds no joy in America and expresses it brilliantly.
  3. Is The Last Sucker Ministry’s masterpiece closer to its career? Not totally, but it’s a powerful album that leaves you wanting more.
  4. Elemental guitar riffs knock around the noisy yet balanced mix like grenades in a Maytag full of crankcase oil, as electronic beats launch forward, clash hand to hand, spit automatic fire....It works.
  5. The Last Sucker isn't as huge as "Psalm 69," but it is Ministry's most exciting record since.
