  • Summary: The final album for the industrial rock band.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  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. Is The Last Sucker Ministry’s masterpiece closer to its career? Not totally, but it’s a powerful album that leaves you wanting more.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. The Last Sucker isn't as huge as "Psalm 69," but it is Ministry's most exciting record since.

    While there's nothing here as dense and biting as the Ministry slams of Bush Sr. in the '90s, Jourgensen can still pile on the jackhammer beats and clever samples.

    Al Jourgensen is bringing Ministry to a close, and truthfully, it's the right time. [Nov 2007, p.113]

    This is easily the best Ministry effort put forth. T'would be a shame if it were truly the final work. This is penultimate vengeance at This is easily the best Ministry effort put forth. T'would be a shame if it were truly the final work. This is penultimate vengeance at its best. Please give us the final stroke. We need it.
