  • Death's Mercurial Pendulum - Ministry's "The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste"

    Nov 10, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Brilliant, cathartic, experimental....
    Cons: ....but kinda crappy sometimes

    Summary: I ask of you my fellow reviewers and epinionators, has an album ever entranced you so greatly, that every single word had to be calligraphy of tributary iridescence? Has it left you exhaling your passions for its high art onto the page in breathless ... read more

  • An Epic Album of devastating power and pummeling Industrial Metal!

    Nov 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Awesome beats and riffs, great distorted vocals, lots of energy!
    Cons: None! In my opinion, this album is perfect!

    Summary: As i write this review, I sit and wonder how many people actually take the time to dig deeper into the realm of Industrial music. Nine Inch Nails is one of the biggest names in the world of Industrial music. Ministry is either a tie with Nine Inch Nails ... read more

  • This Mind Is Influential

    Sep 6, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 'So what' and 'Cannibal song'
    Cons: Test.

    Summary: Reviewing this album some 14 years after its release, its sufficient to say, I can determine weather or not this one stood the test of time. While no doubt an industrial classic, the end conclusion is 50/50.. For the songs that hit home, they still car ... read more

  • Industrial music for thrash metal fans.

    May 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Like your music heavy and loud? Ministry delivers the goods.
    Cons: Some songs sound similar; others are junk.

    Summary: Ministry was (is?) a unique band, to say the least. What's fascinating about them is the blend of guitars with the harsh, sterile climate of industrial music. Throw the gutteral yelps of Allen Jourgensen in the mix, and you've got some stuff that stands ... read more

  • Filler is a Terrible Thing to Taste

    Dec 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Three brilliant hardcore tunes
    Cons: Three that outright suck, three that just sit there

    Summary: Ministry has always been a band that was hit or miss for me. They have created some of the greatest industrial/metal songs ever but have a tendency to wank way to much. Their 1989 album A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste is perfectly indicative ... read more

  • I still love it!!!!

    May 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: one of the best in the genre
    Cons: none whatsoever

    Summary: This was my introduction (along with Nitzer Ebb too) to the "industrial" genre of music. Back in High School a friend said to me."You listen to that Metallica stuff right." I says yeah. He goes "try this." He hands me ... read more

  • YYYEEAAAAAAARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!

    Jan 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Hard, fast, and trippy
    Cons: Some of the songs go a little out into the deep end of the pool

    Summary: Alan Jourgensen just nailed the feeling of absolute terror rebounding into sweaty rage on this testament to the wonders of addiction and hate. This is a record of riffs and Germanic beats. Think of KMFDM with no sense of humor, think of Slayer with no ... read more

  • Your Ears Are a Terrible Thing to Waste

    Jan 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: heavy and uncompromised; thought-provoking and can also create a mood
    Cons: Can't think of any, unless you hate rap so much that "Test" would bother you...?

    Summary: "The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste" is an excellent album that never gets old with me, and I think it's one of Ministry's best. The opening track Thieves gets played the most with me, but to give you a good idea of what to expect, here ... read more

  • Ministry - "The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste"

    Jan 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great industrial album, withstands the test of time.
    Cons: What the hell are they saying on "Dream Song"?!

    Summary: For 1989's "The Mind is a Terrible thing to Taste", Ministry completely did away with the pop elements of their sound. Relying more on the thrash metal guitars, distorted vocals, and use of samples, this album is considered by many to be their ... read more

  • Thieves and liars

    Dec 20, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: it's Ministry, it's heavy, and one of their best.
    Cons: a slower song but not all that bad of one.

    Summary: Ministry has come along way since Everyday is Halloween back in their debut of 80s electronic music. Al and the boys have evolved into the type of band that gets you pumped up and ready to think about the idiots in our society. This is the best Ministry ... read more

  • Breathe!

    Dec 16, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Highest overall quality for Ministry Albums
    Cons: A couple of slow tracks that you won't want to listen to every time

    Summary: "The best overall album Ministry put out" is usually how fans describe The Mind... I couldn't agree more. Strong tracks that make your imagination run wild course through the whole album. I fondly remember many Saturdays moving the lawn and ... read more

  • You will not kill!

    Dec 12, 1999 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Relentless music well crafted
    Cons: One sketchy track - "Dream Song"

    Summary: Al Jourgenson is a dynamo in the industrial music world. His side projects are legendary and countless, but it all comes back to Ministry. Ministry's 1989 release, "The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste" is still probably ... read more

    Pros: great to skateboard to.
    Cons: my parents didn't like it.

    Summary: This is ministry's best album. I like the hard industrial music they play on it. There are not alot of bands that can produce music like this. The songs are all a good length. This is one of those rebel rocker albums during the punk faze of the 90's If ... read more
