I'm still trying to forget what the 80's sounded like RoG. Yeah it was funny and if it was an old school horror movie it'd be great because you could point and laugh and go "man that's lame but I can't look away". It's an album however and there's no cool visuals. Seriously I'm wondering what the hell the appeal is. It's like looking at an office cubicle decorated with annoying pics of fucking babies dressed up like fruits and vegitables with kitchy sayings that are really only appealing to soccer moms. Most of the time is spent "this was cool?".

The second I saw this album was up for review I knew... knew in my heart of hearts that D-Mon would be the first to poop out a rant. If I was a betting man I could have just retired rich. RoG, I think I understand what you are trying to say about this album... it's an amusing and catchy "time capsule". Is it the best music ever made? No. But it has a novelty factor and it shows what a slew of early 80's dance, trance, electro and industrial bands sounded like in their early years... listen to (D-Mon's head is about to explode...) Nine Inch Nails first album "Pretty Hate Machine" and then compare it to their first EP "Broken". Like night and day. But a good transgression. Kind of like When Janis Joplin sucked and then.... well... she always kind of just stayed in that spot didn't she? I will always prefer the more aggressive stuff but there will always be a place in my heart for the early synth poppy stuff... mostly just to annoy D-Mon. Oh and I am picking up one of those "Babies dressed up like fruits calendars today."

How could they "go from from a new wave synth pop band to one of the loudest industrial metal bands in existence over a period of 10 years"? One word: heroin.

Horrible. Just horrible. And don't get me wrong, it's not that I hate the 80's or synth pop, hell, I think Devo and A flock of seagulls are great. But this is just an abortion. Thankfully Ministry got a lot better since then.

Perfectly said ROG. Love this album. My favorite was always "Effigy (I'm Not An)", its a perfect start to an awesome 80s industrial album.

Funny this review should pop up, because I was just listening to this album the other day. In addition to the US release, I also own the European CD version. That version of the album is titled Work for Love, and the songs are in a different sequence. "What He Say" was retitled as "Do the Etawa," which I actually prefer just because of the cheesiness factor. In addition, there's the European vinyl version, which has a different (and even more hilarious) cover.

Aries, do you have a pic of that European vinyl album cover? I'd definitely like to see that!

"Everyday is Holloween" is my favorite Ministry song (on the 12 inch singles CD). Then I go for "Stigmata", "Jesus built my Hot Rod", and "Burning Inside." Check out the youtube "commericials" for their last album.

Sorry it's so small, but it's all I could find. I have no scanner, unfortunately.
