Editorial Reviews

Digipak. Uncles Al's Call to Arms! 'It's a Party and you are all invited!' This album is a cover release ho-down party with Uncle Al Jourgensen and his roving band of co-conspirator pirates Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Tommy Victor (Prong), Paul Raven (Killing Joke), Sin Quirin(Revolting Cocks) and Plastilina Mosh. 2008 is the year of the band's final World tour entitled 'C U LaTour'. Per Al, 'We are still a rock band, we can still have fun. We don't just bitch about Bush and global oligarchies. As I bring Ministry to a close, it's important to remember that behind whatever hammer we were swinging at the time, there was always a wry chuckle to be found too.'

This is an o.k. collection. It's not as bad as a lot of the reviewers are saying. At the same time, it's not going to be my favorite Ministry album.

The new covers: There's a real mix bag of classic rock covers here from the Rolling Stones, T Rex, Deep Purple, Mountain, ZZ Top, Golden Earing, and Ram Jam. The covers are good. Not the best that Ministry have done, but quite listenable. It's a decent enough selection of songs, and their cover of Louis Armstrong's "What a wonderful world" is pretty hilarious.

The old covers: This is the annoying part. They include three tracks that most all Ministry fans already have. There's The Doors "Roadhouse Blues", which appeared on "The Last Sucker", the band's most recent album. They also include "Lay Lady Lay" from the "Filth Pig" album and "Supernaut" from the 1000 Homo DJs album (which Ministry just reissued in 2004 on a CD called "Side Trax"). These are all great tracks, but it is annoying that the band reissued three songs that are very easy to find and two songs that were released within in past four years.

What's missing? First, and most important, Ministry's cover of Skinny Puppy's "Smothered Hope" from the B-side of the "Burning Inside" single. This is a live track from the tour when Skinny Puppy's Ogre joined Ministry on stage, and it is -in my opinion- the finest cover that Ministry ever did. As a huge Skinny Puppy fan, I will even admit that I find the Ministry version of that song to be far superior to the original. It would have been a great inclusion because it is still a very difficult track to find. Some easier to find, but glaring omissions, are also missing from this CD.

Some cover cds just suck. Like those terrible cleopatra records ones with like 50 goth bands doing bad spooky versions of the songs we love. This however is different. Fantastic covers, some songs oyu may not like you'll like, and Burton from FF and Ascention of the Watchers is on here too. I guess a little added treat. Also al let's us off with a cover of it's a wonderful world. Again, and again, and again. Each a little differnt. One half easy listening half aggressive, one all aggressive, one all easy listening. Makes you kinda choke up and cry really. With ministry it really IS a wonderfull world. Now that they're done, and once his tour is over, well, what's there to life for?

Some many people have been giving Al and company crap for this release saying it is not the same Ministry as they know and love. Well DUH!!!!!! it is a covers record, not an album about politics or drug problems. Just sit back and listen to there version of some great rock classics.

"Radar love" and "Bang a Gong" are my personal favorite of the newer covers. "Space truckin" is fun as well with Tommy Victor on vocals. The only complaint I have is that they included "roadhouse blues" on here which is stupid because that came out last year on "The Last Sucker."

It is a fun rock/metal record of covers, have a beer and enjoy.

Great album: takes the old tunes to a higher lever yet maintains the integrity of the original, ie the "feel" of the number. Like the heavy sigh in Bang a Gong. Like the cow-bell in Mississippi Queen. Like the harmonica in Roadhouse Blues. Like the actual beauty of Lay Lady Lay. The album art is terrific. Band members as JKO, Lee Harvey, and especially the Jack Ruby shot with the prostitutes. Very cool.

Wow! Ministry has been doing covers fairly consistently since right around Filth Pig, when they did a weird cover of Bob Dylan’s weird song “Lay Lady Lay”, and in 2008 they released an album full of previously-released covers (but only some of them – they left off , and the covers done by Revolting Cocks like “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”, Ministry’s cover of Magazine’s “The Light Pours Out Of Me”, or Buck Satan And The 666 Shooters’ cover of the Byrds’ “Drug Store Truck Driving Man”); near the end are three covers that appear elsewhere – “Lay Lady Lay”, “Roadhouse Blues” (one of their best songs in ages), 1000 Homo DJs’ cover of Black Sabbath’s “Supernaut”. The songs each have something subtly different about them, most significantly “Supernaut”, which has more subdued riffs (?!?!), and some new voice samples. Nice.

At the beginning of the album are seven new covers, and the first one is really great – a creative cover of the Stones’ “Under My Thumb”, which starts off with some serious new wave keyboards, and then some sort of scratchy Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell duet of the classic ’60s rocker, that rocks out in the chorus. Short and sweet. A cover of T Rex’s “Bang A Gong” hardly sounds much different from the original, but just interesting enough for people to say “huh?” “Radar Love”, the Golden Earring classic, has a shorter intro, and sounds a bit off-key with the whispered opening verses, but it rocks and is good fun. “Space Truckin’” is a cool and faithful cover of the classic Deep Purple song with plenty of cowbell and double drums. Wow! “Black Betty” is okay, but a bit over-produced, even more than the Ram Jam version of the famous Leadbelly tune. “Mississippi Queen” is a very cool throaty version that sounds like it could be by Goatsnake.
