5.0 out of 5 stars You can still find this. December 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Just a short review to let people know where to find this album. This wonderful collaboration between Ian McKaye and the Ministry boys has been reprinted on the new Ministry reissue called "Side Trax". Just search Amazon for "Side Trax" and you'll find this album. I hope this helps!

5.0 out of 5 stars Your cd player will thank you. March 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is the album I pull out and lend to friends when it seems like they need some unexpected joy in their lives. The music here is EXACTLY what you'd expect from an Ian McKaye and Al Jourgeson duo. You can immediately pick out their respective offerings. Very distinct, very individual. And yet it's something entirely new. Think peanut butter and jelly. Both their own thing by their own rights, but together, they form perfection.

And, I almost never use sexual terms when describing music, but this is one of the few times that I do. "I Will Refuse" is simply ORGASMIC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Auditory Mind Cleave February 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Amongst all of the Ministry side products, Pailhead stands head and shoulders above the rest.Ian sounds great with the rest of the M boys. It's cool that Al steps back and lets someone else front for a while. If you like Fugazi, Minor Threat, or Ministry. You'll love this! Its two great tastes that go great together! Also check out LARD. (Jello Biafra w/t Ministry)

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply and beautifully aggro! August 30, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe this recording is 10 years old! I just popped it into my CD player again tonight for the first time in years and it still gives me a rush! Literally. It made my hairs stand on end just like the first time I listened to it. This came out when I was an angry young college student...now I'm in my 30s and have even more to be really angry about and dammit if this doesn't make me feel validated. Girls and boys of the Limp Bizkit generation, turn that crap off and listen to Sirs Mackaye, Jourgensen and Barker and they'll show you how to put that aggression to good use. Crank it up, clear the floor and find someone to slamdance with - er, that would be 'moshing' these days right? Or just slap the headphones on and enjoy the assault, but I dare you to try to sit still. This is one of my "desert-island" CDs. Don't know why I ever put it away but it's out to stay now. And to reiterate others, I would almost take away half a star for it's brevity and for the boys' lack of follow-up, but I just don't have the heart. I'm just thankful a disc like this was ever made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punkdustrial. May 22, 2011
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those collaborations that pretty much sounds like just what it is. Ian McKaye of Fugazi fronting Ministry. As a longtime fan of both bands just the thought is exciting. The songs are too. Basically just a 6 track Ep, it's enough...but not too much. Trait is a real sound of the times. I'm not sure I can sell this any better than telling you who's involved.

This entire release and more is also found on the Ministry collection "Side Trax". Can't confirm that it's remastered, but it might be more for your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not JUST another Partnership!!! May 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Trait

THIS PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE KING OF INDUSTRIAL AND THE VOICE OF PUNK/HARDCORE IS NOT JUST A PERFECT COMBINATION IT'S GENIUS!!! THE CRUSHING SOUNDS OF DISTORTION MIXED WITH VOCALS UNDENIABLY PERFECTED DURING NUMEROUS UNDERGROUND PERFORMANCES HAVE MADE A PIECE OF HISTORY HERE. ALTHOUGH LONG OUT OF PRINT (BUT NOT CIRCULATION) FIND THIS, CHERISH THIS, AND UNDERSTAND THAT COLLABORATIONS LIKE THIS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Anthem! March 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thank you, Amazon, for helping me find this out-of-print album after all these years. What an intense album! Despite some production values and EQ of the late 80's sounding a bit dated, the music rings true and the lyric just cuts to the quick. Fans of Ministry, Fugazi, NIN, and industrial music in general should pick it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars this had to grow on me March 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i bought this a while ago and really wasn't into it, but i've been getting more and more into lately. part of the reason why i gave it a second chance is because ian is absolutely my favorite vocalist ever. he's not the best vocalist ever, but he's f***ing awesome.

anyway, into the review part of this. this is super monotonous, but in a really good foot tapping sort of way. i was never very into ministry and i think that this sounds nothing at all like anything al has ever done. this is definately a complete about face for ian.

"man should surrender" absolutely had to have been the groundwork for QOTSA's "feel good hit of the summer" and there is nothing wrong with that as both songs are pretty damn good.

for anyone that is a fan of embrace, fugazi, ministry, queens of the stone age, etc.

it's definately not the best thing in the world, but if you let it grow on you you'll find yourself bringing it with you in the car all the time.
