Product Description

Deep in the heart of Hell Paso Texas, Ministry's Al Jourgensen's studio has been at warp speed for the past year, furiously hammering out the third and final edition of the trilogy, The Last Sucker follows 2004's Houses Of The Mole and 2006's Rio Grande Blood. After twelve albums and 27 years (including four Grammy nominations), Uncle Al's decided the Ministry garage is ready to close its doors, leaving The Last Sucker as the final Ministry studio offering. Welcome to the renegade road warrior Al Jourgensen's latest behemoth an off-the-map, 12 hundred horsepower vehicle. Fuel-injected with equal parts fury, disgust, distrust and dismay, spitting and sizzling with grease and venom, each joint heaves under the pressure of emotionally relentless delivery. From the first double-digit salvo of 'Let's Go,' with its deliciously bizarre trademark Ministry wasteland brutality, Jourgensen outlays a glorious smorgasbord of Ministry mayhem. Strap on 'Death & Destruction' for joyriding thrills, 'Watch Yourself' for its distinctive Ministry 'sample and slam you' warning, 'The Dick Song,' for Ministry's tribute to the current US Veep, and a propane-powered cover of The Doors 'Roadhouse Blues.'

Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen has announced that The Last Sucker is the band's last stab. And that's as it should be, for the 11-track recording finds the outfit in the finest form it's been for more than a decade, harkening back to classic Ministry output such as A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste and Psalm 69. Throughout, Jourgensen smashes and thrashes eardrums and illusions with "Watch Yourself," "The Dick Song," and the title cut with all the angst of a man who's spent more than two decades battling normalcy, pop radio, and the White House. Never one to stray from brutality, he offers it all up here via "No Glory," "End Of Days" (both Part I and Part II), and even a cheeky (but not too cheeky) take on the Doors' classic "Roadhouse Blues." A fine and fitting epitaph for one of America's greatest and most uncompromising bands. --Jedd Beaudoin

If this is truly their last studio album, Ministry has come full circle. In a career that has spanned almost thirty years, Al Jourgensen leaves a robust legacy having perfected industrial-metal, overcome a toxic drug addiction and, most importantly, remained relevant.

This is the definition of HARD CORE. Play any of these tracks at full blast from your car stereo (with the windows down) and you will inspire looks from passers-by confirming:

"...the end is near."

Sonically, Ministry has already gone where few bands dare to venture and this album breaks no new ground. Yet, their musical attack is a nothing short of a jihad against the current global and domestic political state. Very few modern musicians have chosen to go "this far" with the exception of hip-hop's Immortal Technique.

"Death & Destruction", "Let's Go", and "The Last Sucker" are all standouts; as is a coma inducing cover of "Roadhouse Blues". The albums most interesting tracks are "The End of Days Part 1 & 2".

Keeping with his penchant for including samples of speeches, Jourgensen ends this album and Ministry's studio career with excerpts of former Supreme Allied Commander of Europe and President of the United States, General Dwight D. Eisenhower. In his last presidential speech, he prophetically warns Americans about the dangers of an unchallenged, military industrial-complex. When he says "..and now I am to become a private citizen. I am proud to do so. I look forward to it." one can help but conjure up images of "Uncle Al" bidding us an equal farewell.

Can it be true? Is this really the last we'll ever hear from Al Jourgensen and Ministry? Let's hope not, but if indeed it is, "The Last Sucker" is a heck of a way to go out. Completing the politically charged assault trilogy that started with "Houses of the Mole" and continued with last year's "Rio Grande Blood", "The Last Sucker" is a nitro fueled blast of raw industrial mayhem, which is nothing less than we should come to expect from good 'ol Uncle Al. "Watch Yourself", "No Glory", "Die in a Crash", the title track, and the creepily closing "End of Days" are some of the best material that Ministry has produced in the past three years, and the blazing cover of the Doors' "Roadhouse Blues" is simply a treat to the ears. "The Last Sucker" closes with Al once again making excellent use of an old speech, which in itself is a fond farewell to the fans that have stuck by Ministry through thick and thin over what is close to thirty years that the band has been around. If indeed this is the end of Ministry, it's been a great ride to say the least, and they will forever be known as one of the most original and influential outfits to ever hit the scene.

The Good
"Let's Go" leads the charge with galloping riffage and equally as powerful vocals. Heavy guitars and a furious Al Jourgensen stomp a mud hole of anger into "Watch Yourself." Jourgensen unleashed more fury and hatred on the politically charged track "The Dick Song." Meaty riffs and chugga-chugga riffs back up snarling vocals on "The Last Sucker." "No Glory" fires off at you and furious heavy metal break-neck speed. A cover of The Doors "Roadhouse Blues" seems a little out of place with the rest of the music, but does fit it lyrically with the albums overall theme. It's certainly more interesting than the original. Ministry closes out with the multi-tempoed epic "End of Days."

The Bad
This has been labeled the last Ministry album.

The Verdict
There's no denying that Ministry is making a strong statement against our current government and political actions as a nation under George Bush. With The Last Sucker Jourgensen makes his opinions clear with anger, fury, and thunderous guitars. I have listened to Ministry in the past, and I wasn't really impressed. However, The Last Sucker opened my eyes and touched my metal soul. Powerful, strong, and to the point.

I've been a Ministry fan since almost the begining-1989's "The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste", which I found by accident while joining a CD/Book Club. I was so impressed by the intense double-base-times-ten beats with perfect decidedly placed appropriate samples, that I became an instant fan. After that, I kept my ears open for more Ministresque industrial-thrash sounds. I also developed friends along the way who introduced me to others including: KMFDM, Front 242 and Skinny Puppy. In my opinion, Al Jourgensen and Co. are the Masters of Sampling and pioneers of industrial metal. Without Ministry, there would be no Rob or White Zombie, Nine Inch Nails or Static-X. I was ridiculed in the past for being a Ministry fan because they were always ahead of their time and going against the grain of modern metal--no one understood. My personal favorite album like many other Ministry fans is 1992's Psalm 69--I remember copies of the "Jesus Built My Hotrod" single floating around the undergrond industrial/thrash/metal scene of my high school before "Psalm 69" was ever released. My all-time personal favorite single is: "Dead Guy" from Filth Pig, followed by "Gangreen" from Rio Grande Blood and "The Dick Song" off of the album in question (The Last Sucker).
If this is indeed Ministry's final studio offering, I'm extremely proud of what they have produced. What I've enjoyed from Ministry over the years is the samples and how they are placed. The last couple of albums I've been slightly disappointed with, even though the songs were good.
As for "The Last Sucker", I'm blown away by not only the samples but, how they are perfectly placed within the songs.
