Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys and Alien Jourgensen from Ministry, what a scray combination! And it works on most tracks. The cover or 'They're Coming To take Me Away(Ha ha)' is a gem. 'Can God Fill Teeth?' is suitably hilarious with Biafra's spoken word ranting about conspiracy theories involving bugging devices; 'Forkboy' is an adrenaline rush of pure punk thrash and 'Bozo Skeleton' is a stab at censorship and the Washington Wives . . . scary to think that Tipper Gore will be First Lady one day! Why should we be told what we can and can't listen to! Jello Biafra, in all his musical projects has never pandered to the masses, and he never will. Quite right too. The only duff track on the album is 'I Am Your Clock', which gets tediously drawn out, like some second-rate copy of early Swans sado-mnasochistic slow noise onslaught. But on the whole, an essential purchase for DKs and Ministry fans! Check out 'Drug Raid At 4AM' too, with its satirical, heavy industrial stab at overenthusiastic cops!

I love this album! It is a creation of the masterminds behind my two favorite bands: Dead Kennedys and Ministry. The lyrics and vocals on this album are all done by Jello Biafra, sung to tunes cooked up by Al Jourgensen and Paul Barker of Ministry. Track 1, Forkboy, was featured on the Natural Born Killers Soundtrack.
The music is a "punk meets industrial" kind of hybrid. The lyrics are like Dead Kennedys reincarnated, but not just the same old stuff. This is one of my favorite albums in my collection. END

this is DEFINITELY the single best lard release you can get your hands on. it's also some of jello's best work. you might recognise "forkboy" from the jail riot scene in natural born killers, and while that is an adrenaline junky's wet dream, there are also a ton of other equally great tracks on here! if you like jello, GET IT! if you like '88-'90 ministry stuff, GET IT!

This is a great album! With collaboration between Jello Biafra and members of Ministry, any fan of either will enjoy this album. The song lyrics are a true commentary on many social issues of the time (late 1980's/early 1990's), such as the invasion of Panama and Manuel Noriega and the US government's involvement and decisions. Tipper Gore and the Congressional investigations into song lyrics are not spared, especially with Biafra's personal involvement and testimony before Congress. The war on drugs is covered as well, in all its of unjust glory. Musically, the energy is incredible, with Ministry's own brand of energetic metal shining through. I highly recommend this album for both its social commentary songwriting style, and the driving, powerful music.

This album as a whole is much better than it's predecessor, The Power of Lard. Clever, funny lyrics, and the music is awesome as well....I think Jello's voice is perfect for this: fiery, fierce compositions, fueled by Jello's unique, over stated opinions, of politics and society. The music? Well...industrial, very fast, guitar oriented. I find Jello's wit and sarcasm in particularly good forum on "Reid.". The relentless, onslaught of high speed riffing and thunderous drumming by Al and friends is simply devastating. Yes!

I'm a big fan of both Dead Kennedys and Ministry, but I was disapointed by the first Lard release, The Power of Lard. It's just not good. However, on The Last Temptation of Reid I think they hit the mark. This is what I wanted to hear when I found out Jello and Al were making a record. It sounds like a blend of Dead Kennedys and Ministry, yet is different enough to be its own entity. I'd say it leans more toward the DK sound, because it doesn't contain the computer-generated sounds or samples of Ministry, and is more "punk rock" than "industrial" music - but it's more heavy metal than anything from DK. It totally sound like Al on guitar - forceful riffs with buzzsaw power behind them, and Jello's vocals are unmistakable - both in content and style. If you want to check out Lard because you like DK and/or Ministry, this is the CD to get. If you got the first Lard album and didn't like it, give this one a chance. Their cover of "They're Coming to take Me Away" is excellent. Other standout tracks include Forkboy, Pineapple Face, and Sylvestre Matuschka (although there isn't a "bad" song on the entire album in my opinion).

This is Jello`s second best work after the DKs split. Jello`s best work after the DK split is his album with D.O.A. This Lard album is almost as good as the Jello/DOA album. There`s also a rare old Dead Kennedys song on this Lard album, Sylvester Matushka. This song was written very early in the Dead Kennedys career but was never recorded for their first album Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables.

Jello Biafra and Al Jourgensen have both created so many worthwhile musical projects. Biafra fronted the Dead Kennedys, perhaps the most influential US punk band of all time, and has involved himself with a number of other musical and non-musical projects. Jourgensen is the twisted genius behind Ministry, Revolting Cocks, 1000 Homo DJs and who knows what else. With such a record behind them, it made perfect sense for the two to combine, as they do flawlessly here.
This album just reels off one great song after another. Forkboy, Pineapple Face, Bozo Skeleton, Mate, Spawn & Die all motor along in a straightforward thrash fashion. They're Coming To Take Me Away bounces along cheerfully, as an ode to the brighter side of mental illness, only to be ground into the dirt by the relentless plodding of I Am Your Clock.
As ever with Jello Biafra, there is a dark lyrical bent throughout the album. Drug Raid at 4am covers the lack of respect shown for innocent people in the war on drugs. My favourite song, Can God Fill Teeth? takes a humorous swipe at conspiracy theorists and Big Brother. The music backs off enough to let Jello flow on one of his legendary rants, about everything and nothing, before kicking into a manic electric drill frenzy. I Am Your Clock is another Big Brother song, this time analysing modern society and it's controls on the common man.
Only Jello Biafra could have written a song like Sylvestre Matuschka, a true story of a psychopath who gained sexual gratification from blowing up trains.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this album is that it is over a decade old, but still sounds fresh.
