Ministry – Psalm 69 The Way to Succeed and The Way to Suck Eggs

Just like the Butthole Surfers post, this was also the first Ministry release here in the Philippines. I’ve been waiting this record to be released here because of the hype surrounding the band (and Industrial music at that time). It’s safe to say that this record did not disappoint, it’s everything I expected it to be.

Two or three years prior, I saw their first record in the imports bin and was all set to buy it. Then my friend who was with me at that time intervened saying “I heard their first album sucks big time, it’s a disco record!” At first I thought he was just kidding, but he was really insistent. Good thing, Go Girl Crazy CD was also available, so I bought the Dictators instead.

I still haven’t heard of the Ministry’s first record so I can’t say if it’s disco or if it sucks big time just as my friend described it.

Anyway, this one definitely rocks and a must have.

it's not really disco, it's more of a synth-pop Depeche Mode style record. Could be worse if you ask me, but it'll never compare to this one, The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste, or Land of Rape and Honey. Three untouchable industrial/rock albums.
