The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste
Ministry's dark and intense fusion of industrial and metal musics reached a peak on THE MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO TASTE. The title, cover art and even the samples (from such films as Full Metal Jacket, Prince of Darkness and Hellraiser II) in these nine tracks show a band out for blood, but the 1989 Sire collection is as rewarding as it is challenging. Frontman Al Jourgensen and partner-in-crime Paul Barker have come up with buzzing guitar riffs, piledriver rhythms and menacing vocals to frame sinister songs of political, cultural, environmental and personal collapse. As today is Al Jourgensen's birthday, we'll give you a piece of the Ministry man's mind with the inventive and influential THE MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO TASTE.
