Sometimes I like to picture Ministry fans at the time picking "Land of Rape and Honey" up after being so fond of their previous new-wave/dance-goth outputs and having their minds crushed by the agonized scream that kicks off Stigmata. It's not logical to assume otherwise seeing as how this is Ministry's foray into their now well known "Industrial" sound. Shouting through distortion, sampled voices, looped pulsing rhythms, this is where all the traits usually linked to industrial music stemmed from. Putting all this together, and pushed by the fact that it's a special rarity to hear something made before this album appear on the band's live set. It's easy to see why this is considered Ministry's first "true" album.
