In the world of Ministry, or at least in the demented, chemically imbalanced world of Al Jourgensen, everything is an addiction. It has therefore been fairly inevitable that the band is back with a new record, contrary to statements made just a few years ago. Al needs just one more fix, and it is called Relapse - a title that proves to be immensely accurate.

I guess the title makes sense.

This is quite surprising, especially after Al originally dissolved the band. Nevertheless, it will be great to hear Ministry again.

However, the notion of releasing a new album following three anti-Bush records begs an obvious question: will Al continue roasting warmongering, corporatist politicians as he did in the latter years of his band's history? In light of an administration that wasted American dollars on bailing out large corporations and the automobile industry, enacted an ineffective and downright disappointing Medicare makeover, and prolonged unrest in Afghanistan, Barack Obama would be an obvious target, but since he has not been the kind of monster that Bush (aka "Great Satan") was, he would not be much fun. Warmongering provides for good material, and since Barry has not actually started any wars, he does not inspire the kind of disgust that Bush did.

Political commentary aside, I am downright ecstatic about Ministry's return.

Maybe Obama didn't start the current wars but he kept them, besides the hypocrisy of being the last Nobel peace prize winner, remenber he promised the US troops would be out of Irak by early 2011, Libya's intervention by NATO and the whole world economic crisis...there's a lot of material that can be used by the uncle Al.

Actually his reasoning for disbanding and now wanting to return is a bit more noble (if that's even the right word for it, lol) than money problems...

If anything, that was a premature promise. Nobody in their right mind can have expected the US to just pull out there. They invaded two countries, removed their leaders, reinstated new civilian governments and are now needed to help people transition to a new society. I don't want to go into the right or wrong question but now that they brought chaos over the people of two countries, they cannot just pull back their troops and leave the people alone. The Taliban are already plotting their comeback in Afghanistan. And the situation in Irak is all but stable. Obama is aware of the USA's responsibility to end what they started. I remember reading in an interview with Al that he thinks he makes better music with a republican president. I'm more than curious about the theme of the new album but I don't think it'll have that much to do with the continuation of the two wars or the intervention in Lybia. Or let's say I hope he didn't just jump on the easy train here.

Well having heard 99% and double tap i've pre-ordered Uncle Al's new album.

Wither he needs the money or not, I have to admit I haven't been disappointed with any Ministry albums ever. I got into'em following the Dark Side of the Spoon via the Matrix soundtrack about 12 years ago.

Unfortunately those 2 songs are probably the best of the album. The rest is rather...uninspired.

Maybe it's my fault. I had really high hopes after The Last Sucker. Relapse does not compare well to The Last Sucker...huge let-down
