Ministry: The Land Of Rape And Honey (Sire LP/Cassette/CD)
Edwin Pouncey, New Musical Express, 11 February 1989
BRIAN JOURGENSEN and Paul Barker, the men from Ministry, work together in a world of seemingly self inflicted pain and torture. A ceaseless metal-machine beat pins back the ears and screams in disgust and outrage. Drum machines alternatively throb hot like Grand Prix racing engines or shift into a lower gear to create a more hypnotic state of mind. Guitars scream like dentist drills over a vocal which is spewing a bilious fountain of inner protest. Ministry are certainly not fun... Interesting? Well, maybe.
