Now I don't consider my self an obsessive Sonic Youth fan like many of their fans do but I love them in a very big way.

The majority of Sonic Youth fans would have you know that "Daydream Nation" is the greatest album of all time and certainly Sonic Youth's greatest masterpiece.

Me? This. Listening to this for the first time is one of the greatest musical experiences I have ever had. Subsequent listens have only made me love it more.

Point of the thread too, a whole album.

circle of dust, brainchild. some songs seem to differ from album to this youtube vid.

So far it ticks all the boxes....croaky voice, hard-driving erratic rhythm, gutsy guitar, layers of other instrumentation and sampling. Really like the second song. About half way thru the album. Still, why digress from the original and best Al Jourgensen?

Great album! Filthpig is my favourite, love the slower doom sound Al brought to it. And the meat helmet.
TBH, I love all Ministry/RevCo albums. Al is my all-time favorite musician. I have a mammoth music collection (digital, about 2 or more gig). Very eclectic. From classical to hip-hop to punk to everything in between. I like so much. Yet, I DO have my fistful of all-time favorites...about say 12 or so artists/bands that get the majority of my playing time over the years. But....if I HAD TO choose only one artist, stranded on a desert island, it would have to be all of Al's work over all his bands/projects. It's just exactly "me", really speaks to what is me and who I am.

Nice. Yeah I'm a bit all over the shop with taste/genres as well, just finished his book recently too which was a fun read. First time I heard Ministry was listening to Filthpig when it was first released, hooked ever since! My five desert island albums - today anyway - would be:
Fever Ray - s/t
Tripping Daisy - Jesus hits...
Ministry - Filthpig
Primus - Seas of Cheese
Cure - Disintegration

Wow, Cure/Disintegration -- my favorite of theirs and one of my all-time favorite albums. And Primus/SeasOfCheese....another awesome album. Both those albums have gotten extended play in my eardrums. Have never heard of Fever Ray, so will check them out.

Our tastes are not far off the same page. And if you're anything like GG.exe then you're :thumbsu:

With the passing of Prodigy this past week might as well add Mobb Deeps best album IMO. Although The Infamous being a great album in its own right including the best Mobb track Shook One's Pt 2. Hell On Earth took it to another level with banger after banger front to back.

hmm interesting selection man, I still think Mind is the seminal Ministry album. Sheer quality aside there was an interesting chronology to it, encapsulating the growth of a band more than others from the era while simultaneously laying a platform of sound. I still laugh at the early days of Al singing love ballads, having gone through their 80s catalogue recently, it's interesting how Ministry began it sounding like Depeche Mode then finished sounding like Ministry. As for recommendations, um I don't know, maybe Daimonion by Project Pitchfork or the soundtrack to Set It Off or October Rust by Type O -.

Well, I love all Ministry and Revco albums equally. I listen to them all constantly. Including the remix albums. Each one has its merits. Bottom-line with Al Jourgensen as a musician, he makes so many songs and albums with differences in them. Like different sounding riffs and instrumentations in every song so that no two songs/albums ever really sound the same. A great quality to have in a musician. I even love the Work For Love album you describe (the 80s synth pop songs in fake english accent).
