EP109: Ministry “The Mind is A Terrible Thing to Taste”


Now fourteen albums into their thirty five year career it’s certainly debatable how well Ministry have aged with time.  In 1989 there was no debate, The Mind is A Terrible Thing to Taste was a sledgehammer to the brain of every fan of heavy music.  Punks, metalheads, goths and Industrial kids united around their buzzsaw guitars, rapid fire drum machines and war movie samples.  It’s safe to say many (if not most) of those early fans have moved on and their copies of the album has spent decades gathering dust (yours truly included).  For this episode, we’ve pulled it out of storage to give it a critical spin to see how it holds up against 2019 ears.
