ANIMOSITISOMINA

I highly recommend this CD to all fans of synthpop…woops!

Wrong CD. Sorry about that.

So Ministry is back. There is so much to talk about and so little time. First off, the title is apt: the word "animosity" colliding into itself pretty much sums up 2003 in general. Has the sound that was beaten to death in the Nineties (industrial metal), by numerous lightweight corporate copycats, reared its ugly head once again? Not really. Yes, there are actual drums, guitars, and bass that dominate the CD, as well as electronic paraphernalia peppered about. But to insist that this album is mere Nineties fodder is missing the point entirely, and just as inaccurate as bandying about the term industrial as an adjective to describe this CD. As the metal scene has found comfort in the blasphemous gurgles emanating from underneath the Scandinavian tundra, aggressive electronic music has found a Promethean urge to venture into the Interzone of power noise, or whatever the buzz phrase is this week. This CD is neither electronic noise nor industrial metal. It is noisy, though.

Al is, obviously, still pissed off. And there are so many valid reasons to be pissed off. The state of the "industry" is enough to infuriate, and then throw in the giant red magic marker of Big Brother, the economy, and the threat of annihilation, and you have a short list of contributing reasons why it was necessary to make a CD like 'Animositisomina.'

Musically speaking, the cover of Magazine's "The Light Pours Out Of Me" was excellent. And so was the "Dead Souls" vocal on "Shove." To me though, the most accessible song was the danceable ditty "Impossible," which made me want to reenact the Nick Cage - dancing on the side of the road - scene in the movie 'Wild At Heart.' There is an extraordinary amount of energy on this CD, but it is the kind of energy one musters while stuck in traffic. It was as if Al wanted to say something so profound, but he just could not find the right words. But that is ok. Big Brother would have gotten out the giant red magic marker anyway. At least he tried.

This rivals Psalm 69 for sheer brilliance. If you are a Ministry fan, you will not be disappointed. Newbies: check it out, forcefull aggression and total power. Class.
