The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste

The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste by Ministry
Released: Nov 1989
Label: Sire/Warner Bros.
Ministry's debut album was pretty tame, compared to what came later -- vaguely sneering new wave mixed with punk-funk á la Duran Duran. The Land Of Rape and Honey was more abrasive, as you'd guess, but The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste was something else entirely, from its blast beats and metal guitars to acid-house sample play and echoes of the doom-core rave then happening over in Belgium. It's all gloriously overblown, but it also feels truly menacing, right down to the power drill of "Thieves."
