EXCELLENT PRODUCED WITH EARLY INDUSTRIAL ELECTRO STYLED MUSIC.
"PRIMENTAL' IS INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF 'I WANTED TO TELL HER ' FROM THEIR DEBUT ALBUM 'WITH SYMPATHY"
STILL SOUNDS AS EDGEY AS 'BACK IN THE DAY" OF EARLY INDUSTRIAL SYMPATHY
THE VERSION OF 'IM FALLING" IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM EARLIER PREVIOUS VERSION

I attended most of the ministry shows around chicago, including their first show.
Al was totally into the synth pop scene,and all the promotional hype surrounding them.At the time they were totally fun live, nothing to be ashamed of.
Plus Dan and Jim did not force him to come up with the sound, that's is ridiculous and insulting to them...

The songs on this vinyl originally came out before the "With Sympathy" LP whose new-wave sound Al claims he was forced into by his record label. "I'm Falling" is edgey, but "Cold Life" wouldn't be out of place on "With Sympathy" and "Primental" is an instrumental version of "I Wanted To Tell Her" from his first LP. Plus these songs were released on Wax Trax! where I understand the artists apparently had complete control over what was released. All of which in my opinion deflates Al's claim that "With Sympathy"'s floppy new-waveyness was not his idea. I think he's just embarrassed by his new wave beginnings given what Ministry has become and is trying to excuse the band's perhaps less than impressive first album.
