First MOV pressing where the artwork doesn't look like an enlarged 72dpi Google image. Pot Luck #000011 :) :)

Even though the songs are really crammed on both sides, the dynamic range is MUCH better than CD/digital. Very good pressing and excellent art reproduction, right down to using the actual "Ministry Filth Pig" sticker on the cover (not printed on thankfully).

Is this really an official version? I remember seeing plenty of these "deluxe" box sets with dodgy t-shirts and whatnot back in the 90s, looks exactly like one of them.

Another fantastic reissue from Music On Vinyl. Sounds tight and punchy and the record itself is very quiet with no surface noise at all.

Filth Pig, it's all in the name. By far Ministrys least electronically infused record. This album features sludgy guitars, BIG drumming from Reiflin, mandolin and harmonica soloes, a Bob Dylan cover, a ballad, and lots of doomy guitar riffs. Fans of Burning Witch and Melvins will feel right at home with Filth Pig, but for your typical Ministry fans this record was rather alienating. It doesn't have all the drum machine thrash beats and sampler-chopped guitar riffs that industrial fans were used too. Instead we see Ministry doing their damnedest to be a live metal/rock band. Unfortunately this record was the height of tension for alot of the band members, but the outcome is purely satisfying to any fan of vitriolic heavy music. Filth Pig will forever be my favorite Ministry album. Give it a chance, if you don't like it right away try again, it just might grow on you. Dark Side and Animositomina make great followups as well, a trilogy of Ministrys finest work.

Sounds ok considering they jammed 25 minutes of music onto side one and almost 30 minutes on side two. You really have to crank the volume for it to sound decent. Another label that plugs 180 gram as "audiophile" even though thick vinyl does nothing for sound quality and then does amateur mistakes like jamming too much music on each side.

Quite amazing how Ministry update and change their sound with every album, here they provide hard hitting industrial sludge metal. The title track is like taking Depeche Mode's I "Feel You" and soaking it in a swamp to spawn that proper filthy Southern monster sound. But they never become predictable, "Lay Lady Lay" is just a mind-boggling cover version, almost pop-like, a fitting light hearted dessert to finish off all that bottom heavy sludge with.

Nice pressing from MOV, as always :) Definitely better than CD.

There is a perception that Filth Pig was different from what Ministry did. But actually it does not sound radically different from what went before, simply a whole lot less varied. Much of the sound of Filth Pig carries on from Scarecrow from the previous album. There is a tendency for those who dislike this album to focus on the 'sludge' of say The Fall (or basically tracks 5-9), rather than focus on Reload or Brick Windows; but Al Jourgensen had done sludge before - Lard's Time to Melt, a real endurance test if you don't like Filth Pig!

Filth Pig confirmed Ministry's sound as guitar driven, rather than electronic as it had been in the 80s, and that seems to be only difference.
