My HT copy sounds fine, great in fact. I don't have a SV to compare it to though, but having heard this album a gazillion times in various formats over the years, I can say this sounds perfectly fine and nothing like how you described it. Maybe you have ... See full review

Great pressing,well put together and very quiet. No digital download though, which is a bummer.

Does anyone know if this is the complete score?

The tracklist for this release is entirely incorrect. Many of the songs that are listed aren't on this release. Here's what's actually on here:

Side 1:
1. Frontier (Demo)
2. Ocean (Peel Session)
3. Labour of Love (Peel Session)
4. Threshold (Peel ... See full review

Fun fact-the opening rift of "Batteries Not Included" was later re-used in "Bloody Kisses (A Death in the Family)"

This is an excellent set, and it's great to finally have some of these tracks in high quality. This features tracks that previously didn't appear on the "Hit & Miss" and "Rated PG" compilations.

"Out Out" is still absent and not all collaborative tracks ... See full review

Another well done archival release by Cleo

It is missing a couple of songs. "The Urge To Runaway" which is from the same show as the last 4 tracks. It would have put the disc over 80 minutes, so it could have been left off due to time. Another one is a ... See full review

I think the album category is too broad. I think having sections for Studio, Live and Promotional albums will help every single artist page, but it isn't a change that the discogs staff is willing to make.

Maybe the final box will be the standalone singles (Shake the Disease/It's Called A Heart/Everything Counts 101/Strangelove 88/Only When I Lose Myself/Martyr)

Master recordings from Peter Christopherson's archive. He put together these releases (sans the artwork) prior to his death.

There is quite a bit of bootlegs indeed, however some must be considered as somewhat (well, mostly) official. The Threshold Archives is a project that Peter started, having provided all of the remastered audio and blue prints for each release. The ... See full review

An excellent live recording and highly recommended. The LP is also available as part of the Trax! Box set. This show is the third earliest known recording of a Ministry show. The first three tracks feature their demo arrangements, while Primental is an ... See full review

The video version would be my guess, since that was the only version in circulation at the time this was released.
posted a comment on Ministry - Trax! Rarities. about 1 year ago
Not sure, it really bothers me that they didn't use one of the alternate versions. They could have even used "I'll Do Anything For You". Overall it makes a good companion to the Twelve Inch Singles vinyl release (apart from the 1 redundant track).

I think that's just how the demo is. In many cases artists will put in intentional flaws in demo recordings to prevent it from being released pre-maturely.

Is the demo exclusive to this release? It isn't the same version that's found on the deluxe Rumours CD.

After some investigation, "Arena" (which claims to be recorded around the world) is actually just this show, sans Rio and Girls on Film. I thought about picking this up, but I might just stick with Arena, since it has the studio version of Wild Boys.

The drop out on "Same Old Scene" is on the source tape, it's like that on the digital version too. Sure, they could have edited it out, but they chose to present it in it's original state, which is fine by me. "Wait" definitely sounds distorted, they ... See full review

The first three boxes are complete, but starting with "Some Great Reward" is where the remixes start to get tricky. These box sets only duplicate the original commercial UK 12"s, so any remixes from other territories won't be included. Missing from this ... See full review

Excellent pressing. The original album master was used, so this DOES include the "O Fortuna" samples in "No W", as well as the alternate version called "Psalm 23". Note: Bloodlines was not on the original version of the album, and therefore isn't on this ... See full review

Sound quality is decent, although I'm not sure that they used the best source available. There's an audio glitch during "Closer". Does anyone else have that issue on their copy?

This one is sourced from the original master tape. The bootleg version is a post-FM recording, meaning someone taped it off of the radio.

It's not on the vinyl release at all, I think it was removed so they could get away with a single record.

A nice package, but there is some distortion during peak frequencies on sides C & D. Most tracks sound great, but worth pointing out.

Sounds great, most likely sourced from the master tape. The bootleg mp3s that I had previously were mono, muddy and played a little too fast, so I was impressed when I heard the vinyl.

Here's what Cleo said about "Where Are You At Now":

If you purchase direct from Cleopatra, it will come with the replacement disc. If you buy it from a third party, send Cleopatra an email with the receipt and a picture of your box with your name somewhere in the picture.

It's an original remix from 1983 that was shelved for whatever reason. I'm guessing they found a master acetate for it when digging up the original album masters. This version of Revenge is almost exactly how they played it on the 1983 tour.
