365 Days of Album Recommendations – Oct 13

Ministry – The Land of Rape and Honey

Well, given that it’s Friday the 13th, seems only appropriate that I recommend one of the most frighteningly intense albums ever made.

Ministry – Rio Grande Blood

There are a great many powerful songs written about 9.11, and there are a great many terrible songs written about 9.11.

Horrible acts of this kind seem to inspire both the best and worst of artists; one the one hand, Picasso’s reaction to war gave us “Guernica.” On the other hand, Toby Keith’s reaction to 9.11 gave us “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American).”

I recommend Ministry’s “lieslieslies”

I’m on a mission to never forget
3, 000 people that I’ve never met
We want some answers and all that we get
Some kind of shit about a terrorist threat
Lies lies lies lies lies lies lies
Lies lies lies lies lies lies lies
Lies lies lies lies lies lies lies
Surprise surprise

Lies lies
