Gladys from Chicago, IlActually, Al J was reportedly VERY unhappy with the way that first release turned out; he didn't feel it portrayed Ministry as they really were. In fact, I read somewhere that he refers to this album as "an abortion."

Nathan Mueller from Eagan, MnGet to the root of this band and get a taste of what 'alternative' music was when that phrase was coined. Listen to Ministry's "With Sympathy". the whole "goth" thing started many moons ago, and "everyday is like halloween" will give you that.
