A lot of really good ideas and unique aspects to this album that were groundbreaking at the time. Probably most later Industrial Metal bands used this thing as a blueprint. The speedy, riff-focused parts of this are great, like Tv 2 and Hero, which rip along at chainsaw shredding speed. Al usually sounds good, which a very gruff yet nasally yell that is no doubt processed with some distortion.

What really ruins this album for me is the insane repetitiveness, especially in the annoying samples. Most of the songs here have parts where some vocal sample is repeated about 16 times, and it’s abundant with random shout or spoken samples that are thrown in at the rate of a snare drum. On the same note, even when the guitar riffs and rhythm section are good, it quickly goes stale after the same measure has been repeated about 32 times. There’s very little variety to each track, making each one more or less based around one repetitive section.

The title track is an example that almost uses samples well, specifically the choir vocals that add an epic touch to it, but then the rest of the track falls into the same habit of throwing in voices and what not so much that it just becomes annoying. Despite the abundance of interesting and unique ideas here, it’s something I have no desire to revisit because of how annoying it can be.

본작부터 Thrash Metal을 대폭 받아들이며 직선적이고 맹렬히 퍼붓는 연주는 전작보다 더욱 진화되었다. 전작이 Industrial Metal에 Thrash Metal의 Riff를 도입시킨것에 지나지 않았지만 Industrial Metal이라는 명칭에 어울리는 균등한 배율이었다면 본작은 그냥 Thrash Metal에 Industrial을 도입한 스타일이다.

거의 Thrash Metal이라 불러도 무방할 정도로 Thrash Riff와 구성력이 흡사하지만 Ministry만의 Industrial의 느낌을 살리기 위해 Programming을 만져 딱딱하고 기계적인 느낌과 Vocal이자 리더인 Al Jourgensen의 괴기한 톤의 목소리를 분위기에 잘 섞이게 만들어졌다. 본작에서의 Riff들은 가히 살인적으로 꽂아대며 귀를 반복적으로 후벼파서 지루하다고 느껴질지 모르겠지만 구성에 따른 변화를 통해 Sampling을 적절히 잘 씌워서 지루함이 거의 느껴지지 않거니와 집중력도 떨어지지 않는다.

실험적인 시도도 띄이지만 위화감이 전혀 없고 곡들 하나한 상당히 귀에 쏙쏙 박히며 Industrial적인 분위기를 잘 이끌어내면서 Ministry 앨범 중 가장 훌륭한 앨범으로 꼽히기도 한다.

Killing Track : Just One Fix, Psalm 69

Best Track : N.W.O., Hero, Jesus Built My Hotrod

Tons of energy on this album, and I love the Ministry style, samples and all. I know some don't but it really brings me to an industrial happy place.

Psalm 69 is an industrial metal album with a lot of thrash elements. It sounds like a thrashy Trent Reznor. Overall the album had satisfactory production, great riffs and heavy industrial sounds which made the songs sound much better.

celkom zásadné industrial/metalové album, ukázalo cestu mnohým industriálnym kapelám, obsahuje kvalitné, ale aj trošku slabšie piesne
