Ministry, ‘The Last Sucker’ (13th Planet/ Megaforce)
After 12 albums, Al Jourgensen is yanking the plug on the act that led the way for every Reznor, Manson, and Zombie to follow. His farewell is also the last album in a trilogy vilifying President Bush, and while there’s nothing here as dense and biting as the Ministry slams of Bush Sr. in the ’90s, Jourgensen can still pile on the jackhammer beats and clever samples. “Death and Destruction” crowbars Dubya clips between chugging riffs; the anti-Big Brother blast “Watch Yourself” is paranoid metal madness; and the Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues” gets a power-thrash makeover.
