a good title is a terrible thing to waste
Comments (2018):
    This message's subject is a play on the album title The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Waste, which is in turn a play on the classic UNCF slogan, "a mind is a terrible thing to waste".
    And contrary to the apparent consensus of the music-themed mailing list where I originally wrote this, and the tone of my mini-review, the album seems to have developed quite a bit of critical acclaim in the 28 years since I wrote this.

Against the advice of most of the list, I got the new Ministry. It was cheap at a used shop. I should have listened to the list. I wasn't much impressed. I like the title, but from there it's downhill. It's not what I'd call terrible, but I wouldn't have bought it if I'd listened first. Well, not much more to say about this one except get it if you're a completist and have everything else by them. Otherwise save your money for better albums by bands that need the money more. Any suggestions about more worthwhile efforts by them? I can sense signs that they're capable of better.
