1. Rio Grande Blood (Rio Grande Dubya Mix),2. Seńor Peligro (La Zona Peligrosa Mix),3. Gangreen (Kiss Me Goodnight Mix),4. Fear Is Big Business (Weapons Of Mass Deception Mix),5. Lieslieslies (Cognitive Dissonance Mix),6. The Great Satan (What Would Satan Do Mix),7. Yellow Cake (Hexafluoride Mix),8. Palestina (72nd Virgin Mix),9. Ass Clown (Osama Mcdonald Mix),10.

It was said that Ministry was about to release the last album after Rio Grande Dub. I guess the idea behind RGD was to put out a CD with a content they had never attached before in such a wide range – eleven remixes. The idea of remixes is boring to me on general tho there are sometimes very talented musicians who really know what to do to make an original song sound even more interesting.

In case of these remixes, they were made by Clayton Worbeck (Revolting Cocks, Stayte) or John Bechdel (Fear Factory, Prong, Ministry, False Icons) but actually the result gives me an idea of „a CD for Ministry’s albums collectors”. However it’s not that bad, the remixes are done professionally, worked out tasteful and there are a few really cool which made my my blood pressure rise up like both versions of Lies Lies Lies, and Khyber Pass (TX Bush Ranch Mix), to me the best track on the album, with Arabic songs sampled in and this helicopter-like background sound which give me quite clear associations to the USA/Iraq war. But besides that, this album doesn’t change Ministry image in any - either good or bad way but it also didn't impress me that much.
