The newest Ministry album is full of metal guitar riffs. There is almost inaudible, so much accented Paul Barker's bass guitar which gave the dynamics to Ministry music. Not to mention there is no Barker in Ministry already.

A different band line-up gave the songs more rock style vibe and metal-like guitar riffs. I think this album was released too fast and the newest Ministry sound is based mostly on new musicians influence. There are Tommy Victor (from PRONG and ex-DANZIG guitarist), Paul Raven (bass, Killing Joke) and the drummer Mark Baker, plus a special guest named Sgt. Major and Jello Biafra (ex-Dead Kennedy's) whom Jourgensen played in Lard previously with.

If you got to know Ministry since Psalm 69 or Twitch you may not like Rio Grande Blood. It's music similar to Houses of the Molé and Animositisomina ventures.

As for the lyrics, there are lots of words concerning Bush and the USA politics again so it's a way boring. The worst song - there is any. The best song - neither. There is only Yellow Cake what sounds a bit typical for Ministry so it would be even difficult to not to recognize its author.
