Ministry: Last Tangle in Paris DVD review

Fresh off the heels of last year’s final studio album, From Beer to Eternity, and a live CD/DVD Enjoy the Quiet: Live at Wacken 2012, we were pretty certain we’d seen the end of Ministry with frontman and mastermind Al Jourgensen unfortunately announcing the end of the band. Last year’s releases were seen by many as in honor and memory of longtime guitarist and close friend of Jourgensen- Mike Scaccia. Fast forward to 2014 and we’ve got yet another release from Ministry- a second CD/DVD live album, Last Tangle in Paris. Some people may not understand why we’re getting yet another live release from Ministry so soon after Enjoy the Quiet, but let’s sit back and appreciate it for what it is- Jourgensen’s way of giving fans a bigger glimpse into one of the band’s final tours- plus, let’s not forget MORE MINISTRY. As always, we’ve got another stellar, near-perfect show in Last Tangle in Paris. Anyone who’s read Jourgensen’s 2013 brutally graphic and honest memoir knows Ministry won’t put out anything short of perfection and this is no exception. Jourgensen’s vocals are flawless from start to finish and the band is in rare form, giving us a taste of pretty much every major Ministry track. Jourgensen has always been one of the most vocal and emotional performers and overall artists of our time and Last Tangle in Paris showcases this beautifully, blowing its live predecessor out of the water and is a must have for any member of the Ministry congregation.
