3AM Eternal: Ministry, “Halloween (Remix)” (1985)


Though they have distanced themselves from their synth-pop past, Ministry‘s early, non-With Sympathy records were interesting, intriguing blends of synth and groove. One song, “Everyday Is Halloween,” is a classic of the Wax Trax! label. The original version is great, but I’ve always found more enjoyment in this peculiar little dance remix, which seems to be more along the lines of “let’s throw four minutes of extra jamming stuff at the beginning of the six minute song and call it different.” ¬†Still, Al Jourgensen‘s disdain for this era aside, this is one of their finest moments, even if everything afterwards sounded nothing like this.
