Finally a re-release for Ministry
's long unavailable debut album, incl. 3 bonus-tracks. Released in 1983 on Arista Records with members at the time being Alain Jourgensen and Stephen George, singer Jourgensen was supposedly pressured into making the album in the 'synthpop' style by Arista management, which is in contrast to the harder sound he developed as his career continued. However, there are several reports of Jourgensen saying in the eighties how he discovered 'hardcore', which changed his musical direction, and became ashamed of putting out a 'synthpop' album.
Funny enough, Jourgensen assumes a false English accent for all songs... The album was released by BMG in Europe under the title 'Work for Love' and features the 3 first Ministry
singles: 'Revenge', 'Work for Love' and 'I wanted to tell her'. The CD includes 2 alternative versions of single-tracks + 1 bonus song.
