Twitch is the - in my opinion sorely underrated - bridge between early Ministry and their later industrial metal form that debuted on The Land of Rape and Honey. When I say "early Ministry" here I don't mean the gothy synthpop stylings of their debut album, With Sympathy - nothing else in their discography really sounds like that - but instead the Ministry of their early singles, stuff like Everyday Is Halloween or All Day (the latter of which has a remix represented here). The album is very much on the EBM side of electronic industrial, but it's also on the harder-edged side of that - it'd just take someone picking up a guitar and matching the synth riffs on it to tip this over the edge into industrial metal.

I'm in the minority of loving the heck out of the first two Ministry albums as well but then again i love industrial and synthpop
