Saw my reflection in a spoon. I had it with my not approved excuse I've got a supermanic soul. I've pulled the trigger in the record room I've put a stop to his loonytoons I've put him down in the record room. These are for you Dead - break this These are for you Dead - break this Dead! These are for you Dead - break this These are for you Dead - break this. Don't wanna hear your voice Don't really know if I have a choice Don't wanna be the one that makes you forget. You're choking on the brain You're choking again. Step it up baby! We gotta sell instutions of recovery, We gotta kill distrubutions of the pills I take! ?? Grr! Step! Step it up baby!
Bad Blood" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2000. Dark Side of the Spoon features less aggressive songs than Ministry's previous albums, and frontman Al Jourgensen had intended it to be the case.
Probably the least convincing Ministry album, although some interesting ideas and experiments were tried here, "Dark Side Of The Spoon" came at the end of a difficult period for Al Jourgensen's band. The slow, doomish atmospheres presented on "Filth Pig" had been criticized by journalists and audience, who were expecting something even faster and more violent than "Psalm 69", so, when you start listening to "Supermanic Soul", it seems that the inevitable choice was to start pump again on heavy guitars and breath-taking rhythms. Vex & Siolence" is the brainchild of Paul Barker, and it sounds much like a Lead Into Gold song, equally slow and introspective. Anyway, all this is definitely not enough to save a CD which sounds weak and not at all convincing. The problem is that we're talking about Ministry, a band that marked history, inventing so much.

Listen free to Ministry – Dark Side of the Spoon (Supermanic Soul, Whip and Chain and more). Bad Blood was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2000. There are two theories behind the title (which occurs in the lyrics of the opening track), the first being a simple play on words, referencing Pink Floyd's record The Dark Side of the Moon. The second is a reference to the blackened or dark side of a spoon when heated.
