Al Jourgensen followed his post-With Sympathy departure from Arista with some Wax Trax! singles, then returned to major label life via Ministry’s second album Twitch, recorded in London with the audible production help of Adrian Sherwood and core On-U Sound players. Often seen as transitional, it’s more like a path not taken, with Jourgensen avoiding the feedback and shouts of soon to come albums in favor of ominous electronic clatter and deep industrial funk grooves, most successfully on “Just Like You” and the standout single “Over The Shoulder.”
