42. Helmet Meantime (1992)

I remember a journalist in 1993 comparing Helmet to Ministry with this analogy:” Helmet are a precise knock to the jaw, whereas Ministry is a tidal wave of noise fucking you up.” Granted, I went to that show, purely based on that note, and I have always thought that this album cover really embodies that. It’s mechanic, it’s precise and it hits you where it hurts. There was a red cover, with a blue logo (shown as album cover), but there was also a blue cover with a red logo. I much prefer this one.
