Twitch is the second studio album by American rock band Ministry, released on March 12, 1986 by Sire Records. Recorded mostly in London and West Berlin during 1985, it was produced by the band's frontman Al Jourgensen and On-U Sound Records owner Adrian Sherwood.

The album stepped away from the synthpop-oriented form of their previous debut album With Sympathy (1983) and moved toward a darker, more aggressive sound in the form of EBM. Released by Sire Records, Jourgensen was granted more artistic control over the production than under Arista/BMG. Twitch was re-released in 1990 with two additional tracks. Twitched, an unauthorized 2003 release by Radioactive Records, is a remastered version of Twitch, featuring the track listing that the band is said to have intended.

No problems with my copy. Good inherent volume and to my ears, it sounds more textured and richer than the 1990 reissue CD. Looking forward to getting to know the album more this way.
Chilele
Very clean sound with no pops or clicks evident throughout any of the songs. Mine is #985, orange with tiny streaks of black though so mine isn't completely orange or even bright orange as you see in the photos.
Gtonydne
The cover looks like Killing Joke's Album Night Time btw
Camper
Does anyone know if this version has the PRINTED inner sleeves ?Thanks
Xor
I really apreciate it, thank you very much, i think i will stick with my original copy from SIRE.
Ariurin
It has a black poly lined inner sleeve but it does include a seperate insert that replicates the original printed inner sleeves. I hope that helps.
Tantil
My copy sounds bad, lots of distortion and hiss. Anyone else struggling with this?

Wobble was thanked on the sleeve notes for helping Al get to grips with a new synthesiser. the 2 had planned a collaboration but - in Wobbles words, they "discovered a bottle of scotch" and the collab was forgotten :(I love this album, pure dark industrial before the heavy metal influences started to creep inIsle of Man (unlisted bonus track on some releases) has a percussion track that could have come off PiL's Flowers of Romance- and that's a good thing!I haven't heard the Cabaret Voltaire album referred to be the reviewer but when I played twitch to a friend he also commented on the similarity

Anyone familiar with Ministry will know that before helping create industrial speed metal, Al Jourgensen took his music through quite a transformation. After releasing a few rough tracks, Ministry's debut album was a synth heavy, pop friendly sound, complete with saxophones and new romance vocals. Jourgensen claims he was pushed by the label to produce an album in this style to capitalise on the new wave, trend at the time. Others believe it was Al's choice, albeit for the same reason.Whatever the reason, Ministry went back underground and subsequent releases got heavier and heavier. 'Twitch', a fairly disjointed yet wonderfully crafted album, falls pretty much in the middle of new romance synth and abrasive industrial. The albums shifts between heavy, aggressive tracks like 'We believe' and the relentless 'Where you at now/Crash and burn/'Twitch II' to lighter songs such as 'The angel' and 'All day remix'. One constant on 'Twitch' is the rich synth tones, and Adrian Sherwood's signature drum sounds and inspired programming. This ties together the different sub genres, samples and vocal styles found throughout the album. Though it won't be to everyone's taste, particularly people who prefer Ministry from '88 onwards, it really is a fantastic album and we'll worth a listen. This unofficial cassette release is not bad quality, though I don't have an official cassette to compare it with. I sounds like it was dubbed from a 'Twitch' vinyl as opposed to a CD. The only real difference is 'Where you at now...' has been moved from track 7 to track 4. A strange choice but it works quite well.

As another commenter has noted the record has similarities to Cabaret Voltaire's Micro-Phonies. Equally the segue Where You At Now/Crash and Burn/Twitch could just as easily have fitted on Keith Leblanc's Major Malfunction - which is perhaps not surprising considering the involvement of the same people. Otherwise, very much a continuation from the late Wax Trax records such as Nature of Love, indeed All Day was from then.

This is a highly underrated and overlooked album by Ministry. Why more Industrial dance clubs don't play anything off this album is beyond me?!?! This is by far their danciest album and probably should've been more iconic to the industrial scene because of it's darker side which bridged the gap between poppy 80's and dark electronic music. I own a lot of albums from this era and it was definitely a breakthrough album. Nothing quite like it.
Cezel
Yeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh, better than the best, that's my favorite Ministry's albumwhats a pity that uncle Al do not plays now, like three dozen years ago he did

My favorite ministry cd.If you like front 242 style then this is an essential cd for you,the music is totally electronic- pure EBM , Electro Industrial.The track Where You at Now? / Crash and Burn / Twitch is an attack of massive electro - industrial sounds and sound effects ,the frequencies of the sounds created to break the bones, the feeling is that a thousand bombs falling on you .A spectacular Electro Industrial track.Best tracks:Just Like You.We Believe.Over the Shoulder.The Angel. Where You at Now? / Crash and Burn / Twitch. Isle Of Man ( a bonus track on the cd , Not appears on the LP.It's a shame ministry do not have many more albums in this style like Twitch , if you like the album style I recommend on Twelve Inch Singles (1981-1984), Early Trax CD 2004 and The Land of Rape and Honey album 1988 , the music on Land of Rape and Honey is a combination of the style on Twitch together with Rock industrial ( Amazing album)

My favorite Ministry album and one of my favorite albums period. It is one of those albums that is just unbelievable from the beginning to the end. The songs and the production are something else. Ahead of its time in a way, but you can spot influences, if you are familiar with Al's background of musical influence. Call me strange, but I think I've heard ZZ Top "Eliminator-Afterburner" era in "Twitch".If you are into industrial/electronic/synth-pop, you must own this album.
Manemanu
This album is a lot like the Revco "Big Sexy Land" album in many ways. But it also is when Al started to realize that Industrial is where he was headed for his career. I think this album is his best Ministry one next to "With Sympathy" and they couldn't be more different. Twitch is just a flat out masterpiece and I wish he had stayed with this sound a bit longer but he is a man that changes with every album. "The land of rape and Honey" had some similarities but all and all this album is the essence of Ministry to me and will always be. Greatness and complex beats intertwined with grating vocals at it's best. Thank you Al for this classic.
Brol
Perhaps the perfect example of late '80s industrial dance, Ministry's TWITCH combines dance beats with more menacing and grinding sounds than their earlier synth-pop leanings, not to mention the dystopian, anti-establishment lyrics. "Just Like You," for example, blends a classic cymbal progression with metal clangs and Jourgensen's haranguing vocals, while "We Believe" takes a dim view of the militaristic-governmental complex, with claustrophobic electronics to reflect his vocals. But far from being completely dark, there's also the oddly ethereal "The Angel," which would be the last pretty Ministry song ever. The influence of Adrian Sherwood is clearly evident on this album, especially on the funky-dubby "My Possession." But the centerpiece of the album, the dance-noise-thrash hybrid of "Where You At Now/Crash and Burn/Twitch (Version II)" clearly shows Jourgensen's growing interest in noise and aggression, something that would mark their later work. The final track, "Isle of Man," is an environmentally-friendly work, one that would wave goodbye to a kinder, gentler Ministry forever.
