I hate it when this happens. You have a band that's at a creative crossroads. They can take their music in one of two directions, and they pick the wrong one.
And so we see Fireball Ministry, I band I have credited with a forgotten classic on these very pages, headed the wrong way on their new, self-titled album. Confronted with the intersection of edgy rock and roll and country-shaded metal, Fireball Ministry took the path of toward mainstream rock and the possibility of commercial appeal.
