Ministry: from dance to industrial metal

A co-worker and friend of mine who is in his 40’s (and I’m guessing here) and who likes music from the 70’s and 80’s told me today that he likes Ministry. I was shocked since I know Ministry is a very hard core/industrial/metal band and there was no way for this guy to like it. I know it is not his style.
But then he showed me something that I would never have guessed: back in the 80’s Ministry was a dance/pop band! Similar to Duran Duran or Depeche Mode. Talk about changing your style!!!

Sample some of their early work from the album With Sympathy (1988) and compare it with one of their newer albums Rio Grande Blood (2006).
