AllMusic Review by

The sequel to the Invisible label's first Ministry tribute album, Wish You Were Queer, Another Prick in the Wall: A Tribute to Ministry, Vol. 2 is essentially more of the same, right down to the Pink Floyd puns in the titles. Although Meg Lee Chin is the only repeat artist, the sounds of the two records are very similar -- mostly synth-heavy industrial dance versions of Ministry songs both better and lesser known. En Esch (of KMFDM) is easily the biggest name here, and there's also a contribution from ex-Chemlab frontman Jared Louche, but the remainder of the artists are largely obscure and all too often don't add their own personalities to the material. If you liked the first Ministry tribute, you'll find this one enjoyable as well; if, like some Ministry fans, you didn't feel the first one did the band justice, it's best to steer clear.
