The album's title Animositisomina is a palindrome made of the word "animosity" spelled without the final letter and both forward and backward. This album nods to the group's new wave past with a cover of Magazine's "The Light Pours out of Me," the group returned to the quality of its Wax Trax prime on this record, with an opener (the title track) that ranks up there with classics like "Burning Inside" and "Just One Fix." Animositisomina is the last Ministry album with Paul Barker, thus ending the band's "Hypo Luxa/Hermes Pan" production duo.
