The Greater Wrong of the Right is the ninth studio album by Skinny Puppy. It was their first new full-length LP since 1996's The Process. It was also their first album since 1985's Bites without the support of deceased keyboardist Dwayne Goettel. This is the first Skinny Puppy album not produced by Dave Ogilvie, who at the time of its recording was concentrating on his own band, Jakalope.

The percussion sample of "Pro-Test" was taken from a live performance by Gary Numan. The original sample can be heard on his CD, Live in London on the introductory track. The art direction and design was credited to Steven R. Gilmore.[12]

It is one of the few Skinny Puppy albums to chart in the Billboard 200, peaking at #176.[13]
