"Test Department's Beating a Retreat is a fair album. The first three tracks are good, especially "Fall From Light." I also think "Cold Witness" is a good track; it is the least musical one out of the nine. The latter two tracks ("Compulsion" and "Total State Machine") are videos and I do not think they work as well with images. The other problem is this recording sounds a little short for the price of paying over $14.00. The best album to get from Test Department is The Unacceptable Face of Freedom (a masterpiece)."
Great old school industrial

"if you want to hear what older industrial sounds like, get this. admittedly, i have not heard any other test dept releases, so i can't compare this to their other work. still, this is easily in the same league as older EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN albums like "drawings of patient o.t." and i cannot find any real flaws with it other than the fact that it is only 37 minutes long."
