CD Reviews

One of the best electronica.
Mushfiqur Rahman | Dhaka, Bangladesh | 02/21/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had asked one of my friends to buy this cd. It is by far one of the best electronica albums I have heard. I cannot stop raving about this album. It is one of those rare albums where every track in itself is a masterpiece and shows the diversity of their music. The industrial god fathers have done it again. Except this time they mostly weave melody with drum and base or I should say around it. I have always considered Test Dept to be one of the best percussions oriented (electro/industrial) band. It is their unique ability to beautifully and seamlessly meld industrial, tribal, middle eastern and indian elements in their music that separate them from most other acts. Tracks that standout are Atlantis, 2Ghettos and Miotica. While this doesn't sound anything much like the earlier Test Dept, I must admit that I like the way this band has evolved. Also check out Totality which also is another fantastic album."
The best release in any genre of 1998

"Test Dept. has displayed an uncanny ability to adopt their rythmic industrial style to any genre, be it classical, traditional industrial, celtic, techno or dub. Though this latest release lacks explicit thematic content, much like their previous release "Totality" it brings them into uncharted musical waters, in this case ranging from full-on jazz-laced jungle to harsh electronics reminiscent of Aphex Twin, with some soulful dub tracks thrown in. Buy it, but give it a few listens for the genius to sink in..."
