Intriguing, but not for everyone 21 Oct 2009
By Jonathan Dedward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this cd after reading glowing reports on this rather under-appreciated band and watching a few videos on Youtube. Unfortunately there were very few actual discussions of individual albums and little info to go on, so I took a bit of a risk when I put money down on this one. First of all, the curious should be aware that Ecstacy Under Duress is a compilation of material recorded very early in Test Dept.'s career (1982-1983). The recording quality is rather poor, like it was transferred directly off of a cassette tape. The music itself is pretty great. It's all performance driven percussion and aggressive shouting. It had a very tribal, ritualistic feeling and it's very good, it's just too bad the recording is so lacking. There is very little bass and way too much treble, and the disc is mixed very low, so you have to turn it up to fully appreciate the power of the performance. Sadly, when you do this, there are some high-pitched noises that really are unpleasant to hear. But what a performance! The music is all about the live drumers... of which there must be several, all banging away on metallic... things. It's primal, with nary an electronic sound in evidence. I'd compare it to a slightly more grounded and political Neubauten, but only if I had to compare it to anybody. Still, for newbies, I'd suggest looking into "The Unacceptable Face of Freedom," which I hear is their masterpiece, before buying this live material.
