Also, I don't normally review records, but this is a recent personal favourite and I find it terrible that one person is allowed to rate this album with one star on multiple occasions, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but sparky mark keeps leaving his opinion and inturn unfairly reducing this albums star rating, his additional 'reviews' should be deleted!!
No disrespect to these bands because I personally think they are brilliant but just because Test Icicles are signed to Domino and get raved about in the NME it does not make them a part of the new wave of indie currently taking the dancefloors and supermarket shelves of the world by storm. The bulk of the critism aimed at this band seems to be coming from the eye liner wearing scensters who were expecting another Gang of Four influenced band for them to pout over down the indie disco and then got all scared when confronted with a punk/funk/metal fusion of truly intense proportions.
Its no wonder they hate it but im sure that there will be people out there who have a more open mind when it comes to music who will really grow to love this album. Yes its loud and unsubtle but listen to a track like Whats Your Damage on full blast and i defy you not to jump around with a huge grin on your face. Then theres Circle Square Triangle, a track that even those who sound like your granny when confronted with this album ("theres no tune! you cant hear the words! turn it down! etc...")will have to admit is a "proper choon" which manages to be brillantly funky and rocking without sounding anything at all like Red Hot Chilli Peppers (hooray!).
The only critism I would really voice is that some of the tracks pass by without making much of an impact and fail to stand out next to the brilliant singles taken from the album.... Read more ›
