Test Icicles-For Screening Purposes Only


This is arguably one of the finest albums of the 2000's. Test Icicles were a terrific genre-mashing trio from the U.K., with a sound that can be described any number of ways. I like to say they're like the B-52's meets Benny Bennassi meets Bad Brains. At times spastic, at times poppy, occasionally somewhat hood, weird the whole way through, yet absolutely terrific. Whether it's the dance-pop of Circle, Square, Triangle, the hardcore-meets-house on Catch It, or the just plain weird, like on Dancing On Pegs, this album is bloody brilliant, and definitely worth a listen.
