Construggle Test is yet another European electro industrial band that are good, but don't really do anything new or different. Right when the first song begins it has the traditional energetic dance floor ready rhythms and beats created with electronic sequencing, sampling, synths and drum programming that sound exactly like what one would come to expect from this style of music. The vocals come in with a thick deep accent and sing roughly over everything. This is pretty much how the entire album works from start to finish. The music is rather fast paced and straight forward. It's well produced with a good quality to it. There's even two different male singers that take turns with the vocal delivery. The overall feel of the album is dark and moody with a slight touch of anger and aggression. However, there are cold and haunting melodies included here at times as well. Each song manages to include things that allow them to stand out from one another, but everything still comes off sounding the same. When all is said and done this is your traditional cookie cutter electro industrial music. While done well, it does not stand out. You can enjoy listening to this right from the start because it has a familar sound to it, but it won't be after too many listens that it all becomes too familar and grows old. If you want another standard dark electro industrial album, this is a good one to choose. However, if you're getting tired of the same old thing you might want to pass on this.
