Although Tests is the first full length release by the Microphones it's a terrible starting point for exploring their material, but fans will find a lot to like on this record. The album really lives up to its name with almost all songs having unconventional structures and it makes for a record that's magnificent as often as it's unbearable. Tracks like Pre-Amp and Feedback love are great and Oh Anna stands with the best of the band's work, but even as a fan of Danse Manatee I find Monsters almost completely unlistenable. A great listen for fans but newcomers should go straight to the Glow pt 2.
