4 stars For me it is one of the best WA albums. "Just Testing" is a great summary of the first era of their career and it could be a fine step into new decade. With head hold up high. Into the bright future. Unfortunetly after this release MCA broke off the contract with the band and Martin Turner decided to leave...

On this album The Ashes found golden connection between the classic WA ("Helpless", "Living Proof") and a new sound ("Insomnia"). They did not afraid to find a new formula for forthcoming 80s.

The history likes to repeat itself. Yes also made a great album "Tormato" - a new meaning of their music for the further years, but just like WA after recording the last fine album there was a greatest split up in bands line up which was a big meaning for next years.

"Just Testing" is a fantastic closing of the golden decade of progressive and classic rock.

Patique | 4/5 |
