Culled from tapes of 60 concerts Bad Religion
gave during 1996 on the Gray Race
tour, the European-only Tested
is a reasonably effective document of the group at the peak of their post-Brett Gurewitz
power. Since the 27 tracks are taken from separate shows, the album never quite gains momentum like an actual live show, yet many of the individual moments (including three previously unrecorded songs) are excellent. Tested
remains the province of dedicated collectors, but those fans will find it worthwhile.
