Proven in Action is a domestic reissue of a 1990 concert that took place in Montreal, Canada. This concert consisted of some of the more classical Test Dept. material. Not only were compositions taken from Pax Britannica, but there is a great deal of new material as well. As usual all of the lyrics are extremely political with a single minded focus on England. Throughout the years Test Dept. have always been very vocal about the working class struggle to survive. This topic is heavily explored along with plenty of patriotic imagery throughout the album. Obviously most of the events mentioned in the vocals would make more sense if you were born in Great Britan, but general concepts are presented rather effectively. If you are a fan of the live Test Dept. complete with bagpipes, organs, a live choir, and classical accompaniment then you will want look into this album.
