Click Click is stated as one of the earlier electro-industrial bands. The early works are great examples of the beginning of this great genre. Later on (after a split-period), the band came back with a more EBM-sound, resulting in their hit-track Yakutska. If I may believe Wikipedia, this new release ("Those Nervous Surgeons") is named after the band founding members Adrian Smith and Derek E Smith were in before they started Click Click. Could it mean they are reaching back to the older (industrial) sound of the early years?

The release has only one potential earworm: Rats in my bed (a re-edit version of a track earlier released on the Skin and Bones EP). Two tracks have a nice groove but may be just a tad too soft to reach the dancefloor (Man In A Suit and What Do You Want). The others have a more relaxing easy-listening groove with a hint of ambient and soundscapes.

Fact is indeed, that the soundscapes on e.g. Mercy (from Party Hate, 1986) or Loss of Breath (Shadowblack, 1997) are back. Personally I think it could use some more of the electronics like in Rotor Babe (Wet Skin and Curious Eye, 1987) or Moist (Bent Massive, 1989).

If you are a self-claimed industrial or oldschool EBM-fan, Click Click should already be widely present in your collection. If this is not the case: Those Nervous Surgeons is a great starter!
