First of all, I’m not exactly the biggest Interpol fanatic and also the Wu-Tang clan For me personally the spark never really jumped over. However, when I learned that the rapper RZA (here under the synonym Steelz), who is one of the founding heads of the famous clan, and Paul Banks, frontman of Interpol, together publish an album, that sounded interesting in my ears. Indie rock and rap mixed on a record? That could be an exciting project. So what can I say about “Anything But Words” after repeated listening? First of all, it’s really worthwhile to deal with this album, because the listener not only gets great musical works on a total of twelve songs, but also, along with Kool Keith, Ghostface Killah and Method Man, exciting features. Guests presented. Then there’s Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine, who contributed a lot of the song parts on the song “Wild Season”. “Anything But Words” is a worth listening album with some highlight songs, but also two or three pieces that you could have saved yourself. It is a pity that the song “Giant”, which is by far the biggest catchy tune on the CD, was packed directly onto the record as the first piece. I recommend just skipping the opener and listening to it as the very last song to end the album, because “Anything But Words” by Banks & Steelz looks like a great, coherent album that lives up to the listener’s expectations.
