Banks & Steelz - "Anything But Words" music album review

Music Album Review: Banks & Steelz - "Anything But Words" (8/10)

Banks & Steelz are like “buddies playing chess” according to The RZA, which is apparent on their collaboration record Anything But Words. RZA, from the legendary hip-hop group the Wu-Tang Clan, and Paul Banks, of the American rock band Interpol, come together like milk and Oreos as heard on ill songs like “Giant,” “Ana Electronic” and on the title track “Anything But Words,” but the duo turn lukewarm on “Speedway Sonora” and “Conceal.” Raw, timely, reflective and genuine is what Anything But Words is all about, something the infused hip-hop/rock genre has been missing for quite some time.

Score: 8 out of 10
