Review Summary: Ambience that is so textbook it is not even worth the time to check out.
"The Crackling of The Anonymous" by the German group Inade is the latest treat my blog has serve[d] me. Let's just say, I don't even think this album is worth talking about so instead I'm going to talk about what I served myself tonight. It was an eight oz flank steak, and I was really lazy from the eight hour shift I had tonight so I just grilled it straight out of the container and used no sauce or anything. So, as is predictable, the steak was pretty bland and typical. But, I really can't fault it that much, I mean I was in the mood for a steak and it suited its purpose. It certainly won't go down in my memory like some steaks have--the certain filet that I indulged in South Dakota was utterly delicious, or the completely raw chuck cut my father grilled me for my 12th birthday that left me with food sickness for a couple of days. No, the steak tonight was neither good or bad, it was just.. a steak.
Perhaps, if I would've taken the time to flavor my steak with some unique ingredients such as sauce or spices it would've stuck out in my memory. Perhaps, if it wasn't simply a completely overdone version of a steak, it would've at least perked my interests. But no, it was a typical bland steak. Is there anything wrong with that? In my opinion at times, no. A good plain steak can be good for some situations. Tonight, I was tired and just resorted to something easy and mindless to eat and it did its job.
Well, I mean that was one of the lamest ideas I've ever had. But basically, as you can pick up Inade is like my steak. Its typical ambient music which I mean can be good at times, but it'll never be memorable. "The Crackling of The Anonymous" has been done so many times before it's almost funny that Inade thought they were doing something interesting when they made the album. Waves of sound, sampled voices, drones of noise…god it's like a textbook example of what the ambient genre is. The point is if you're into ambience, this album may spark some interest in you, but otherwise don't even bother. It's not like Inade did when making it.
