"In a world where the entertainment industry devours art like a cancer, Controlled Bleeding are one of a handful of truly devoted experimental musicians."Inanition" is a splend example of their work. 16 tracks on 2 CDs spaning 14 years of their history(?), for a total of 2 hrs and 34 mins of music.Although it contains elements of both I would find difficulty in filing this album under ambient or industrial. The presence of soft tranquil vocals and intelligent guitar work seem to negate the industrial theory. And the diversity with in each song is to great to be considered purly ambient by most. None the less it remains heavily synthesised and the label of "electronic" seems adequate.Highlights include CB's cover of "Another Brick in the Wall" (Else where in this collection Pink Flyod's influence is not as obvious but certainly evident), "Tormentors's Song/Reprise", "Scourge-Remix" (BTW: I have a hard time believing that this was composed in 1981, Typo maybe?) and the awesome "Our Journey's End"(35 min long!)Placid yet overwhelming, dark and forboding "Innanition" is a true work of art, and one of my top ten favorite albums ever. It lacks the complexity of Download's "Furnace", the oddity of Coil's "A Thousand Lights in a Darkened Room" and the enginenuity or Einstuerzende Neubauten's "Ende Neu" yet it has a certain appeal which I can't quite put my finger on. Go out of your way to buy this album. (Rating: 4.6 out of 5)"

""Inanition" is one of my favorite albums of all time! The tracks run the gamut from liquidy, oceanic sounds to full-bodied, rich vocals as in "The Tormentor's Song". I would highly recommend this CD to anyone interested in a new dimension of ambient music - this collection will transport you!"
