Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Bobby Gillespie and band spend much of their third album drifting 'tween side two of Sticky Fingers (acoustic blooze like "Big Jet Plane," complete with Bobby Price-like horns) and the more celebratory hits of Sly & The Family Stone ("Funky Jam"). It could conceivably be a huge send-up, but they play it with a straight face and hence should be taken at least as seriously as Lenny Kravitz or the Black Crowes. --Jeff Bateman

Apparently, there's an unwritten law that says you can't possibly like both versions of Primal Scream? Well, I beg to differ! I happen to dig both the groundbreaking psychedelic/electronica sounds of the "Screamadelica" and "Vanishing Point" discs as well as this far from innovative but still hugely enjoyable slice of retro-rock. Fans of 70s-style hard rock with generous doses of funk, soul and blues will like this CD alot. When it comes to music, variety IS the spice of life and diversity is more than welcome. Expand your horizons...just because it's different from the rest of their catalog doesn't automatically make it a failure.

Yes, I got into Primal Scream a little late (with this record). I know that some of their older fans look at this as a kind of sell-out. But I just don't see the problem. Screamadelica's a cool record. So is the brutal Xtrmntr. And the Stonesy, P-Funkish Give Out...The strongest tracks are the first two (Jailbird, Rocks), plus "Funky Jam", "Call on Me" and the terrific "Big Jet Plane"...Call me a fake fan. Call it what you want. This is a really fun album...

It is apparently not cool to like this Primal Scream album best. I guess I'm not cool then. A review of their later CD, Vanishing Point calls this Rolling Stones meets Black Crowes awfulness. The reviewers tend to praise the later, loud, screaming electronic music. It's a matter of taste. This is one of my favorite CDs. I find the critically praised Primal Scream albums to be noisy and non-musical. If the band listens to what the papers say they will move further and further away from the sound of Screamadelica and this cd towards the louder fare. In my opinion that would be a shame.

Coming as it did after the undeniably brilliant and forward-thinking "Screamadelica"this little slab of full-on retro blooze rock a-la the Faces or "Exile"-era Stones was horribly received at the time of its release. Several years on, though, this one's aged quite well. It's not in the least bit innovative, but it's certainly a hell of a lot of fun. The rockers, like "Jailbird" and "Rocks", swagger with just enough Jagger-on-s***k groove to make them work, while the ballads -- "Cry Myself Blind" being the best -- stack up to "Damaged" off "Screamadelica" quite well. In retrospect it makes sense that the group would follow a sprawling, innovative, psychedelic masterpiece like "Screamadelica" with an album full of small pleasures and garage-rock charms. Final word: if you're looking for electronica-drenched pop, there's none of that here. If the reason you like the Scream is Bobby Gillespie's songwriting and singing, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I bought this album for the song "Rocks". I love that song. As I listened to the album, I was surprised by the diversity of sounds. The only previous exposure to Primal Scream I had had was with their Come Together EP (I can't remember the name of the EP). This album contains a real variety of music. "Jailbird" has kind of a Southern Rock vibe going. "Rocks" is a contagious, thumping track with great riffs that you will want to scream along with. "Cry Myself Blind" is a mellow, country-tinged track that I really liked. And "Free" has a bluesy feel to it. So that's quite a variety going there. I think there's something for everybody here. Diversity is a good thing and I like to hear it from artists. It is refreshing and surprising and is so much more inspiring than just giving people what they expect.

Primal Scream! What do you say about a band that for each and every album they decide to do another genre? This album is an extreme directional move from screamadelica's psychedelic sounds and the indie heydey of Sonic Flower Groove and Primal Scream. This is all to do with rock (rocks, jailbird) and then some of the most beautiful ballads ever composed (I'm Gonna Cry Myself Blind, I'll Be There For You and Big Jet Plane). And also bluesy funk on Give out but dont you give up and Funy Jam. This was my first primal scream album and at the time my mates called it "an album for chewing gum"...nevermind them...this is an album to demonstrate that you dont need to release another album the same as your last chart topper...please buy this if you havent heard it...the only band to cover the Stones and still remain original!!!!

Talk about unforeseen surprises. Primal Scream's GIVE OUT BUT DON'T GIVE UP is a major departure and improvement over their last album, SCREAMEDELICA. A bevy of superstar producers and engineers were hired to help make this album a hip shaking, soul stirring, great slab of funky rock and roll. Tom Dowd (Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and Cream) and George Drakoulias (Black Crowes) took turns twisting the knobs for this delicious platter.

Also contributing on three tracks was Dr. Funkenstein himself, the one and only George Clinton. Primal Scream even let George sing lead vocals on two tracks, the fun-as-all-gitout "Funky Jam" and the super cool title track, "Give Out But Don't Give Up." Not surprisingly, these particular cuts are among the standout tracks on this album.

"Rocks" is a total gem, one of the best retro rock anthems since Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way." Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie is blessed with a remarkable set of pipes, offering up a range that suits different material that will remind the listener of everyone from the Rolling Stones to the Parliament to the Black Crowes. Very well done. Great album!
