Armchair critics can rag on Riot City Blues or Beautiful Future all they want, but they are sadly mistaken. Those were two awesome albums. This one the equal to those two vastly underrated masterpieces and every bit as great, but vastly different. Primal Scream is about forever changing.

In the 90's Primal Scream were just untouchable, releasing groundbreaking album after another, but then the quality started to dip, perhaps the band had burned themselves out, or they'd settled down to raise families & there priorities had changed.
Whatever the reasons, PS released a series of, not bad records, but just a little disappointing (there was a time when the release of a new PR was a mayor musical event) compared to albums like "Xtrmntor" or "Vanishing Point".
So we arrive at "More Light", that sees the band completely rejuvenated, creating an epic & eclectic masterpiece.
Mixing a whole load of styles & moods, from soul to swirling densely packed psychedelics, Moroccan drone, a bit of David Lynch & the obligatory Stones track (obviously!), although after the "Screamdelica" tour I thought the album would be a lot more dance orientated.
Theirs is quite a lot of sax played throughout the record that adds a little bit of depth & atmosphere to the music. Gillespie's vocals (he sings on every track) are pretty strong as well, which can't be said for every PR album.
This album certainly maintains your interested throughout, & by the end your certainly feel your been on a fascinating musical journey.
As for the deluxe version of the album, the extra tracks are good, a little looser & atmospheric. None of they are quite strong enough to make the original record (which is probably why there extra tracks!) but are defiantly worth paying the extra for. The Andy Weatherall remix of "2013" is a bit pointless, you would have thought he'd had a stab at "It's alright, it's OK", perhaps he didn't think lightning would strike twice after the success of "Loaded"
So believe the hype, this is PR's strongest record since "Xtrmntor" & an early runner for best album of 2013.
Although I don't know what type of flower Mr Gillespie would make, quite a grumpy one me thinks.

I'm one of the very few individuals on this planet, I suppose, that finds Primal Scream's 1994 effort Give Out But Don't Give Up a fairly enjoyable effort. Go listen again! You'll see! Yes, the neon Confedate flag on the cover was a little much (not to mention overtly obvious), and three of the twelve songs are downright unlistenable, but I dare anyone with more than one musical taste bud to deny the funky power of the title cut, or the Euro-boogie of opening track Jailbird. It was no Screamadelica, and I was disappointed, but now that almost 20 years and five albums have passed I now see GOBDGU as a pretty good effort from The `Scream. Or, perhaps, it's because the `Scream have released what I consider (and I'm a fan!) one of the most unintentionally hysterically funny and quite turgid `homage' albums in the history of recorded music with the bilious Riot City Blues. Woeful is a word that comes to mind. Ick!

PS retreated after being crucified by not only the critics but also, and more importantly, by their fans, and came up with the dub-tastic Vanishing Point, the dark cousin to Screamadelica. In 2000 came XTRMNTR, an amazing album full of angst and electronics, and some of the best songs Primal Scream have ever written. Screamadelica remained my favorite, but this has rose fairly quickly and has been my #2 ever since. Evil Heat is underrated, paling (slightly) in comparison to the amazing XTRMNTR. As Pitchfork summed up: "so despite XTRMNTR's moments of glory, I filed it away and crossed my fingers awaiting its follow-up. After all, Primal Scream may be known for a lot of things, but consistency of style is not one of them." Right.

Then came the crap flood with the odorous Riot City Blues in 2006. The less said about this steaming, vomitous pile the better.

If you are a fan of Primal Scream, ( in the US I call them the best band no one knows about). then you will not be dissapointed .This disk seems like a natural progression from Exterminator. I do recommend you get the Deluxe version if only for the track "Running Out of Time" the horns and chaos are back as well with Producer David Holmes ( Exterminator ) and guest guitarist again Kevin Shields ( My Bloody Valentine). again the best album of the summer/year.
Fave tracks
1. Culturecide
2. Running out of time.
3. 2013
4. Goodbye Johnny
5. Hit Void
6. Sideman
7. heck all the songs I like, I haven't felt that way about one of their disks since 2000's Exterminator.

The Primals remain one of the best UK rock bands around...consistent, inventive, political, angry, sexy...their work is never boring, never bland. It's challenging and complex, working with a recipe of early House, Funkadelic, CAN, The Stooges, The Beatles and The Pretty Things (the psychedelia), and The Stones. More Light feels like a Dystopian science fiction novel by JG Ballard set to a sleazy future film score. Bobby hisses and croons and shouts on these tracks, in places evoking Peggy Lee and Nick Cave, in others Joe Strummer and Iggy Pop. The opening track 2013 has some powerfully scorching lyrics, challenging fake protest and creeping apathy, punctuated with a brassy horn riff stolen from a Herp Albert album. It sets the tone for this record, which seems to hold a cracked mirror to society, reporting back apocalyptic visions and broadcasting warnings. There isn't a bad track on this LP. I think my favorite is Relativity ("You're broken like your family/I guess you must be lonely..."). A powerful, aggressive, poetic album.
