Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Third studio album released by the Scottish alternative rock band, and their first commercial release as a success.

Amazon.com

A watershed '90s release, Screamadelica was the most convincing marriage of overground rock and underground dance music yet. With one foot in Beggars Banquet-era Stones (the gospel-rock "Movin' on Up") and the other in the trippy soundscapes of rave culture (the Orb-produced "Higher Than the Sun"), Primal Scream caught the mind-blown euphoria of Ecstacy better than anyone. Frontman Bobby Gillespie had no singing voice to speak of, but his vision of cosmic hedonism made him a drugged-out Pied Piper for the acid tribes. From the incantatory anthems "Loaded" and "Come Together" to the sinister rendering of the 13th Floor Elevators' "Slip Inside This House," Screamadelica was a modern psych classic. --Barney Hoskyns

Released over ten years ago, Screamadelica still sounds fresh today. To these ears it stands as one of the best albums released in the ninties. However, looking at it on paper it looks like it should have been a total failure. Primal Scream had been a noisy rock band who suddenly veered into dance music. Equal parts techno, gospel, circa 68 Stones and spacey dub, it move in several different directions, yet somehow manages to cohere. There is no shortage of great tracks, with MOVIN' ON UP(gospel meets Let it Bleed Stones), STEP INSIDE THIS HOUSE(techno cover of the 13th Floor Elavators!), DAMAGED(like a long lost bluesy outtake from Beggar's Banquet), LOADED(cool Peter Fonda sample) and HIGHER THAN THE SUN(ambient dub worthy of The Orb)among the standouts. Released the same year as Nirvana's Nevermind, this release stands at least as tall as that seminal album. In time it may even eclispe it!

Primal Scream are a band that move musically in so many different guises & Sounds, that If you became a fan of theirs, through a particular album, there's nothing to say that the next album is going to resemble the previous album, in any...way, shape or form. A band that reflect the musical landscape of the current time, and arguably take contemporary influences and ideas, and fashion albums that bookmark certain

periods in their career.

The year is 1991, and Britain is in the midst of a change in the current movement of music. "Dance Music" has become one of the more dominant sounds to have shaped Britain's music scene. And the majority of the music buying public has become enthralled by it, many acts producing the majority of the dance music, had discovered the drug "Ecstasy" years previous, and were, making scintillating fusions of acid, House, Techno & Alternative Dance. Primal Scream themselves had become no strangers to the Drug, and although their form of all-encompassing rock was extremely diverse, it wasn't truly representative of the explosion of Dance orientated music entering the charts. That's when the band hooked up with highly regarded Dance producer "Andy Weatherall", who'd worked on everything from: downbeat, Experimental techno, IDM, Acid, Dance. And would lend his considerable dance productions skills to embellish the album with a sunny-eyed optimism, and Hedonistic glow, (along with a helping of deep psychedelic / Exuberant arrangements).

This is it, the album where psychedelia, techno and blues rock all blend together in one blissful mix. This is also one of the best albums I've ever heard just for the sheer variety of styles that can be found. Most of the tunes are very trip hop oriented then there are the blues rock flavorings that resemble the Stones at their peak. This was the exact opposite end of the musical spectrum back in the 90's when, in the U.S., the grunge scene was in full swing. In the U.K. this album was a big hit but it didnt make quite that big of a splash over here in the states as we were engrossed in Cobain and company. But this album deserves more attention than it has received, its one of the most original albums I've ever heard, true it may be a mish mash of familiar genres but the way its all put together and heard sounds brand new. Anyways highly reccomended!

Alas the impact of having to take out a second mortgage every time you go into a garage at the moment precludes the purchase of the super deluxe tin box set of this classic album by Bobby Gillespie's funsters Primal Scream. Should however the lottery ever yield more than a tenner then it will be first into the basket. Until then this remastered version of the 20 year old Screamadelica will do fine (where has the time gone?). "Screamadelica" is one of the great music fusion albums. Just about every music genre is to be found in its grooves from jazz to dub from rock to rave, but more than this is segues together as a unified whole with a underpinning vibe which makes it one of the best British albums of the past two decades.

It is of course a album for ever associated with "the summer of love" in the early 1990s and there is no denying that the band partook of a vast array and range of substances in its making. Gillespie for example has recently confessed that he was so out of it during the recording of the second track "Slip inside this house" that he didn't provide the vocal, instead it was completed by Robert Young on warbling duties. Similarly there is some lovely irony in the fact that the year it won the Mercury Prize in 1992, one bookie had Simply Red's "Stars" as the favourite. Primal Scream of course were more concerned to get higher than the sun and this album today sounds a fresh as ever with the new remastering giving it a pristine clarity and focus, although to be fair the first mix particularly by the combined talent of Andy Weatherall, Jimmy Miller and the Orb was a miracle of its age.
