5.0 out of 5 stars The last beautiful soul hero on this planet...
Time after time Screamadelica is ranked as one of THE albums of all time, but personally Vanishing Point ranks higher than it anyday...Dub beats, fantastic samples, dirty bass and gritty guitar all add to Bobby's fantastic 'stuff you' vocals...I don't like to compare bands, but if you like Death in Vegas...you'll love this. Classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mmmm....Trippy., 9 Feb 2000
This review is from: Vanishing Point (Audio CD)
Primal Scream's music has a reputation for being largely influenced by ecstasy, but thankfully it can be enjoyed by non drug users aswell. This album is a dark fusion between dance and rock, and works surprisingly well when by all principals it shouldn't. Burning Wheel starts off the album by making the listener feel disorientated with its jangly guitars and swirly sound effects, and from then on inwards it's a rollercoaster ride of big beats and motion sickness. The highlight of the album is the 10 minute long Trainspotting, written for the film of the same name, which was about drug addicts....

5.0 out of 5 stars like a butterfly sitting on a pill., 18 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Vanishing Point (Audio CD)
made using a wide range of mind altering drugs, vanishing point is the ultimate fusion of trips, giving the agression,the soul,the speed and the unalloyed mind of prml scrm.the finest track,to me,is kowalski due to the sounds and the sweet drugged up lyrics.amazing.it plays in my mind continuously tripping me out.who needs drugs when they give you every mood and trippy visions i need to pass away my days.let your mind play with your vision and feelings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gimme Medication, 15 Jun 2007
By 
CJA (London. UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Vanishing Point (Audio CD)
If it's really for sale for less than £2, then you can't afford to not own this album. Somewhat undervalued, I bet that in 5 to 10 years time, bands will be namedropping this album as a must-mention major influence.

Brilliant, dark, druggy and unlike anything anyone else was doing (the others were flogging the exhausted pony that was Brit Pop, probably), Vanishing Point was new territory for Primal Scream and for British rock. While the Brit Poppers were riding a cocaine wave of increasingly banal, mainstream success, our then Brighton-based heroes Primal Scream (increasingly seen as veteran rock n rollers even back then) appeared to be exploiting the anxieties, paranoia and 'strung-outness' of a speed/e/whatever comedown to move away from Stones wannabe territory and show their potential, find their voice, and begin mining a very dark and twisted seem indeed. Flashes (flashbacks?) of Screamadelica and Give Out are evident, as are nods to the drrty techno sounds they went on to produce. In this way, VP is something of a link in the Primal Scream evolutionary chain, but it's also much, much more - it's a trip, a dark and twisting road trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nasty indeed..., 13 Oct 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Vanishing Point (Audio CD)
Everyone knows and probably owns Screamadelica, it's one of thealbums so often heard in the wee small hours. If the album before this was rocky and Scream was sort of soothing, then Vanishing Point is a sinister cross between the two with lots of freaky sounds and retro guitar riffs. There's even a cover of Motorhead which is quite odd but strangely apealing. If you like this album then look out for Echo Deck, a dub remix of most of the tracks which shouldn't be played when you're feeling sleepy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the best Primal Scream album ever, or what?!, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vanishing Point (Audio CD)
Have to agree with other reviewers - this album is awesome - has hardly been out of player since I bought it! Can't believe I left it so long before buying it - may have been put off by their Mcr Apollo show at the time of VP's release - was pretty shambolic compared with their normal first class gigs!! Great stuff - go buy it!...anyway, back to the medication.....

4.0 out of 5 stars A good chill-out album, 27 May 2013

This review is from: Vanishing Point (MP3 Download)
If you'rte looking for a 'Screamadelica' or a 'Don't Give....", you won't find it here. This is dubby, downbeat but chilled. Another side to Primal Scream and well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars My all time favourite album, 15 May 2013
By 
Paul Scollon (Ireland) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Vanishing Point (Audio CD)
Probably one of the best albums from the late 90s, and certainly my own favourite. Perfect for coming down after a heavy night out, or simply lying in the afternoon with your eyes closed. Mani's bass playing is his best ever. A great concept album to go with a great movie (Vanishing Point 1971). Fact - on the cover of "Motorhead," Gillespie sings the first verse through a Darth Vader mask!

This is somewhere beyond excellent and every year it sounds better and better (just finished listening to the whole album on my Denon headphones, in fact, and it was like hearing it new all over again.)
