I cannot emphasize enough how monged and spaced out this album sounds, even more so than anything the Dandy Warhols (first two albums, not the new 'pop' encarnation) or SFA could muster.
'Vanishing Point', this albums template is one of my favorite albums ever, eclipsing both 'XTRMNTR' and 'Evil Heat' for essential Screamabilty, but 'Echo Dek' is totally off the wall.
Existing in a completely different galaxy from the new Kevin Sheilds era Scream of moutains of sonic 'Valentines-ish' guitar, the Sherwood mix of an already horizontally challenged album is excellent in its appropriation of Augustus Pablo Dub, from randon bleeps to outbursts of what sounds like Classic FM and whole oceans of echo, this album sounds massive and can easily compete with Screamadelica's more relaxed moments for the sountrack to the end of an evening.
Not essential, or suprising if you own this albums inspiration, just you'd be pleased you bought it.

Scruffed up, chaotic and dark, play this when you need to loosen your musical waistband. Almost a genre in its own right.

I have listened to many albums but this one stays at the top. Maybe I just love those ones that have soul - I want to get scared, I want to smile, cry.... I have recently listened to Fourtet - Pause and even though a great piece of work I miss the subtleness that goes with Echo Dek. It's a joy to lie down and just listen. It's multilayered, emotional, great and I love it. Buy it. It's worth.

A little bit of a pointless exercise, making a dance re-mix album sourced from a record that was quite dance oriented in the first place.
PR would have been better off applying the same process to “Give out..”, in fact the most successful track on “Echo Dek” is “Dub in Vain”, a slightly woozy version of “Medication” which is the only real rock styled track on “Vanishing Point”, & featuring some nice electric piano. Admittedly “Vanishing Dub” (remix of “out of the void) has a nice laid back acid-sixties-tinged melody, but two songs a good album does not make.
The vinyl version of "Echo Dek" consists of five 7'inch disks, that are played at 33 1/3.
So album your only probably only ever going to play a couple of times, so for the Primal Scream completists only.

Yes, it's the dub version of Vanishing point. Excellent to chill-out to. If you don't like Primal Scream?, even better!

This record uses vanishing point as it's base material, but the changes seem almost pointless compared to the briliance of the source.
It's a bit dub, and a bit chillout,...
it's also not a bit as good as the original.

I enjoyed Vanishing Point so much I decided to buy it's dub remix sister, and let me tell you, it ain't arf bad.
