4.0 out of 5 stars Grew on me, 21 Feb 2009

This review is from: XTRMNTR (Audio CD)
Since originally reviewing this album in 2009, my opinion on it has changed as of 2011. My original rating was 2 stars because I thought it was too different from the Primal Scream which I hear on Screamadelica and Vanishing Point. I also found it too heavy. Now I like the heavy edge and how Primal Scream have blended the electronic sounds with bass and guitar. Standout tracks include 'Kill All Hippies', 'Exterminator' and 'Blood Money'. The track 'Pills' is a low point because of the repetative and unimaginative vocals. This album has more angst than previous albums. If at first you don't like it, come back to it a while later.

It's the SAME Primal Scream who released Screamadelica and Vanishing Point. Don't you see?

totally agree, Finsaah. The passion, coherence and anarchy are all there again, without becoming stale "rock and roll" cliche. In it's way this is very much a follow up to screamadelica. The E dream has worn off and now the scream are politicised and radical. Great use of electronica means this album sounds fresh in 2011 a sthe day it was released.
