4.0 out of 5 stars Music for the Monged, 8 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Primal Scream - Echo Dek (Audio CD)
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.
