5.0 out of 5 stars ...slippery music..., 30 Jan 2009
This review is from: Screamadelica (Audio CD)
Before this all I knew about Primal Scream came from tracks on the various 'Creation compilation' samplers I'd hunted down in local (alas, mostly long gone) indie shops. The Stonesy swagger I heard on those tracks hardly prepared me for this! Of course, the real innovation of 'Screamadelica' was as much in the MIX as the in the songs themselves, and this idea could and should have been the blueprint for more rock-rave-dance hybrids. Here in North America its impact maybe got a little lost and muted in the avalanche of mostly tuneless Seattle slobrock that flowed in the wake of 'Nevermind', but it still turned a lot of heads...

Now, Japan has just released 2CD 'mini lp' versions of the five studio releases from 'Give in...' to 'Riot City Blues'. The fact that they DIDN'T include 'Screamadelica' among these leads me to think/believe/hope that Sony is planning to give it the deluxe edition treatment. Providing they don't compress the life out of it, a sonic/packaging upgrade is most welcome. What a great, great album...
