It may sound like a soundclash conceived by graphic designers in Hoxton, but Primal Scream’s Evil Heat is oddly fantastic. The plot this time is to streamline the massive sounds of 2000's superb Xtrmntr, and to combine two currently potent genres: raw, sexually charged electro and raw, sexually charged rock'n'roll. The key, as ever with Primal Scream, is their collaborators. Hence old mucker Andy Weatherall returns to the fold and turns "Autobahn 66" into a beautiful motorik meditation that simultaneously recalls their own Screamadelicaand the autobahn fantasies of Krautrockers Neu!. Meanwhile, My Bloody Valentine's genius leader Kevin Shields feeds most of the other tracks through his disorientation and distortion effects deck, so that even the most rudimentary New York punkers like "Skull X" and "City" sound originally twisted rather than mere homages.

In the midst of it all there's Gillespie, posing like fury, yelping the received wisdom of a thousand dirty rock biogs, far more camp than he can possibly conceive. But Evil Heat, perhaps accidentally, captures the paradox at the heart of truly great rock'n'roll: that the old myths and ideas can still be reinvented, sometimes as comedy, sometimes as revolution, sometimes as both simultaneously.--John Mulvey

Try wiring your stereo up to a microwave oven and then play a combination of Can, The Stooges, Suicide, The Doors, Kraftwerk and Sigue Sigue Sputnik (!?!) and you'll really get some 'Evil Heat'. This is one of the most disturbing albums I've ever heard -from the jarring stylistic leaps to the actual lyrics themselves ('genetically engineered ultra violence'!) but it all somehow works. As always with The Scream there are some duffers ('Detroit' sounds like the Cd player is busted)but they're cancelled out by the corkers - City, Autobahn 66, Rise, SkullX.
Kev Shields does his customary jet engine production job on the rockin' numbers while Weatherall brings the mellow drugs with him. I imagine a lot of people will be put-off by the electro-throb pulse of the whole album but this isn't Dead or Alive, this is the sound of absolutely right now filtered through paranoid sci-fi fantasies and soft porn fever dreams.
Screamadelica seems a long time ago now and really is no longer relevant. Time to trade it in for this instead.

Primal Screams new offering is actually less compromised than 1999’s Xtmnr. Xtrmnr, far from being compromised itself, offered slight relief by being flawed towards its closure. The inclusion of 2 remixes, (one of which was by Chemical Brothers and sounded as if it belonged on Surrender rather than a Primal Scream album) an awful baggy style number which went nowhere (Insect Royalty) and a ballad which was a little dull (Keep Your Dreams) meant that the album trailed off and failed to match the raw intensity of the first 6 tracks (luckily, awesome finale Shoot Speed Kill Light stopped it from being a complete failure). In terms of this continuity, Evil Heat is a vast improvement, and sounds far more complete.
There is nothing on here that really matches those first 6 tracks (and its final track) but there are echoes of them to be found here; the hyped up guitar battering of Accelerator (City, Skull x), the fuzz bass of Exterminator (Some Velvet Morning, featuring kate moss who is actually very good), and the adrenaline rush of the first and proper mix of Swastika Eyes (Miss Lucifer, nowhere near as good as Swastika Eyes but is still a Jagz Kooner production, so they are similar).
Elsewhere we get warped psychedilia (Deep Hit of Morning Sun), the overrated 'krautrock' of Autobahn 66 (I was honestly expecting this to be special and its not) a track that sounds like Garbage, and Babylon Zoo(!

So...a new Primal Scream album and a new set of musical rules to be broken. The album kicks off with "Deep Hit Of Morning Sun" - a swirling, synth-driven cascade of noise with no rhythm section to speak of, an interesting opening for sure. Next we are into the current single "Miss Lucifer" - an uptempo Sigue Sigue Sputnik-esqe danceable number, also one of the album's high points. Next track is "Rise", previously titled "Bomb The Pentagon", this is a real pounding number and another favourite of mine. "Autobahn 66" comes next and is a change in mood and tempo, a hypnotic synth led mellower piece but with a real groove, apparently Bobby Gillespie's favourite track. The next track "Lord Is My Shotgun" is a synth blues number, is interesting and different but not a stand-out. It kicks back in with "Skull X" - a very rocking tune with wall of noise guitars remeniscent of "Accelerator". "Detroit" - previously titled "Dresden" follows with a metronome, out of tune synth groove, followed by the album's mellowest moment "Space Blues #2" which harks back to the days of "Screamadelica". "City" follows (previously "Sick City"), another stand out track and very Sex Pistols-esque. Very punky-very funky. Last track, the instrumental "A Scanner Darkly" finishes with another groovy synth led flourish.
In closing "Evil Heat" probably doesn't hit the same supreme heights that "Xtrmintr" reached but is still a superb album that is more innovative and fresher than the majority of current offerings. Definitely a must-buy if you are any sort of music fan.

Rather than sneaking up behind and tapping you on the shoulder, Primal Scream would rather hit you square in the face with a sledgehammer. Welcome back, by the way.
But this is a good thing. The One Man Walking Chemical Factory (Bobby Gillespie) and his gang have made one of the most focused, loudest and yes, evil albums of any age, let alone this one. The sheer ferocity of some of these songs is so unexpected from a band twice the age of say, The Parkinsons, but they never lose a sense of classic songwriting. That's experience for you.
The soothing, pulsing 'Autobahn 66' at one end of the spectrum, the flammable 'Skull X' and 'Detroit' at the other - this album is a spectrum of very, very good songs. Each and every one could be the soundtrack to your night and, yes! you can dance to them. Well, 'Sick City' demands that you jump around like a kangaroo with scolded feet, but you get the idea.
More focused than 'Screamadelica' and 'Vanishing Point', more tuneful than 'XTRMNTR', this album will stand the test of time. It also manages to blend every genre known to man (doesn't 'Detroit' sound like a twisted version of Kylie's 'I Can't Get You Out Of My Head'?). It's funny that The Scream had to produce their two pinnacle albums at the twilight (surely?) of their career, but I have to say that out of their music of the last 2 years, they have really thrown down the gauntlet to aspiring rock n rollers.
An excellent album which everyone should listen to, it's July but I'm confident this will not be bettered for the rest of this year (or at least for another two). Primal Scream, the most consistantly excellent band of their generation, deserve your applause. I'll give them a one man standing ovation myself. 10/10
Standout tracks - 'The Lord Is My Shotgun', 'Detroit', 'Rise'
