Rather Luke Warm
on 9 May 2013
After a series of outstanding albums releases throughout the nineties, Primal Scream were always destined to come back to earth with a bump.
Which is when we arrived at "Evil Heat", featuring this time a crunchy dance/rock sound (PS have never been afraid of rocking the boat when decided the musical direction of their records). But a lot of the tracks on the record are quite samey, with a slightly burnt out atmosphere over-shadowing the music.
If this had been Primal Scream's debut release it would have been classed as promising, but because of the quality of their back-catalogue its only an average album (although admittedly it has grown of me a little over the years).
But you do get Robert Plant playing harmonica on one the tracks, which is nice.
